This is our second year, participating in the Homecoming Parade. Katelynn marched with her High School Band up front. And we stayed with Sara and her Elementary School more in the middle of the parade. It was much warmer than last year. But we took the 95°F, than a down poor. After the Homecoming Parade, we went to the The Colony High School Football Stadium to watch the Pep Rally and the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen. 🤴👸🎉
Yesterday, Kevin and I saw Phil Collins’ show, STILL NOT DEAD YET. It was an amazing concert with hits from mainly the 1980s. Despite the fact, that Phil is physically not in the best shape anymore, and therefore has to sit on a chair throughout the show, he amazed with his vocals. Nic Collins, Phil’s 18-year-old son, plays the drums instead. This young man can fit easily in his dad’s footsteps, having Phil as a mentor. Hopefully we can see more of Phil, and definitely will see more music from Nic in the future.

Happy Birthday, America!
On Friday, we saw Paul McCartney live in the Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, which is also the home of the Texas Rangers Baseball Team. Kevin and I had a good time, Paul was very natural and down to Earth for what he has accomplished in the music business over the last six decades: genius and humbled. Here are some photos, I’ve captured with my cell phone:

Katelynn was participating in the Parade of Lights, tonight. Unfortunately, the photo I have captured of her didn’t turn out the way I wanted it. It was too dark. Oh well! It’s not the end of the world. But I still captured some photos of the event in our community. We had a beautiful night. Sara and the neighbor’s boys collected candy from the floats. And Katelynn had a good time, marching with her band mates in the parade. The weather was nice and warm enough for Sara to be in shorts. Yeah, in Texas it is a little bit harder to get into the mood of the holidays, when it is still 70ºF (21ºC) during the days. But this suppose to change on Monday. And we will have a fire burning in the fireplace, hot cocoa, and snuggly pyjamas, while watching Christmas movies in the evenings.
Kevin, the girls and I went to the American Heroes Festival, this evening. But we didn’t stay until the fireworks. The girls were bored and hungry already, before Sawyer Brown came on stage. And it was cold anyway. So we left early to have dinner at a local restaurant. It was nice to see Restless Hearts live, let the kids go on some rides and hang out with their friends. When the sun set, I captured some long exposures of the fair rides.
Kevin and I saw P!NK’s show of her “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” in the American Airline Center in Dallas, last night. She had an amazing second show with many songs of her new album “Beautiful Trauma” and her older albums as well. (Her first Dallas show was the night before). Still a little bit party-hungover, I post some photos I’ve captured with my cell phone.
