Steely Dan concert

I was lucky enough to get a ticket for the Steely Dan concert in September, my best friend bought 2 tickets for Rohan her hubby to go to the concert, you know the one i made the quilt for?? Well Karen didn't want to go after hearing their music she decided she didn't like them - so here comes Julie - i will go, and yes it was a great night, we went to Gopals the hari Krishna restaurant in Melbourne YUM YUM. then did the walk to the tennis centre along the yarra. i had to sit and have a rest half way, and was sitting on a bench seat looking at the water and got the fright of my life, this silly bicycle rider came passed me and frightened the
out of me, i felt the wind of the speeding rider pass my face, i screamed of course and everyone looked. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
the concert was fantastic, it was great to listen to their songs and take me back in time. the only song they didn't sing was Rikki don't lose that number. I wanted to reflect what was happening at that time in my life. Isn't it funny you - well i can- listen to a song and remember what and where you were at that time it was a hit.

so that is my post for today, have a great day. Julie

I have been tagged by Chelle, Thank you for my award. It's nice to win things.

Ok, where was I last post.

We, hubby son and me headed off to Port Vincent South Australia for a few rushed days. 12 hour car trip, wow is it a long way or what. I was lucky enough to meet another of my cyber mates on the way over, Chelle you are a gem, and your family ROCK. Great to have met you. the little Nissan Pulsar ran like a dream, the only thing happened was the wiper blade blew off in extremely heavy rain, and we had to stop to fix that.. the trip through Adelaide town was a bit difficult, there had been a truck accident and we were diverted from the main road, so we got lost of course, only ever having been there once before, we spent half hour, driving around and around, going in a ll diresctions, until i mentioned to hubby, "why don't we ask someone" Dah. well he did, we were on the right road as it turned out, to get out of the city. "T'was hubbies turn to drive" dumb bumb..................................................
when we finally got to our destination, we had a lovely time partying with his family for the weekend, a few of the boys went midnight fishing off the pier., this little black duck slept the night away. Brock cut his foot open on razor fish, he took his shoes off, in the water after being warned to leave them on. Men have no brains. We went for a great walk along the beach on the Sunday, I love the beach. Then traveled the long trip home Monday.

Kaye - Nikki - me - Emily - Julene
gee, am i the worst blogger or what, august was my last reply. i have done so much in that time, i will have to look at my calender and catch you all up on the gos.

for a start, i went to a scrapbooking retreat for our forum purplescraps, in september, what a hoot, we had so much fun, it was awesome. especially to finally get to meet my cyber friends face to face. here are the girls, i will have to find another one because Melinda is not in it. I haven't labeled all my pix yet they still have numbers, sorry Mel. I learned loads of new techniques, like painting chipboard, using Bling. BLING BLING HELLO

I will load on some of my layouts i did while in Bendigo, not tonight though.

I picked up 3 of the girls at Tullamarine, we traveled in the little red DEVIL - my car - well we squeezed in. funny as, you had to be there. LOL we drove up to Bendigo, and stopped for lunch at St.Arnaud at a lovely bakery for lunch YUM. Then we headed off again, to be pulled over by this silly old man in the middle of the road lost and looking for directions, Me the country chick pulled over and gave him the directions, I hope he found where he was going because I was only guessing.????? The girls thought i was crazy, stopping for a stranger, but i would do it again.
We stayed with the lovely Kaye, and talked all night like young school girls. We all felt like we had known each other forever, it was a fantastic weekend.
it's getting late and we are having a thunder storm, so i will sign off now and the next chapter will be soon i promise.
