A good night

We stayed up past our bedtime tonight. Jilda found tickets to a show in Florence and some of the people who wrote songs and played on the soundtracks of our youths were there.

The picture below is of Don Penn and Spooner Oldham. They wrote, "I'm Your Puppet". James and Bobby Purify had a hit with it, but Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye, and others recorded it.

Don and Spooner also wrote Cry Like a Baby, Do Right Woman, Sweet Inspiration and too many others to name.

Christine Ohlman from Saturday Night Live was there. The list goes on.

It was pure joy sitting there tonight and listening to the stories behind the songs.


  1. Well worth staying up later than usual.

  2. Man, that must be a real kick!
    Good on y'all
    Sherry & jack

  3. Concerts with so many talented people are so enjoyable. I'm g;lad you both had a great time.

  4. Seeing such music and performers must have been a goose bump event!
