Willie Nelson at the NYCB Theater at Westbury...

...was excellent tonight. Willie is 80 and still jamming and still crooning like he was a man half his age. The guy who sat next to me was rapt in the songs and sang along with Willie on a lot of them and even though he is only 23 years old he knew at least half of them. That made me feel FANTASTIC because that guy was my son Brendan. Great concert and great company. There was one huge downside to this concert and that was it only ran for about an hour and a half. I last saw Willie in concert in NYC in May of 2010 and I sure could have used a longer fix of him tonight. Still though he was excellent.

All the best,

A Wedding Day With Lots Of Rain Promised

Looks like it is going to be a lousy weekend weather-wise. I don't mind all that much about rain on most days, in fact I welcome it as it keeps the trees, vegetable garden, flowers, and lawn watered. Thing is - it may dampen some plans for tomorrow that my daughter and soon to be son-in-law had made for tomorrow on the beach. Their plan was to be married on the beach and then move inside for the reception - yes those wedding bells will be ringing tomorrow for Celina and Phil.

It appears as if they will have to adapt their plans with one change in that, if it rains tomorrow, both the actual wedding and the reception will likely have to take place inside. I suppose it is a good life's lesson about marriage and its ups and downs and about it requiring the married couple to be adaptable. Marriage sure requires a lot of ability to adapt to changes, some small and some big ones, in order to last. 

Oh well, while I am hopeful the sun will show itself and stay out long enough for the wedding, I have heard it said that rain on your wedding day is a sign of a happy and fortuitous marriage. If that truly be the case, and if the clouds refuse to allow the sun to shine down upon them, then let it pour.

All the best,
Glenn B
