Last night I was down at the CHUM/Citytv building at the corner of Queen and John Streets in Toronto. I had the opportunity to take a tour and saw not only the studio where Lightfoot had his 1999 Intimate and Interactive show taped, but also a huge poster of him receiving a certificate for "Gordon Lightfoot Day" in 1977 from the then CHUM president. The poster is on display near the MuchMoreMusic studio on the 4th floor I believe. Very cool.

Char, since I'll be packing up the computer in a few hours and probably won't get it set up in the new place until Sunday, I want to wish you a very Happy Birthday now, while I have the chance.

Jeez, how'd you get Gord to give you a concert for your birthday??? What a special gift that will be!

Have a fun day and give Dan a hug for me (am I remembering correctly that he and Nanci going with you?)

Isn't it exciting!?!?! - A Lightfoot concert just for me! and all of those people coming too!
lol
It can't beat the Delta party you threw for me tho! or that cake!
I'll be thinking of all of you on Sunday....when I'm not hugging Danno and maybe even the man himself!
lol
I'm even taking Monday off-at my age it takes longer to recover from these big events! Dan and Nanci are staying overnight at my place and heading home on Monday. Yay - a sleepover for my 50th !!!

I hope your move goes smoothly and I want to see pics of all of your stuff in place when you're settled. don't work too hard!
Char
old fart (on sunday)
