Thank you Joey,
I will certainly look into them, asap. Actually, when I was younger, music was like the very center of my universe with everything else revolving around it, but I got away from it for a while. Hardly listened to anything the last few years. I started to think I was going to wind up like my father, who really disliked music, if you can believe. And he had a daughter whose very life revolved around it! I even played piano and organ for church and keyboards for a *really* local band.
Here is another one of my favorite performances on You Tube. An Antonio Carols Jobim tune by Jazz diva, Carmen McRae
If you notice, all my selections are old. I've been like that ever since I was a kid. When I was 2 years old, I went around singing 30's songs, which remain favorites of mine to this day decades later. (a few decades before I was born). I helped move my aunt across country from LA to Indy, and whenever we found a radio station with *really* old oldies on it, she was astonished that I knew the lyrics to *really* old, obscure songs that were popular long before I was ever born. I don't know how I know them, but I do.
I'd probably love your restaurant. The Silverton to Durango train trip is on my bucket list. If I ever get there, I'll look it up!
I'm closer to Petals and I do get up to Ontario every so often. I need to look up her restaurant too.
