I'm not sure where the appropriate place is to post this ... or even if there is one. Most of you who are active on the User Showcase forum are aware of Di's quickly failing health. She hardly ever sings anymore because she is too weak.

Here are a couple of videos of Di and me having a great time with a little online karaoke. This was before she became so ill. She's now a faint shadow of what you see here. But, these were some great times for us. We did this a couple of nights a week ... not always on cam, but at least singing and having fun.

I hope you don't mind me posting this bit of recent nostalgia ... it's such a sweet reminder of when Di was relatively healthy. Now, she can barely walk from the bedroom to the kitchen. Sometimes it makes me just cry ... but these videos always cheer me up. Thanks for indulging me.

And here's one with Di doing some marvelous vocals - to have a voice like that!

Don'tcha think she looks pretty danged good for 65 years old at the time??!! I was only 64 ... what a cougar she is! And I know this isn't original music created on BIAB, but they're special to me. I'll pull this down if anyone objects.

Yes, good looking indeed and also a great voice. Sense of humor too: "finally came out of the liquor closet huh?" smile
I enjoyed watching. All the best to you two!

Dear Alan, Di has a beautiful voice. I'm very sad to hear her health has been declining. It must be very hard for you to watch. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Samuel,

Thanks a bunch! We hope to do a few more. All total, we have about 125 videos and about a third of them are us being silly. She's a terrific lady with more health issues than al;most any 10 people you can find, combined. Appreciate the nice words!

Alan

lambada,

Thanks so much! I'm biased but I believe she has a wonderful voice. And you are correct - it's very difficult to watch her health decline so quickly and so severely. We aqppreciatre the kind words and prayers very much. Best to you,

ALan

Thank you very much for your kindness. We appreciate that so much. Although I'm a biased husband, I agree she has the voice of an angel. I think there's a vacant seat waiting for her in the Eternal CHoir. God Bless.

I'm very sad to hear that Di's health is declining. You two are so supportive of users here and hey you both have a great sense of humour too. Di's singing is effortless and superb. You both have easy voices to listen to.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

HI David,

Glad you enjoyed them. We do have a lot of fun with our music. As I mentioned, her health precludes her from doing much singing these days. Thanks for the kind words!

Hey Kenny,

We both smiled big-time when we read your comments. And yes, Di is fantastic (pardon the biased opinion). Thanks for the well wishes for her.

You mentioned the harmony., Here's a link too what we think is our best harmony. I'm not a good harminy singer (lead singing, as much!). But this one just fell into place. Thanks again.

Deryk states my sentiments quite well. You and Di were at the top of my list of User Forum artists I watched for posts from the very beginning of my time here on the forum. I watched posts on the forum for 8-9 months before jumping in to comment and really enjoyed how finished your songs were and the professional quality of the writes and production.

Wishing the best for you and Di. Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories with us.

Charlie
