The Fab Four

Song - In My Life by The Beatles

This Thursday night, I am heading to Candlestick Park for a Paul McCartney concert with my bud Jill who gave me a ticket for my birthday in June.

She and I were both there in 1966 for the Beatles final concert (although no one but a few insiders knew it was to be their last one).  Jill & I didn't know each other at the time but none the less we were there!

Tickets went for $4.5o and $6.50, and the Beatles played for about 33 minutes.

You know the girls that screamed?  Well I was a crier.  I cried for the entire concert.

I still have my Beatle wig, Beatle scarf and Beatle cards.

I remember my grandparents buying me my first Beatle album at Sam's. I'm hoping that I still have that boxed away somewhere!

Right now Jill and I are trying to come up with outfits from the 60's to wear to the concert.  Never a dull moment with that girl!

Now if I can just remember where I left my Go-Go boots!!!

Song - Scenes From An Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel

 We spent the weekend in Santa Cruz.....

Mr. B & Andy built a gate on the cabin deck for our doggies and kiddies!  Looks great!

Then the carrot was going wine tasting in the afternoon.

Saturday we went to Windy Hill (Windy Oak) and Nicholson.  Both were great!

Then we returned to the cabin for a BBQ.  
Amazingly we stayed up and visited on the deck until after midnight.  
Such a warm weekend!

Very relaxing after a long day of work and a late lunch at Gayle's Bakery in Capitola!

On Sunday morning, I painted, Ashley studied and the guys finished up the gate.

It was a great weekend!
