I will try to leave you all alone with all this Paul McCartney stuff but wanted you to see these 2 videos that we took. The whole experience is like Christmas to me!

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, CAH.
It is amazing how much the tickets go for today. Yesterday you mentioned the rock concerts you saw when you were in your teens. I am an 80's girl. I saw a ton of rock groups in concert when I was a teenager. All of the "hair bands". But we only paid around 20 bucks for a ticket back then. We could afford to go to and see whatever band we wanted.

What does that mean?

It's an option in the "edit options" category under the "user cp" tab on the top of the page. It basically just doesn't allow people to see when you are online or not. You are just invisible.

I originally turned it on because I was getting burned out and had planned to take a month or two off from posting this spring. I wanted to be able to lurk and read what was going on though without you all knowing I was here. Then Louann passed and I decided that I couldn't leave.


So now I'm just doing it to be mysterious.
