November 27, 2015 Musical "Beautiful"

Today, some family members went shopping, but not like we used to.  About 11:00, 7 of us went downtown for lunch at the Rock Bottom Brewery.  Then we walked to the Orpheum theater to see the musical “Beautiful” about Carole King.  Don, Linda, Bev, Barb, Janice, Jim and I attended.  It was great and I would recommend it to anyone.  Carole King started writing music in the 60’s.  The time frame of this musical covered her life from high school until she moved to California and produced her Tapestry album.  Tapestry was the first album I bought with my own money.  So Carole King has a special place in my hear.

Tonight, Jerry made a spaghetti dinner for 20 people.  Another relative of ours was in Mpls for the weekend.  Tom and Sharon Zeller (our first cousins), were visiting their son, Nate and Trisha, Rachel and Madeline who live in Shakopee, MN.  They were able to join us for dinner.  The 4 kids age 11-8 all had fun together, even thought they have only met once before.  It was nice to visit with all of them. 

Again, the siblings visited until about midnight.  I really enjoyed my family time.
