35 Years Ago Today…

Back in the 70's, I had a job but saved everything I earned as a 14 year old cook at the A&W. I bought a few albums, though, but only after careful deliberation. Then I played them to death. Gordon Lightfoot's "Gord's Gold" had the Edmund Fitzgerald song, which was my very favorite.

A few weeks ago, the winds blew so hard, the meterologists kept saying that the last time the wind was this bad was 35 years ago when the Edmund Fitzgerald went down.

Now, I live here, and when I see those ships on the Great Lakes, I think of this song.

35 Years Ago Today…
