It is Stuart's birthday so as a present I got him tickets to the Dolly Parton concert.  This was her first time in Australia in 25 years, and this was her first stop on her Australia tour.  They were pretty good seats in the front row and somewhere towards the middle of the stage, which made for great photo opportunities.

Stuart took all of these photos.  I only got 3 photos and all were small and blurry.  I figured that if Dolly Parton was to look at me, I didn't want my face hidden behind a smart phone.

Best joke of the night, was after she kept untangling her hair from her microphone, she said, "Don't worry it doesn't hurt me one bit... but there's a lady in Korea who is whoopin' right now."

It was somewhere around this stage that Dolly Parton pointed at Stuart and I and said, "I see a couple of good lookin' gentlemen in the front row."  What can I say?  She's got good taste.
You should have seen this guitar.  It was covered in Rhinestones!

When Dolly first appeared on stage, she was playing a white and rhinestone incrusted fiddle.  PS - Her boobs don't look so big in person, but they sure do have a way of catching the light!

I would classify Dolly Parton as a camera whore.  It appeared to me that whenever she would notice someone pointing a camera in her direction, without missing a beat she would pause for a split second and pose.

Wow! I guess those were good seats if she could see the two of you! What a fun bday present. Hasn't she had a boob reduction? I don't know, but I thought I had heard that once.

@Pumpkin - I think I also read that she might have had a boob reduction. I was thinking during the concert that for being so large, they certainly didn't move very much, or even at all.

So either she has them exceptionally well supported, or she has had a breast reduction and uses padding to keep her signature look.

A sparkly guitar? Really! How fun!

What a great birthday present. I hope you got an appropriate "thank you" gift. ;-)

@Mom #1 - Yes! There was a sparkly guitar, a sparkly grand piano and a sparkly mountain harp
