Don't You Worry...

I will definitely be seeing this (hopefully soon after its release date):
ps - I know you only get brief glimpses, but do you recognize the father?

I can't watch it opening night because I'll be watching these guys live!!!
(so very, very excited for that, by the way!)

You can read a little about the family and the story here.

I Want to go to There

Sometimes I hear music and want to go to where the music is.

This soundtrack has a lot of pieces I hear that I feel that way about.

Here's an example:

The Final Five - drumroll please...

First of all, thank you!!! - to all of you who helped me narrow it down. I really appreciate you taking the time to do that. Some of the picks kind of surprised me, though I must say that what ended up in first place was not much of a surprise.

I think everyone had at least one of their picks represented in the final five. I think...

Also, every picture had at least one vote, so that was kind of gratifying.

I guess there is no "second of all."

So here, in a very definite particular order, are the 5 winners:

coming in first with 19% of the votes

in second place with 14%

for third, with 13%

with 11% putting this fourth

and coming in fifth, with 8%

Now, with those being the winners, would any of you decide to put one of these in place of one of those? If so, which one would you replace with which?






Thanks again!

My Favorite Photo ... a little help, please!

I'm entering a photo contest and I can submit up to 5 (five) photos. I'd like a little help narrowing it down. Please leave a comment with your favorites. I'm numbering them all to make it easier.

Tell your friends!

In no particular order...

I Was Right There...

... standing next to him
... I shook his hand
... I talked to him for a minute
(okay, I gushed to him for a minute)
... he was so nice
... he signed my playbill
... I walked away
... I had my camera in my purse
~ a picture is so much better than an autograph! ~

I'm kicking myself right now.
