In case you're into Cirque du Soleil, here is an hour long free entertainment.

Have some wine and (probably not saying it right, but) "prendre plaisir"

or....I'll just use my own native version, "disfruta!"

Hello ladyzetta.  The one I shared on April 3rd is pretty good too.  My friend's sister really liked that one.  I like it too.

Actually, a couple of years ago I went to see Volta here in town, and saw that hair swinging lady perform.  I was in awe.  I don't know how she does that!

Later, I had to search online more info. about her, and found one interview of how she prepares and stuff.  She did say part of her performance needs to remain a secret for safety reasons.  I wonder, is she really, really, swinging from her hair?!  OUCH!  I can't imagine the roots being pulled like that and perform with no serious pain.

Starts at 5 est today, Cirque du Soleil

(also, livenation has live from home concerts if you’re interested....some on youtube.  Last Monday I ROCKED to a Metallica 2017 full concert! One of my co-workers left work early to enjoy the free concert too while his dog's ears burned! Poor thing. https://www.livenation.com/  And of course, there are other more pleasant tunes to listen to if you’re interested.)

Thanks Ruth,  I did watch a few of these today it is so amazing how the dancers are able to do all these things. I enjoyed the fire dancing one the best I wonder how many times he actually has burnt himself.

 I bet you Dad just lays there and enjoys all the music and bright lights and dancing. Do you sit and watch these with your Dad?  You are such a good daughter.

 I tried to do the sing alone it was hard I had no idea what they were saying and I did not know how to read the words .What language are they singing?  Thanks Again. Hugs Zetta

Hello ladyzetta.  I watch these on my laptop.  I don't have cable and I'm not sure how to display it on the tv screen.  But, dad is listening to the music
Actually, when he was not so bad in his disease, I took him to a couple of these Cirque du Soleil shows in town.  The first one I liked the best but I can't remember the name of the show.  It was sort of a gypsy theme.  Real good dancing.   The second one was "Toruk".   The lights were beautiful.  Dad liked them both.  
But I did get worried when I took him to the second show because he was forgetting more and didn't really remember the show we saw before.  It bothered me that he had forgotten such a good show.
And one time we went to see the musical " The Lion King".  He was like a little kid  with that one.  We really liked that too.

The first song "Alegria" in the sing along video is Spanish. The rest of the other songs I don't know.   And the truth is, I kinda lost my patience with that video.  There were too many cut out scenes of different shows, and everyone seems too happy for me.  It's all confusing and it kinda got me exhausted.  I guess I wasn't in the mood (Covid 19 bad news everyday, and work reduction). I like the music though. I think I'll just listen to the music and not watch the video.

But, I'm sure the video that  comes out tomorrow will be better.

Thank you ladyzetta.  I hope you and all in this group here are doing well.  

Dad is oblivious and seems to be in a better place not knowing what's going on in the world    right now.  He's just happy eating good food and being pampered.  Big happy baby.

Actually, I think it's  a mixture of languages.  Some of it is Spanish though.  I'm trying to get into this video but I turned it off again.  I'll try again later.

Welp....guess I’ll stop sending these out...everyone running out wild, with or without masks,  whatever side you’re on this Memorial Day weekend. Except for those staying home to take care of someone with dementia of course. Nothing new. Anyway, my vote:

Let the trees grow wild and the wild run free! Yeehaw!

Your last and bonus video:

Love ya! And stay safe!

Thank You Ruth for the videos. I did watch a few of them and enjoyed them but I was having to watch bits and pieces of them it never seems I have long enough to watch one from beginning to end. I am not sure why I really have nothing else to do. I love TV and thats pretty much all I do. That and being lazy. 

You take care and Stay Safe. Hugs to You and your Dad. Zetta
