It is simply Wicked!

 Merry Christmas Eve to all, this post is dedicated to "Wicked" the musical.  We splurged and bought tickets for the family to go last night and it was awesome!! First we shopped in the city and had dinner at Alex's favorite restaurant "The Empress of China" and we topped off the fun with Wicked.  It was even better than I had anticipated and for those who have seen it you know what I mean.  I loved the first half, the back story to the wicked witch's life and the costumes and songs.  The second half wasn't as dynamic but enjoyable and what's better than a broadway show??!!! If you haven't seen it I urge you to treat yourself.  Merry Christmas Eve friends!!!

1972 Ford 250- Past Due Tuesday

Here's Hip Chick's new ride a 1972 Ford 250.  Ain't it perttie???? In keeping with my love of old things I needed an old truck to haul my treasures and I just bought this baby on Sunday.  It's a creamy yellow with a Mack truck doggie as my mascot/hood ornament to show me the way to the nearest flea.  Inside it has one long seat with the old buckles, no radio (which will have to be rectified soon), a giant steering wheel and crank window handles, imagine that!!! I swear I was cracking up driving it around downtown Danville which is basically SUV and Lexus heaven.  I can't wait to get my tunes so I can crank Tom Petty's "American Girl" sport my cowboy hat and yell "yee-haw!!".  Funny thing is I don't even like horses........Now that I'm a good ole girl I will be learning more about these ole cars, I used to drive an old Plymouth Fury that I bought for $200.00 with a V8 back in the 80's and this so brings me back to that time.  This baby is LOUD too, let me tell you you'll be able to hear Hip Chick comin' from far away......hope I don't get kicked out of my neighborhood......
