Subject: RE: May Day Dancing 2003
Well, we greeted the dawn with six teams of Morris dancers as the sun rose from up the Potomac where it joins the Shennandoah. The Border Morris team was as unruley as always, and their shouts brought local joggers and early morning dog walkers, who were then empressed as ribbon weavers for the May Pole. I'm glad to report that the Town Crier announced that we had a "Perfect Weave" which of course, signifies a good year to follow.

Tomorrow, I have discovered we have the May Day Parade, the local college is having it's annual all day rock festival, there is a major funeral of a town councilman, and the evening Contra Dance will have sound piped to the second floor for the overflow dancers. The town has a population of about 850, the college about 1200 and the police are expecting to exceed last years 9,000.

The Border Morris are bringing their thicker sticks...

Thank God the councilman was not Palestinian...
