A cartoonish look at life...
So oddly (not really) enough I found myself up in Oregon’s magnificent Hood River Valley (yes, again!) Just getting some well deserved (in my humble opinion) R and
R with my good buddies Rick and Steve. Steve is a big music lover and concert-goer (I have never seen a more vast and eclectic cd collection!) and he also enjoys surprising his friends when we come up to visit with a little something different in addition to the usual hiking, biking and other outdoor activities. This time his surprise was an evening concert at the Portland Zoo. The opening act was the very talented singer-songwriter-musician Radney Foster. I was unaware (big surprise!) that several of his songs have been covered by some other well known performers, one of them being Keith Urban. Randney was followed the headlining act, Jewel. I don’t think I have ever seen a performer enjoy herself so much. Her interaction with the audience was delightful. It was a pleasure to hear her play as well as tell the stories behind many of the songs she performed....And she’s funny too! (You know how much I like “funny”!) All in all it was another priceless gem of a summer evening in the beautiful Northwest. Thanks, Steve!
