Cracklin' Rosie

To those of you Neil Diamond fans out there, let it be known that today is a day for pause. Because on this day in 1970 - Neil Diamond received a nice package: a gold record for the hit, "Cracklin’ Rosie". I have to say my dad hooked me. He used to paint and build to Neil Diamond. Any time he found himself working around the house, our 8-track was crankin' something Johnny Cash, Elvis or Neil Diamond, among others. I liked to hear him sing Cracklin' Rosie. I'd love to have him call me up and sing it for me today.

Would you like Neil Diamond to sing it to you or your dad?

Just need a little clarification.

Jenny. Back off my boyfriend! If he calls to sing to you, I'll be jealous and probably not be your friend anymore ;)
No really, I'm with you, I love love his music!
Thanks for the tribute to my friend Neil!

"Sweet Caroline, do, do, do..." can be heard around my house all.the.time! My kids love that song. Neil is great...
Did your Dad call you and sing for you?

Jenny said...

Oh Tom, since neither one has called me so far, why don't you call me up and break out into song? And Ms. LL, I do know that you LOVE Mr. Diamond. I will be no threat to your unique relationship, I promise. I highly LIKE him. So far, no crooning.

For Brooklynn's 3rd birthday we bought her a Neil Diamond concert DVD, she would watch it everynight and sing along!!!
I truly share your spirit!
