The Rest of the Story( or weekend as it were)

First off - pictures.  When Cat and John came to the house before dinner, we realized that we were dressed identically.  So of course, we had to have a picture.  It was truly sad :).  Then here's the after - dressed up and ready to go.

Those are our night out pictures.  There were more things we should have had a picture of.  Catherine and I had an Animal House moment when we went dancing.  We had some guys that were quite interested in dancing with us and it was kind of a " May we dance with your dates" scenario.  But the guys found it amusing and no one was hurt :).

After recovery on Sunday, Monday was the Joe Cocker/Steve Miller Band concert( pictures to come).  We went to our friend Penny's early, had some lovely drinks:

Here's the recipe:

Mix 3 Beers( any kind)
3/4 cup of vodka
1 can of frozen lemonade
Garnish with cherries

I can't remember what Penny called it - Pink Panty something.  We used to have a drink called Pink Panty Pulldowns, but we used Sprite and a LOT more vodka.  Now I know it sounds a little strange, but the drink was really quite refreshing and I am NOT a beer drinker.  Vodka yes, beer no.  I plan on making them this weekend for some friends.

Anyway, once we polished off a pitcher of those, it was time to go to the concert.  It's at the new outdoor ampitheater in N. Ga.  I LOVE watching concerts outdoors.  It's much more relaxing than being squashed in with a bunch of people.

Joe Cocker was AWESOME - truly a master.  He played my favorite song of his " You Can Leave your Hat On" and also all of his hits.  Then Steve Miller came on.  He was good till he had some blues guy come and sing in the middle of the set.  The guy sang like 5 songs and while he was very good, it was kind of a downer.

I did get up and dance some though, despite the dangerous slope on the lawn.  And I had an admirer come and dance with me which was fun.  He was very polite( not scary like the guys from Sat night) and kissed my hand as he left to go back to his seat.

The concert was on very late and we didn't get home till 1:30.  Reilly had been left in the capable hands of a petsitter but he was very happy to see us.

So I am off to continue my quest to catch up on a little sleep. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
