I'd agree...although there seems to be lots to set off an arguement in the bathing area. Bad aim, neglecting to lower the seat after bad aim, squeezing the toothpaste tube from the middle, leaving hair trimmings, using the man of the house's razor for legs, running the hot water while your mate is showering making it cold....the list goes on and on.
heh heh

Yes, soft furniture all the way...and soft carpet too. FYI: Soft carpet is also excellent for pratfalls as well!

FOOT MASSAGERS!

Oh.

Foot MESSENGERS. It's late, I should be in bed by now. But a nice foot massage would go over well, LOL

Ya know, it must be a guy thing. Pushing people's faces into toilet bowls. Show of hands, how many women here have had that done to them or done it to someone else?

Okay. Now show of hands for the guys.

And can I just say, if my new state of the art low flow toilet is an indication, it's an idea who's day has come and gone. It's hard to drown an ant in that thing let along get someone wet.

Regarding the name... when I asked him about it he said it was Scottish and that at one time his people were foot messengers and that's how the name originated.

I can't imagine that any guy would live long enough to tell the story if they even tried to put my head in a toilet bowl...not even GL. But I think Cathy Smith gave as good as she got. Anyway, I think drink fueled a lot of that.

As far as foot massages...I can't stand for anyone to touch my feet...I'm like djb there!

Yeah, it was part of the charm when I was twenty. Now I just want someone who can read, write full sentances, spell, is gainfully employed, single and a non workaholic. If there's a bad boy out there like that who can give a good foot massage send him my way.

Well, see, to a man, if it's been flushed recently the toilet IS clean. Most of them don't know what a scrub brush is for or that the yellow ring around the bowl isn't supposed to be there. Which brings us to Wanderlust's comment about bad aim. Boys, if ya know ya missed, CLEAN IT UP!

At my last place of employment, there was a wonderful sign behind the toilet. It was in Swedish of course, but it read something like, "Now that you have peed all over the floor, kindly clean it up and flush before you wash your hands."

That would be me, she deserved it and I don't feel one bit bad about it. She got the swirly, my husband got the divorce, before the birth of our son. I really enjoyed the swirly, I think I would get a 10 in water sports on that one.

Moral or the story? Don't screw around with a pregnant woman's husband, and then after you get caught don't run into the bathroom to hide.

ROTFLMAO. Gods no, never mess with a pregnant woman's husband. I give it a 10 just on principle.

Maynard Collins

is generally rated to be more sensationalist and I believe the considered advice is that if you get a copy do not ask Gordon
to autograph it!!
As mentioned above both occasionally appear in ebay auction but of course none at this very moment!!

Soon after this topic appeared I decided to search for a copy of one of the Lightfoot bio's and found a great copy of "If you could read his mind". It was only $22 plus shipping.

After reading the book my admiration for Gord, his music, and his drive to get to where he is, went straight up. Sure, there's some negative stuff in there but who doesn't have a bit of bad history in their past? Besides, all that turmoil made for some great songs.

I'm not sure a new biography about Gord would make the New York Times best seller list here in the States but in Canada, given his sort of recent rebirth, maybe, just maybe folks would be interested. Don't know.

I had no idea he was such a Canadian icon during the 60s, at least that's how Collins paints it. There are a few copies listed out there costing around $45. I also found a few copies of the other bio by Gabiou but it's way to expensive, nearly $100.

So happy to see all the folks here who share my terror at having my feet touched. My daughter thinks I'm crazy, and thinks it's hysterical to pretend she's going to tickle my foot. NOT FUNNY!! So nice to know I'm not alone in this.

The Rumblers rythm guitar player (known for his whammy-bar intro to BOSS) had the ugliest feet on earth.

When we'd be at the beach and a fine girl would stroll by, we'd make Mike bury his feet in the sand.

And no way I'd ever touch 'em.

This is all found in Gord's Story, of course.

Included with the "Songbook" collection is a very nice booklet with lots of biographical info in it. It was worth the money for that alone. It does not, however, contain the "toilet" story. :D
