  • Floating snow yes so pretty we were always out there like you not one much for staying in then either!!…I remember One extremely cold year lanes cove was socked in I do mean Ice bergs…If you were brave like we were and found out not always a good thing could cross the cove from one end to another accept the slipping off or oops in the drink ended that excursion quickly wet feet equal get home which was only 2-5 minutes then from cove I gave it extra time because getting up Duley street, or alternative go up the less steep side end up by Andrews Corner – “well slower slip sliding away!”

    Paul Simon – Slip Slidin’ Away + lyrics

    Lyrics:

    Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    I know a man
    He came from my home town
    He wore his passion for his woman
    Like a thorny crown
    He said Dolores
    I live in fear
    My love for you’s so overpowering
    I’m afraid that I will disappear

    Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    I know a woman
    Became a wife
    These are the very words she uses
    To describe her life
    She said a good day
    Ain’t got no rain
    She said a bad day’s when I lie in bed
    And think of things that might have been

    Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    And I know a fa-ther
    Who had a son
    He longed to tell him all the reasons
    For the things he’d done
    He came a long way
    Just to explain
    He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
    Then he turned around and headed home again

    Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    God only knows
    God makes his plan
    The information’s unavailable
    To the mortal man
    We’re working our jobs
    Collect our pay
    Believe we’re gliding down the highway
    When in fact we’re slip slidin’ away

    Slip slidin’ away
    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away

    Slip slidin’ away
    You know the nearer your destination
    The more you’re slip slidin’ away
    Mmm…

    Dave 🙂
