Default Birthday Surprise!

So there we were,hubby & I, sitting at breakfast having a wonderful time when he asked if I felt like going dancing tonight for my birthday celebration (actually it's next Tuesday!). I said I didn't feel up to it since I had a little bit of a sore throat, whereupon he said, "Well, how about if we go watch others dance!" And he handed me an envelope with two tickets to see Riverdance tonight at the Pantages Theater! Wellll, I am beyond excitement! I've seen them many times on TV and during some of the parades in New York, so I am very thrilled! (This was after he gave me a pair of beautiful Tanzanite earrings in the shape of butterflies!)

Soooo, I have been taking it easy all day so that I will feel good at tonight's performance! I just lovvvve a surprise!

Hope everyone is staying warm or cool in whatever weather you are experiencing today...there's been some strange stuff going on across the nation.....

Thank you all, my Cruisemates cyber-friends! We also had a wonderful (and terribly expensive!) dinner at the Hollywood & Vine restaurant which was just fabulous! The show was terrific....amazing what these people can do on stage and for 2 hours! And the weather cooperated, even tho it was wet, it didn't rain heavy until we were back in the car and well on our way home.

The Pantages was built in 1930 and it's neat to see all of the old time architecture in the building...

Thanks again for the nice birthday wishes, and I hope everyone is doing well whever they are....
