Girl's Weekend - 80's Style......

Okay, I know I'm going to get a lot of grief about this
but when I found out that Poison is coming to North Carolina August 7th ..... I HAD TO GET TICKETS!!!

I grew up listening to Poison and so has Sabrina. As far back as we can remember she would be sitting in her car seat listening (and singing with me) to all the big hair bands. We now have satellite radio and it is glued to the 80's station - and it's not by MY doing, but by hers. What's on her IPOD??? Greenday, Plain White T's, Underoath..... and POISON. What's on my IPOD? Bon Jovi, Barry Manilow, Motley Crue, Billy Idol, Heart, Rod Stewart, some Beatles and POISON. Ah, a rare commonality!

Sabrina's already planning out what she's going to wear. She asked me what I wore to my first Poison concert..... I'm not quite sure exactly, but I think that was during my leopard print, zippers and fishnets stage -- it was the 80's. Ahhhh - those were the days.

Above is a picture of Poison back then. And here is a picture of Poison NOW. Glad we got good seats!! (wink!)

Oh fab!!! Say "hi" to Bret for me!!!! oh ... swoon ... that hair ... swoon ... I liked some of Poison's stuff too but really I preferred the heavier stuff to the glam stuff (see my list of metal bands on my profile when you've got nothing much better to do!)

Last gigs I went to (which was a little while ago now) were Ritchie Blackmore, Rainbow, Skin, Def Leppard and Duff McKagan (where I met Axl!!!) but I've seen some big ol bands in my day!

Hope you all have a great time!!!

Have fun Cathie (lucky you) - the band members don't look like old rockers, they've obviously matured well - like good cheese!

Not familiar with "Poison" either, but I am familiar with the feeling of seeing a favorite group from your "earlier days"! You will have a fantastic time!

Cathie I loved the 80's too and I bet you'll have a blast at the concert (wow those guys don't look bad today hehe)! I just wanted to pop over and let you know that your traveling sketchbook page arrived in my mailbox today and it's soo gorgeous, wow! I'm working on your page tonight. Have fun at the concert! :p

OMG! I am just checking in with you because I received your first page and 2nd page from Lynette (both gorgeous by the way)...but had to stop here and say WOOO HOOO! and am holding up a lighter as I type for these (still) hot potatoes! Let me just tell you, 20 years ago this summer I met and partied with the boys from Guns and Roses and Skid Row! I am rocking with you girl!

Hi sweet Cathie, how is life? I'm not sure I know Poison, I'll go and check their music out right now!
say hello to the rest of your lovely family, and congratulation for your achievements in bootcamp! You are very brave!
