Apparently the ‘Burg has a gang sign now. It involves creating a 2 with the thumb and pointer finger of ones right hand and crossing it over the other hand, with complete 5 fingers showing. This is the 2-7. As in the Code. If you are from Boalsburg you know this. If not, you do not need to know the code. (
as in the ZIP CODE). Claire taught me how to do it so I can represent my roots. And by The ‘Burg I am referring to Boalsburg, PA of course! Where it’s at. And they do Memorial Day like it’s their job. Which it might be, I do believe we claim to have given birth to Memorial Day after all…
Here are the musical selections of the weekend! The themes I suppose.
Shadow People–Dr. Dog (specifically 1:30 onwards)
Needless to say, Boalsburg was the place to be last weekend. They’ve got everything from a carnival (for those who like fun I guess, not me.) to a real honest-to-goodness Maypole Dance (with pie and crafts in between!!!) And the best part is the whole thing is like a rehearsal for the crowning glory of all summer festing. The 4th of July. My next favorite holiday aside from Christmas/Thanksgiving (I can’t decide if I like one or the other more). Few things get me more wound up than blueberry pie, fireworks, and rompers sprinkled in patriotism! No joke.
Here are 2 jolly Co-Fest-ers: *Note Allie’s face depicts exactly what we’re feeling regarding the insane humidity squelching us silly here* It was like taking a day-long bath in your own sweat. NICE…
And in about 2.5 months will be Fantastic Peachy-Fine Apartment-Mates!
In a nutshell, Monday was spent with fabulous people all around, starting with ‘Burg-Festing in the morning, to picnic-ing and creek walking in the afternoon and a campfire in the evening (complete with visiting horses, who did not in fact eat me alive as I was assuming they would surely try to do). 🙂 Such a lovely day, I do hope you’re Memorial Day was filled with friends and good times too.
