baby did a bad bad thing

Okay! Mission accomplished. At one minute after ten o'clock... these were the best seats I could get for Veto and I, Buddy Budderson and The Fan. Plus two extra tickets in case somebody we know couldn't get tickets. I'm no scalper, I'll sell them at face value to somebody I want to sit beside. I'm just really nice that way.

Whilst on the Ticketmaster website, guess what else was for sale?

The Eagles? Seriously. The Eagles. Okay, pretty good seats, right? I think that was real smart of me. Now I just have to convince Veto how smart it was and that he has to fly to Toronto to use the tickets! 

AMENDED: Well, we treated our friends Claire (who just lost her dear husband John) and Yoko (who is visiting from Japan) and of course The Fan and off we went to see Elton!  He was amazing.  The Eagles did not work out well for us.  We were unable to attend but Veto sent the tickets via UPS on a guaranteed overnight delivery to a colleague in Toronto as a treat, but they didn't arrive in time!  Boooo.  Those amazing seats went empty, what a shame.

Buddy Budderson picked our first dance song. When we heard it, we knew it was the perfect song for us:

I wanna make you smile whenever youre sad

Carry you around when your arthritis is bad

All I wanna do is grow old with you

Ill get your medicine when your tummy aches

Build you a fire if the furnace breaks

Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you, I'll kiss you

Give you my coat when you are cold

I'll need you, I'll feed you

Even let you hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink

Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink

I could be the man who grows old with you

I wanna grow old with you

Saucy my sweet little dove,

Love Bunny has a model train room? Does he want a girlfriend???

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, my chickee, but yes, Love Bunny has a girlfriend - ME - for the past 47 years!. *Sigh*, my darling, he's unavailable :-) But he definitely is a cutie and sweetie...........

Purr-fect wedding song, except for the remote control. Takes more than love to pry that baby from hubby's hands.

If I haven't said this morning, THANK you for sharing your wedding photos. They are so lovely.

Love that Adam Sandler song...makes me cry everytime I watch The Wedding Singer. My husband thinks I'm nuts...

LOVE the song, Saucy!! It's a true testament to real life, rather than just the lovey dovey stuff! I am SO enjoying your wedding day photos, it looks like it was the best day ever (well, after my wedding day, of course)

I love the song he picked out for your first dance. Our song is Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers. We dance to it no matter where we are. One time we were in the grocery store and the song played over their sound system. We danced in the aisle and everyone clapped.

There will be a lineup for those extra tickets to see Elton John! You'll have your pick of friends! I was just devising a scheme where I'd get the tickets, we'd drop K and N off at Gram's for the night and head out to see Elton. Sounds dream-like and I'm sure it is! Glad to hear that the Fan & Buddy are going too!

I wish I could go with you to see Elton. He still makes me weak in the knees-his songs are the ones that really bring back the memories and bring on the tears.

you picked a winner when you picked Veto - any man smart enough to want that as their first song is a man worth knowing! ... how I wish I had been a guest at that wedding. :)

cheers! & congrats on the tickets.

Sir Elton sold out in six minutes! We were very lucky to get tickets.
