This past Thursday, Bryan Adams was in concert in London at the O2 Arena. Wish I could have been there! Don't you just love a concert where the audience knows all the words and sings along with great joy and enthusiasm?
We were saddened to learn of a death in our family. The husband of Richard's cousin died today. Just one week ago today, he had attended this concert at the O2 Arena. I am certain that one of the voices that you hear singing would have been his. Yes, I am positive of this.
May that great rock and roll band in heaven welcome you with open arms, Graham! I know I should say rest in peace but if you would have known him, you would know that the rock and roll band would be more like him.
How I wish I could discuss with Graham everything I just learned about Bryan Adams! Born in Canada to English parents, he is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer, photographer, philanthropist and activist. In other words, an all around good guy!
Did you know that one of the postage stamps in Canada in 2012 had a fantastic photo of Queen Elizabeth with a wonderful, natural smile? That photo was taken by Bryan Adams! Isn't that something?
(I can't show you the stamp here but if you just type in "Canadian postage stamp from Bryan Adams" into a search engine you will see it!)
Sorry if my thoughts are more scattered than usual...this has been really sad news from England today.
