Nothing like anticipating a Lightfoot Concert!
But so far nothing posted for my neck of the woods... ah, the suspense!
Bless you all and keep you on the road to tenderness
Heaven can be yours just for now

I actually had this typed up on my Nokia N800 internet tablet

before midnight on Sunday but the stupid hotel (the Danbury Plaza) wanted to charge big bucks to use their precious wifi network
Ridgefield is a very pleasant and prosperous looking town with many quality (i.e. not cheap) restaurants we initially pondered getting subs from Subway but ventured into the delightful Bailey's Backyard American Bistro . For appetisers my two ladies both chose very good crab cakes, I plumped for the "Creole Grits'
my curiousity about grits had recently been aroused by the trailer for a new NBC sitcom that starts in the Autumn ahem fall called Outsource
which is going to be controversial and branded racist let alone panned for making fun of the fact that jobs in the US and elsewhere are being lost to other poorer paid countries,but which featured an outsource worker in India (where else?) demonstrating his grasp of the American accent and idiom by spouting off about grits,(which frankly I had no clue as to what they were and still don't)
My dish was a truly excellent mix of Cajun sauce shrimps crayfish and a superb portion of alligator that compared well with the crocodile I sampled in Cairns Queensland in 2007.
my entree a seafood risotto was not as good being far too salty
then it was a quick drive to the Danbury hotel to change before returning to the small Ridgefield Playhouse (only 500 capacity hence the ticket price was high) where we met up with Jenney also Bill Hall who had brought his son Stephen to his first Lightfoot concert.
Sitting in the row behind us was Blair well known from his Newsgroup postings
Gord started by thanking everybody for coming out on a Sunday and gave a good intro to Let it Ride by listing all the cities mentioned in the song.("Rangoon has been renamed")
The second half opener "Triangle" featured a lyric change
where the usual
"And when we've looked over the white cliffs of Dover We'll be in Bahama next year"
became instead an obscure reference to "four leafed clover"
We were delighted to hear that "Home From The Forest was now "back in circulation" and had received several requests
"Waiting For You" was strangely introduced as being written for "my first ex old lady" (usually and logically his second!!) who wanted a family so.. there are a couple more now (or words to that effect)
All in all a very good concert with excellent acoustics
it was my 69th and Jenney's 98th concert
