Thread Name: BS: Up and Coming
Subject: RE: BS: Up and Coming

Buddy MacDonald is a local Cape Breton star. He's probably on the Celtic Colors site - I saw a thread above. I first hear Buddy singing on the radio about drinking too much rum while driving from Ross's Ferry to Baddeck. The ferry went out of service years ago after they build the Seal Island Bridge, so was he either writing historically or drinking enormous quantities of rum. I bought his CD looking for the rum song, he probably has several now, and it was full of drinking songs. The title song was about it getting Dark Again for the third time since he got to the party.

I'm not sure if you are refering to your above question being a mixed metaphor or my above question being a mixed metaphor.

I trust that you and Amos aren't Mudpolice. I figured, perhaps mistakenly, that BS came from the latin for bruxo scribo or bollixi sostenuto or bloto soberis, blowzi supine, babblo sexulis, or something like that. I had hoped that if I wrote an open message in a friendly tone, any mudcatter with the urge would feel free to respond. I was glad to see that most creative and euridite man in Ohio, eruditus ohious, respond. If he failed to mention who is up and coming in Ohio it is probably because he is so busy banging his dolcimer.
