OH MY GOSH !! I WON SOMETHING !!

Several places in the area have had contests for free tickets to one of the shows being held at The Fair this year.    Well, actually they do that every year,and I always enter but I never win.  Today in the mail were two free tickets to see the show by the Beach Boys on Sept 22nd, plus two free tickets for admission to The Fair grounds.   Now I understand the Beach Boys are no big deal to some of the younger crowd...but these guys are my age (maybe even a little older) and I did enjoy their music back in the days when they first came on the scene.  I even remember watching them on American Bandstand.

So now....let me see.....I won that free admission ticket yesterday and now I get to go on the 22nd for free.  Gosh, that means I have to go to The Fair 2 more times before Sept 24th.  Plus I have to find someone to go with me on the 22nd because old Bob is not going to be in town. He has flight privileges on Delta that are going to run out the end of October, so he's flying out in the next few days (as soon as there is a seat for him on stand by) to Germany or somewhere in Europe. He wants to do that before his flight privileges are gone.  And I don't blame him.  I'm just sorry he has to go alone..flying alone to L.A. to see his daughter & family is one thing but across the pond into another country is quite another story.  Anyway, I will have to find someone who is free to go with me that day or I can go alone and put my purse on the empty seat. What a dilemma !

LOL, i bet you have people lined up to go with you.  I had a dilemma similar to that with a Kenny Chesney concert.
I would love to go to Europe.....maybe some day.

Linda Lucky you getting tickets to see the "Beach Boys" I'm sure you will find someone to go along with you ~ would seem a shame to let your purse have a seat to itself lol ~ I know whatever happens you will enjoy yourself ~ Ally

Congrats to you Linda, you deserve it.  I loved the Beach Boys.  I know you won't have any trouble finding someone to go with you and you'll have a blast.  I would offer to go myself but of course I have to work.
