Default A very cool Lightfootian address to have

Someone is one phone call away from having a very cool Orillia address

I don't believe it's an official road/alleyway but it would be nice to have a pic of Gord doing the 'cool' walk with guitar down the paved way, similar to the shot of him leaving Massey backdoor in one of the old Canmusic documentaries

btw, char, I ate some 'death by fudge' for you at the market, lol...didn't stay for the Santa parade but it was a very picturesque snow blanket once north of Newmarket

my hips are ok, it's the area in front of them that needs some crunching, lol

oh, so you know that alley...the only reference I could find to it as an "address" was http://centraleastontario.cioc.ca/de...423&Number=971

i suppose that one door leads to the apartment in question

i was gonna take a drive down it but it sure looks like a one way and i wasn't sure which way was which or how much traffic that book store generates

btw, i told jr it's gonna be a lean Christmas...but he's standing firm saying, "bail out or no bail out, you know there's still a lot of toys i don't have!"

which reminds me... last night on my way to meet my wife at our new financial adviser's office I noticed a hobo (aka homeless person) and gave him my last 5 dollars. Now so broke I had to get 50 cents from my wife to feed the parking meter I was wondering how much advice do I need to understand I'm broke ?

So tomorrow on Thanksgiving (US version only) I will count my other blessings.

To put some closure to this tale let me share with you part of the advice we received, "there's no place to hide right now". Alrighty then. And back on topic it would be cool to have that address jj, very cool indeed.

Well I don't think so but I do believe we have a vested interest in helping our fellow man, especially those in rough circumstances. Even if they "brought it on themselves" as some cynics might point out. So if we have a roof overhead and food on the table I think it's silly to "worry" about the size of our TV set, eh ?

Happy Thanksgiving (US version) to one and all. Peace be with you !

this story had me giving my head the biggest shake in some while...sad...i suppose not so surprising now that i think about it...i'm not trying to make light or be too cute or insensitive but size (and price) really does seem to matter
