Chris De Burgh Concert

I went to a concert this past week. It was the first really big event that I've gone where I didn't wear a mask; we'll see how that works out. 

My friend and I went out to dinner before the concert. We had a nice meal with a couple glasses of wine. Our reservations had us at the restaurant during Happy Hour so many drinks were only $6, as well on Wednesday's all of the burgers were only $14. 

We thought we had plenty of time, so we leisurely headed over to the nearby venue only to realize we were at the wrong concert location. So began the race across town; luckily, we had prepaid for parking. We were a bit late; the concert had already started but we weren't the only ones that were late, and I think we only missed the opening song. 

I'd seen Chris de Burgh in concert before many years ago; his stage show has gotten more techno than I recall. He also either had a cold or is having some difficulty reaching the high notes of some of his songs but at 74 years old he still is a good singer and storyteller. 

It was a good evening despite the road race to get to the concert. Next time I'll check to make sure I have the right venue.

Teddy is Six!

We're a day early celebrating Teddy's sixth birthday but what else is there to do on a cold wet freezing rain kind of day. 

I had already made some pumpkin pupcakes earlier in the week and had taken some out of the freezer this morning to thaw for tomorrow. But since I didn't get my errands done today, I decided we'd celebrate today.  I quickly made potato buttercream icing for the pupcakes and we had our little pawty.

Teddy is not too thrilled about wearing a party hat or posing for pictures but he's a sport about it all. He waits until I'm done taking pictures to get excited about getting a pupcake and presents.

In addition to the pupcake, Teddy got a new bumper and some treats. He got more treats than I planned to buy as how could I resist buying treats called Teddy Treats. 

The boys also got new collars but really, they're for Easter. I don't know why I bother; you can never really see the collar with long Sheltie fur.

So now Teddy has had more birthdays with me than with anyone else. I hope he likes it here with me. You always wonder what they think about. 

Happy Barkday Teddy!
