Our little village loves acting like they’re a big mountain town. They are very proud of the new Library (pronounced Lie-berry) and the new “civic theater” which not that long ago was the Armory. Out are the wrestling matches, in is this seasons production of Our Town. How fitting.
They have a parade for every holiday, religious and secular. Upon the first frost they festoon the street lights with garland and wreaths. It’s beautiful, and really gets one into the holiday spirit.
Then Mid-January comes upon us, and Stevie and his Homosexual longtime companion lifetime partner, Fuzzy start counting down the days when they’ll take all the crap down.
It’s always down by Easter, but just how soon to Easter is where the game begins. We have a running bet. The loser pays for a steak dinner. It’s very exciting. I have faith that it’s be down on Valentine’s Day. Fuzz says much later. Maybe the streets will be decorated for St. Patrick’s Day with green and red wreaths? Who knows, it’s all very exciting. I’ll keep you updated, keep thinking Valentine’s Day.
