SPOKANE, Wash. - When kindergarten teacher, Janet Anselmo got last-minute, front-row seats to the Bon Jovi concert on October 6th at the Spokane Arena, she didn't think should could get any more excited. She was wrong. She has been a Bon Jovi fan since 1981.

When we say "fan," we mean "FAN" in every sense of the word. She even has a photo to prove it. There is a picture of her from the 80's standing in her bedroom, the wall and ceiling of her room plastered with Bon Jovi photos. Anselmo says it has been a lifelong dream of hers to just meet Bon Jovi someday.

Little did she know, that Sunday concert, her dream would come trued. "The entire thing seemed like an out-of-body experience, she said. Bon Jovi stopped the concert not once, but two times to talk to her and her only. By the end of the night she had an autograph on a Bon Jovi centerfold she had brought to the concert from more than 20 years ago, a kiss on her hand and she got to sing with him.

Bon Jovi has even put up a photo of on his website under the Spokane concert gallery of him holding the centerfold she brought to the concert.

The Oregonian reports that the Clatsop County sheriff's office accused Marlin Lee Larson of several crimes after the boater told investigators he couldn't see where he was driving because the dash of his boat was blocking his view when he was sitting down.
