My husband’s grandmother is 93 and she just moved into a “home”. As she was meeting people, one lady said to her: ”Don’t worry honey, I will be your guardian angel.” Grandma Helen looks at her and says, “You look more like you could be my bodyguard.”
The Other Woman - Well not really. And she doesn’t know it. But my husband has had a crush on all the Corr women, but then he found out that Sharon Corr was going on tour in America and even better she was going to be at the Kessler in Dallas, TX. Only about 6 hours from Enid.
So he purchased tickets and told me that I was going with him - sort of a mini-vacation.
Then there was the worry that we wouldn’t be able to go because of his uncle’s death. But it all worked out.
We got to Dallas, TX and signed into our hotel. More about that later. We got to the Kessler early. Once inside, I was pleasantly surprised. It is set up very nicely. We ordered a drink and some bacon, toffee popcorn. Very good. Then we were allowed to go in and sit down. Dave had a surprise waiting for me. We were seated at the front table and there were flowers on the table for me. You can see the flowers in some of the pictures.
Both Sara Hickman (first act) and Sharon Corr mentioned our anniversary and sang a song for us. Sara’s was “Aren’t we ever going to have sex again?” and Sharon’s was “Dream a Little Dream” which was perfect.
Dave really made me feel special. And he really seemed to be relaxed. His job or life in general has been stressing him out. And I know he really had to do a lot of planning to get the flowers on the table without me knowing. And I know how much he hates to have to set stuff like that up. But I know he wanted to show me how much he loved me. He’s a goof - I already knew. But it is very very nice to be reminded sometimes.
Sharon played the fiddle and sang and told us a little bit about herself. And afterwards we waited around to get a picture with her.
We had to go back to Michigan for Dave’s uncle’s funeral. I didn’t take any pictures there as it seemed inappropriate. But the day of the visitation Dave and I did sneak out to go to Buddy’s Pizza. This is the crust we have been striving to make here at home. I think that we obtained a secret recipe ingredient that we will try if we can tomorrow. If I can find the ingredient.
Then we had to record the massive amount of snow in Michigan, which makes me glad we live in Oklahoma now, but sad for my family who still live in Michigan.
Finally we had time to relax with Mom and Dad Ruthenberg, Dave’s sister, Diana, and the two maine coon monster cats. Dave’s parents are extremely sweet because they save the guest room for us and do not allow the cats to be in that room. That way I have at least one room where I am not bothered with the cat allergies. Plus if I make sure not to pet the beautiful beasts (and sometimes that is hard) and wash my hands and face before I go to bed, I can stay fairly allergy symptom free. They call them Stan and Ollie.
All and all we had a good time even though it was for such a sad reason.
If I can get my act together. Posts about my trip to Michigan and posts about my trip to Dallas. I hope they will be fun and entertaining.
My husband surprised me with flowers placed on the table for the Sharon Corr c concert. What a sweetheart he is.
Now we are at the Kessler theater for the Sharon Corr concert.
Hunkys old fashioned hamburgers. Delicious
French toast at Brazil Cafe in Dallas tx
parsnips….I don’t know when I started eating parsnips. I think it was when I was in Somerset center and somebody gave me some from their garden. And I love them cooked in butter and fried.
