Long time, no post

I really didn't plan to take such a long break - just happened that way! Brian was here 4 days and Timothy 9 days so we had a nice long holiday. I will save some of the photos and stretch it out a bit.

The boys came in on Wednesday and Thursday - we didn't do much, just visited and made a trip to the hardware store (more on that later) The reason they came in that early is we had tickets for a concert on Friday afternoon. We went to see The Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

Hubby took well over a hundred pics - until the lady next to him asked him not to take so many!
(they should be click-able)

I picked out ten to show you. Note all the over-head equipment - they told us how many tons it weighs but I forget.

We had really good seats

Timothy has seen them several times (he goes every Christmas) but this was the first time for the rest of us.

Our seats were close enough that we could feel the heat from the flames on stage - I can only imagine how hot it must have been for them!

I included this one just to show you how close to the audience the equipment got when they went moving it around.

Then they ran out on it while playing

Again with the flames - it was really warm this time!

See the eyes and teeth? Hard to get pics of it actually 'opening and closling'
It was really a great show. If you ever get a chance to see them you really should go!

I'm now trying to tackle all the post-holiday clean-up. All the decor has been put away but there is still the cleaning and putting 'regular' stuff back out along with all the everyday things to get done.

I'll share more of our holiday next time!

We went a couple of years ago-they put on quite a show. We were on the floor, and that year there was a stage just a few rows in back of us. It did get really hot!

Well, hi there stranger!! ;D
I'm glad you had such a wonderful holiday!
My son and his wife went to see the Trans Siberian a few months ago. They really enjoyed it. Mercy, that stage was all afire, wasn't it??
Looking forward to seeing your posts, again, dear friend.
Have a great day@
