Classical Mystery Tour

"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one." ― John Lennon, Imagine

IT'S RARE FOR Paul not to have a gig on New Year's Eve, but he didn't this year so we were able to celebrate the start of 2013 together by attending the Des Moines Symphony Orchestra's Pop Concert. It was called the Classical Mystery Tour and consisted of four guys who impersonate the Beatles with the orchestra backing them. And a fine job they made of it. 

We enjoyed it much more than either one of us anticipated. My all-time favorite Beatles songs are Let it Be, Hey Jude and Here Comes the Sun. They played all three. Paul (Mr. not Sir) said that it was like getting to hear the Beatles live except with a better drummer.

Below is the upcoming traveling schedule for the Classical Mystery Tour for the next few months. 

BTW: Paul got an iPad from his parents for Christmas. Oh my goodness, he was SO excited; he's been wanting one forever and ever. Thus far he has taken it — and I am not exaggerating — EVERYWHERE with him except to the grocery store. Besides all the other functions he uses it for, he also reads books and listens to podcasts on it — and falls asleep in the process, so like a kid with a favorite new toy, he's even sleeping with it. I told him that if takes to licking or drooling on it (that is after all how our furry kids show intense affection), I'm drawing the line.
