  • Celebrate!

    It's been ten years since that lonely day I left you
    In the morning rain, smoking gun in hand
    Ten lonely years but how my heart, it still remembers
    Pray for me, momma, I'm a gypsy now

    Professor Henry Jones : It tells me, that goose-stepping morons like yourself should try *reading* books instead of *burning* them!

            Just feeling very happy that I no longer live in Denver where I had to pick up broken beer bottles and other trash thrown out of the cruising cars celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

            Whupping the French is hardly worth celebrating.

              Our hometown community consists of 5 small towns where the county has a wonderful mixture of Mexican and cowboy cultures. If you dislike Mexican food, you might be a racist.
              May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
              Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
              And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
              may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

                Must've been Cinco de Mayo every Friday night in the little beach town where we lived in Florida. "cause I sure 'nuff had that problem nearly every Saturday morning.
                "Since the historic ruling, the Lovings have become icons for equality. Mildred released a statement on the 40th anniversary of the ruling in 2007: 'I am proud that Richard’s and my name is on a court case that can help reinforce the love, the commitment, the fairness, and the family that so many people, Black or white, young or old, gay or straight, seek in life. I support the freedom to marry for all. That’s what Loving, and loving, are all about.'." - Mildred Loving (Loving v. Virginia)

                  In Denver the cruising thing is very big for the 5th of May with hundreds of cars, Mexican music, Mexican flags, etc. The police try to stop it but the cars just divert to new streets. It was always a huge mess because I lived on a secondary street that ended up at a big park.

                    I told you not to throw the bottles out the window as you're pulling in the driveway.

                    And day's at the morn;
                    Morning's at seven;
                    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
                    The lark's on the wing;
                    The snail's on the thorn:
                    God's in his heaven—
                    All's right with the world!

                      Be a shame if your car "broke down" backing out of your driveway and blocked off the street.

                        LOL! I moved years ago so the issue is over for me. I did make guacamole Saturday but that was for a non-Mexican party.

                          Seems like such a strange, trivial holiday for us to celebrate. Just an excuse for Mexican restaurants to sell out of margaritas and frozen drinks.

                          I've been told they don't even really celebrate Cinco in Mexico. It's just an American gimmick.

                              I don't participate because I'm a professional drunk and refuse to mingle with the amateur riffraff.

                              When I had to visit Denver frequently, I always avoided the time frame around May 5th.
                              Same as my avoidance of Detroit around Halloween.

                              and lost …
                              But the Republicans are racist.
