Lazy Weekend Music: Out of the Darkness
Posted September 4, 2015on:
Finally! The Dark Times are over – it’s time for some football.
I’ve been away for a while due to a plethora of problems. I finally got my stepmother off to Reno, but I’m still trying to get her home emptied and closed up. Then I had an epic case of hives that just would not quit (stress+heat+histamine=miserable case of hives), but that’s pretty well cleared up. Anyhow, my troubles are subsiding as my joy rises.
Tomorrow my beloved Classic City Canines play the first game of the new season, featuring a whole lot of people who I have never heard of, or at least not very often. It’s another year in college football, and anticipation runs deep and wide through Athens, Georgia. I’ve hoisted my Bulldogs football flag, thus annoying my Gator neighbors. I have buffed up my large backyard UGA statue with a fresh coat of paint and turned him in the general direction of Sanford Stadium. I have cleaned thoroughly behind my couch so that I can take refuge when the game ditches. I have laid in multiple libations and fished out my favorite pizza menu. My game shirt is clean, and I am as good to go as I know how to be. So until I must leave you at noon tomorrow, let’s post songs of redemption, joy, and football and victory – or whatever else that you may see fit – in this wide open thread.
