  1. Fabulous list Karla wonderful” listening 👌🙏Simon suggests Ventura Highway (America) and I’d go for Elbow one day like this or George Ezra Shotgun as he’s my Daniel’s mate! Hugs and love Helen


    1. Thank you, dear Helen. It’s always a mishmash how these come together from friends. A surprise to me when I build the post. I’ll make a note to add Ventura Highway. Great tune, great band. I got to see them in concert back in the day. They had a string of great tunes, then poof, gone. Will add Elbow too–new to me!!!!! Will catch up later. I saw your email. A bit crazed trying to get ready! Karla


  2. Great song suggestions- thanks. Brings back years of memories (mostly positive). One other suggestion would be to take an ocean 🚢 cruise……..See you soon. As an aside we’re seeing Gordon Lightfoot at UPAC in Kingston when we get back from The Queen…….. again, thanks and see you in The Golden Lion…… 👍🙏

  3. Oh my! Thank you! Glad you enjoyed. What fun to see Gordon L. I’d love to to. I’ll have to build a playlist while I’m on the Queen!!! Whatever I hear, whenever! Great idea. See you soon!!! IF I can get through all the hurdles. Cunard isn’t making it easy.
