...the rest of the story

Okay, here's the story on my Elton John/Billy Joel Face 2 Face tour tix...

I was home sick on Monday (a rarity) and happened to check out Facebook. One of my FB friends posted that she had 2 tickets to sell, and was selling them at half price. Several FB messages later, the deal was made. Now first of all, I very RARELY miss work due to illness, and very RARELY check out Facebook at work. So it was in the stars for me to miss work, check Facebook at the right time, and get tickets to the biggest concert Wichita has seen in years! I was not a big NEW arena fan, and in fact, voted AGAINST the new arena. But I have to admit, Sir Elton and Billy would NOT have come to Wichita with the Face 2 Face tour without the new arena. So....I have to eat my words.

I can't count the number of concerts I've attended in my life. The first one was in 1969 at Henry Levitt Arena when I saw the Osmond Brothers. I've seen so many entertainers that I can't even remember all of them. But I must say that Elton and Billy have to be #1 or #2 in all time great concerts! Elton sings in a lower pitch now and can't hit all the high notes, but he's the one act I've wanted to see for so long but was always beyond my reach. Now I can say I've seen one of the top all-time performers!  The concert started with Elton and Billy singing together for 4 songs. Elton then performed for over an hour. Then Billy performed for over an hour. Then they came back together and sang 6 songs! It was a 3 1/2 hours extravaganza.

Susan and I - ready for the biggest concert ever! Oh, and we were interviewed by Channel 12 before the concert...yes - I've now been on TV!

I am still blown away by this concert....

I don't think Bon Jovi or Brooks & Dunn can compare...no offense to those acts, but...

SIR ELTON & BILLY - YOU'RE THE BEST!

Oh, and some of my friends from work were ready for the concert too:

Joyce & Loretta in their Sir Elton finest!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
