    I’ll be at the park for a short time this Sunday but have to leave early... for the Grammys! If anyone would like maps, please message me your address and I’ll mail a few from the park.

    I’ll leave around 11:30 for the Grammys. In fact, I dropped by backstage for yesterday’s rehearsal. I was able to go on stage briefly and got to hear Alicia Keys as she warmed up. It took me a moment to recognize the song she was playing. It was familiar but... there was no way it could be... Yes! It was! Maple Leaf Rag, which is heard daily on Main Street. It was a nice and unexpected taste of Disneyland in the middle of my day.

    There was a strict no-photo policy, especially in the backstage area. However, I did manage a few cool shots. The policy shouldn’t apply on Sunday.

    No, not nearly as great. Far, far better ;-).

    A few more pics. I realize that some of them are slightly grainy. They weren't always easy to get. I did the best I could. More details later -- I'm kind of busy for the next few days.

    The Grammys program.

    Brandi again.

    Kacey Musgraves after her four Grammy wins. Not an easy pic to get. This was setup for a post-show professional shoot and I kind of nudged my way in to the extent that I was comfortable.

    I didn't take this one but I thought y'all all would appreciate a pic that wasn't grainier than a granola bar ;-). Kacey M Grammys.jpg

    Went to the Grammy's directly from Disneyland. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday. :)

    Right? Several friends said the same. Come to think of it, so did I ;-).

    The maps arrived in the mail today. Made for a great Valentine's Day surprise for my daughter! She was very excited to get mail from Disneyland. Thanks so much! We will definitely pay it forward in April.

    So glad to hear it! Hope y’all have an amazing time! I’ll be there in two days, myself :-) (as much as we all hate 9:00 vs. 8:00 openings ;-)).
