Glen Campbell may be wrapping up a goodbye tour but that does not mean he is done with the stage.

Campbell is considering scheduling more shows next year after playing more than 120 dates in 2012.

The 76-year-old singer has Alzheimer's disease and has begun to lose his memory.

He put out his final studio album, Ghost on the Canvas, in 2011 and embarked on the tour with family members and close friends serving in his band and staffing the tour.

Campbell will break for the holidays and if he still feels strong he will begin scheduling more shows.

Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
