Today I'm off to Orlando. Got up at 3:45 a.m. to catch a 6:30 flight out of San Francisco. I'll blog from the retreat/convention as I can.
Tuesday night I got to rock out at a concert of one of my favorite bands from the 70s--Boston. I laid out the money for seats in the 3rd row, dead center. We were 10 feet from the stage. Awesome! My husband ended up having to travel for business that night, so I took my local author friend Dineen Miller along.
Sadly, two years ago the lead singer of Boston, Brad Delp, committed suicide. The band found their new lead singer through a MySpace page. Who's the new lucky guy? Tommy DeCarlo, an employee at Home Depot, who's always loved Boston. He sounds a lot like Delp, who had quite a vocal range. But DeCarlo kinda looks like a Home Depot guy. :) Definitely not the rocker image.
