Sweet Caroline..Bom Bom Bom..

So last night I went to the Neil Diamond concert. I was supposed to go with Eric, Jennylin, Patti and Scott.. Well due to a huge snow storm that came through Eric and Jennylin were unable to make the trip down. Scott and Patti ended up with conflicting agendas.. So I called upon some great friends and they came along.

When I was younger I could not stand Neil.. He was all my Mom listed to..PAINFUL!!!
Then the Jazz Singer came out and I have been a fan ever since. I have been to at least 4 of his concerts..

I wanted to go this year for Mom. His last album came out while she was sick and in the hospital. She had be go buy it and download it on her I-pod. So I think she got to hear it at least once. I remember her being bummed that she had not seen Salt Lake on his concert schedule.. I told her we would just go wherever he was going to be.

Anyway it was a great concert . I had some quite moments thinking of Mom but the rest of the time I was dancing away with my friends!

How fun... maybe I should give Donny Osmond a chance for my mom :)

Sounds like fun. My parents used to play this Neil Diamond cd all the time and I hated it. Now that I am older I love his music.

I feel very lucky in that Lorrie gave Dave and I the wonderful opportunity to see Neil Diamond in January when he was in Bakersfield. I enjoyed the concert so much.
Love, Lorrel
