It is with a broken, sad heart that the news is not a welcome news.

My main man, Neil Diamond has Parkinson disease and stopped touring.

I have been to approximately 40 concert of his and was in the audience for his induction in the SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME, along with Henry Mancini.

We met him twice at concerts and he graduated my Highschool while I was in the service

Our first time staying away from the Camper. House sitting and assisting Cathy's Sister , who is recovering from a mild Stroke and her husband recovering from the first of 2 surgical procedures. Going to be an interesting week.

Hope everyone is doing well. Any word on Wayne's condition?

Enjoy your week, Take care!
