Re: 2012 Leonard Cohen Event

FYI: The only city in Illinois that's on the list is Rockford, Illinois, which is almost 90 miles and almost 2 hrs away from Chicago, and it's #9 out of 10. On the other hand, #1 is Flint, where I was born and raised and where my mother still lives [on the outskirt area]; however, when I went to vi...

Re: The Event Dates confirmed: August 2-5, 2012

It's easy to read and appreciate all the warm fuzzies about any city found in travel guides like Fodor's (here they all are: http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/illinois/chicago/feature_30001.html), but it's important not to go thinking only romantic thoughts about "the big city" like I di...

Re: The Event Dates confirmed: August 2-5, 2012

I have to disagree strongly with Misty Marie. Anne & I have spent many weekends in Chicago and felt very safe. Our daughter Katie and her husband along with their little baby travel to downtown Chicago on a regular basis with no fear. They live in the Chicago area. Obviously there is always a need ...

Re: 2012 Leonard Cohen Event

Looking forward to seeing you there Grace! :) Same here, Sam and Avi! I had such casual contact with so many in Las Vegas, it will be nice to have some actual sitting down and getting-to-know-you time in Madison. Crossing our fingers for more than a year will hinder circulation, I know :lol:, but l...

Re: The Event Dates confirmed: August 2-5, 2012

Misty Marie Should anyone be concerned about this statement and the fact that you are passing on the chance to visit Chicago ! Do you know something about the place the rest of us don't ! Chicago is just like any big city. Growing up I lived 20 miles outside of New York City, and took the bus and s...

Re: The Event Dates confirmed: August 2-5, 2012

These dates are in my diary, also. Jim has friends in Beloit he'd love to see again, and I have relatives outside of Chicago, so this could be a wonderful getaway for us just one week before our wedding anniversary. As far as attending any downtown Chicago events goes, though, I lived 45 miles outsi...

Re: Time to Say Thank You

I need to express a special thanks to Pat (Grannypoe) for accepting packages from me containing the thank you cards for Leonard and the band, as well as other packages containing monkeys, violin soaps and other things before the Las Vegas concerts. She stored them for us until they found their way t...

Re: A thank you to Jarkko and Moderators

Thanks to the members who gave us moderators in Las Vegas a monkey and a violin. Wijbe I'm sure that MaryB (Fred's mom) will be checking into this thread shortly, but on behalf of the rest of us involved in the "monkey business" (and the violins), you're very welcome. It was our privilege to thank ...

Re: AFTER LAS VEGAS - WORDS FOR LEONARD

To Anne ... Do you remember posting this following the 25 May 2008 concert in Newfoundland: "I'm about to try to compose a letter of welcome and thanks to Leonard Cohen for coming here, gracing our air with his song and his presence. I hope I find a way to get it to him. In case I don't, I am sendin...

Re: Time to Say Thank You

Having been in contact daily and nightly with Grace during the preparation time for Leonard's book, I'm especially aware of how many countless hours of labor and deep concern for this project Grace gave, in the interest of Leonard's and the band's receiving flawless and perfect-to-the-detail [detai...

Re: Time to Say Thank You

And again, the beauty of the cards was solely the result of Grace's (Misty Marie) amazing efforts and her attention to every sing...

Re: Time to Say Thank You

I was looking for you so I could meet you in person but somehow it never happened. Take good care and thank you again. Leslie/Mutti ;-) This was a whirlwind trip for Jim and me. Had I known when we booked our reservations and bought our tickets that this project would surface, I would have come in ...
