Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

Boot Scootin' Boogie

Woohoo, date night! David and I are headed to the 12th Annual "Boot Scoot" sponsored by Doha's Texas A&M club. It's advertised to be an evening of music, dancing, door prizes, and a TEXAS sized buffet. Yeehaw! We won't have Brooks & Dunn, George Straight or The Bellamy Brothers (note to Mike, please arrange for the future) to play live, but there will be a D.J. on board to hook us up with all our favorites. I'm looking forward to dusting off my cowboy boots and hitting the floor. Oh shoot, never mind, I left those in Austin, never thinking the Middle East would beckon them. Improvisation is my specialty, so no worries. The caveat on the 350QR ticket is "CASH BAR". Geez, $97 a ticket and adult refreshments aren't included? Ok, ok, it's a fundraiser for a worthy cause AND we get to let our hair down and feel a little bit like we're back at the ranch. Meanwhile...gotta go practice my two step.

"Yeah, get down, turn around go to town boot scootin' boogie"

  2. I love Doha just as it is, but it was pretty cool to be in a setting that felt TOTALLY TEXAS!

    Glad you tried out Hong Kong...I went back this week and visited Myrna for a hair color (the secret's out!) and a trim. She did a great job. It's a one stop shop. Love it!

    Looking forward to meeting you, as well :)


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
