Almost forgot you guys are meeting up. Dancing Dave told me about the planned meet-up in January but this..... On a cruise, dancing, drinking, rockin' to the blues! Eeeeeeeekkkkkk...... You guys are having too much fun without us! I don't know much about blues' music but i do love to dance like Dave and Denise ---- uh, ok, you too Dangerous Dave ---- and i can imagine what fun you guys had. How mah'velous! Keep rockin'

Enjoing....da....blues
It was a wild, wild, week with our friends the dancing ones! So much fun we can barely describe it. Action back and very little sleep. Wish you could have been there. We danced and danced. Fine food, music and friendship. It was grand.

" There's not even an alley to hang out in"
Those were words my kids said when growing up in Colrain, MA ( pop.1,500 or so). To them the 'big town' was Shelburne Falls ( pop. 1,850 or so). Sh. Falls has been used as a back drop to several movies- 'Labor Day' with Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin ( a dud of a film), and 'The Judge' with Robert Downey, Jr., and Robert Duval. It showed off the town and the surrounding countryside beautifully- even used the road that went right by my kids' school. I grew up in Boston and now lie in a big city but I loved living in a small town. I miss the hill of Western MA and the wonderful community of strong self reliant men and women. Thanks for giving small towns a shout out. Carolyn

Small towns
Good hearing from you Carolyn. Smalls towns have a great deal to offer for the right people. I'm more of a city girl who likes to visit them at festive times of the year. Thanks for reading along.

long live small towns
I agree - its a shame if visitors to US don't get any further than Vegas or Orlando - we loved all the little towns in New England and when I do my house swapping I get to go to places the "normal" tourist doesn't go. Time to plan for 2015 . Where we will be I wonder. XX Lynne

Cat Stevens
Wow - you were lucky to get the tickets. Brings back many memories of life when he was Cat Stevens and we were young singing along to his songs. . What a fantastic opportunity to fulfil one of your dreams. Mine to have seen Queen they must have been epic in concert. Sadly not to be .

Cat Stevens
Queen would have been great. Life is full of opportunity.
24th December 2014

I'm one of those.....
..... who never went past New York, DC, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Boston. Oh wait, i did like Pensacola in Florida! And the 10 hr train ride from DC to Charlotte. I shd be getting that list from you too!

Lovely small, old Newtown!
I'm with you two--I love small towns. The people are often so friendly--smiles and hellos, as you encounter each other on the streets, and they take pride in their town, with the historic markers that you mention. Not only that, you can often walk to the edge of town and be on an earthen trail which I love. How lucky that Dave got to work/live in such a sweet space. You two have carved out a great way to live, get around and see the world!

Old Newtown
I'm certain you'd love this burg. It is cute. Plenty of great walks nearby. Yes we have been able to use our jobs and to move around the country. We are fortunate.
23rd December 2014

so right! lol!
The only places I can think of when planning a trip to the US are New York, LA and Vegas baby! (Vegas always precedes baby wherever you're from). I'll be in the US Spring next year. I will start in Vancouver and make my way down to San Diego, California. Thanks for mentioning Sequim and LaConner. I'll include them in my itinerary :)
24th December 2014

Small towns
In a couple of weeks I'll send you a list of other stops along the way for you. Vancouver to San Diego is a wonderful drive.

Destiny
What an amazing experience to just fall into your laps, not just any old experience either but something you really wanted to be able to enjoy one day. It could so easily not have happened but it was obviously destined that you should be there. Glad you enjoyed it and that you were able to share this inspiring report as a result.

Destiny
We do believe you end up where you need to be. Thanks for reading and sending your kind words. It was a fantastic night.
