Italian Woman are Tough !!

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite ravioli wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed.

Gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

When he reached the bottom of the stairs, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen, where if not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in Heaven, for there, spread out upon wax paper on the kitchen table were hundreds of his favorite ravioli.


Was it Heaven? Or was it one final act of his wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

He threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture.

His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the ravioli was already in his mouth.

With a trembling hand he reached up to the edge of the table, when suddenly he was smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife who said:

"Va fanculo"

"Questi sono per il funerale."

(Translation - "Fu_ _ off. These are for the funeral.")

Billy Currington and SUGARLAND

Friday night was a trip to Milwaukee to see Billy Currington and SUGARLAND.

I had a chance to pickup some fresh vegetables at a Wisconsin roadside stand. Great stuff and I got some Wisconsin Cheese but not for my head, no "Cheese Head" for me I'm a BEARS fan!!!

Ok so I get to the Bradley Center and meet my good friends, Don, Helen, and their daughter Julie. Now these guys are REAL SUGARLAND Fans!! Don and Helen are heading to Vegas shortly and I hope they win BIG BUCKS !! Julie has to keep working but she travels a lot, in fact she just got back from KC and had a chance to see Luke Bryan another good country singer.



I head to my seat and get settled in when my Neighbors for the Night arrived. Jerri and Tony from Madison.


Tony is a drummer but is taking a little time off and he and Jerri are going to Mexico next week. Jerri for a conference and both for R&R. How neat !! Here I am stuck going to concerts. I better start traveling, hum, maybe Seattle !!



Now here are a couple other dancing fans who were Rockin' to Billy Currington but were there for SUGARLAND !!



Now we get to Billy Currington. You might have read about the tornado in Alberta Canada a few weeks ago that killed 5 people. Well Billy was there but survived the mess. (Check his jeans I think they were there too and pulled from the damaged stage!!)

U2 with Snow Patrol at Soldier Field 9/12/2009

You could never go to a better concert or see anything like the "CLAW" !





On my trip to Soldier Field I met one of the fans, "TR", who goes to several music concerts each year. TR was kind enough to share a cab ride to the venue. Thanks TR, hope to see you at some other concerts.
Two couples, who where my neighbors for the night, were from Aurora and where great "Elevation" fans as well as U2 fans.
And an usher in the section I was in, saw that I was eating peanuts so he came by and said " "Hey mister your "nuts" are on the floor" ". What friendly people.

The fans were great and of course it was a sell out. Check it out.

Snow Patrol opened and got the fans "Rockin".
