It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

Gotcha, we just haven't had this happen yet...of course since I just said that, well you know....

Red Rocks is in Colorado.

Sorry, my bad for putting we were going to Red Rocks (I fixed). They had just played their for their movie and we wanted to see them out west right before the movie came out in November 1988.

Again, why would you have to go all the way across the country to see them when they have played in your area quite a number of times?  If you are such a big fan, why would seeing them be limited to such a very tiny specific window?  

Again, we wanted to go to as we were teens and loved them beyond anything at that time lol. My gf's family lived there and it was in the summer so it was the perfect opportunity. She eventually moved there and saw them and I eventually went with my hubby to MSG. It all worked out and I am glad I got that opportunity to do so.
