Six Word Saturday: Yippee!..George Strait and Reba Concert!



I got an early Valentine gift today...my honey bought us tickets to see George Strait and Reba! The concert is on Feb. 19th here in Wichita at our new Intrust Arena. I am excited, and it is a good pick-me-up today for me since I have been sick for a week now. I am not a concert goer and I had no idea it would cost him $200.00...but as I said, it will be our Valentine to each other. ((smile))

I have always liked Reba and I recently read her book. I do have a few of Reba's CD's, and for Christmas my youngest daughter gave be a collection of George Strait CD's called "Strait Out of the Box", and today my hubby and I have been listening to them. Before my husband was a Christian all he listened to was Country, so he knows a lot of these songs. There was a book in the set of CD's and it tells of how George got started, and then tells about the first 15 years of his career. Since that book was written he has another 15 years under his belt. He is a well respected artist and in the book it said he is like the nice guys from days gone by, like Roy Rogers or the Lone Ranger, or Gene Autry...riding in to save the day. He's the... "Good Cowboy in the White Hat".

I think we will enjoy the concert and it will be an experience I can blog about. Everything is "blog material" when you blog! Just a way to share your life.

So I am doing Six Word Saturday today and once again... my 6 words are: Yippee! George Strait and Reba Concert!

Wow, what a nice Valentine's gift! I love both artists--so talented. I could listen to them all day. I have the cd collection Straight Out of the Box myself! Was Reba's book good? I love non-fiction books.

I'm nearly finished with Lynnette's book, and I've been touched so much by it. It makes me realize how blessed I am, and how strong we can be when we have to be.

Your excitement about the concert reminds me of a time when my hubby and I got tickets to see Alan Jackson. We are not concert goers either, but I've been a Jackson fan for many years. My daughter's girlfriend was able to get us second row seats!!! It was one of my greatest experiences of all time! I hope you enjoy George and Reba just as much! Blessings, Kathy

Sorry that you haven't been feeling well, hope that will soon pass.

I had to laugh at this comment:
George Strait gets "hotter" with age.. HA HA HA HA!!!!

I'm glad you get to go. I might go to see Sylvester Stallone - oh wait, he doesn't sing! Hmmmmpffff! Was that funny? :) I DID JUST (tonight) watch Rocky with Kyle and the little boys. I'm serious when I say, I get warm fuzzies from it. And the music... ahhhh! I love the Rocky music. Am I pathetic? Of course you know I wouldn't pay $100 to go and get my picture taken with him as you teasingly suggested a couple of years ago.

Okay, done being silly. Taking a break from my writing for a few minutes.

Love you much momma. Hope you get to feeling better very soon.
