So far so good!

I just got home from the hospital - luckily all went well!  On the way to the hospital, I noticed a nature center so I might check it out tomorrow and take a few photos...you never know what you might see!

Going missing again...

My roommate is having MAJOR surgery and I have offered to take care of her during her recuperation. Hopefully, I'll be able to post but I won't be going anywhere interesting for a couple of weeks so my posts will probably consist of lame links, LOL!

Rod Stewart Concert Continued...

Before we continue, I'd like to say that 45 years ago, last night, I was in heaven. Does that make sense? It will.

45 years ago (last night) I was at Dodger Stadium eagerly waiting for a certain concert to begin. My first concert ever.....THE BEATLES!!!

Oh what a night!!! (I'll never forget it!)
 
I've never been one to say that I loved Rod Stewart. You know, his songs would come on the radio and I'd listen but I wouldn't go out and buy his music. However....I have to say that I was honestly amazed by his performance. His band is incredible!




 













Here's the jumbo screen at the back of the stage.


Shaking his booty!



I got so into the concert that I stopped taking pictures, LOL!
Here is the giant poster outside of the Coliseum.



Time to walk back to our room...


The night time view...



I had a BLAST!!!

A concert in Vegas!

My cousin won two tickets to see Rod Stewart PLUS a night's stay at Caesar's Palace...so we went!

It was great and he really rocked the house. Enjoy the photos!

The Expo

I'm not gonna bother you with a rehash of the Expo because you can find that a a zillion websites. I will, however, share some photos of things that I found interesting. But...that will have to wait a few days. My cousin won tickets to see Rod Stewart in Vegas and guess who she's taking with her? ME! So I'll be back and posting by Friday.

I'm going to the D23 Expo!

Yes, it true. Just the other day I got the good news that I would be going to the Expo with the rest of the Disneyland Gazette staff! I am THRILLED!

I will take PLENTY of pics and in the meantime, will be making mini updates on Facebook and Twitter using Shoutomatic so keep an eye out for those audio bits.


P.S. Sorry for the lack of posts - been helping my cousin move.

A walk through DCA Part 3

In this, our final installment of a Walk through DCA, we look at the adorable posters that hang on the lower level of the Silly Symphonies attraction...





This window display caught my eye so you get two views of it.



This is one of my favorite views of DCA.


A little detail that I noticed hanging way up high...


An unusual water fountain over in the Bug's Life area.



This sign is so cute.


I decided to ride Flick's Flyers...Looking up a giant looks-like-a-walnut but I know it isn't!

A quick snapshot before we take off!


See ya later...

A walk through DCA Part 2

Ya, I know...I said I'd post when I got back but I had some extra time so I threw this one up so you guys would stop complaining, LOL!

Here are a couple of shots of the new dining area which I love, love love.



At first I thought this was a beer joint but they sell soda, too.



These were taken from the Silly Symphonies lower balcony.







That's it - more tomorrow!
