    Nelly, you know the answer to that one!

    Harriet, I love the idea about the "We Believe" signs, but I'm not gonna have time today to do anything but get ready for tonight, then get as much sleep as possible.

    The weather is getting worse by the minute with probable showers and T-storms for tomorrow. I recommend bringing plastic bags for your valuables, such as your camera, wallet, or purse. It saved my stuff at Fan Fair last month.

    See ya soon Terri!

    PJ,

    I'm not sure if they will have them there. But if they do, I assume you would like one??

    You bet Terri, thanks for asking!

    I was also asking so maybe those folks who are traveling to Philly who won't have a chance to call in and win might be able to get a souvenir as well.

    I WON ONE!!!

    I just got back from picking up my shirt at XTU!!! Awesome shirt!!

    PJ, I asked, they said they aren't selling them, but there will be chances to win the tomorrow. I doubt they'd give me another since I'm wearing mine, but hopefully we'll be able to get some more.

    Congrats Terri!

    I didn't think they would be selling them but thought they might be available if the station were doing a live remote tomorrow.

    Philly seems to be a pro-Garth city

    conGARTHulations!

    That's great. I won't be able to see it though. I don't think I can get the tv special out here. There is a few July 4th special on but none at 7pm PDT on ABC here. There are 3 of them on at 10 pm, including one on my ABC station. Guess I will tune in then, just in case it is delayed for us west coasters. I hope so. My TV Guide says nothing about what's going to be on.

    ANYWAY, Have a great time, everyone who is going. Make sure to report back with details, details, details, and pix.

    Ellie,

    See if any of the listings call it an ABC News Special or Independence Day 2001...that's what it's being called in my area.

    Thanks for the tip, Paula. But no dice. there is a show called Independance Day on an ABC station, only it's the one I DON"T get. The one I do, is a local fireworks show out of Seattle. I will wait for pix if there are any. Thanks anyway.

    Oh woe is me!

    Ellie !

    If it helps, I set two VCR's before we left for Denver this morning (knowing we'd be getting home late) and NEITHER RECORDED!!! We had a thunder & lightning storm here that wiped out the programing on them and so I missed seeing Garth too! Let's both feel sorry for ourselves and whine alot, maybe someone will offer to send us a copy if we moan and groan enough!

    Well, both my sisters taped it for me in case my tape didn't work. If all three come out, I can offer the other two to you guys. I'll bet PJ has it taped too and can make copies...right PJ?

    I'm in Seattle right now and they didn't show it here either. I'm hoping my VCRs did better at home than Mary Liz's.

    When and Where?

    SIGH.... Mary Liz..... I'll bring plenty of whine to share. Thanks Paula and PJ for the offers of copies, I greatly appreciate it. I'll let you know. I read that he wasn't on all that long. If I could see pix of him, that will be enough. So, let's just wait and see what the Philly Garthnutts have brought back. lol..

    Yay Paula!!!!

    I'll take you up on your offer Paula, if your tapes come out okay, that is. Thank you, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! That is sooooo sweet of you! Let me know what I can send you for the tape and postage. I was just heartbroken, now I don't feel so bad, since there is a chance I may get to see the show after all thanks to you!

    Friends are kisses blown to us by angels!
