my grandpa passed away today..7-10-07..I was there when he died along with my family. Not sure when I will be back on here blogging...Take care.

ok, I am leaving for MI today, sorry this post has no spell check and there are spaces and its long...blogger wouldnt let me fix a fuc*ing thing....if it makes no sence, dont blame me.

First up, I appologize for my absecne to this blog and yours.

Yesterday was a pretty busy day, of course it was the day of my big Prince fanfare.

But before I get to the hot sweltering details of such, I will fill you in on something.

My poor gramps is in the hosptial right now. I guess he has a pretty bad infection and his blood count is very low. I am thinking of leaving ASAP for the Homeland, cause I fear he may just go down hill very fast and I want to spend time with him before its too late.

What really pisses me off is NO ONE in my family has called to tell me this. I had my mom call my grandma because I know she wont tell me how he is really doing.

My dad never called, no one did...What they do not understand is that me being so far away, I need to know these things because he is 88 years old and he could go down hill very quickly. I dont want the call he has passed and then find out he had been in the hosptial for two days, and those being two days I could of spent with him.

I dont get why they dont tell me....It inferates me.

So, when I go, I will just go...I will leave you a message in my comments section, I wont have time to post..

Please say a lil prayer for him...


OK, on to the Prince show...Oh and I DO have a pic of ME and PRINCE...wait and see u bitches..

Ok, so the doors were to open at 7:30 as the show starts at 8:30. Me being the punctiual gal I am, was there inside the Target Center at 6:45. I wanted to be one of the first ones inside.

We were like second in line....It was beautiful.

Then something awful happend.

It was 8pm and the doors were still not opening. Mind you it was 105 outside and just as hot inside..

When people from the Target Center finally came out she said..

Prince is not hear yet, they are still doing soundchecks and we are waiting to hear from his people as to wheather we can let you in yet or not..


His people were the ones making us wait...

The doors finally opened around nine, which is one and a half hours late..Then the show did not start until just after 10, which was over 90 minutes late.

The concert wrapped up sometime around 12:15 am.

I was NOT impressed.

It was a great show, dont get me wrong...It is just Prince's ego that has me with a bad taste in my mouth.

Before we leave Mr Shaky asks me..

so on a scale of 1-10 how slutty are you going to be dressed

I told him 25...

I wanted to leave a tad early to I could go buy a nice new shirt..a purple one.

I find one, he says,

well since there isnt much matarail to it, that should be pretty cheap.


So here are some pics for u..

Now mind you, I was busted and was told I had to put my camera I did not get to take many...and my photoshop is on my other computer, the one that doesnt work, so u have to bear with me...they are kinda dark..

They are not the best pics, but its hard to get good pics when it is so dark.

So sue me.

Ok, here is the pic you have all been waiting for..this is priceless. My most prized photot of all time..

Me and Prince..

Pretty sweet huh?

Here is me after we are home...its about 1:30am...I am beat.

For any of you die hard fans, he had a few specail guests, the first being Wendy from his Revalution days...remeber Lisa and Wendy?...yes well, it was Wendy..

Then he had Sheila E. She did some percussion, some singing, it was great. Her and Prince sang her same Glamours Life.

The whole show Mr Shaky sat in his chair holding my purse. The bastard even fell asleep durring the show.

I swear.To God. He did.

His show was very jazzy, which I did not care for..lots of sax and trombones and such.

All and all it was a nice time..

other then heat, the wait to get in, the wait for show once we got in, the jazzy shit, being busted with my camera, shaky falling asleep, the late night of it all.

Ok, So I may be leaving soon, please hold get thoughts as I am not sure how this is going to work out..My plans may be all fuddled up and I am not sure how things are going to work..If I am going to drive or fly, or what..I dont know..

I am going to call this morning to see how he is, although I am not even suppose to know, so I am going to have my mom call my grandma..

This still pisses me off. If I miss anything, I will never forgive the people who are not keeping me informed. To them it may not be a big deal, but to me, I know that he could go downhill very quickly, and if I miss being with him because no one informed me he was sick...That is something I will never get over. Plus The Boy knows he is sick and he is very much looking forward to seeing grandpa..If he does not get to see him, he will be crushed.

So think of us over the enxt few days, I will do my best to keep u informed.

Sorry this shit is so long.

Flipping the bird to Prince's people.

I can't believe Mr. Shaky fell asleep.

Best wishes to your grandpa.

Gette said...

Good luck. Whats with all the blank space?

MamaMichelsBabies said...

Everyone that went to that show that Big Ug talked to said it was a hassle and not worth the stress. He works downtown,and weirdly enough most of the parking lots were empty by 1:30, although Prince apparently played until 4am, when MPD shur him down.

Hope your Papa is feeling better when you get to him, thinkin of ya.

KrazyMom said...

Thinking of you girl. If he is transferred over my way (as they usually are from Hickville) know that you are MORE than welcome to stay with us! We have lots of room if you can stand the chaos of seven daycare kids..haha.

It looks like you had pretty good seats for the concert. Too bad Shaky was soooo tired! :)

lo said...

sending you wishes.....for you and your grandpa

on another note i missed something-how did mr Shakey end up at teh concert!??!

Angie said...

keep us posted on your grandpa, hope all is well and your able to see him......

sorry the concert was a bit of a bummer, but I like your new shirt

Tom said...

When I saw The Who in '79, sleep was not possible due to the decibels put out (my ears still ain't right!) Was the show that quiet?
Too bad I'm drug tested now at work,a little herb at a show is good!
Prayers skyward for your Granddad, and don't count him out.....

Kendra Lynn said...

Wow...sounds like a blast. :)
Glad you are well...I'll say a prayer for your grandpa.


nora said...

Okay, I also missed the chapter about Mr. Shaky going to the concert. Did he wear a slinky purple shirt also? Maybe he was just meditating, not really sleeping.

I'm sorry about your grandfather. Family communication just stinks. Sometimes my mom will tell one child something four times and not tell the other three at all.

1 plus twins said...

Fantastagirl said...

Best wishes to your grandpa!

Glad you had a great time at the concert!

Hails said...

Anyways I hope he is okay hun!

Cliff said...

Ya'll and Gramps are in my prayers. If I had been sitting by could have woke me up too.

Just A Girl said...

That's hilarious, Shaky fell asleep at a Prince concert.

Sorry to hear about your Grandpa being sick(er). Hope your trip to the homeland is safe and hope you get to spend lots of quality time with your Grandpa.

The Kept Woman said...

Dammit that was a lot of spaces, girl.

Hell, as I understand it nobody's families are as normal as they should be when dispersing information on people's seems to be a unviversal thing.

patti_cake said...

I am so sorry about your Grandpa. I hope he is okay and y'all get to spend some quality time with him.

I don't care about his "people" his "ego" or anything else i'd love to see Prince one time before I die.
I can't BELIEVE Mr. Shaky fell asleep!
You did good with the pics.

Yippeeskip said...

Good thoughts on Pops, I once fell asleep at the Rose Parade (I also woke up there too and had no idea how I got there but that's another story)

Ba Doozie said...

sorry bout gramps, hope all is well. What in the tarnations is wrong with your blog, I scrolled for the better part of the morning to get to the pictures

aatank said...

We're praying for your grandpa! and hape you have a safe trip to the home land.

I love the new purple shirt~did Mr. Shaky have matching thongs.

We'll be thinking of you and if you do get to town early give me a call, I'm the only Schomaker in the book.

Humincat said...

Cute shirt, nice pics, crappy news on Gramps, hilariously funny spaces, Overall,glad you posted, I was missing me some smartass. OH, you look Super perty with that pic of you and Prince.

Halfmexican Mama said...

Shaky is so funny, in his own Shky way. Hope Dave pulls through okay and hope you get to see him and that he is coherent. I hope to see you too..I love you you slut!

JoeinVegas said...

Congratulations, I wish to give you an award for the longest blog posting. (I'll have to start up Photoshop and make something).
Looking at the photos, were you the one on the left or the right dancing behind him?
Mr. Prince (I can't spell his new name, is he really back to the old one?) has a regular gig here at the Rio, and yes, even here he keeps such prompt hours for his appearences.

Wendy said...

My husband would probably fall asleep too. What is it with men? No damn fun. My Gwen Stefani pictures look about the same as yours. It's hard to take pictures at a concert.

Fingers crossed for your grandpa!

oliveoyl64 said...

Hope gramps is okay. My family is quite dysfunctional that way too.

Shaky and I have something in common...... I fell asleep during a Prince concert TOO. It was my first date with the guy and he said I was snoring.


Hope you see your Gramps , tough stuff , sorry .

Great shirt you looked great ! rOCK on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jamie Dawn said...

So sorry to hear about your Gramps. It's good that you are taking time to see him since you have no idea what the future holds for him. You will not regret having gone there even if he recovers and lives a long time. Time with him is precious, and I hope he does recover form this infection, so you can have more time with him in the future. Hugs to you!!

Mr. Shaky sounds like a diehard fan of Prince. :-)
How funny that he sat the whole time and even fell asleep. I would have enjoyed the jazzy songs a lot.
I have always been impressed by Prince's versatality.
What a bummer about those delays. I hope Prince apologized to his audience. If he didn't, he's a putz.
I can't believe they didn't allow people to take pics during the concert. What a stupid rule!!

Take care.

Wendy said...

I am really sorry to hear about your grandpa. Good thoughts coming your way.

KrazyMom said...

Just got a call letting me know. I am so sorry for your loss! I will be seeing you in the next few days!

Tom said...

Bossy, my best to You and Shaky and the Bees....Grandpa is in heaven and really in heaven he really has only begun to LIVE....He does live on through Your's and the kids personalities and what You are now has part of him in it.. ..I'm sure He'd want you to stay close with Gram but you know that I'm sure..God Bless

Meow (aka Connie) said...

Glad the concert was great ... how come Mr Shaky was with you ?? Thought you were going with some gal pals !! Fancy falling asleep, what a disgrace !!
What's with all the blank space between words and pics ??
Thinking of you, hoping you're OK.
Take care, Meow
