The Subjects…

Arrested!

by The Police last Friday night in the Toyota Center.  Bail was a little more than it was the last time they were in town, which was around 1984 or so.   That was when they released their 5th original LP (also on tape).  They released 5 originals and 5 other albums, including a live album and a box set collection.  Oddly enough, those “best of” always seem to have the same songs…

The show was great!  It was worth the money for sure.   I sat with Robb and a little ways up from Dean and Kelly, and we could see expression on the faces of the band, though some might argue that Stuart Copeland’s expression was the same as always- wide-eyed-wonder (he almost looked like he was surprised that he was actually a drummer in a rock  band playing for 15,000 people).

They kicked off the show with “Message in a Bottle” and went from there into “Synchronicity II” and on and on.  They ended up with some variations of a few, including “Can’t Stand Losing You” and “Roxanne” (of course).  Then an encore.  Then another.  They finally ended with “Every Breath You Take” about the time we were wondering what else there was left.  Actually the final song was something I forget, but by then my ears were bleeding and I couldn’t tell what it was.  Okay, no bleeding, but I really don’t recall the song.

Suffice to say, I’m glad that I was able to go.

It was so groovy to hang out with you on the 4th! Thanks for finding us by the swirly uhheaval of the earth. Also, thanks for freezing your face and arms on the Bainbridge Ferry for the works. Hope it was worth it. If not, the clam chowder compensated, I am sure. :)!

You’re right, M., I did get to see you and the whole family, and that was worth the cost of the plane ticket (which was more than the concert ticket, by the way!). Anyway, all kidding aside, I did see the family while I was home, and though I don’t tend to blog about my family (they are all computer savvy and can do that themselves if they choose), they are the main reason I keep coming back to Houston. Or was it the humidity? No, it’s the family. I’m pretty sure…

Diana, hanging out with you and your friends made for a fantastic fourth of July. I couldn’t have imagined it better than being out on a boat in the sound watching fireworks all over the horizon and the spectacular show in the harbor as we returned to Seattle. That was awesome. Thanks for sharing that with me. Great memories.
