February 6th, Concert Daytona - Went to a 60's review concert with Deborah and George. The sound was terrible and it never got better. Rick Levy, a friend of ours, was playing with The Box Tops.

The show was Monday night at The House of Blues in Dallas. Barry also got us invited to a Superbowl Party at the W (33rd floor) on Sunday evening. It was a great party. We listened to some great music. Barry and Lydia couldn't have been better hosts. We met more people than I can remember and we visited Houston & Elm where JFK was assassinated. I stood on a see-through balcony on the 33rd floor overlooking downtown Dallas, discovered Uber, and spent our delay in Atlanta in the Delta Sky Club. Basically had a great time with Theresa and The Dunaways!
