Music and a gift
First off , I want to show this gift that came for me yesterday in the mail! It was a bloggy drawing win from Brandy at her blog ~ artbrat.blogspot.com/.
What I won is a very pretty, handmade beaded necklace in pretty spring colors.
This is a very talented blogger. Visit her when you have a chance...lots of pretty stuff to see there!
Charles and I enjoyed our night out to see Gordon Lightfoot. We have both liked his music a lot since the 7os and saw him once before in Miami. (Probably 30 years ago!!)
( some info on Gordon Lightfoot here)
He still sounds much as he did in the early days although he looks a lot different. I think he has had some serious health problems in recent years and appears frail and very thin.
Nevertheless, he played to a very attentive and enthusiastic audience that seemed to enjoy every moment of the show; an older audience-to be sure! One lady-older than me from what I could see- was heard calling out to Gordon, 'I love you!' :) And at one point I was afraid she was about to be thrown out (by an usher) for taking pictures that were not permitted! LOL- But she put her camera away without a fight!
I know we enjoyed the show! ;) We had front row seats- but to the side- so we had excellent sound and view of the show! (no cameras were allowed so -no pictures!)
It was good to hear all the old familiar songs and a couple of new ones. When he finally left the stage , after 2 hours with one short break between, he came back with one more song! ( WE-the audience - insisted!! :) ) This one I had been hoping for and it had been absent among his string of familiar songs that he had played for us... LOL- I (~ sort of~) did a little 'jump for joy' when he started playing, 'Get Out Old Dan's Records!' I wish I could find a video of that but haven't been able to! It's a very lively and happy sounding song!
Charles and me, in 1978, on our way to see Gordon Lightfoot for the first time!
...And Charles and me-yesterday...30 years later! :)
:) Surprisingly~ 30 years makes a difference in all of us!
Thanks to our daughter, Tina, for this very thoughtful gift of the tickets to this show! We both enjoyed the night very much!
