We live a short walk from Lake Ontario Park. This afternoon, we walked over with the two kiddies to watch a magic show. It was bad but the vast majority of performance for the under kindergarten set is bad, unless you are a simpering ninny who likes, say, magic tricks with obvious gaps in their trick components. So I came expecting nothing and was not disappointed.
We walked on to the swings after the "magic" was over and could hear the setting up of small band and their first few numbers. Kinda of garage. We walked down to the shore and I started recognizing a tune and Ellen started a bit of an air guitar. Led Zep, I thought. Sunday afternoon in the Park. I am at the far-end of the park and I am clearly hearing Zep.
Then...there is was. AC/DC's Highway to Hell being played by some disfunctional teens for the kiddies and grannies at the swing set. Good to hear not much has changed since Jeff Mitchell and highschool pals played George Jones shifting one each tune from twang into punk during the live stage talent contest hosted by WLBZ TV's Stacey's Country Jamborie right on Inglis Street in Truro, Nova Scotia some summer Saturday afternoon around 1982.
We walked on with the kids, humming as we went down to the Lake Ontario shore, pointing out a mother duck and some duckings swimming along.
