ALL SHE WANTS TO DO IS DANCE...

"She wants to party.  She wants to get down.  And all she wants to do is - all she wants to do is dance..."

Don Henley, the founding member of The Eagles, performed at The Joint/Hard Rock Hotel on Friday night, and we were lucky enough to be in the audience.  Let me tell how he was, other than FABULOUS!  We were treated to his solo hits..."Dirty Laundry”, “The Boys of Summer”, “All She Wants to Do Is Dance”, “The Heart of the Matter”, “The Last Worthless Evening”, “Sunset Grill”, “New York Minute” and “The End of the Innocence”, among them, along with some new stuff.   AND, a few of The Eagles' biggest - "Hotel California" and "Desperado" - LIVE!  Told you it was fabulous - yeah, Henley ROCKED the sold out house!
I also got to meet up with another Internet friend this week, who I had the pleasure of meeting here about three years ago, when she came through town.  Suxie Hamill (Yankee Lane Primitives) , and her delightful Mom, came for a few days of gambling and Vegas lights (Suxie is actually Susie, but in a bit of a rebellious moment a few years ago, over people being too lazy to actually write out "Christmas", took to using X in her own name).

I spent a half-day (plus an evening trip to old downtown, before depositing them at a show) with them, chatting, catching up, and enjoying the company...they went to a big concert the same evening we did, before flying out, and I am anxious to hear how it was.  Her Mom has a photo on her camera, since mine was left on the kitchen table.  Great seeing you again, Suxie - here's hoping you left with loads of cash in your pockets, as well as that song in your heart!
