Funny how life works out

A distant lover (more than a decade ago and 600 miles away) does indeed have the son he always wanted, which is nice and I'm happy for him.

How did I learn this? I got an email about all the messages in my Linked In mailbox so I went to check it out and on the right hand side was a list -- "People Who Looked at Your Profile Also Looked at ..." There was his name. So I clicked on him and found that his interests are flyfishing and aviation. He's getting his pilot license because his son is interested in planes.

If we were together, he might not have gotten the son he wanted so badly and he CERTAINLY wouldn't be getting a pilot's license! So it all works out for the best.

Top 5 on Friday Music Meme

Top 5 artists/bands you'd like to see in concert but never have. (they have to be still around too...)

1) Bob Dylan. Because he's Bob Dylan.

2) Streisand. I want to see the world-champion, 14K diva live in concert … the one who, at age 67, recently outsold both Madonna and Mariah Carey.

3) Amy Winehouse. I love Back to Black and Frank and wonder what else/how much more she can do, and whether she can keep it together to do it.

4) Marcia Ball (right). My new artist discovery of 2009, even though she's been recording since the 1980s. I love her bluesy voice and her rocking piano, and bet she's a riot in concert.

5) John Mayer. I love how he bounces from soulful troubadour to guitar god and back.
