I was on that ship. Really! I was! It was about a year or two before she sank. I was about 17 and working as a welders helper. I think I was on her at the dock for about a week. You can't blame me, I didn't do any of the welding.

I've developed a phobia for lines ever since I was in the Marines. So far, I haven't panicked on any cruises.

Wow Sonny, I didn't realize you were that young. The SS Edmund sank in 1975. For some reason I got the impression you were older. I guess the way Dave was teasing you about being an old timer. Just goes to show you things aren't as they appear on the internet. I still have Gordon Lightfoot's album (yes album) of the song.

Opps! Thinking a litte more careful, it was about 1959 when I was working on her. I was born in 1941, which made me around 18. So it was 17 years after when she sank. Sorry, but we all wish we were younger at times.

Phew! Glad you cleared that age thing up. I didn't want to offend, but by my calcs, I was thinking, okay, 17 years old a couple years before she sank; she sank in 1972, so you were 17 in 1970, married 40 years in 2007; that meant you married in 1967, at age 14. I was also beginning to wonder if you were related somehow to Jerry Lee Lewis....

But now it's crystal clear.

One more correction: The Edmund Fitzgerald sank in November of 1975 in Lake Superior. All 29 crew members perished.

I blew it; I knew it was 1975, typed in 1972, and didn't see it. I'm sooo ashamed.

Forget about it GC, I'm still stunned that the towel animals are for kids! I feel so ashamed.
