The First Week Of Summer Hours

We know I love Summer hours.

Get 40 hours in by noon on Friday and escape for long weekend!

Simple right?

Well in theory yes it’s easy.

The first week is in the books.

Started off strong on the first Monday (6/5) and worked from 7am to 630pm!  A co-worker actually helped me make it to the end of they day!!

On Tuesday (6/6) I worked 7am to 430 pm and just like that I had made up my four hours!!!

But.  Oh my.  By mid day on Wednesday I was ready for a nap.  Then by end of day Thursday I was ready for the weekend!

It’s ok.  Should get easier as the weeks go on!

U2 Extend the Joshua Tree Tour!

I had read the rumors but was still surprised when U2 extended their Joshua Tree 2017 Tour!!!

This is the email I got!

Dear Kathleen,

In October the tour will head to Mexico City followed by concerts in Bogota, Buenos Aires, Santiago and Sao Paulo.

For Rolling Stone the show reveals “a live act simply without peer… It really felt like they were reapplying for the job of the best band in the world by showing how they earned the title in the first place.”

The band “not only unpack a masterpiece but provide moments to hold on to forever”. (Consequence of Sound)

Clear Stadium Purse / Bag

clear stadium bag

These days security is very important when attending events at large venues.

Four years ago the NFL announced their clear bag policy.  (I haven’t been to Gillette Stadium since 2009 so this is new for me)

You can no longer bring your handbag to NFL stadiums unless it’s a wristlet size.

Let’s be honest,  I don’t think my iPhone7 plus would fit in a wristlet!  LOL!

Luckily they are allowing CLEAR handbags as long as they are 12″ x 12″ x 6″ or smaller.

You might say:  Why bring a bag at all ?

Well, most of my clothes don’t have pockets that would hold my iPhone, camera, wallet, keys and ticket.

Amazon to the rescue!

I found this clear bag to use for concert day!

If I ever go to another stadium show I’ll have the bag and if I don’t I will use it for a travel cosmetic bag!

Comments: Bono tells the crowd that U2 hung out with Green Day and Metallica a night earlier and talked about creating a new music festival. Lou Reed is at the show, prompting Larry to sing a bit of Perfect Day before Bono leads the crowd in singing Happy Birthday for a friend named John. He dedicates Pride to the Shriver family. After ‘Streets’, Bono brings a fan from Poland on stage – a guy who flew 20 hours to be at this show.
