Running out of hat pictures.....but that's ok because I am running out of days to count!!!! Don't know if I will be able to get on tomorrow. We aren't taking a computer with us this weekend and I don't know if I will try to do anything from the phone. But for today - here is the Big Cheese himself and his Number 1 Girl!!










5 Hat Days to go!

Spent the night in Indianapolis, supper at Cracker Barrel (always yum!)

Drove on to Columbus the next day and got there around 1-ish. Checked in, room was ready, changed shoes and went to the fair. I didn't realize we were going over there that early, I thought we would go eat lunch somewhere and go to the fair later. This is where it got a little scarey. We pulled in to the parking lot and realized how far we had to walk to get in to the fair grounds. Not a huge distance....but back 6 months ago I hated having to walk from the front of WalMart to the cart corral, let alone all the way from the parking lot....so walking all the way across the lot into and through the fairgrounds was daunting. But victory was mine! We walked in and halfway up the midway until we found an indoor (read "air conditioned") building that had various booths of displays. In the middle of it it had a little food court area. As much as I was really wanting some Deep Fried Kool Aid or Chocolate Covered Bacon an air conditioned table beat walking the midway with a corn dog. So Danny had a cheeseburger, and I had some General Tso chicken and rice from Chinese stand.

We spent the next few hours looking at displays in that building and a few others, we walked the length of the midway. I did take a couple breaks for a few minutes, but overall I probably walked more than I have since my Disney trip in 2007 when I thought I was going to die.

A little after 5 we went over to the Center where Meat Loaf was performing and waited until doors opened at 5:30. The center held just over 10,000 people and while not every single seat was full I didn't see any sections where there were large areas empty. The two seats next to us were empty, but a couple days after we had ordered our tickets we went back to see about getting another one for Ryne and the closest we could get was about 3 rows away.

There was a family in front of us with 2 little girls, the youngest was about 6-ish and the older 10-ish. The little girl sang along with just about every (innappropriate ) lyric he sang, and the older girl was recording with her phone throughout the whole concert. I would say ages 6-60, but heck, Meat is 63, so 6 - 80. Doesn't sound as good, but is much more accurate. And everyone there seemed to love it. He played for a little over 2 hours and, while his voice isn't as strong and clear as it was in 1977 on the original Bat album, well, that he was half his age then Once he got going on some of the songs though he was just as great as ever!

It was a great weekend! Probably not the smartest idea to go out of town just days before vacation - but well worth it.

And now I know ahead of time that if I want to run to Downtown Disney for a couple hours I can do it without the scooter without worrying that it will be too draining. I also know I can't do a park....at least with the guys. But since Animal Kingdom is the one I always skip because it requires a bus, maybe on my day and a half after they leave I can spend some time over there at a slower pace. I would be guaranteed to stop and see my surroundings because I sure couldn't keep going at a full pace all day.
