All day yesterday (and most of today) I was denied Internet Access by the FREE Wi-Fi supposedly provided by the community wherein I currently reside. I do not know why. It happens almost every week. And nobody will give me any information about the problem.
I guess there are just some things in life we are fated to never know.
Anyway... below is the blog entry which was meant to be uploaded on Cincode Mayo.
Cincode Mayo commemorates the Mexican victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. But did you know that:
Cincode Mayo isn’t widely celebrated in Mexico outside the state of Puebla, but it has been adopted by many Americans regardless of their heritage, much like St. Patrick’s Day and Oktoberfest. It’s been celebrated in California since 1863, and grew in prominence in the rest of the country along with the Chicano movement of the 1940s. It wasn’t until beer advertisers decided to promote the holiday heavily in the 1980s that American celebration of Cincode Mayo became widespread.
As I sit here trying to think of something significant to write about I am listening to my radio, reliving the still powerful emotions I once felt long ago, hearing a young Rickie Nelson singing Poor Little Fool -- and wondering why I am still hanging around, why I continue on...
Yes, I know such thoughts are deemed negative, and unproductive. Yet the thoughts are there, unbidden of course, but in existence none the less.
Probably better kept unblogged, though. Kept to one's self.
Tucson's Santa Catalina Mountains
(Walking North on Soldier Trail)
It was the first of May A lovely warm spring day I was strolling down the street in drunken pride, But my knees were all a-flutter, And I landed in the gutter And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
Yes, I lay there in the gutter Thinking thoughts I could not utter When a lady passing by did softly say 'You can tell a man who boozes By the company he chooses' -- And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
I just had some breakfast. Some fresh baked biscuits and a small bowl of blueberries and mixed tropical fruit.
