THE THRILL IS FAR FROM GONE...

Chance of a lifetime, twice within 6 months.  The legendary B.B. King in concert last evening, this time with my son in tow.  The consummate entertainer with an ever strong/clear voice, and those instantly recognizable guitar licks, all at 87 years old - I don't know that I could perform for a solid 1-1/2 hours at my age (even if I DID know how to play the guitar, OR could sing...and OK, fine!  I can't tap dance either, dammit, but would definitely throw that into my show, if I could).  B.B. and Lucille put on one hell of a show, STILL.  The thrill was definitely all ours, Mr. King.

Tanya, how awesome for you to see BB King with your son. It must have been a wonderful evening. I was fortunate to see him with my sister awhile back and we loved seeing and hearing him in person, truly a legend!

What a wonderful experience! How cool to think that he can still do it at that age, that he wants to, and that we want to see it - I envy you big time on this one!
My wish for us, is that whatever rocks our boat, we are still up for it at any age - you have inspired me yet again Tanya!!!
