well All Right how about something rather different??
Congratulations on a most interesting and challenging topic SM.I immediately thought of a number of favo(u)rite puzzle pics from the most wonderful wedding present we could have hoped to receive back in 2000.
A few here will have heard and even seen the "Lightfoot Quilt" made for us by a team of friends and fellow fans (many from the chat room) that was presented to us in Gord's presence backstage after his August 4th 2000 concert in Norwalk CT. This quilt was made from 40 quilt squares in an assembly some 9 feet by 7 feet where each square was the contributor's interpretation of a Gord song title or content. the one that had most of us guessing the longest was
by "trail" (Neil Robideaux of New Hampshire). I will show it below but I must of necessity and to be fair to all of those who have not seen it either at Norwalk or in May 2001 at either the "Charbeque or backstage at Massey Hall declare that the following are therefore ineligible to guess
Chief Quilter and general dogsbody Jenney her capable assistant sundown17/Diane, and theb following contributors (who all saw pix of every square at the time) silverheels/Bruna,
sundreme/Erica,dot/Dorothea Kemp, jj/Jimmy Jones and Janice and any others from the Newsgroup who may be interloping here

I have some marvellous video footage showing Gord examining the whole quilt with glee as he identified each of his songs
You can just about hear him correctly saying the title of the song represented by the square above

1. Congratulations are in order to the Multi-colo(u)red horse ror succeeding in displaying a picture here 10/10 for that. but no points for not realising that her selected pic comes from an English site and
as its URL reveals is a pic of Yarmouth and presumably the remains of its castle.You should have been more subtle Violet and followed Laurel's perfected practice of saving the pic and uploading it to Sidney's Gord Home Page then creating a "notlong" replacement address as a disguise.
Constructive criticism OK??
Never Mind he/she who hesitates is lost eh??

Hey SM since your pic's URL is:-http://www.i17wideningstudy.com/asse...TI-Cropped.jpg
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to hazard an inspired guess.
So tada tada I'll go for Carefree Highway!!
SM Now howsabout you guessing my puzzle pic of the quilt square??
and Walter if you ain't got a new camera yet and want to emulate my "under the CFH sign" pic you had better do so PDQ as it looks like they might be planning to widen Interstate 17 and incorporate a flyover etc at that very place then what sort of sign wiil you be able to pose under???
Just tryin' to help
Same applies to our Laurel and others with that ambition!!!

Yes John it's the famous Carefree Highway. I will guess "Too Late For Prayin'" for the quilt.
Here is #14

I'm with Joveski on this one.

for the quilt, I'm guessing Something Very Special, since it's the only one I know of with a rosary in it.

this may be a out-to-lunch guess, but is it Don Quixote?

so I take it this picture represents the whole song, not just the title? have the rules changed then?

could be The Mountains and Marian, but that's an awfully manly Marian...hmmm.
good one. I have to think...

Yes LSH it is Maryann. She is a bit on the "manly" side!
Here is #16

Okay,I know I've got this one..."Big Blue"!

I still don't know about that "Mountains and MaryAnn" answer though. I think mine made more sense but hey...that's just me!
