MrsBlue and I kicked off our weekend anniversary celebration by going to see a Nick Lowe concert last night, and as usual he didn't disappoint, showing his 63 years have done little or nothing to his guitar playing, his voice, or his ability to connect with the audience. He'll always be a favorite of ours, and we can only hope we'll get to continue seeing his shows well into his 70s, which would likely have us outlive a good portion of our fellow audience members, as we were once again among the youngest people in attendance. :)
