Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

How Canadian is This!!!!

The Snowmobile Song

It's Wintertime and the weather's fine
The snow on the woods and fields when I reveal... my snowmobile
Thrill by thrill by golly n' hill Baby it'll make ya feel like an outdoor meal...
On a snowmobile


Listen to the sound when the belts go round '
When the winter carnival's here...
And oh what fun at the crack of the gun
When the whole gang disappears...


The race is on from the bush to the pond
And back where the judges's feel you've won their seal...
For the snowmobile
You've won their seal... for the snowmobile


Where skier's ski, and skater's pee and snowshoes lend appeal
Like a bogie wheel,... On a snowmobile
We tip the glass to the northern lass for she won't let ya kneel
She'd rather squeal -...on a snowmobile


You're off to the town where the word goes round
It's winter carnival time
In goggles, boots, and a snowproof suit
Your sweethearts on your mind
Ya win the race and you see her face and you know that she must feel
You've got a real... good snowmobile-


Now down the street U can hear the beat & the clickin of the dancer's heel
When the fiddler's peel... off a ragtime reel
You dance and tear with an "I don't care
On the way back home you'll wheel-over hill and field -
On a snowmobile


Through the golden glow on powdered snow
When the moon comes rolling along
On a homeward trail U can hear the wail of the whole gang singing a song..
If tomorrow's clear with fishin gear


We'll head for a lake trout meal With a rod and a reel-
and a snowmobile
Life can be real with a snowmobile
There ain't no deal like a snowmobile

Lyrics : Stompin Tom


Stomping Tom is a Canadian Icon He is a country singer who only sings songs he writes about country Canada. Years ago, he resisted going to the US to sing country music as his Hank Snow did. A-C-T Records Presents: The Official Stompin' Tom Connors Website

I heard to Snowmobile song for the first time today. It captures life in this north part of Ontario in Winter time.

Around here his song "Sudbury Saturday Night " TOM STOMPIN Lyrics - SUDBURY SAT NITE is among our favourites. It celebrates the mining city of Sudbury, when it was a much more rugged blue collar town than it is today. My favourite, is "Bud the Spud" TOM STOMPIN Lyrics - BUD THE SPUD , the story of Prince Edward Island potatoes being trucked across Canada. Nationally, the Hockey song is an anthem

Hmmmm. Stompin' Tom huh? Well, since I am not a fan of country music, snow, or hockey, I'll comment on Paulo. That's a beauty, and I hope you do get a pair in the spring. As for Howie, lighten up Philip. It's all a fun thing. Times are bad enough with Dub-ya running wild, let's have a little fun with Howie and his gamblers. Thanks so much for commenting in my blog contest. You're right, it was a Roseate Spoonbill. And I have seen one in person right here on the shores of Lake Seminole. Full of gators! Take care.
