Fun in Texas


On Saturday morning the Hubster was reading the local paper when I heard him holler from the kitchen in disappointment. It turned out the Bellamy Brothers were playing just 50 miles up the road in Texas that night and he would have wanted to go. I told him to call the venue, so he did and we got the second to last pair of tickets for the show.

So Saturday night turned into a great date night unexpectedly. We both smartened up, had dinner at the best steakhouse in our area and then saw a world class act in a smalltown venue.

What a great show and we were just a few rows back to enjoy it. The Bellamy Brothers have had many hits over the years but perhaps the most famous are Redneck Girl, If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me and their most famous song, Let Your Love Flow.

They were great entertainment but best of all it was just down the road for us, and living where we do that's a rare treat believe me.

I was really annoyed over the w/e. I found out that Kool and the Gang were performing an hour away from us, at our state fair. Unfortunately, we had a prior commitment - a barbecue with Husband's colleagues. Couldn't really flake out of that one. Grrr.

I'm laughing at Iota - wouldn't have pegged her for a Kool and the Gang type of gal!
