A CAUSE FOR CHEER
While some were searching for meaning, or perhaps
meaningful ways to observe 11:11 on 11/11/11,
the Friday Lunch Flash Mob was otherwise concerned.
The rain, welcomed indeed, but furious none the less,
was likely to drench the weekly gathering below
the Castle. Serious stuff, because two birthdays
were to be observed. Up steps Ruth,
the matron saint of our salon society. We'll gather
at her place, bring in food and celebrate.
And so 11/11/11 was saved with good cheer.
The Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake was,
if you will, the icing on the lunch.
Outside the low pressure system and storm front which
had confounded forecasters, delivered a great soaking
while the sister and brotherhood warmed the day.
In true Cambrian fashion, Ruth rounded up vocalist Jerry,
to serenade the birthday kids and guests.
Little did he know as he sipped his coffee an hour earlier,
that he would be pressed into action.
But so in goes in this village by the sea.
So, let it rain. This mob can mobilize its flash
Still be resolved however, how much does
this storm leave behind? A Green Thanksgiving
hangs in the balance.
And to be sure, to those who have served
a heart felt thank you veteran!
We remember those who have gone.
See you down the trail.
