Default Chattanooga-Atlanta-Feb.2008-Trip Report

hi everyone

Though I've already mentioned a little here and there about the performances I was able to go to (Chattanooga and Atlanta) I also have a few pics to share now. My cousin Chris and I really enjoyed the Atlanta show! For those of you who were there...I've included a photo of us, perhaps you may have spotted us .

I had the opportunity to talk to Gordon briefly after the Atlanta show and told him that it was my favorite so far -though I couldn't quite put my finger on why that was so. Of course, I feel that way during and after every performance. But then my cousin stated the obvious...it was because she was there too

The photos I took at the Atlanta show didn't come out good at all (furious with my camera now ).

Well I had a nice extended vacation and spent every moment I could with my cousin and her family. The kids (aged 10 and 12) loved learning and listening to Gordon's music and we spent a good 2 hours on youtube (and singing and dancing along too).

Very good cousin Pam, you had a great time the pics are better than the one I took last May 11th, here in Moncton. Gord has got a great smile and seems to be happy. If he's happy, then Im happy. Thanks for sharing podunklander...

Sounds like you had a great trip, podunklander. You got to see Gord and fit in some local things as well, which is nice. Thanks for posting.

Podunklander, sounds like you had a great time!
It's always nice to spend time with family and friends and share great music.
Glad you had fun and thanks for sharing the pictures...Gordon looks great.

Did you happen to see the copper colored moon during the eclipse?
So beautiful and it was a nice, clear and very cold night here for viewing it.
Brrrr.....

Thanks all and I'm happy to be able to share my stories...sorry my post was so long, but it was a long trip! I didn't included things like our 3 trips to Waffle House (well, now you know).

I did watch the eclipse for a little while Nightingale, but didn't see the color you did. It was a little cloudy out too.
