Journey of a body on this earth


From San Francisco to Chicago!

Well from SF to the group Chicago anyway, lol.  Last night we went to Wente Vineyard for a fantastic concert by Chicago under the stars.   WOW!  What a great time!!!  I wish I could’ve brought my camera in because I could’ve taken some cool shots, but when we called in advance, the vineyard said ‘no’ to any cameras.  Drat!

It started off with finding out our table was in the first row, smack dab in the center.  Hubby is one of the board of directors for a credit union, one of the main sponsors of these events, so hence the table location.  They serve an amazing buffet before the concert, so we enjoyed that with some Wente wine of course!  Riva Ranch is my favorite chardonnay.  Quite nice if you haven’t tried it.  It’s sold all over the country, so it should be in a store near you!

Before the concert started, we had special passes to go meet the band.  That was so fun!  When it was our turn out of maybe 12 people, we walked up there and I must’ve been grinning like a Cheshire cat because Robert Lamm said something like “wow, great smile!”  lol.  Yeah, that was one of the highlights of the night.  haha

The concert was FANTASTIC!!  They are so much better live than they are on their albums.  They poured their hearts out on the stage (in between doses of geritol, ha) and I danced around on my knee!  I was really on my feet, but you know what I mean.  I haven’t been able to dance in several years so that felt awesome to be able to get up and shake my bootay!

Ahh, life is good!    Sorry for the blurry pic but the iphone did okay considering it was dark and dealing with all those lights.
