Lucky! I still remember when I served him and the rest of the band when I was waitressing at Zak’s as a teenager :)

I suppose you can’t tell me what kind of guitar that was, can you? PS: you could see all kinds of hunky singers that close at a house concert.

Blue Rodeo’s Five Days in July was one of the first CD’s I ever bought and actually listened to, over and over and over again! I now have all their albums and a mega music crush!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
