Hurricane - Schmurricane!

I have waited my entire adult life to see guys like these (I'm not sure what that says about me and my life, but - oh well) and hell would've had to have frozen over to have kept me from this show - that or a stinkin' hurricane!!!!!

As you may recall, last Friday night into Saturday morning Hurricane Hannah came roaring ashore the Carolina coast, Wilmington to be exact. It made it 2 hours inland to the Triangle area at about 3:30 in the morning last Saturday. I know and can confirm what the weather man saith 'cause I was pacing the house watching it happen. I was checking to make sure no tree branches had fallen on the cars. To see that my outside kitties were snug on the front porch. To make sure there was no water in the basement (we've never had water in the basement but with all that wind the likelihood is greater). Just to check out the homestead. OK - really...I was up pacing and worrying because we had tickets to see ZZ Top Saturday night and that stinkin' hurricane was messin' with my plans!!! And I had new pink cowboy boots to wear people! YES - PINK ones!!!!! You've heard me talk about my love of cowboy boots here. Wait 'till you get a load of these babies... They were a hit all their own at the show! Did I mention that a little band called Brooks & Dunn was also at this get together? Hence, the cowboy boots.

I am not a "rocker". But this was the music of my time, of my high school days, of the '80s. I put ZZ Top in the "back in the day" category with the likes of Queen, Journey, AC/DC, Boston, Lynard Skynard and the like. Ahhh, that right there was some fun...

The clouds parted, the sun shone bright, the humidity reached record levels, the show went on, we had a blast and made a memory... and I wore pink cowboy boots.

(you will NOT be disappointed)

(not a good angle but you feel the love)

(that's Kix Brooks, "Frank" and Ronnie Dunn - OMG)

(and the show hadn't even started yet)
