Sweet Caroline

I used to think my mom was the biggest Neil Diamond fan in the WORLD.

She also loved chickadee birds and use to wear a pin that looked so much like this painting.

We had every album, and they were played constantly.

My brothers and I knew every song and could anticipate when the scratch was coming on each record.  We would run over to the stereo to pick up the needle before the skip happened.

My dad would play records REALLY loud on Saturday morning to wake us up to do chores.  It was usually a Neil Diamond song.

We would take our yearly trip to Maine,

and record the albums to play in the car on the ride. 

I can still hear her say, “TURN IT UP!!”  The music was never loud enough for her!  She would sing this song louder than anyone else – way before it was a popular song at weddings and football games.

She was a TRUE trailblazer when it came to music.

“Sweet Caroline

Good times never seemed so good”

Every time I hear this song, I can still hear her singing along ☺
