We had to be back by about 3:30 pm to ready for our evening out at the Spotlight 29 Casino. We were planning an early dinner before taking in the Gordon Lightfoot performance there.

The Gordon Lightfoot concert appeared to be sold out. The well known Canadian singer and songwriter played many of his well known tunes (Beautiful, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, etc.) and the attendees seemed thrilled to see him. There were many hoots and shouts between songs.
Although it was a treat to see him live, I would have preferred to simply remember him from earlier recordings and at a time when he could truly sing. He is 76 or 77 years old and he simply cannot carry a tune well anymore. Why these recording artists continue to perform - when they really should not - seems illogical. However, it was our choice to attend. Although glad I did attend, I think our days of buying show tickets to see aging artists is waning. I prefer to listen to original recordings over seeing and listening to a struggling voice. I felt the very same way after seeing Willie Nelson perform last year.
|The last supper!|
|Diane and Hector's special meal - A Newfoundland Jigs Dinner.|
It was HMMMMMM, HMMMMMM, GOOD! Thanks for invite to this awesome meal guys!
We dug into the Jigs dinner with gusto. It is a lovely tradition!
|Hector and Diane enjoyed sharing this Newfie tradition and we enjoyed it to the fullest.|
|Dinner was topped off with this outstanding desert.|
Even Chico enjoyed a tiny bit of Jigs dinner and thanked his handler by sitting on his lap. Although he weighs about 80 lbs, he seems to think he is a lap dog.
