Howie has pulled his fare share of gorgeous women in Boston(or wherever he goes for that matter). However, this afternoon he established his personal best by wooing Elaine Irwin Mellencamp at the Four Seasons in Boston. We ran into her and her two sons (Hud and Spec) after having brunch with Cindy and Lorelle. John Mellencamp was also with her, however he walked on a bit as to not draw too much attention to himself.
To be honest, I did not know exactly who she was when we met. Both Lorelle and I thought she was some famous model but could not place her face. John Mellencamp did not stop so we only saw his back. Having gained a few pounds and looking a bit disheveled (t-shirt tucked into a pair of sweat pants), he was not that recognizable. Indeed, we all thought to ourselves…"what the hell is she do with that guy??" It was Cindy who pointed out it was the Mellencamps and informed us that he was performing tonight at the Boston Esplanade during the Fourth of July celebration.
Elaine, Hud and Spec were all very polite and gracious as they doted over Howie. No doubt this was a very cool experience for Cindy, Lorelle and I. Howie , on the other hand, regarded them as just some more needy fans .
