Celebrate Good Times, Come On!

It's Decatur Celebration Time again!

Pull out your wife-beaters and flip flops and make your way to downtown Decatur this weekend. As is custom, the weather will be heinous and the alcohol will be flowing.

I will, once again, be in the Razzle, Dazzle Good Times Parade with the District, though this year I will be riding in style in the Mobile Nature Center...out of the heat.

Not sure if we'll make it back to the festivities any other time this weekend. Danny expressed interest in seeing the Romantics of "What I Like About You" and "Talking in Your Sleep" fame. Could be cool. Those old groups who show up at the Celebration are always hit or miss. Marshall Tucker Band was a big miss, while WAR was a huge hit. Boys II Men wasn't bad either, but there were so many people crammed in the streets I was reserved to watch it on the small video screen of someone's camera standing nearby.

You can certainly find a fantastic selection of fair food from deep fried twinkies to alligator on a stick to giant turkey legs to chinese food. And as I mentioned, plenty of beer for the masses. And I just heard on the radio today that you can register your kids for school! So grab a brew and head over the the public school registration table! One stop shopping, really.

Oh D-Cel, what a fixture you have been in my life!

Hope to see you there!
