Time for another post from the road, but unlike last time, this time from a muuuuuch lower elevation. Our mountain portion of the trip is over now and I should be back to work on Project Auuurrrrnnnnooold very soon. The Annual Halloween Cookout date is approaching fast and so much to do before then. My ambitions of animated decorations may be in jeopardy but at least all the Posey’s (link here) will be able to make their debut!
Living in the moment, let’s get to today’s topic. Here’s a hint
All classic rock fans out there should have just flashed up their devil horns! That’s right, Linda and I had the opportunity to see one of our favorite bands in concert … again. We had the privilege of seeing them in St. Louis a number of years back and we both consider that one of the best concerts we have seen (yes, that one equals if not tops the Stones concerts we have been too – sorry Jagger but your concerts are slightly tainted due to the price gouging you have to go through to be able to see them. This time we went North to see them in a place that makes all Cardinal fans shudder.
Thanks to Linda being on the ball and reserving early, we were able to get a hotel room less than 10 blocks from the field. This took a lot of the pre-concert stress out of the equation by not having to deal with the Wrigley area parking. The seats were not as close as they were in St. Louis, but still not too bad. We opted for the outfield seats which were covered – rain wasn’t going to dampen our night. This is the shot from our seats.
I left the ladies arm in the shot at the bottom to remind me to mention how drunk this woman was in front of us. There were two couples seated two rows down from us. Both ladies had been drinking long before arriving – one lady (the owner of the arm above) was totally smashed and kept falling all over the place. When she wasn’t picking herself off the ground she was dancing to the music in her head… and only in her head. The lush was pretty much the jester for everyone that could see her. People were even walking by specifically to take a picture of her on their phones. It got so bad during the concert that her husband (I think) was continually yelling at her to sit – pulling her belt down into her seat when she didn’t comply.. didn’t matter, she would pop up 3 minutes later to continue dancing to her inner song.
