  2. I love this song.

    I was just thinking about James Taylor the other day when I read something about his (& Carly Simon's) son Ben's album - have you ever heard any of Ben's songs? I wonder if he has a similar style.

  3. Alison, I heard a song by Ben a while back, and thought it sounded like his dad. I keep meaning to listen to more.

    Sherri, we celebrated with a friend of ours who is a huge fan. I like him; but only like a few songs. I put them on a cd, and we listened to those six(!) songs while we ate supper.

  8. Bonnie, lucky you!!

    Les, I'm not a giant fan, but I do love a few songs. I bought them at iTunes and put them on a cd calling it: James Taylor - Nan's fave singles:
    Your Smiling Face, Sweet Baby James, Mockingbird (because of fond memories of Margaret and her best friend singing it as girls), Shower the People, You've Got a Friend, and Secret O' Life. So, 3 in common on our lists!

  10. I adore James Taylor. It's weird seeing him age. His voice is better than ever.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
