Tuesday evening Dennis and I had a fun night out. We had a quick Mexican dinner at Los Agaves on Milpas St. and then got to spend several hours at the Santa Barbara County Bowl with lots of other folks our age (and younger) enjoying the music of James Taylor and Carole King. They played and sang together, did their own hits, danced, jumped and rocked the night away. So fun to see performers my age still having fun and dancing like kids. Joining King and Taylor on the tour are their original bandmates guitarist Danny Kortchmar, drummer Russ Kunkel and bassist Lee Sklar. Back up singers included Arnold McCuller, Kate Markowitz, and Andrea Zonn.
The program called this a "once in a lifetime event" marking a rare concert experience bringing two of the most beloved singer-songwriters on tour together for the first time in four decades.
I am still savoring all the good music and joyous energy of this special show.
I think this is Carole singing "Natural Woman"....she looked great and danced in high heels!
Just had to show you our midnight visitor! This little raccoon likes to come in the kitty door and sample the cat food. If I don't the get the kitty door closed he will come and make a big mess.
I think I will put a raccoon on my rug hooking list to go along with the owls, squirrels and rabbits.
And back to rug hooking.....here is the back of the hooked heart-stuffed and sewn up.
Next I cut out a smaller heart shape to cover the stitching.
And here it is stitched on. The front needs a little more embellishing so I'm not quite done with this project yet.
