To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

SYMPHONY IN THE PARK...I LUV FORT WORTH
It was DATE NIGHT!
Mr. Wonderful surprised me with
VIP tickets to the
Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in the Park
The Beatles Classical Mystery Tour!
I always tell him we need to "capture the moment......"
I normally capture only part of us in these selfies....
requires several "do-overs!"
We were a bit worried about the weather
due to all the rain and flooding we
have experienced this past week....
but it turned out to be absolutely perfect!
So across the Trinity we went
The Fort Worth Botanical Gardens!
Thank goodness I looked on Facebook
to see they were saying
"it's a bit soggy out here....
wear shoes you don't mind getting muddy!"
I found my Maine rain boots
and thank goodness I did.....
it was pretty muddy indeed in some spots...
they did a great job spreading hay
You should have heard all the comments from
the ladies who were trying to walk in all this mud
with good shoes, even heels, when they
realized I had the best idea of the evening!
It was a great start having cocktails,
listening to fantastic music
The sun was just beginning to set in these
Everyone was enjoying their cocktails
elegant picnics before the concert began!
The darling said I did great with our little picnic!
The picnics were lavish at some tables...
champagne, cakes, pies, fresh seafood,
linen tablecloths....it was Texas style y'all!
We were having an absolute ball!!!
I tried to capture the bounty of food
this table was enjoying!
Yum...champagne and strawberries........
I loved this guy's shirt.....
The sweet couple at our table offered to snap a pic of us!
Then it began.....
the Symphony was AMAZING!!!!!
The guys in this band
were spot on with their portfolio of
classic Beatle tunes.....
I asked the guy at our table
how old he was when he first saw the Beatles?
"I never saw the Beatles!"
Me with a stunned look: "What?????"
He stated he was only five years old when the Beatles appeared in America...
