Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

As a young boy we used to walk to, "The Big Rock" and it was once surrounded by the waters of Lake Huron, (water deep enough to jump into).
Although the waters have subsided from their high point of long ago, the memories have not.

    Your words reminded me of one of my favorite James Keelaghan songs: River Run
    River of blue cut through the valley
    Swept past the willows and the sandy bar
    Ran so swift, locked in my mem'ry
    But the way things were is not the way things are
    We used to swim in the crook of its arm
    In the summer heat who could be blamed
    Avoided the rapids as best as we could
    Never thought that that stream could be tamed
    Long ago I gave up that riverside valley
    Traded coulees for towers of steel
    Abandoned the vistas and valleys of childhood
    For the things that they told me were real
    No more would I run with the speed of a colt
    Cross the gravel down by water side
    To race with the twig I threw in at the bend
    Couldn't beat it though god knows I tried
    Now the river's not running as fast as it did
    There's a dam there restricting the flow
    And I don't run either as fast as I could
    Guess that river and I have grown old
    Now it's strange in returning to places of youth
    It seems your memory has made a mistake
    Cause the place that once scared you with white water running
    Has been turned by decree to a lake
    Makes me think about how too I smoothed out the wrinkles
    Made the waters as calm as you please
    Makes me think about how that river and I
    Were both happier when we ran free
    Now the river's not running as fast as it did
    There's a dam there restricting the flow
    And I don't run either as fast as I could
    Guess that river and I have grown old
    Guess that river and I have grown old
