Gordie used to live in the basement of the house next door to me when I had a house in Orillia on Lake Couchiching, he was shacked up with the daughter of a Hollywood movie producer. He had to hit the road on short notice so maybe that's where this song came from.

there's GL & N.Young, both great Canadian singer, songwriters. hard to pick one over the other. although, i suppose if i had to i'd pick GL as the best songwriter. but hard to argue with the success that NY has had. probably the better known of the 2 in the US & globally.


Cool connection!πŸ‘

Years later I managed to wrangle some tickets to his Birthday Concert at Massey Hall in Toronto, it's a private friends and family concert and we wound up sitting with his mom and his sister, front row center. He really is a Canadian icon.

@Surfpirate Way cool. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ And it’s interesting you mention sitting with his mother. We share a rare experience.. hanging with the mother of a famous Canadian icon.

In the mid 80’s I was doing some reno work for Margaret Atwood and one day I found myself at her parents house to do a small job.

I had tea and a great conversation with her mother at her kitchen table in the sun. I got a real sense of the kind of upbringing Ms. Atwood had. One of those..”wish I had a voice recorder in my pocket β€œ sort of moments. Lol

@Davekp it's funny how we can suddenly wind up with famous people out of the blue, just the same as the rest of us for the most part, they put on their pants one leg at a time.

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.

Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.
