Saturday, after visiting with Laura, Jason and the girlies
, (it was Jason's birthday and he went golfing), Gary and I left for Saratoga
is a peaceful small retirement community about 50 miles southeast of Rawlins
. Gary and I were going to stay with some very good friends of mine there and go to a Juice Newton concert.
Vance and Karen, a lovely couple and wonderful friends... They have a beautiful and peaceful home in the country and we were treated like royalty!
After the concert I asked Juice to autograph a CD jacket that I have had of her old songs from the 70s and early 80s. She did so gladly and I was thrilled to death!
The red lighting made it difficult to take pictures with my digital but this is what she looks like today, 30 years later! Her voice has matured and she sang to the crowd of about 200 people as if she was singing to 20,000 people. She gives these free concerts every year to show her love and appreciation of the people there. Her concert was mixed with old and new songs and her band is excellent!
After the concert, Gary surprised me with this autographed "All American Girl II" CD. It was the best birthday present ever! (P.S. It's not my birthday until tomorrow but I take pre-birthday gifts too!)
