This time of year always makes Rhonda and I a little nostalgic. I’m sure that part of that is because it is the start of the holiday season. On top of that, it marks the anniversary of a trip we took to the UK to see some shows. If you have been reading this blog for a long time, you know that we really, really, really wanted to see Duran play in their home country. So, we plotted, planned and saved so that we could venture across the pond in May of 2011, only to face pretty significant disappointment as the shows got canceled. Yes, that was when Simon lost his voice. We did not give up, however. No, we decided then and there to go back, if and when Simon could sing again. Luckily for us, we did not have to wait long as the shows were rescheduled for November and December of the same year. Then, we finally got our shows! As you might imagine, the shows were amazing and the tour/trip itself was beyond memorable. We might even say it was the tour of a lifetime. This Vodka Friday allowed us to indulge ourselves in sharing our memories.
