Can anyone guess what this is?  Look closely and you can see the steps.  Any ideas?  I'll tell you.  It's my birthday present from James and our anniversary gift to ourselves!  I took this picture waiting for the encore at the TOM PETTY and the HEARTBREAKERS concert!  Now, I have been to a lot of shows.  A. Lot.  But, Tom has been on my "must see" list for a while.  When we heard he was coming to town, James and I were hoping the stars would align and we would be able to afford such an event.  Good tickets are pricey and good tickets for good shows are essential.  So, with a little help from a timely tax refund, we had great seats and enjoyed ourselves immensely.  Tom was so personable - he let me sing to him!  I, plus the rest of the sold out crowd, sang Learning to Fly (a background song on this blog for years now) and he harmonized and did back ups.  Amazing.  There's just something about a live show and singing anonymously in a crowded house that is empowering.

Next on our concert list is Eric Clapton (coming this summer) and Lynard Skynard (coming in a few weeks).  Stay tuned!
