02-09-2003, 09:59 AM
I'll be there with a friend of mine who is also a big JE fan! This will be my 2nd seminar and I know she has been to a few also. I'm pretty excited.
Thanks for the headcount suggestion, bingomama992000.
Okay, people, who will be attending the Houston Seminar on Sunday, February 23rd at the Verizon Theater? It's exactly 2 weeks away! :D
I will be there with my husband and two family members!
P.S. Remember not to post exact seating information! :)

I'll be there with one of my daughters ... the other 3 can't make it, but have told us to say hello to all of our dear, departed relatives!!! This is my first opportunity to see John "in the flesh" so it will be a definite treat.
Looking forward to hopefully meeting the rest of the Houston Bunch.

I will be there with my sister, brother, and his wife. Two of us (me and someone else) will be in Dallas as well.
I went to see him 1 year ago today also.
I can't wait!!!!!!

i will be at the houston seminar! i can't believe i am really going! i also can't believe Chuck is going with me! he has always been quite the skeptic! he will watch JE sometimes, but acts like he doesn't believe any of it! well, i called him at work to tell him i was going and strictly out of politeness i asked if he wanted to go. he said yes! i couldn't believe it! i told him it was too expensive (i am unemployed at the moment) for him to go if he just being nice and going with me....oh, no, he said he wanted to go!
hmmmm....sure makes me wonder....what he really thinks....
he lost both his parents within a week of each other and they crossed over quite suddenly. he was devastated! he was only 29 yrs old and had never lost any one before this. he and his mom were best friends loved to talk and cook together.
his way of dealing with the loss is to not think about it. not good, but the best he can do right now. he gets big tears in his eyes when john is on, but he tries to hide it.
i am talking non-stop to his parents to please come through for him. i think he is also hopeing secretly and refusing to believe at the same time. he didn't get to say goodbye to his father. we had gone out of town right after burying his mother and the police came to where we were and told him his father had passed away during the nite.
i am going with an open mind, ready to say hi to anyone that wants to talk. i am not expecting a reading and i am fine with that. i did prepare Chuck that the chances of us getting a reading is just this side of non-existant. i don't want him to get his hopes up.
now if i could just figure out how to get a t-shirt.....

i'm assuming that chuck is your significant other and i'm excited for you both. my husband has always made fun of me and drops little comments about JE all of the time. both of his parents are living and he really hasn't lost anyone close. i've always told him that if he had he would probably have been much more open to this kind of thing. if for no other reason, it's because you want it to be true when you've lost someone close. that's my opinion anyway.
funny thing is, i had bought tickets to the dallas seminar and two days later he announced houston so i ended up buying four tickects for the houston seminar. since my sister was going to go to dallas with me originally and didn't really want to go to both i just asked him if he wanted to go. i didn't think he would but he said "sure, if you want me to" and i said "I'll find someone to go if you don't want to, don't just go because I want you to" to that he replied "no I'd like to go".
as much as i want to get a reading, i hope he gets one even more. and now after hearing what you have said about chuck i hope he gets one too!:lwink:
02-10-2003, 09:18 PM
yes, chuck is my significant other! i guess i left that part out...
anyway, yours is just like mine! i swear i think men were dropped off on this planet by aliens a long time ago as a joke of some kind!(lol!) and they say we are hard to understand!
oh well....maybe we will see you there!

SherryF, just to let you know that seeing John at a seminar is like eating potato chips;) you don't just want one. :jumper: We have been to four and don't plan on stopping. As long as it is close.;)

I've seen him once live already a year ago and you are right! I was looking into going to Indianapolis also but before I got word back from the friend who might have joined me tics were sold out. My husband thinks i'm cooky enough - i'm sure he'd flip if I had actually gone.
I tape the show every day and have watched him for a couple of years now. I think I've seen almost every episode except for a few lately. I've been busy and haven't caught up on the ones I have taped.
Were you at the Houston or San Antonio seminars a year ago?
02-12-2003, 09:00 AM
I've been to Philly, Atlantic City, Columbus, Jamestown NY. Texas is a little too far for me.
Sherry, I was at the Houston seminar last February, Austin in May 2001, and Houston and New Orleans in Nov. 2000.

Forgive me :confused:
I just assumed you were going to houston and that it was close to you - I just realized you're in PA!!!
I have the funniest story about buying tickets to the seminar. It's lengthy but I'll share it for anyone that cares to hear it.
I'll post it in a little while after I get it written up.

You and I discussed the seminar already last summer - I've visited and followed many discussions and just didnt' chime in. My old PC logged me in automatically so I had forgotten my login and pw but, I got a new PC and so it didn't auto log-in the first visit. I couldn't remember my old user name and password info so I created another name just recently.
You might remember, I was trying to find out if anyone knew the family of Tina that was the first reading (the "big flag" shirt lady) at that seminar.
I mentioned that I thought my Mom might have been the older woman who "jumped in the car" with him on the way to the seminar - and that I was shocked that the first thing he said was something about translpants and just the night before I had spoken out loud to her asking her to come through and that was one of the specific items I suggested would help me know it was her - then I missed it because didn't speak up when he said it. I'm glad Tina's family got a read - they must have needed it more than me - I believe everything happens for a reason (Mom always told me that) and it's just in line with "those who are supposed to get a reading, will"
I think we shared some possible "me toos" that we had heard.
I am so excited. I can't wait for this one. I have a family member who passed a couple of weeks ago and I had turned her on to Crossing Over about a year ago when I had invited her to come with my sister from Florida to join us at that seminar. She didn't come but my sister did. I had jokingly asked her sometime last year to meet me at the next JE seminar after whichever one of us first. Her death was very unexpected but we were lucky to have just spent Christmas with her and her son (who just lost his wife in October - totally unexpected also).
I'll tell you a little more in the ticket story I'm going to post soon - if you want to read it.

This is long but I wanted to share. My husband doesn't lend a very good ear for JE stuff! :(
I keep a very close eye on John’s seminar tour schedule on his website. I probably check it once or twice a week for about 2 years. The day that tickets went on sale for the Sept. 16th 2001 JE seminar I bought mine. I wasn’t missing it for the world. As many of you may remember, that seminar was cancelled because of the World Trade Center tragedy.
I continued to watch the website for new tour info. The day tickets went on sale for the rescheduled seminar, you guessed it, I bought tickets that day. The seminar was scheduled for Saturday, February 9th. I called my sister and my mom’s twin who both live in Florida to come join us. My sister booked a flight and bought a ticket right away. My other sister and I were planning to pick her up at the Houston airport and drive to San Antonio for the seminar, back to Houston that night and she’d fly out on Monday morning (the 11th). She tried to get a flight on Sunday but there were none available. Later, he announced that he would also come to Houston on Sunday the 10th. We called telecharge and they were nice enough to exchange her ticket even though their regular policy states “…no exchanges…”. Good thing she couldn’t find a Sunday flight after all.
I decided to give my San Antonio tickets to a friend at work who was going. He had a couple of other friends that wanted to go also – so that worked out great.
We attended, had a great time, and probably would have been read if I had spoken up. I won’t go into the details about that now though. So, I was hooked, I’m going any time he gets near us!
Months go by, Australia, Australia, Australia……..No new tour announcements. I’m assuming he took some time off for the new baby – what a guy!
Tuesday, January 21st at about 7:00pm I get a call from my cousin – her mom (my mom’s twin) has passed away suddenly. After many calls to family members, etc, just before I went to bed I thought I’d check the website – I hadn’t done it in several days. Low and behold – there it is Dallas – Friday, Feb. 21st.
I have an 8 year old daughter who has never talked or walked in her sleep that we know of. I picked up the phone to call telecharge, walking down the hall just outside the door, the operator answers and I said “I’d like to find out about tickets to the John Edward seminar in Dallas on Feb 21st”…….my daughter, who has been asleep for an hour or so, jumps up out of her bed and walks slowly toward me yelling “wait, wait, wait” with a crying tone in her voice. I had to tell the operator that I’d call back. I comforted her but she never said another word. She looked like she wanted to cry or say something but she just couldn’t. I sat with her for just a couple of minutes and she fell asleep again. (I don’t think she ever really woke up). Less than a minute later she hops up with a smile on her face and says “I have to go potty”. I asked if she’d had a bad dream and she looked at me “like I had 18 heads” (as JE would say) and said “nope”.
So, I’m actually thinking to myself “surely she’s not telling me to wait – he’s coming to Houston also again this time”. Naaah, no way. So the next day I got online and bought the Dallas tickets.
I realized two days later that I should have invited my sister-in-law that lives a couple hours east of Dallas to join us. I called her and she got online while we were on the phone to look for the number to call for tickets. She said “Why would you drive to Dallas when he’s going to be in Houston two days later?” I about fell off my chair – literally. Coincidence – maybe – you decide.
We bought four tickets to Houston. I am going to both, taking either my hubby or sister-in-law to Dallas, and she, her husband (my brother) and my sister in Houston are joining me for the Houston seminar.
If we’re supposed to be read – we will. I’m speaking up this time though. I might seem like a relative stealer but I’m not missing my chance again. This time, I think I’ll be more ready though. I’ll still probably get psychic amnesia if I do get going but there will be four of us to help out.
I can’t wait!!! :D

Will some of you be meeting up before the seminar?
Since our seats are reserved - we don't have to arrive 4 hours early.
Let me know - I'd love to meet any of you!
I've also read about pink balloons, etc. at seminars please tell me what that's all about.
02-12-2003, 08:06 PM
Hi ! I'll be in Houston with 3 friends. I don't need a reading, but all 3 of my friends do. One lost a daughter, the other two have lost their parents. Even if we don't get a reading, it will be great.
I went last year in Houston. and it was incredible.
02-14-2003, 11:01 PM
I will be going with my husband, friend, and cousin who's a sceptic.Can't wait....Hope everyone enjoy's.
*bumping* this thread.
Tomorrow's the day.
02-22-2003, 10:23 AM
I went in to look and see if they solved the last puzzle from last year,You know the murder mystery?Have you heard?
I haven't heard anything, but frankly, I might have missed it, or not connected it with that reading. :shrug:
If much of that investigation is still going on, that could be why we haven't heard.
02-22-2003, 10:43 AM
