    Please don't say that. I suppose it's possible, but let's hope not.

    No sweat. I just checked it out and I can get that sucker in three-four weeks. Plenty of time.

    You can actually get it in 24 hours if you pay a fee - I know that because one time, before a trip to Colombia, South America, I lost mine and had to scramble to get one the day before!

    I was being light-hearted, FP, and having a little chuckle to myself over how we (I) always justify it as "this could be the last time" and yet the band just keeps on going and going. Most of us couldn't count the "last times" we've seen the Eagles on one hand! Nancy and Kay thought the same about six years ago, I believe. It was meant to be a remotely amusing paragraph, but I'm sorry if that comment upset you. I'm pretty sure it's NOT going to be Glenn's last show!


    you better put it all behind you, baby, 'cause life goes on
    you keep carrying that anger, it'll eat you up inside--

    Excellent! Glad you are able to get it in good time for the show.

    Fair enough; this has thrown me for a loop. I have Air Canada's site open as we speak. Even if I could go to Toronto I would still have to pay for accommodation & then somehow have to get to Fallsview.

    I already have tickets to see Stevie in Cincinnati August 20. Impossible to bail out on that as I have two friends going as well. Thus, I will be basically getting back to Memphis on the 21st, and getting my butt onto a plane on the 22nd to Niagara Falls. Should be interesting! Thank goodness school doesn't start 'til the 29th!

    As soon as I saw that I knew you'd be there Soda! It's gonna be amazing, I just know it. You are going to be a busy girl that week! Your two favorite performers w/in days... that's just cool!

    Yeah, although I'm still trying to figure out if I can wiggle out of the Cincy show (I'm seeing her in Red Rocks, after all). The problem is that I was the one who was going to drive (my friend doesn't like to drive in the dark) and also that my other friend doesn't want to sit alone. I don't want to let them down.

    OMG - Today has been so crazy, I never even saw this until I got the telephone call from Nancy. This is a 'no brainer' for me - just booked my flights.

    I LOVE FALLSVIEW CASINO!!!
