For the Over-Fifty Crowd
Scowl-Face recounts the Library's "over 50" celebration way back in May, 1967 on his Indiana Room Treasure Trove blog. Do you remember what you were doing at the time? Well, maybe if you're a gazillion years old. Moi, I was living one of my previous nine lives, and I was hanging out in the Village, listening to Bob Dylan records. Not Greenwich Village in New York City--I mean the Village shopping center in Mooresville. Okay, I'm actually kidding. I was living on a ranch between Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta. That's Canada for those geographically-challenged folks out there. I was listening to Gordon Lightfoot albums.
Hey, did you know Scowl-Face may have seen Gordo playing live at the 1967 Exposition in Montreal? He saw a photograph showing Lightfoot performing there, and Scowlly remembers seeing musicians playing on a stage at the Expo on the correct date. How cool is that?

P.S. "Alberta Bound," by Gordon Lightfoot, appeared on his LP Don Quixote (1972). Ever been? You'd like it there, I'll wager.
