c is for corn

A light wind swept over the corn, and all nature laughed in the sunshine.

Anne Brontë (1820-1849) novelist & poet

happy labor day weekend!

this weekend is conventionally considered the last weekend of the summer - but the autumn equinox isn't until september 23rd, so to be correct we have 2 more summer weekends!

isn't that comforting news!

except checking out the 10th annual cleveland peace show on monday not much is on the calendar --just chillin' at casa mouse, catching up with friends, and of course, cooking out in the backyard and enjoying some fresh picked corn!

blues legend big bill broonzy's version of the traditional folk song blue tail fly, also known as jimmy crack corn.

I liked the Cleveland Nonviolence site....the Peace show sounds like something I'd be totally into.

Enjoy your 'C'hillaxing weekend.

What a glorious shot of the corn! & I've always had a fascination with "Blue Tailed Fly"--good version by Big Bill! Haqve a great weekend!

Our corn has all pretty much been harvested already; now the air is redolent with the smell of manure from the post-harvest spreading.

Great Bill Broonzy tune. Thanks!

At last and finally, this summer is coming to an end. That is such sweet music to me. Big Bill's not bad either.
