Hi Steve, That is good you got to know so much about your paternal great-grandfather. My paternal great-grandmother was also a school teacher. It was a one or two room schoolhouse where she taught all the grades, up until she got married. My dad was a construction worker but in the winters he drove an oil truck or semi. He was also the best harmonica player in the world, and played with some bands when he was 'older'. He passed away from a lung tumor when he was only 62. I remember how he would also characteristically pause - for up to a minutewhen someone would ask him an important question. I had to be respectful and patient many times. I remember one time a 'friend' of mine challenged him to a game or pool. (btw, he didn't drink, but he did smoke). She racked 'm up, and he called which pocket the 8-Ball would go in on the break. Then that's exactly what happened. That's the only time I ever saw him play pool.

...So, what did you find in the trunk from the basement?

That's good you had such a good marriage. Merry sounds like an exceptionally nice person.

LOL Hi Lynn - i was surprised - I thought this one would go first. I know why noe - jj did not play this round - and he had a burned CD of just the 18 rarities et al from Songbook. And he always got those thats why. Anyhoo - I actually do love that song, unusual in a great way for Gordo, its in my favourite 'hit repeat' 10 for sure.

Well you have the distinction of:

Q356 .... shipwrecked .... = 'Always On The Bright Side' ? - YES ! You polished off the last of the ten.

Congrats to 4Lane-Lynn thats a tongue twister say it ten times lol

I'll post 'er in the 'Case of the greenbox and the hidden key' - X-FILES lol- Everyone'll be wondering what in the He77 I am writing about - I assure you - there is a reason. It'll come out in her memoirs, or unofficial bio - 4LaneLynn P.I. ! lol sorry Lynn had to have some fun on a Saturday night !

Something occurred to me just now, after I posted the above, updated the x-files, and thought....rare moment I know... When I say in the Header of the X-files - All songs from the main '20'ALBUMS' - NOT SO.
Songbook is not of the 'main 20' - in the time period - yes, strictly speaking, no. I shall make that as clear as PPI Float-Glass from now.

Thanks for the reply in that one, Patti. What a 'first - and only ?? Pool-shot - 8-ball in the corner on the break ? Wow ! . I wish I could hear your grandfather playing the 'harpoon' as Kris K called it 'from my dirty red bandanna' in Gord's first recording of - you know - Me and Bobby McGee - type playing ?

Yes, Merry was a wonderful woman - and staggeringly beautiful. What she saw in me I'll never know. She was sadly overtaken by illness(es) that took her spark away later in life, and even knowing at times who or where she was, so sad,. I'll not go on that way now. I'll allways cherish the memories of the golden Years - and later I know will see the wonderful strength of the 'Hospital House Years' we called 'em later. Enough of that part for me now- and everone else lol. More in PM any time you like. Thank you so much Patti - and I'll pick up on any detail I missed in PM's. Thank you..

...I know I am looking back at her with the benfit of both 20-20 hind sight - and rose-colored indeed. She was human, as was I - but our first 16 years or so were absolutely..a pciture of happiness and warmth. Well I call those 'The Golden Years' - as above. - Mamie was cute as the little doll she had -THAT LOOKED JUST LIKE HER AND SAME SIZE ! - You should see the photo, 'sitting' side-by-side with the doll, and same 'knit hat' - just like 'daddy' before going out into the wild woods for winter work - you know how kids as toddlers expecially copy both their parents intermittently ? Well all three of us - in our first (and "best") home - owned before us by a Grandmother widow, and it allways felt like a 'grandma's house' - in the best of senses. Warm, love-filled feeling. Oddly - our next house - as I moved up the ladder in my career -was huge by comparison, I had it built with some features Merry allways wanted - glass-blocks, etc. I it was a beautiful house, but I am quite sure the reason it did not compare with our first was that was where we had 'Hospital House' . Well, in all truthfullness - the following 12 years were frought with a brave stand against the worst combination of illnesses, operations, acccidents, etc etc, and I'll never know how we got throught it... well, yes... I do.... Anyway Patti- I'd be happy to tell you more detail in a PM. The players can get a bit ancy - a 'new ten' is due now . and I lose 'em if I blabberty too much, some of 'em anyway - some of the best ! So I dare not lose 'em ! Please send me a reminder PM, and I'll tell you a an 'old Grandpa's' tale of intrigue from the 'CHEST' ???? !!!! -

Thank You Patti - for some of the kindest posts I have recieved in here. I must to some extent minimize -MY BLABBER MOUTH - not your - don't ever hesitate to post, please, just know I might respond in PM to keep my eye on the ball !

formerlylavender once again comes up with an even better than intended song which was - ''Does You Mother Know'.

formerlylavender submits, an even beter case with:

Q373 - ... west ... Seven Island Suite

Her lyrics submitted that work very well from Seven Islands Suite

"Seven islands to the high side of the bay if you're looking west"

I add just the next line to hers since we all love the song so much it seems:

Seven islands to the high side of the bay if you're looking west
To the sunset you can see it, all in fiery autumn dress

It seems - ONLY Lightfoot can convey the entire image, feel, sights, sounds, fragrance of Autumn, feel of the leaves crunching underfoot, etc. - an entire Autumn sunset painting given life and legs by The Man, with blazing beautful leaves quite that way - unbelievable, yes- genius, but more than sheer intellect - the gift of song writing which knows no intellect as a pre-requisite - but Lightfoot's particular brand of genius has been observed many times in corfid - his powerful command of the English language as we've commented here and there, he has to be a well-read man, quietly, w/o public self-congratulation. Here anyway-

As all true genius IMO - needs no expression thereof, the proof is inthe results. That, with what, as an American, I can only assume is a Canadian's closer tie to the Queen's English - which I'll vouch first I believe - we are much farther from (as in American English is farther from) - The language from England, vis by the language in America - with back-formations, myriad various debaucheries, from mis-spelled contractions or statements often heard from Queen's English - such as: 'why that's Bloody good' has been theorized by English specialists as having come from (bloody) - a contraction of 'By our Lady'.

- say it fast, and one can imagine the 'bloody' adjective we associate with "English from England's" origins - any British in the viewing audience care to comment or correct - please do so, quite welcome ! Our various colloquial and even smaller subsets of small regions - even neighborhood coloquialisms, from which we have established regional dialect bearing little in common I'm sure with the Queen's English... please comment any British folk or etylmologists in the readership - the views in this thread are over 13,000 (as opposed to posts now just over 1,000 )suggest greater than than ten-to-one interraction in the thread as being non-participatory viewers - which are very, very welcome, in all ways -any British among you wish to comment on American English debauchery of The Queen's ? either 'viewers only' or players are welcome to comment on this above American's belief in variations from the original Queen's English we have in various forms around the country - indeed around the block in the case of enclaves all comments are welcome - and what of corblimey ? I can look it up on various websites, but a British person's take is far more of interest. OK then- moving on to the next post -

Thank you so much for playing again f. Lavender ...

I'll post it in the X-files,corblimey !

Flyin' Blind
Hi Jenney good to see you back in - are you packin' a six-shooter today ? For other player's benefit - I am referring to Jenney's bar-setting record (I think) of 6 SONGS IN ONE SET !. We should not put pressure on her for a repeat performnce, genius does not requently come out upon demand ! So, perhaps just as the groundhog went back in his home after lookin around and sniffin' the air in Punxatawney (sp?), Jenney may not chose to unload all her rounds, brass dropping on the floor like rain, and lead flyin. on target (lead as in a pencil lol) !

OK 'tseeer:

Q366 .... advice
Understand and take my advice
'Flyin' Blind'

Does Q366 .... advice = 'Flyin' Blind'?

You bet it does - congrats Jeney with a winning ambig - FYI the intended songs ( no matter) was 'Knotty Pine'. I'll post your x-file

Hey ronster, I like your new "game/fill-in-the-blank at least ": Given the movie name = what GL song (of many, & no wrong answer) as I understand it so far.
You all ought a give it a visit - I think he has a fun idea going from the top 100 movies to tap - 11 at a time - its fun !

OK BIZ:

Does Q371 .... earth .... = Waiting For You ? - It does for a fact , a totally valid ambig. - FYI the intended was The Last Time Ever I Saw Your Face. Congrats Ron

lyrics patch (mine here was more than the 'hoped for' which Ron nailed) actually - no lyrics are required anymore, but player's helpful inclusion still come with. Anyway:

What would we do at the end of the day
When the hours are asleep and the time slips away
Children are all that the earth has to show
Children are all that the earth wants to know
Up here in the northland, up here in the snow
---------------------------------------------------------------------
I included this shortcut as a courtesy to Ron, to get you into his thread on movie names correspond to What? GL Song. Very Cool. It opens a new window, so if you have strong pop-up avoidance settings, it might not work, but I've not encountered that. You can of course enter through normal means under gen disc., and skip the 2nd window.

Shortcut to Ron's cool new thread: (opens a new window):

---------GOT AN IDEA TO REMOVE/MOVE LONGER, NON-GAME ORIENTED POSTS

HOW 'BOUT NO MORE NON-GAME LONG POSTS ?

- I have an idea below I'll post 1-3 times max in here - the paragraph below. I figure it will open up clear gaming space currently obscured by (me) in otherwise very enjoyable long posts - nostalgia etc.

----------NEW THREAD NOTICE NEW THREAD NOTICE




New idea - plan on less long-winded blabberty posts of mine in herre ! I'm not stopping them, I'm MOVING THEM ! I'm starting a new thread in small talk called 'Corfid.cafe' ! We can blabberty-away, and continue our nostalgia talks; we currently have several ones open One- Patti and Lynn is the 'treasure chest and my Dad's locked desk drawer!), T.B.C. - in there! PLEASE JOIN ME IN THERE ! The only rule(s) - would be the fundamental rules as nice people we'd follow anyway - the basic forum behavioural stds. set forth by Char and Florian - and we'll go from there, with Char adding considerations not expressed yet, in there. Good people, Good talk = Good thread, Boy do I NEED IT !
AND - IT WILL FREE-UP HERETOFORE SPACE OBSCURED BY.... ME LOL GAMING SPACE - I'm fixin' it

Please do join me in there, when you or I want to tell tales/family stories etc, of a longer nature, *not lyrics game related*, or thoughtfully answer a non-private, non PM-oriented post. Those, I'll put in PM. How 'bout it ? No theme !
I surely do not intend to snag conversations from their proper theme threads at all. This will be meant to be an open-format - nothing within overall corfid rules of decency etc. will be out of line ! Talkety-blabberty for me, I'm sure lol
