Friday Night, February 9 – at American Music Theatre

From the Internet: Riverdance is a theatrical show consisting mainly of traditional Irish music and dance. Since February 1995 the show has visited over 450 venues worldwide and has been seen by over 25 million people, making it one of the most successful dance productions in the world.

This was Chris’ choice for her 2017 birthday gift. It was also nice that it helped expand my birthday celebration this year.

We purchased the tickets in late October or early November last year (about the time of her birthday) and had trouble finding good seats. I was pleased to find seats – about a dozen rows from the stage.

Photos cannot be taken during the show, but I found a lot on their website.

I cannot imagine being able to make my feet move this gracefully and quickly.

I was amazed at everyone’s talent.

One of my favorite scenes was when the drummer came out from behind his enclosed area. He created much of the instrumental background and was an unsung hero of the entire performance.

Another favorite scene was when there was a bit of competition between Irish dancing and tap dancing from the “hood.” By the audience response – it was also a favorite part for everyone else. 🙂

The Irish singing – oh, my!


I am so glad that Chris chose this performance for her birthday – or we might not have known about it.

I kept saying to myself, “This is amazing.”

Being Pampered

Friday, February 9

I make it a habit to plan a manicure/pedicure for my birthday – and schedule it to work for our daughter Deb. (Since she lives an hour away, we don’t see each other as often as I see the other Pennsylvania daughters-in-love and granddaughters.)

After we chose a date, I invited the other ladies. This year it suited Chris.

What fun celebrating with these two.

Deb took a photo from her end.

The best part of winter pampering is getting our hands and feet placed in paraffin.

Deb always gets fancy nails.

Removing the paraffin from Deb’s hands.

Paraffin leaves hands and feet feeling soft and pampered.


After this, Chris left to clerk an afternoon auction, and Deb and I met Lydia at Noodles Restaurant in Elizabethtown. I will show those pictures tomorrow night.
