If tomorrow is Flag Day in Mexico, that means there are only 110 more
shopping days till our own Flag Day. This is truly my favorite time of year.
I don’t know what it is, but I really do get caught up in the Flag Day
spirit. I realize I am no longer a child, but I still like to hang my Flag
Day stocking on the fireplace in hopes that in the wee hours of June 14th,
Francis Scott Key will come barreling down my chimney. I know he keeps tab
as to whether I’ve been good or bad this year, but I always leave out a
plate of cured ham, boiled turnips, and a hard roll, along with a bottle of
Beefeater, just in case he’s on the bubble upon descent.
Just think, in no time we’ll singing Flag Day carols around the family
Flag Day goose. Everybody will be getting off work; but not before everyone
receives their Flag Day bonuses. And before you know it, it will all be gone
for another year. But don’t rest just yet, that always means Arbor Day is
just around the corner.

DJ DeLuxe @ The Red Room @ 8:30
Jay needed somebody to fill in, so I’ve decided to let him put his foot
where his mouth is. For those of you familiar with my spinning days at
Martin’s years ago or my radio show in Oxford, the evening will follow the
same format: Nasty soul grooves that will not only make you slip into nod,
but launch your rear into the stratosphere. Jay has obliged me with the
early start time to allow 8-5ers to bloom a superior posterior as well.

I have yet to see Scrapple, but I do know Geoff Hanson. Aside from
making The Earth Will Swallow You, he’s bought me Jagermeister
in four different states. Scrapple was his first movie. I don’t know the
whole story, but I know it’s set in 1970s Colorado and centers around ski
