Tweaked my Queenie post (below) and found the summer concert pic …

His personality was a lot like hers, too  – serious, loyal … a good working dog.

We could have saved time, money and most likely parked our aging arses on fairly cushy seats if the YES concert had been held, say, in the FUCKIN’ PALLADIUM! Continue reading Could it happen here?
