A Tribute To Neil Diamond … Or Maybe Not

We have done the finishing touches on the outdoor kitchen and are really happy with how it turned out 🙂

Another awesome sunset 🙂

We have hosted a few informal happy hours … you know the ones where people stop by and you end up spending a few happy hours visiting … yup that is the life of snowbird whether you are in a park or out in the desert.

Tonight we went to a Neil Diamond tribute concert and I was really excited to go! So after the egg game, where we didn’t win anything 😦 we headed home for a quick dinner then up to the ballroom for the concert.

Well it didn’t start off very good, the sound was terrible and I couldn’t tell whether it was the singer or the music, or a combination of both but it was so disappointing. After a few comments from the audience the singer adjusted some of the sound and it started to get better … or maybe the gin and tonic I took with me was starting to kick in 🙂

Anyway the guy played for two hours and some of his songs were good, but he also played a lot of Neil Diamond songs that I have never heard of. We stayed until the end to get our $10.00 per ticket worth but I think I will play Neil Diamond off my playlist when I walk tomorrow and be happier with the real Neil Diamond music that the concert.

Although I do have an overwhelming urge to watch Jonathan Livingston Seagull again and hubby informed me he had it so I think that will happen before the weekend is over 😀

I watched this little guy one morning while I was making breakfast, I think he was contemplating climbing the stairs to Maxx so that he could reach those yummy green leaves but a golf cart drove by and scared him off.

Until next time …

  1. Even though Tribute Singers put their all into their performance nothing compares to the performer themselves.
    Once attended an actual Gordon Lightfoot Concert that was disappointing. Time has a way of doing that.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the Kitchen.

    It’s about time.

  2. I wonder if any one could ever actually live up to hearing Neil Diamond sing his songs, I say this because he is one of my favorites to listen to. Hope you enjoyed your playlist. Happy Hours are always a good thing.
