"Fellas, it's been good to know ya..."
I heard on the radio this morning that today is the 35th anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I lived for a short period on that big lake they call Gitche Gumee, and I have very fond memories of my dad playing Gordon Lightfoot's song for me over and over when I was a toddler. As I got older, I was haunted by the lyrics. It's still one of my favourite songs. RIP to the men who died in the crash.
