Subject: RE: Folklore: Now tis first of May
Dawn at High Park in Toronto, an hour and 1/4 drive for us. Some of our team stayed down there with friends relatives etc.
The Weather was outstanding, the best I remember in the last ten years. Beatiful sunshine all day long, we have had sleet some years.
Happy May to all from the Morris Dancers of Toronto Canada and area.
Green Fiddle Morris, Toronto Morris Men, The Belles of York, Toronto Womens Sword, Half Crown Clog, Cold Barn Morris, and my side Orange Peel Morris.
We all danced two dances and a couple of massed dances, with the traditional song singing bit in the middle. I got to lead Hal an Toe this year as Parky had no voice. Then off to John Mayberry's place for a Pot Luck breakfast.
Someone said it was the 28th year.
Some of us then get back together around tenish, after breakfast anyhow, and wander around Toronto dancing here and there. Funny how many British people we met yesterday, they invariably say "I didn't know anyone did this sort of thing over here"
