Thread Name: Apple Hollow Music Fest Quebec Canada '09
Subject: RE: Apple Hollow Music Fest Quebec Canada '09 you remember Mr. Ironsides at Verdun High? Needless to say, with a moniker like that, he had many other less complimentary names like "tin ribs" and "brass balls". The reason I remember him so distinctly is one of those "where were you when" moments. I was in Grade 10 geometry with Ironsides on November 22, 1963 when news came in of John F. Kennedy's assassination. I was thinking of that last week while I was in Canada when word came of Walter Cronkite's death. As a young Canadian, I didn't know much about American network news in those days, but I remember being glued to my TV that Friday evening listening to Cronkite and the events of the assassination.

Sorry for the thread drift.........
