Gordon Lighfoot came over yesterday to visit and play his guitar. Ann Liebold phoned on Sunday and said Gordon would be passing through and wanted to know if I was still interested in a "private concert" for myself and my family.
He arrived in a Cessna Citation at our county airport and cell phoned me. I immediately picked him up and we went to my home for a BBQ. Gord complimented me on my ability to grill a New York Strip and asked for a second helping of my wife's potato salad.
After a few rounds of chasing my kid's around the yard, Gord went to his guitar case and began strumming a few strings.
He paused briefly, to tune his instrument and clear his voice.
As if the angel's from heaven had sent him,
he began an "unplugged version" of Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I was blown away by
the harmony and beauty of his voice and guitar and then I realized it was all JUST A DREAM !! Happy April Fool's Day Everyone!
How I wish this was true, but alas; that is the reason the good Lord gave us all an imagination!

Cathy,
Yes indeed - and shortly thereafter there was a great post detailing a portion of that meeting I believe by Char aka Char1, etc,LOL. It was deleted real soon after it went up and I posted a question if anyone else had seen it. A few had but not many. Perhaps enough time has passed to recount that historic meeting ? Or not - but it was a very cool description of meeting our benefactor who we all owe a great deal of gratitude.

I don't remember the post you're referring to. It really wasn't a earth shattering occurance. During intermission, we were standing up and looking back at the audience and someone pointed out Florian, who at the time was talking to Char, so a few of us walked over and said hi. All I remember was his accent was so thick I couldn't understand a word he was saying! He was a class act, though... well dressed, tall, dark and handsome.

I grabbed him and hugged him - I was so excited to finally meet him! I was absolutley thrilled to meet everyone actually! I cried and laughed the whole convention through!

Char,

Thanks. That's the one I remember - about you yelling and crying and laughing, etc. Good story.

You didn't really believe that I'd met him before, did you? If so, your either old or don't drink enough coffee.

So where have you been DMD3? Perhaps you have forgotten to work on your manners while you were gone?

If I may: I think DMD3's comments were in the spirit of the original post of this thread - that being April Fools Day.
