Big Momma and Vince Gill
Sunday, November 06, 2011
What a great day yesterday was. My fellow Sparker, MsEleni, sent me part of her beautiful orchid, "Big Momma," and it arrived mid-afternoon. I followed her instructions for soil preparation and watering, and "Big Momma 2" now lives in Wisconsin. Those of you who know MsEleni, know that she has the greenest of thumbs. This women has flowers that are unbelievably beautiful and everything she grows blooms profusely. When I opened the box that contained the cuttings from "Big Momma", one of them already had 2 blossoms on it. I showed them to my husband and told him that only Eleni could send an orchid from Florida to Wisconsin and have it blooming when it arrived!!!!! She is something else!!!!!
After planting "Big Momma 2", we went to a Vince Gill concert. My husband surprised me with front-row seats. It was like having him in our living room!!!!! We had such a great time. Vince talked and sang and played guitar (like no one I have ever seen) for over 2 hours to a sold-out audience who were all on their feet for the last half hour. I knew going in that he had a great voice and was a top-notch guitar player, but I had no idea that he was so funny. A good time was had by all. If he comes to your area, I would highly recommend seeing his show.
