An Amazing visit with Cher!

I just want to share an incredible experience with you!
Handsome Hubby gave me tickets to see Cher for Christmas....the day finally came...May 12th!  off to Las Vegas we flew....we checked into the Monte Carlo....an older casino...Cher would be performing in the theatre tonight....ooooooh...excitement building!  we took an Uber to 'Downtown Vegas'...the older part....what a delight!  a tonic water in a biker bar...some de-puffer applied to 'one eye'...i could look 'that good' in 3 months for a mere $300...pishaw...not happening!...wandered around and watched the street entertainment...sometimes seeing more than i wanted to...like the homeless guy in a g-string...ew....put that thing away...no one wants to see that!
back to the Monte Carlo to prepare for the big night.....ooooooh...excitement is now building even more!
we walked through the smokey casino...oh....i forgot to tell you the advice that the Uber driver gave us.."If you want to make money....Go to work!"  ha ha....i love that...we did not gamble at all while in Vegas....yay!
anyway....we walked through the smokey casino to the theatre...people were dressed to the nines i can tell you....sparkles everywhere....me?  patched jeans, my cowboy boots and a baggy tunic....adorable as always...tee hee....
we spoke to other people there that were ready to jump out of their skins with excitement....me too!!!!  the show starts at 8:00...well...Cher is THE diva soooo...the show started at 8:30!
OMG!  there she was....big as life....everything i ever expected and more!  opening song and then she visited with us...telling us a bit of a life experience of hers.....then she proudly announced..."I am 71 years old....I have one question for you.....What is YOUR Grandma doing tonight?!"  Spectacular!  
you must know how this story ends....I LOVE CHER!!!!!  her voice is better than ever, she is authentic and powerful...she is talented and true....i loved every single minute....i was wiggly in my seat....i quietly sang every song with her...it was unbelievable!
i dragged my happy happy self out of the theatre and did not speak for as long as possible...not wanting to let go of what i had just felt....total satisfaction!!!
life is grand....go out and have an adventure!!!
thank you Handsome Hubby for making this possible!  you know me.....
