Gordon Lightfoot died Monday at a hospital in Toronto, age 84. He was one of my favorite folk singers, Sundown, Carefree Highway, If You Could Rea my Mind and so many others.

The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald will conjure up a cold stormy November day in Cleveland wherever or whenever I hear it, and all the uncertainty and rumors until the shipwreck was located.

Rest in peace, troubadour.

It doesn't matter how old you get, buying snacks for a road trip should always look like an unsupervised 9-year-old was given $100.

^ Beautifully put, Lady Liebe.

Gordon Lightfoot wrote some beautiful songs, with a lightness and delicacy of melody and lyrics somehow.

It was a special time to be growing up and hearing those songs for the first time.

48 years ago today the Edmund Fitzgerald, heading for Cleveland, sank in a storm on Lake Superior 17 miles N to NW of Whitefish Bay.

Remembering the 29 souls who perished with the ship, and Gordon Lightfoot who memorialized them forever.
