John, Bonnie, and I went to see Dolly Parton at the Nokia Theater in Grand Prairie Sunday nite. What a show! She started right at 8:00 and she was on stage the whole time. Talented lady...she writes her own songs, plays several instruments, and at 60+ still struts around the stage in her what-look-to-be 5" heels.
I figured there would be a nice size crowd show up to see her, and it was. A few empty seats on the outer edges, but that was it. And a variety of ages too. In the row in front of us was a fellow who brought his mother, and I thought isn't that nice, bringing her to the show for Mother's Day. He was into it as much as mom, with his binoculars for a better look, and waving his arms in the air, occasionally pumping his fist for added emphasis.
Lots of fun, and this was the last show of this tour. They were originally supposed to be here March 15th, but she had some medical reason for postponing. If she comes to your area on down the way, see if you can make it. You won't be disappointed.
