A Vacation

My grandsons and daughter are coming to visit me the end of the month. My husband James is also going to be off for the week with me so we have lots of fun planned.
But one of the best things we are going to do just involves my husband, myself and some wild women!
Now before you get any kinky ideas, we are going to see Roller Derby in Austin! Check out this site: http://www.txrd.com
I have been a huge Roller Derby fan since the 1960's when my parents, sister and I would watch them on TV on Saturday nights. Then A&E did a reality show about the Texas Roller Derby girls. Oh my! My favorite team is the Holy Rollers. With names like Miss Conduct & Punky Bruiser, who can go wrong?
My daughter is going to stay home that evening with my mom so we can go down the road to Austin to see them. It is like a dream come true! Ok, to some it might be a nightmare! But I CAN'T WAIT!

Was it the 60's? Oh wow, where has the time gone?!
I know you'll "all" have a blast:)
