Just popping in briefly. One of these days I'll compose something at length... I have long overdue thanks and recs to share ::sigh::

Alas, life has been distractingly busy. Not necessarily in a good way but far from bad either.

Anyway, the reason for this post is because I'm at home alone today with the dogs and I'm gleefully bursting with something I want to shout at the top of my lungs that the dogs just simply don't comprehend...

EAGLES + DIXIE CHICKS = ABSOFREAKINGLUTELY AWESOME BEYOND AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

They started their 2010 summer tour in Toronto last night and hubby and I were there - our first concert in I don't know how long (probably over 15 years). Floor seats and worth. every. penny.

The Dixie Chicks were in perfect voice and put on one helluva show but, as much as I am their fan, I was there to see The Eagles. From their a cappella opening of Seven Bridges Road to Desperado closing out the show's encore set, I was mesmerized. Thanks, el1ie , for putting this bug in my ear. This is a memory I'll cherish forever.

There just isn't anything like seeing the Eagles preform live. Been years, but it was unforgettable. Glad you had a fantastic time.:)

The Eagles are one of the few bands I would actually love to see in concert. I'm so glad you got to go--and paired with the Dixie Chicks is just an added bonus!

I bet it's been close to 20 yrs since hubby and I have gone to a concert together. For various logical/practical reasons I've let The Eagles bypass us a few times but this year decided it was now or never. And it was sooooo worth it!

OMG!! I have been so busy watching my brains dribble out of my ears that I totally forgot!!! Now I'm jealous all over again!!!

I'm sooooo glad you had an awesome time! You didn't say Dixie Chicks were opening! Cool!

Don't know how close you are to finalizing dates, but there are some good seat sales on at westjet right now for Van.... not that I've booked... haven't even booked Texas yet!!!

Hey, thanks for the heads up on Westjet. Alas, I'm not at all sure about dates yet... likely flying there the Thursday but no idea about the return - where I'll be flying from or to. I'm almost as bad as you for not knowing where I'll be LOL

And I'm still feeling the afterglow of the concert!
