The Answer is Blowing in the Wind...

Those of us who came of age in the sixties heard lots of great music.  As the saying goes: "I may be old, but I got to see all the cool bands."  Well...I didn't actually get to see them all, but I certainly heard them all and I still love the music.

Peter Yarrow, Gail and Christopher Yarrow

One of my all time favorite groups was Peter, Paul and Mary. After they started touring again (and my kids were grown) I made it a goal to see them.  Sadly, Mary died before I could make that happen. Last week, on Friday the 13th, I got to fulfill that least in part.  Peter Yarrow is still touring and came to Wilmington, NC for one performance and I was finally in the right place at the right time.
Peter invited everyone under 60 to join him on stage to sing
Puff the Magic Dragon.  No...we're not up there.

It was awesome! He did many of their old songs as well as some that are uniquely his. He was accompanied on stage by his son, Christopher and the chemistry and love between them was palpable.  The audience was encouraged to sing we all knew the words...and Jack commented that there were very few heads in the audience that weren't gray. I came away with a signed CD, a signed DVD, a photo and a great memory :)

We finished our evening with a late night snack at the Front Street Brewery.  Best Friday the 13th ever!

Before and After....

When we got back to Wilmington we finally got to see Katie without her braces!

No...this is not about RV life on the road, but grandmas are allowed to brag :)

Back in Wilmington...

It's been a while since I've posted on here. I went into hermit mode while we were in Florida...spent a lot of time reading, FaceBooking, watching TV and sitting outside when the weather was nice.

We've been back in Wilmington now for two weeks, at our home base...the KOA.

We had lunch at the Oceanic...first time we've been back there since our wedding.

I've dipped my toes in the Atlantic ocean ...a bit chilly!

We went to see Katie in her school's talent show.

Mostly...we've spent lots of time visiting with Katie, Jackson, Becca and Davis :) ...and there's more to come.
