Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

STEVIE WONDER

Date: 1st October 2008

STEVIE WONDER

Must be brief but will fill in more when I'm back from Barcelona.

Stevie spent more than an hour playing, what to me were nondescript numbers, before he got to the ones which made him famous and it wasn't until the end that we were treated to Superstition and the like.  I was rather disappointed and as for the behaviour of people at concerts - well!  Can they really not go for a couple of hours without drinks and chips and pizzas - there was a constant to-ing and fro-ing which I found very disconcerting.

I must however praise to the heights an incredibly good looking young man in Car Park 2 (call sign Oscar 67)  who helped my disabled friend and myself well beyond the call of duty.  He reminded me of that song 'San Jose' and the mention of the out of work actors, pumping gas and parking cars.  Maybe he was!  Despite booking two weeks ago, our so-called 'disabled car parking spot' was far too far for my friend to even attempt to walk to the Arena.  He arranged for us to leave Park 2 and repark in Park 1 and went to a great deal of trouble.  Even then the walk was far too long for my friend but on the way home, we had the services of a delightful young lady - Kesia (I hope I've got her name correct) who brought a wheelchair and 'drove' it all the way back to the car.

I didn't like O2 at all and will expand further next week.  My dear Son has talked about getting tickets for Tina Turner but I think I'll turn the lights down, get a good bottle of wine and listen to the CD in the comfort of my home.

Drive safely and take care.  Jan
