The Eagles on Saturday...and the Aerosmith on Sunday...
We don't have a lot of recent-(and by recent, I mean 30+ years)-concert history to compare these two concert to, but they were so good!
Two bucket list items achieved in one weekend....
🎼 Life's been good to me so far...🎸

We had some snow land yesterday. It always makes me sad to have to start to deal with it. It should melt by the weekend
Ick on the white stuff! Will be coming our way soon!


My flight out of MCO was great.
Connecting flight out of Atlanta was not great, but made it home and that is all that counts.
Yay! always nice to be home! I'm sure hubby and the cats are thrilled to have you back!

@Lynne G - nice Mummy pic! Have fun at SW today! :)

Happy Hump Day! Love the camel pic, Lynne!!

BRR- cold this morning- but warming to the 60s with bright sunshine! Beautiful fall day! :goodvibes Still trying to get all caught up at work!

Glad you had a great vacay in Vegas @buckeev !

On the travel news, we will be going down to Florida in two weeks. We want to check on Erin- she's still recuperating after her knee surgery in September. So, it'll be a working vacation- helping to cook, clean, etc. to give Kyle a break while he studies for his exams. :thumbsup2

    mac...we were so lucky with our weather this past trip. We had three five minute bursts of rain the whole trip and that was it. One day we were in the room and there was a torrential downpour that lasted half an hour. Didn't affect us though...….most of the time it was hot and humid, then even hotter!!!

    disxuni, yes there is a photo op on Spiderman.

    buckeev…….wow!!! I`m impressed......Eagles and Aerosmith....I`ve seen neither of them, but would love to see The Eagles!!! Glad you had such a nice trip...….

    Yes Patty, too early for snow!


    Looks a beautiful day outside today....only went out this morning for a few bits and bobs.....

    Changed our overnight hotel to the Marriott instead of the Radisson for our trip next month......we now have two Executive rooms with their Executive room access, instead of two adjoining rooms with one bathroom at the Radisson.....and it`s even a little bit less expensive.....not often I manage that one!!!

    And finally booked the car too! Can`t believe we left is as late.....but, all booked now.

    No Kyle for dinner tonight, so making spicy meatballs and hassleback potato for us...….

    Time for a cup of ginger tea...…..

    I’ll age myself here and say I absolutely love those two groups!
    They are/were great in concert
    And this was back in the days when it was easy to get tickets to their concerts
    Plus tickets were cheap ...

    Spidey did have the ride pics.
    Looking back at other past threads, those using the photo pass purchase have the frames of spiderman in them with the posters.

    Hooray!
    Discxuni is hitting the motherland this weekend!
    You will have fun, I just know it!

    Happy Wednesday!!! Can't believe half the week is over already. We had a fun weekend at a local Oktoberfest event. Lots of fun and laughs with friends we have known most of our lives. Always a good time too when beer and old stories are involved.

    Weather has turned here. Finally got some rain after 3 weeks and temps down into the 60s. Had to run to Belk yesterday to get some new cool weather work clothes since winter stuff is still in the attic. Don't think I have much up there anyway, plus gives me an excuse to go shopping.:P

    Have a great week!

    Watching an old episode of Midsomer Murders.......always fun!!!
    Love Midsomer Murders. I have watched all 20 seasons. Looking forward to season 21 airing in the US. Watching Father Brown and Hinterland now. I am easily hooked on any murder mysteries that come out of the UK. Far and away the best!

    Does it show my age if I say I'm a fan of those two bands? 😉

    Also, thanks for you two answering the Spidy question. I knew there were pictures!

    You have a Belk store?
    When I lived in the Chicago area, none there.
    Moved to GA and we have them in town.

    Many years ago (early 1990's) there was a special sale/discount for AP at UO if you had the code from Belk.
    I was able to get the code from a friend that lived in FL

    Have renewed my pass each year since then.

    I should google Belk and see what states have them.
    Thought it was just southern states where they operated.

    :wave2: Doing a drop in!!! There seems to not be many papers needing my attention on my desk today :rolleyes1 So I guess I get to play a bit today lol

    Just came back home at 8:45 from Taco Bell....
    I was tired when I came home today but put everything away and suitcase back in the closet
    Played with the cats
    Read my postal mail
    And then just piddle the day away.......
    I hope your enjoying your time home. It's always nice to go away...but it is always nice to get back home again too.
    Keeping an eye on the weather, but I'm still leaning towards doing a quick trip to MK on Saturday to hit a few rides before it gets too hot. A friend of mine who has a pass is coming along. She was talking smack about going to the mall this weekend and I talked smack about going to Disney. So luckily she has a pass and maybe we can hit two birds with one stone. Apparently, she needs to do some shopping before the cruise. I don't know what, but I'll let her do her thing. I'll try to not have her be a bad influence me. I don't need anything. For now.
    That just sounds like FUN!!!!!

    WOW....sooo jealous. I LOVE going to concerts. There are still some on my bucket list that I need to see.

    It is nice to get away to see them. The fact that you get to go to Florida is a bonus!!!!!! It's nice to escape to warmer weather...even if you might have to do some extra work.

    No Kyle for dinner tonight, so making spicy meatballs and hassleback potato for us...….
    Yum!!! That sounds delicious!!! We are having a chicken stirfry tonight. With rice for the boys and caulflower rice for the hubby and I. I actually prefer it that way. Who would have thought :laughing:
    plus gives me an excuse to go shopping.:P
    I had to pick up a few things when we were in the big city visiting the DD. I came home with some hew boots, jeans, a sweater and some new sneakers for the gym...now I just have to get my butt back to the gym :rotfl:

    Not sure what I'll do to fill my day today...but I'm sure I'll find something to kill the time today. I don't get many days like this. And with winter coming...our busy season starts here.
    Have a great day everyone

    Sweet, Kfish. I love the holidays down here, as all is open and decorated. Oh and did not know you live in PA too.

    Quick good afternoon. Work was mostly slow today except when dealing with the insurance companies. I swear the insurance companies are going to drive me to drink.

    Charade...that sounds like it was extremely painful. I have heard that kidney stones are VERY painful to pass. That doesn't sounds like a story that people who have that want to hear.
    I actually didn't have too much pain with my first kidney stone. My doctor said it was because it wasn't moving around. It did make me very sick though.

    Keeping an eye on the weather, but I'm still leaning towards doing a quick trip to MK on Saturday to hit a few rides before it gets too hot. A friend of mine who has a pass is coming along.
    Sounds like a great morning. I wish I had done this when I was still living in FL.

    My husband would have loved that. He is trying to convince me to spend Christmas in Vegas one year.

    You have a Belk store?
    We have one here in our little city.

    Yep, until Mac showed me, we did get a Spider-Man ride pic.
    Cool pic.

    Hagride!!!!
    Awesome!

    Penguins and Dolphins, oh my:
    Love the pictures. I'd like to go back to Sea World some day.

    Just found out that I don't have to go back to work until January 6th! Just booked two weeks in Orlando for the Christmas break!
    I'm envious. I would love to go back to Orlando for Christmas. Just can't this year though.

    I think I'm going to go watch some TV. I have been binge watching Murder, She Wrote. I don't know why I never watched the show when it was originally on.

    Charade......we ADORE Murder she Wrote.......but, I love Angela Lansbury and loved the show from first time around.

    Got my niece who is now 36 into watching it too.......it’s a perfect way to pass a winters afternoon or a cold day anytime.......didn’t like the ones she wasn’t in very much, she narrated a whole season at one point.....and only appeared at the beginning and the end of the episode. But, the rest of them we love and probably know them word for word......:blush: They show them here continually on several channels.



    Watching The Apprentice right now........every year we think they can’t get a bigger bunch of wallies than the previous year......and every year they get worse........they are so dreadful it’s funny!!

    One of the Hallmark channels shows it between 11 pm and 3 am. I started watching on nights when I couldn’t sleep. I recently discovered that Amazon Prime has season 2 available. I wish they had the others too,

    So, it's CS week and today is trivia day. Got three chances to win a gift card. Since a lot of people will get the correct answer it is a random draw out of all the people who answered correctly. It ain't much of a prize and I probably won't win, because so many are participating, but it's fun.

    The theme is music and it's a good thing I'm an old soul, because if I was a youngin' who didn't know better I'd fail at these questions:

    Who is widely credited with coining the term "Rock and Roll"?
    Who was the first female artist inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?
    Paul Ramon, Percy Thrillington and Clint Harrigan are aliases used by what legendary rock and roller?


    Btw, already answered these questions, so I'm not putting these in here to cheat. Thought you'd guys be curious of the questions.

    Sure do. We are still in the south, just more northerly south :) Our store was originally a Leggett's Department store but Belk bought them out about 20 years or so ago. There are 3 within 50 miles around where I live.
