Tom Jones – 1998

Back in 1998 I was lucky enough to see Tom Jones in a smaller venue, The Vic Theatre in Chicago, IL.

I always enjoyed those shows with the mix of older fans and their youngin’s with them.

Pumpkin Lunch

When we lived in a house we would put pumpkins out for Halloween. We never decorated them, but kind of used them to get in the spirit of Autumn.

The decorating, however, ended up being taken care of by one of our local squirrels. We were always amazed at her, or his, handiwork!

Jackie Vee and Paul Presto – 1996

Back in my younger days there were trips to the Jersey Shore, Long Beach Island as it would be.

While there were many places to have a good time, there wasn’t much better than catching Jackie Vee and Paul Presto entertaining the bar crowd at Crane’s Surf City Hotel.

One of the highlights? Jackie Vee’s ability to play multiple saxophones at the same time.

In the end both Yoda and Darth decided to just float along on their merry wind current.

John Fogerty – 1998

John Fogerty is one of those artists who you don’t always remember his songs until the opening rift. Then you sing your ass off. He also rocks in concert.
