Notes from the Waxhaws

Painted smiles

The circus is in town this week…and the ringmaster is staying at a hotel that I pass everday on my way to and from work. So…I’m taking an alternate route to avoid the throngs. At one time in the past, I would get excited too (hey…I voted for John Anderson in 1980…not sure if I should admit to that). But now…it’s just so much smoke and mirrors. As Will said…”a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

I’ll be glad when they pull up the stakes and move on. And besides…then they won’t have to worry about the usual afternoon thunderstorms raining on their perfectly planned spectacle.
