I swear I am related to this woman.
Deb, over at My Great White North, just tickles me with her blog. Always funny, wry dialogue accompanied by funny, wry photos, usually of her dog, Lucy, and their escapades in the great white north. I don't know Deb, not personally, but I think we've become really good blog acquaintances and I sing her praises every chance I get.
Today, though, today she blew my socks off.
Deb posted my FAVOURITE song/video in the whole WORLD.
The Blackfly is a quintessential north Ontario favourite. It's been around, I dunno, for YEARS as a National Film Board short but the song was written in 1949 by a guy who was sent up north to do surveying and was overwhelmed by the nasty blackfly.
Do me, and yourself, a favour. Pour yourself a cuppa joe, go to Deb's blog and settle back for five minutes of BIG FUN!
Then come back and tell me what you thought!
Oh, and while you're visiting? You might want to peruse Deb's other offerings. I look forward to her stuff every single day. She is a little known treasure of this place we call Muskoka.
And Deb? Seriously, we have to have coffee some day.
