river gi'ver

spent the afternoon at the Arts Centre (in an old Oddsfellow Hall downtown) being part of the "Yukon River Gi'ver Dance"...not that I know how to line dance, in fact I've never even seen Riverdance/Lord of the Dance/or any others. However...Rae Spoon, known as the bravest banjo player to ever escape from Alberta, came up with the concept of designing a Dawson dance (for eventual play on youtube--stand by) to be performed in large heavy boots & parka. it was really hot inside the Oddsfellow Hall, so we eventually took our parkas and dance steps outside to the riverbank --much to the amusement of skidoo drivers whipping by in clouds of powder snow.
