Girls in Gooey Gowns


Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" Hope you had a fine Fourth of July.

It's been awhile since Spare and I gussied up in our gooey (and cheesy) colonial-repro gowns. But this year, with a new president in office -- and a new director of the local museum -- we decided to go help out at an Open House at the museum.

Our little borough has its own fireworks display on July 3. There's also a bigger display nearby on the Fourth, sponsored by a local geezer rock station. This year's geezer band concert was headlined by Foghat.

If you remember Foghat, don't be surprised if your knees hurt after you do your gardening.

As I sat in a crowd of 60,000 people, listening to Foghat, I began to wonder how it is that my family has lived 8 miles from Philadelphia for 22 years and has never gone into the city on the Fourth of July. That's sort of a no-brainer, isn't it?

Next year, it's time for a change.

For some of us, just being able to remember Foghat (Don Kirschners Rock Hour, anybody?) can make our knees hurt.

Does your daughter understand just how unique her experiences (thanks to YOU) are? Does she have the slightest idea how blessed she is?

I'm beginning to avoid watching these "Summer of Love" concert specials on PBS.......watching all these ex-hippies driving walkers and grooving along CAREFULLY lest they break or sprain something is just to disheartening to watch.

I hope no one in FOGHAT was breathing supplemental oxygen..........
