Woke up yesterday to an icy glaze covering the car and driveway. By 10:00 it was melted. Sunny day today. Seven inches of snow forecast for tomorrow. Enough already!
This is the time of year when I am sick of winter and look forward to summer. To make the anticipation of warmer weather grow this is also the time when I look to secure tickets for our annual day in New York.
This day involves catching a morning train to NYC. Usually we leave from Middletown but this year we will be leaving from Lancaster. The reason for the change is that boarding the train at the Lancaster Station will be easier for Kathy. All train doors will open and the train will be even with the platform. In Middletown we need to cross tracks and step up into the train. This can be a bit tricky with Kathy’s leg problems.
We get to NYC around 11:00 which gives us time for a light lunch before checking into the Marriott Marquis and then heading to a matinee show. There really was no question in my mind as to what show I wanted to see. The problem was getting tickets. I had to wait until the block of tickets for the date we are going opened up. I admit I checked ticketmaster every day for several months until I saw tickets were released for our date. I snatched up two aisle seats and am extremely happy with what I got. Oh, what show will we be seeing?
I am a big Cher fan.
After the show we will head off to dinner somewhere. Not sure where just yet. When I decide I will make reservations.
After dinner it will be off to an evening performance. I got advance notice for when tickets for this show would go on sale. I was able to get aisle seats with little difficulty.
Here is the second show we will be seeing.
I enjoyed the movie and am looking forward to see what they do with it on stage. A friend of mine saw it in previews and said it is really good.
As if these shows weren’t enough to have something to look forward to there is one more show we will be seeing. This is actually a concert happening at the Giant center in Hershey in June. Tickets for this concert were actually an Valentine’s present for Kathy. She is just in love with this guy.
This will be the third time we will have seen Josh Groban in concert. All times were at the Giant Center.
So, even though winter isn’t over having these shows and concert to look forward to will help me get through whatever Mother Nature throws at us for the rest of this winter season.
