We've Got The Blues!

Last night, David and Jill Caswell invited Saunders and I to go out to dinner and to a show at The Fox.  We had such a great time with them!  We went to Houston's for a delicious dinner of steak and potatoes, and then we headed to the theater for a blues show.  

Our seats were amazing - we were sitting down in the pit, just five rows from the stage.  We saw Buddy Guy and BB King perform, and we really enjoyed it.  I didn't know a lot about Buddy Guy - and I knew who BB King was, of course, but I don't listen to the blues on a regular basis.  I was pleasantly surprised to hear several songs I recognized, and even the music I didn't know was really, really good.  We really liked Buddy Guy's music a lot.  He is a fabulous guitar player.

BB King's horn section was fabulous!  Poor old BB himself is getting on up in years - he's 84 - so he did a lot of sitting and sharing stories and not too much playing.  It was still great to see a legend in concert, though.

We had such a fun time hanging out with Jill and David and having a big adult night out!
