Summer

Posted on Saturday, May 15th, 2010 at 2:30 pm

Summer is off to an erratic start this year, laying down laying down a string of high’s in the 90’s, followed by a rainy spell and cooler temps.  I must say, the two inches of rain in 24 hours was a blessing after a full month without rainfall.  Saves a lot of effort watering.

A week away from the annual crawfish boil.  I’ll be one of the three cooks boiling up some 400 pounds of fresh ‘dads.  My my…..  Looking forward to it.  “Oh dat crawfish, oh dat crawfish.  If I cud ony git my wish, it wud be fo’ mo’ uv dat crawfish…….”

My post-departure from the Poser forums has been pretty quiet, compared to pre-departure.  But I left my mark in doing so.  A few people listened to me, enough that what I said will eventually come to light.  Most didn’t because they didn’t want to hear what I was saying, the proverbial ostriches burying their heads in the sand.  (Yes, I know the flightless birds are not hiding, rather grubbing for food, but the metaphor stands.)  That is their problem, not mine.  I’m glad to be away from the virtual land of presumed entitlement.  The community has changed so much in the last ten years, it no longer bears any resemblance to what attracted me to it back in the 90’s.  I will miss some people, but most of those whom I called friends have already departed in disgust.  I was just a little thicker skinned than most and took longer to throw in the towel.

I have Townes Van Zandt’s Lovers’ Lulaby down pat.  Time to start learning a new tune.
