Day 1705: Victory Tour

Want music?

Click here for Michael McDonald
then click back on this blog tab or here to listen as you browse, or not?

Saturday evening as I emerged from my flu fog ...
I came into my work space to finish blog #1704 here
and to do "Dottie", the cover art, also here.
Since adding blog music I put it on to test the link 
& usually just let in run while I work.
It morphed artists & was on Michael Jackson here ...
when I thought back to 1984 when WW's Dad, Thor, drove us
& the 11 year old WW & Daughter #2 to Dodger Stadium.
I have a picture of WW & D2 in braces & smiling all the way,
but they are both stronger than me & would kill me if I used it.
I wonder if they remember our VW bus pulling up 
to the stadium in between lines of shiny limousines?

We were there to see
MICHAEL JACKSON & the Victory Tour.

Backstory: the tickets were offered through a lottery system.
$56 mail order each, mailed with the newspaper coupon, 
and then wait to be selected. No guarantee.
For once in my life I jumped on it! 
We bought, mailed & waited.
We were selected ... 4 tickets, 3rd row center!

So close, we knew we were really lucky.
We could see Diana Ross off stage & other celebrities.

So tonight, all of a sudden listening to MJ song after song, 
I was transported back to that magical night.
Isn't it funny what music can do?

Sunday, first day up after the flu bug battle ...

I did make it to the 2nd day of the 2 day class & I have
66 photos ready to process for Tuesday's Day#1706 blog.
Hope you'll stop by then?
Hey, how was your weekend?

A smile for Monday ...
