    Garth to be in Tucson Feb 28th!

    I just got the information from Phoenix, Arizona's Channel 5 news station ~ it's official!

    Garth will be in Tucson to read to elementary students Thursday afternoon for the Read Across America program...

    ...so guess where he'll probably show up Thursday morning?

    ...Well, the World Series Champions 2001 ~ Arizona Diamondbacks have Spring Practice in Tucson...and they just happen to be near a grade school...


    Last I knew 2+2 still equals 4!!!!


    Amy was on the phone with me when I caught the news flash. She just happens to have tomorrow off work and I'm off anyway and just got paid...Tucson is only a three hour drive....

    ...ROAD TRIP!!!!!


    **Y@nkee is dancing with excitement!!!**

    It will be the first time and probably last time I will ever get to meet Garth ~ and I have Amy to introduce me!!!!

    Life is too short NOT to be a Garth Brooks fan!

    I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day!!!

    Y@nkee,

    You keep 'believing' like that and you'll make it happen!

    I hope it works out just like you planned!

    You and Amy have a great time and a safe trip!

    Gee, I just made this lengthy post and somehow (I only put 7 smiley faces) it made me go BACK when I posted and wiped out EVERYTHING I wrote! BIG BUMMER!!!

    I'm paying Kinko's a stinkin' 2 bux per 5 mins so this one will be short!

    I read that Garth would be reading with pitcher Curt Schilling of the AZ Diamondbacks today at Thornydale Elementary School. It was in the Arizona Republic newspaper this morning. But isn't it true he has other schools to read to today and tomorrow? That's what I gathered from what I read here on the home page.

    So Chrys! Why haven't you called me yet this morn??!!!! We should be there in Tucson now! Heeheehee You know how I want to tell Garth that I would like to have my Johnny Bench book back! Yea yea! LOL

    I miss you all sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    much! I've gotta see if Y@nkee's ready to go to Tucson! It's a shot in the dark but it's a beautiful 77 degree day!

    I'm outta here! My email is ohioamy77@yahoo.com

    God bless.

    Well, we didn't make the trip ~

    By the time we found out what school Garth would be at, there wasn't enough time to make the trip down to Tucson to meet up with him.

    (Note to self: Gotta get that man's cell phone number!)]

    Amy called Camel-Country radio and was told they knew where and when but that Garth would not be making any personal appearances. Maybe we should have gone anyway and hung out at the local Taco Bell???

    I'm not giving up hope on one day meeting Garth. I know in my heart that it will happen, even if I have to shanghai Amy and drive to Yukon, Oklahoma! (Like she'd put up a fight!)

    I hope someone in Tucson was able to get an interview or something...I'll keep my eyes and ears open for any report. If we'd had more than 12 hours notice, we could have had it all arranged.

    Sorry to disappoint everyone ~ but I'm majorly disappointed myself!

    Amy,

    It was great to read a post from you!!!!
    You've made my day!


    Y@nkee,

    I believe you'll get your chance one day! Don't be too disappointed! I know you had your hopes up...but sometimes things don't work out for a reason!

    For instance you could've been driving there so fast to see Garth you might've had an accident or something! So, it didn't work out and you are safe and sound now!

    Things could be worse!

    Keep believing,
    Diane

    Diane,

    You keep on writing Garth-Fantasies like you have been and I'll start believing I've already been there!!!

    Thanks for the support everyone - sorry it turned out to be such a bummer!

    That's too bad you two didn't get a chance to see Garth. If you're gonna head to OK though, want to make a little detour to pick me up and take me with too? LOL
