Dream Come True

Some of you might find me a little strange...or a LOT strange, but that's just me. While growing up, my mother was a fan of the 50's & 60's music. I grew up loving Elvis, Paul Anka, Everly Brothers, Beach Boys...and yes, even Engelbert Humperdinck. I played Barbies with my younger sister and when our Barbie and Ken would fall in love, we'd listen to the love songs from these artists. I know nearly every one of Engelbert Humperdinck's songs--word by word. So when my friend, Judy Baker, told me Engelbert was going to be in Wendover on Sept. 2nd, I really wanted to go. Thankfully, a rebate check come in the mail earlier this week that made this trip possible. are some fun pics from my time in Wendover. The concert hall wouldn't let me take my camera into the concert, so instead, I took pics of the program I bought.

This is where we stayed - which was an easy walk to the concert hall.

We were on the fourth floor, and this pic was taken from our window.

EH with famous people throughout the years.

Ahhh...the memories. I'll always cherish them. EH sang my three favorite songs: "After The Loving", "Spanish Eyes", and "The Last Waltz". I did get teary-eyed but only because I was so happy...and then at the end I got teary-eyed again because the concert was over. But it was a WONDERFUL time!

I'm so jealous! When I was younger I was going to marry Engelbert and Tom Jones! Well . . . after I married Dave Starsky and Ken Hutchinson. Ahhh, the memories:-)

Oh yes!! I loved Starsky & Hutch, too. I think I wanted to marry Eric Estrada on C.H.I.P.S. more. hahahaha
