Up on the Roof

By now if you've been reading my blog you know a few things about me. The most obvious being, aside from loving my husband and family, I love all things Disney and I love Neil Diamond!

Surprise! Not a Disney blog!!!!

Several years back, Neil did a version of 'Up on the Roof'. Sorry, I'm not going to google and tell you who did it originally. I took a liking to the song even though it was one he hadn't written.

One night while out in the shop working on the airplane Kevin calls into me and asks if I can come out to help him! I said, yeah, in a minute, I was putting the baby down to bed!

When I get out to the shop, he asks me to come out over to the garage. When I walk outside, the ladder is out, and he gets on it and leans over to take my hand! I look quizzically at him and he says come on up!

When we reach the top, we step over a few feet, and there, "Up on the Roof" is a blanket, wine & glasses, and his boom box which he starts with the CD playing the song!

Kevin says the stars were so pretty that he thought we should look at them!

What I didn't know, was how long he'd been planning this, waiting for perfect weather - clear of clouds, warm enough temps, and a bright moon all when he was home!

See, you don't have to spend a ton of money for a little romance and good music!
