Jack's first concert....

...and yes, I'm a little embarrassed. 

I love music.  Love live music, was a big local concert goer in my day!  Of course, Jack would be the same, right?

Well, have you head of this little show called American Idol?
Jeff and I are fans...I'm a little embarrassed about it, but we watch every week, get excited (or annoyed) about who gets kicked of...we're a little into it. 

And so is our neighbor!  Like I've said before, we live in an older neighborhood.  Older homes, and older people.  Our 75ish year old neighbor, Wacel, is the youngest older person I've ever known!  She recycles everything, mows her own yard, takes painting classes, walks like a million miles a day and even has a compost pile in the back yard.  And...she loves, LOVES, American Idol!  And her favorite has been Casey James.
Oh wait, she swears he performs better when he wears his hair down...:)

Anyways, Casey is a Fort Worth guy, and since he's in the top 3, they did a hometown visit which included a 3 song concert at the Stockyards...how could we not ask Wacel if she wanted to go!?!?!?!? 

It was pouring down rain Friday afternoon when the 4 of us piled in the car and headed down to the Stockyards.  Thankfully, my sister works at Billy Bob's and had the inside scoop as to the rain plan.  We got there, and headed in the direction of the concert and Wacel got a FRONT ROW SEAT  to the big show!  Love her.  She was snatching up the signs they were passing out, bracing herself against the pole support as to not get knocked over by the throngs of teenage girls vying for Casey's attention.  She had a blast!!!

And this is how Jack sat the entire time. 
Laaaaaid back, feet propped up, chillin'.  He's not phased by semi famous people! 

As a side note, I think it would be best for Casey to not win....he's more of a John Mayer/Gavin DeGraw type that really will sound better at a small intimate venue, rather than the American Airlines Center.  I'm just sayin'.  You've got your notoriety, go ahead and pray you don't win and have to jump through all of the hoops that winning AI entails....
