Those pinch-pleated drapes were surely hung with pride, the fabric and color selection carefully considered. And then it all came down to this, a typical situation in typical times, to paraphrase the Dave Matthews Band.
Nebraska State Fair
Grand Island, Nebraska
NOTE: To be clear, DMB was not appearing at the Nebraska State Fair. As far as I am aware.
I spend around an hour and half every day in my car, driving back and forth to work. I listen to the radio* all the time. I have a lot of random lyrics stuck in my head.
Sometimes those lyrics pop up when I am not expecting them. Like when I saw this house and its four satellite dishes, and there was Dave Matthews in my head, singing:
Satellite dish in my yard
Tell me more, tell me more
Who’s the king of your Satellite Castle?
If you want this song in YOUR head (and who wouldn’t want that, really?), here’s a handy link.
*This is neither here nor there (probably), but I listen to satellite radio.
