Mellencamp/Dylan and Family
After reading Iris and Amyâ€™s blogs on the John Mellencamp/Bob Dylan show, I have to say Iâ€™m really envious.
My folks came to visit on Thursday and stayed thru Saturday and I missed the show. It was one show I was looking forward to. They were planning on visiting the previous week, but plans don't always work out they way you want.
Iâ€™ve seen Bob Dylan several times and heâ€™s one of those guys that Forrest Gump would say was â€ślike a box of chocolatesâ€ť, you never know what youâ€™re going to get!
But Mellencamp is special. The last time he was in Portland was 1987 and it was a great show. Iâ€™m really sorry I missed him.
But, I was really happy my folks came to visit. They hadnâ€™t been here in five years, and thatâ€™s a long time. And my boys were happy to see their grandparents.
We visited the Washington Park Rose Garden (Iâ€™d forgotten just how beautiful that place is) and toured the Pittock Mansion. Had breakfast at Fat City, took in the Portland Farmers Market and the Saturday Market and spent a large part of the time catching up and telling stories, a great time had by all!
Living in Portland, I think a lot of us take the beauty of our city for grantedâ€¦and Portland is a Beautiful City!
Rock and Roll is forever, time spent with loved ones is so fleetingâ€¦..
