Charlie Baum Lyr Req: Lake George, 1922 (Teresina M. Huxtable) (65* d) RE: Lyr Req: Lake George, 1922 (Teresina M. Huxtable) 18 Nov 16

Thanks for the corrections, RD Eno! It was a long time ago that I transcribed what I thought I heard, and now that I've seen the history link provided by my friend John Mazza (for which many thanks) I can see that's it's definitely Horicon rather than Oregon. Not having read James Fenimore Cooper (where the name Horicon comes from) nor having ridden the boats, I transformed the sounds into a familiar word. I remember Lake George from the few days I spent there back when I was about 8 or 9 years old, and I still remember "driving" one of the antique motorcars at the ride at Gaslight VIllage. We never cruised on the lake, although we did drive up Route 9N on the shores of the lake to Ticonderoga with its historic fort and pungent paper mill smells. I suppose next time I see Teresina Huxtable, I'll have to ask her to set the record straight--I bumped into her at the Old Songs Festival a year or two ago, and Huxtable Christensen & Hood has a new CD out and is setting up concerts reuniting the group.
