More time went by between posts than I realized! Well, there are lots of changes going on but I'll get to that next post. This one has nothing to do with chickens, horses, gardening, canning or anything of the sort. This is just telling you all something that's going to happen this summer... with twelve 40-something year women who used to go to high school together in San Diego. I have a friend who I used to go to high school with who now owns a farm in Illinois. Her husband writes songs for Sony and has some Los Angeles "connections". Since I was in 14, I have had a favorite band. I went and saw them 13 times in concert throughout my life. Even got back stage at 16 and got all their autographs. They are often thought of as only pop, but their beginnings were quite raw in the Los Angeles punk scene when I started following them. They put on and incredible show. They are a lot of things, but mostly they are FUN. I still feel like I'm 16 when I hear their music and haven't seen them in concert for several years. So, what is gonna happen on August 17th?? Well, my friend and her husband got 12 tickets to a concert... and we invited 10 more friends. Oh, but this is just the beginning!
It's the Go-Go's!! Not only 12 tickets, but 8 FRONT ROW CENTER tickets and 4 second row tickets at the incredible outdoor Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Oh, there's more!! Since most people live in San Diego and some along the coast before Los Angeles, they also got a Sony stretch limousine that "comfortably seats 15" which will pick each of us up individually along the way and drop us off at our friend's home which is about 10 minutes from the Greek Theater. Drink and appetizer orders will be taken from everyone 48 hours before the limo ride. We will have a great BBQ and dinner at my friend's in LA, go to the concert and have a sleepover. The following morning, the limousine will take us all back to San Diego.
So, a bunch of us girls who have loosely kept in touch, still really like each other, but haven't been around one another in many years are going to all get together and get crazy like we're kids again. As one friend said, "let your freak flags fly!!". We've all gone through different things over the years and we all need this night for very different reasons. Some just need to have a good time cause they have the blues, some have gone through health scares, one is currently going through chemotherapy, some are stressed and tired, but we all are still linked and need to have a great time. Oh, what a night it's gonna be. August 17th can't come quickly enough!!
