~A little bit of everything today. My favorite son is on the road again. I got an email this morning telling me he is off to Vancouver for a few days and then on to Los Angeles. Hmmm... it's nice to be young eh : ) Hey Bud, have a great time. Take easy! Send your Dad a postcard.
~Interesting news from Tracy at the Shania Twain Centre ... she has managed to convert the mini-theatre there into a cool replica of the main beverage room at the old Maple Leaf Hotel in Timmins. Tracy has been working on it in secret for months! Tracy got a piece of the bar, some of the tables and chairs and even the door to the Ladies Room! Shania played at the Maple Leaf as her star was rising. Just so you know, the "Leaf" was a popular country music tavern in Timmins. It's biggest claim to fame is that it's where Stompin' Tom Connors began his singing career... he was unemployed and he agreed to sing for beer. This same bar was frequented by another country singer who claimed it was her all round favorite place to play because the fans were so much fun. Her name is Michelle Wright.
~The Timmins sportsman's show is on this coming weekend. It's at The Mac. Drop by the James Bay Frontier booth and say hi. We'll be in the curling rink.
