From the Chippewa on down....

This Freightliner Columbia has a mural has a mural of the Big Fitz as it wallowed through the storm that lead to its demise.




I chose the youtube video of Gordon in 1979 for those who might not be familiar with the singer or the song.
39 years later Gordon is still touring and singing this song.

I actually have a link to that song on my computer screen. ;D
Fascinating story, though very tragic.
The mural is really cool, great catch!

....it caused a lot of uproar and I understand that is was banned in the USA for years...........tragic news but sometimes I quite enjoy a side of that as we would not always remember these happenings....IMO we can learn from the mistakes we make through history and move forward!
