Happy Sunday Readers –
The lens-artists team is celebrating their first anniversary and when it came across my desk, I was already working on BETWEEN THE LINES for Friendly Friday Photo Challenge (here).
The “between the lines” photos just so happened to fit the word prompts from lens-artists – So in this post, I invite you to check out the lines – and connections to the word prompts (at least in my mind they relate – hope you see it too).
The first prompt was
I chose Canada:
Next prompt was

Let’s close with this classic song from Triumph, Lay it on the Line.
This song came to mind because it connected with the lines, but it is also imaginative, the band is Canadian, and I have friendship connections with their music.
I was able to see them play at “The Aud” (Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium) in February 1985 – whoa! It was a huge venue. The concert was special because as a super young teen – I felt so myself at that show.
Then, in 1989, I saw the lead singer, Rik Emmett, perform a solo show at a small club in Buffalo. Rik (here) was born in Toronto (in 1953) and at the concert, I met this guy named Bob, who later went to Kirstin’s wedding with me (but he was a snob the night of the wedding and it was our last date). Bob, who looked a little like Pete Sampras, was getting ready to go to school at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). Years later, in 1998-99, I worked in Denver with a guy named Brent, who was in the same CIA class with Bob (known as Bob from Buffalo). Small world.
Anyhow, I guess this year, 2019, Triumph was finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (here).
Or should I say, “Rock on.”
Wait, maybe I should say, “Blog on….”
Yes, that’s it.
Have a great day, friends, and Blog on….
