As I write this post, it is May 4th, Star Wars Day!! Why, because “May the Fourth be with you!” If you don’t get it, I’m sorry. The local baseball AA team , the Tulsa Drillers has a Star Wars day on the 4th, if they are playing a game, and lots of people show up in costume.
Star Wars and Baseball! Can’t beat that.
Thursday is May 5th, Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday celebrating their victory over France in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. In the US, it is mainly an excuse to dring margaritas. That’s okay isn’t it? I will now have a musical interlude on one of my favorite country songs: “Tequila a Little Time” by Jon Pardi. The video is filmed at my wife and I’s favorite beach bar, Florabama, on the border of Florida and Alabama.
If you don’t get the play on words, then I can’t help you.
We’ve spent a lot of time at Florabama. We don’t drink too much tequila.
Our beverage of choice are bushwhackers, kind of a rum and ice cream concoction. Our limit is two and we always stay within walking distance.
Anyway, you enjoy both holidays, responsibly!!
May the 4th be with you too 🙂 Great post!
disfruta, del día de Star wars y del 5 de mayo. Te mando un beso.
I get it, I love it, we’ve been to the Floribama and loved it (when we stayed near Mobile on that side of the border one winter)_….fabulous post, good memories and wow those Princess Leia buns on that girl in the first photo are great. Fun times. Even when I’m a day late for Cinco de May0. (We had Margaritas at home and take-out Taco Salads. Mexican restaurants aren’t quite as good here as some other places where we’ve lived!)
Fun times. I am holiday ignorant. Two sips of margarita and I’m plastered.
