Trying to win a Beatles event that I designed in a National Trust contest.  If you can help me by voting for my idea, I'd be very grateful!

Summer begins today with the start of Memorial Day weekend.  Lots of stuff planned with family over all three days just wish it wasn't going to be so hot and sticky.  The forecast is for 90+ all three days and today is already miserably humid. 

Fun starts tomorrow when I meet up with my cousin Kelly for a girls day to celebrate our birthdays.  Should be nice and pampered after that.

Yes, it's true - the next Mad Day Out will be September 8th.  My plane tickets are purchased, my hotel in Liverpool is booked and my home-away-from-home in London has been reserved.  Now the serious planning of things to see and do can begin. 

I have Liverpool pretty mapped out.  With only two days (not nearly enough) I have to squeeze a lot into those days.

Finally going to see Paul McCartney in concert again

Had some really good luck today and I'm very excited.  I already had a vacation trip to London booked for next month.  I've had it booked for ages and then yesterday I learned that Paul McCartney was doing a charity concert in London (at the Royal Albert Hall) on the day I was due to fly home.

I last saw Paul in concert here in the Washington DC area in 1990.  That was 22 years ago!  In recent years every time he toured he either didn't come to DC or I was in England while he was here.  I was starting to feel he was deliberately avoiding me.

Anyway, today I managed to get tickets and change my flight (at no cost!) so that I can fly home one day later and finally get to a Paul concert.  I can't believe my luck.

And believe it or not, Ringo is coming to our area in June and his tickets go on sale in two days.  So this will be my year for ex-Beatle concerts.  Yippee!
