daughter is having surgery on her feet june 5th. has hard nodules on the bottom of her feet that cause lots of pain. she will be out of motion for a while.
My thoughts are with both of you.

This first one is to show you how close we are. You will see me pop my face into the screen briefly so you can tell how close. I am amazed because he was a dot on the stage in the past. Front row tickets cost $2000.00 face value (includes sound check) rows 2-5 are $1500.00 (includes sound check) so us getting these seats for a much lower cost is a dream come true and we had the view they had (to the side of course)! This is before his first encore, you will also see where Paul walks off behind stage. Not too many people can see him in that area.




The second video is his song, Live and Let Die, with lots of pyrotechnics. Being that close you could really feel the burn and the floor shake! Even when I saw him at Cowboys Stadium in nosebleed seats you could feel the heat.

If you're not interested in the song you can skip to, 0:25, to see the explosions.
Sorry the video is shaky, we are amateurs.


Very cool!!

Thanks for sharing.

I hope the week moves quickly for you.

Good evening.
It was beautiful out today, sunny but not too hot. My husband decided to take a break from working inside the house. We planted some flowers and then he continued to do yard work. My girls are all in and the two that worked today are exhausted. The outlets were crazy busy. My daughter said the line at Haagen Dazs was out the door all day. I have a feeling it is going to be like that all summer. She didn't look too happy when she got home. I think we may be job hunting again soon, lol. Anyway, the girls go back to school tomorrow so my alarm will be going off at 5:00 a.m.
Goodnight everyone!!!

That's not too far away from Ben & Jerry's Factory, right? Didn't you go there last year?

I would love to go there.

Also, I just read that some areas of northern Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York received 34 inches of snow over the weekend. Crazy!

That is LC's favorite character, Little Critter, he has quite a few of those books, including that one. He loves him.

Smart kitty, I think she wanted a cookie.

Good evening,


Very busy day here, got up and mowed and trimmed the yard. Had a cookout with all the fixin's, but we forgot to cook our corn on the cob. I hate when we do that. I am exhausted, I work my late shift tomorrow for inventory and have Wednesday off. Just listening to some rare recordings of The Move I discovered online awhile back, some amazing stuff.

Headed to sleep soon.


Good night MMC!
