Ponding

Rain, heavier rain forecast, with possibility of  'ponding in roadways,' and 'flash floods.' Today's big parade has been postponed until Saturday, everyone sent home, and the Fire Trucks and Tractors back in their garages.  Perfect opportunity just to sit around drinking for those who can.

The Artist, whose own blood is a little more red, white and blue than mine, took us to the 'show-down' yesterday evening. She reminded me to face the flag during the anthem. I was hoping to see an electric guitar that could sing and a bass player. Maybe a drummer with a sense of humor. Or someone who could dance. But I reckon we are too close to Nashville, and too trapped by corporate for those sorts of delights.
