No time to post today, because (a) I just finished a huge post over at The Fun Girls with a FANTASTIC RECIPE, that will help your skin look better than ever, (remember, it’s skin care week over there) and (b) we’re having company tonight, and I’ve got to poach a wild turkey. (Thinking about what that could mean literally fills my pun-loving heart with glee!) but I had a grand date night last night with my dear husband, The Big Bison. He had backstage passes for us to go to The Grand Old Opry.

In a word, it was: AWESOME!

You sacrifice a bit of sound quality when you sit in the pews onstage, but the vibe of being up close and personal with the performers is totally worth it!

I’ll post more on it later, but here’s a shot to wet your whistle:

Sitting in our pew!!! HA! Onstage, at the Opry.

Have you ever been to the Opry? Have you ever thought you might like to go? Tell me about it!


  1. I went once about 10 years ago and saw Little Jimmy Dickens.

  2. He was there last night, Rachel. And he’s a riot at 90!!!

  3. Wow, that sounds like so much fun!! We would love to go the the Opry- especially if I could see Loretta Lynn sing Coal Miner’s Daughter. 🙂

    What a lucky girl you are!

  4. WHAT?! Yes, please post details! I’ve been there twice (the old Ryman). In fact, I got engaged in Nashville, then went to the Grand Ole Opry that night! Very special place to me.

  5. I haven’t been but would like to go sometime.

    Great picture!

  6. The closest I’ve been is I have a friend who lives in Nashville and a cousin of my cousin has played there.

    Been the Albert Hall tho’ 😉

  7. whoa, you went there, you sat THERE? MAN! You and your husband looking terrific and healthy 🙂

  8. What is this “date night” you speak of? (kidding)

    I’d love to go to the Opry. Maybe someday.

  9. It looks like fun, Susan. And you and the Big Bison look great!
