John Williams concert number three

We got in late last Sunday night and the week has been hectic so I never did mention anything about the last concert at Ruth Eckerd hall with the Florida Orchestra. Like the first two events, R2 performed flawlessly and the crowd was great. We met a lot of nice people and R2 was a big hit.

The icing on the cake Sunday was we received free tickets to see the John Williams tribute concert which was beautiful.

Once in a long narrow lobby a very large crowd of people started gathering/swarming around R2. The problem was the crowd got so big it started clogging up the hall so people couldn't get by. So I slowly walked R2 forward to an area in the lobby area that could accomodate the crowd. The entire crowd moved with R2 which unblocked the passageway. You had to have been there to appreciate it. I felt like my remote control now had the power to move crowds.

So now I can slowly get back into finishing R2. Wrangling him in public sure is fun though.

Dear Jim - Thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I'm honored that you enjoy reading about my horses. We're big fans of R2 and his friends in my house. I'll stop by here to see you here again soon.

Thanks for stopping by Victoria. Your "Teachings of the horse" blog is my absolute favorite on the internet and I've been following it for a long time. The Anne Rudloe quote I have on my blog's sidebar came from one of your entries.
