Ottawa Bluesfest Stage Collapse on Sunday July 17th

What were you doing on this day last year? It’s amazing how something so destructive can be going on in your town yet very few people are aware. What was I doing? I had just pulled off the road on my motorcycle to look inside a pub to assess it for the future. This is what I saw (video below).

Another thing I’m not a fan of is on a July 17th in the early 90’s I was getting married. I had the displeasure of finding out what happens when your spouse loves drugs. In retrospect the signs where there before I married her but hindsight is always 20:20. And sometimes we’re optimistic and naive. I’m glad to be away from all that.
