Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Weekend in Vegas

The Eagles concert on March 23 deserves it own post!  On Saturday morning we left the trailer at the camp in Davis Park and headed to Las Vegas for the Eagles Concert.  It was so fantastic! 
We decided to stay right at the MGM Grand, where the concert was held.  That was quite an elegant decision on our part, and a little selfish, as we thought it would allow us to partake and have no concerns about driving, taxis or other efforts to get home after.
The room was very modern, and very comfortable.  EXCEPT the smoke detector went off at 3:00 a.m.and we had to call maintenance.  But they were efficient, changed the batteries and back to sleep we went.
We attended the conference with Phil Stagg and Therza, as well as Tammy and Dean form Okotoks.  Although we only live a town away from Phil and Therza, life keeps getting in the way and we haven’t visited in over a year.  So we decided to meet for an early dinner, meet Tammy and Dean, and catch up.  We chose the Rainforest Cafe in the MGM, and the food was sooooo good.
The Eagles Concert was all you could hope for.  I don’t know why the newer performers can’t figure this out.  The band came on stage, no warm up groups, no introductions, stood at the microphones and started singing.  From the Seven Bridges Road to open with, to Desperado as the last song, 2.5 hours of strong performance.  They did not miss one old song we wanted to hear, and did not add anything new that the audience didn’t know or want to hear.  It was worth every penny to see them in such an amazing venue!
Thanks to Phil and Therza, I stole photos off their Facebook pages…
