Bowie video day (Fantastic Voyage- 2004 Reality tour)

Fantastic Voyage is one of my favorite songs by David Bowie. I even named my blog after this song. hehee. My blog is also named after my Arabian mare, Fantastyk Gal, Annie. I had to keep the tradition going so I named Yalla! FantastyKheema after her grandmother, Fantastka, and her grandfather, Khemosabi.

This week, I present you with a video from the 2004 Reality tour. My husband and I played groupie and followed him on tour to three concerts that year. Well, I played groupie and he tagged along. lol. I bought tickets to the Joint in Las Vegas and to Phoenix. Then when another concert was announcded in Las Vegas, I bought tickets for that one too. I sold my Phoenix tickets on ebay because it was 29th row and I decided that would be too far back. Then I found tickets on ebay for the 10th row in Phoenix and had to buy those. We made two weekends of it- going to Las Vegas the first weekend and then Phoenix and Las Vegas two nights in a row on the second weekend. I don't regret it a bit and I think my husband really enjoyed the trips and concerts too. Who doesn't like going to Las Vegas?

A few months after our concerts, Bowie had a heart attack and surgery and now he is pretty much retired, living in New York with his beautiful wife Iman and their little girl. I seriously considered giving Yalla! the name Iman except that I wasn't sure if she was going to be dark or gray in color. I thought she needed to be tall, dark, and beautiful to have a name like Iman. Anyway, here is Fantastic Voyage. Enjoy!

We were told Zeppelin was two years old when we got him last year, so I'm assuming he'll turn three this spring sometime. :) I don't know his exact birthday though. I'll have to pick one. :) Maybe he can share Chrome's birthday to make it easier.
