Great, poignant song based on a true story:
“The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” by Gordon Lightfoot. If you’ve never heard it, just sit back, savor and listen to the lyrics take you to the stormy waves of Lake Superior. Having been to Chicago you know the Great Lakes are mini-oceans.
Love you my MAIN MAN.
So on my way home for lunch today I got revved up by a song that used to open Emerson, Lake & Palmer’s concerts: “Hoedown”; when the last note plays if you aren’t fired up for the rest of the concert you may as well go home. Got me thinking what other opening numbers really stand out? I recalled seeing Grand Funk Railroad on October 28, 1971 at Pershing Auditorium in Lincoln (which BTW I think they recently tore down unless I dreamed it) and they opened with “Footstompin Music”………WOW, again you don’t calm down for days after they open with that.
Speaking of music, my I-Pod won’t synch up with I-tunes (first time I’ve tried since we messed around with it). Unless you can figure something out I may have to “restore I-Pod” (which I assume means erasing it) and then downloading everything all over again. No hurry though, I’m about 800 songs behind updating it so I haven’t felt the need for awhile and can wait (maybe even until you’re here).
Love you and tell Mommy, I mean, Lady Beth, hello.
Holy Toledo-fish. Today we announced to the Facebook, Twitter (etc…) world that we were having a babe.
I have to save this for personal reasons. The chances of this happening again, are slim-to-none. Partially because it was the first game ever played, but also because Pops’ intelligence is unrivaled – most of the time.
