When I was in my early teens, I tape recorded music from the radio station CFNY on a regular basis. They played a lot of cool British pop music at the time. The station eventually morphed into something called The Edge, which went on to become a bland rock station. Anyway, I had taped this one song that I loved, but I didn't know who performed it. Sniffing around YouTube 20 years or so later, I started to wonder if this mystery song was by Prefab Sprout. I was eating my lunch in front of the computer in my classroom last year. I clicked on "Faron Young," and lo and behold - it was the song! This was a real Howard-Carter-discovering-King-Tut's-tomb -moment. The mystery was solved and I got to hear a song (still terrific all these years later) once again. I think I might go and by the CD this week. I remember the album was originally called Steve McQueen, but they had to change it to Two Wheels Good. Pour yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the twangy goodness.
I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
My husband and I stock a booth rammed to the rafters with vintage treasures at Valley Antiques in charming Dundas, Ontario. It's a few kilometers west of Hamilton. Come visit this best kept secret in Southern Ontario and swing by Valley Antiques. There are over 50 vendors selling cool and beautiful things and you won't be paying Toronto prices (speaking as a former Hogtown gal).
