Today’s post isn’t book related. It’s Canada related. When I was a kid, there used to be these shorts released by the National Film Board of Canada. They covered a plethora of topics Canadiana. They were on tv. They were shown in school. They were pretty prevalent. The one I, and most of the people I know, remember most distinctly is the log driver’s waltz. I can sing the chorus of the song by heart and a good chunk of the rest of it. You mention this song in a group of people of a certain age and we will probably start singing it. It’s apparently one of the most requested NFB shorts. This makes me think of a happy childhood.
If you’ve never seen this before, make sure you watch to at least the 45 second mark. That’s when everything changes 🙂
Canadian friends – do you have any other NFB vids you remember?
