For Those About to Rock.....

We Salute you!
I'll explain the tittle to this post in a minute. I finished Britty Kitty today. I just love the colors in this piece. It was such a quick stitch (a week), it would have been done sooner if I hadn't had my headache on Wed/Thursday.

Stitched on 28 count White Lugana

I'm not sure what I'm going to work on next. I tried to pick up a few things tonight while I watched the football but, the more the Pats lost the more depressed I got so I didn't feel like stitching. I know there is always next year but I didn't want the Colts to go to the Superbowl.


Ok now onto the title of my bog for today. Yesterday at 7:49am the city of New Haven imploded the New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum. So the tittle, taken from the AC/DC song is my tribute to the Coliseum and all the concerts I went to there. Most of the structure was already gone. The parking garage was built on the top of the building because the water table was to high to put it underground.

This is the Coliseum just before implosion

And a few pics as the smoke cleared. My camera froze up so I didn't get any shots of it coming down but MAN was it impressive. The whole thing from detonation to collaps took 17 seconds.


About 20,000 people turned up in the city to watch the implosion. I do have to say that it was pretty impressive!
