It was quite a challenge focusing on the “Countdown To Love” this year. There have been family losses; and farewells to so many who were part of the soundtrack of our lives.

But, I have to hand it to Greg.  He’s not even much of an RnB fan (he prefers C&W); but, to kick off the Valentine’s Day (and Cupid’s Hunt) weekend after celebrating our 37th anniversary, he whisked us off to spend Friday evening with Boyz II Men.  It was our first live concert since 1979 (!).

The Boyz have grown to men.  The group has suffered a loss as well – Mike McCrary left the group in 2003 due to health issues – but, they are still here, serving up that Motownphilly groove like warm, melted chocolate.  They inspired quite a few of us that night.   (During “Open Arms”, a young man in the front row went down on one knee in front of his lady, ring box in hand; and the Boyz serenaded them.)

Still it was a challenge bringing this one home; until the angel on my shoulder took me to my Motown ‘home’.
