what an awesome weekend with my folks. i can't express how much i love these two. you can't imagine what i've put them through and still they think i'm a good daughter. it makes me wonder what i'd have to do to make them think otherwise. don't worry i'm not trying.

we had steamed crabs on sunday followed by hotdogs and homemade macaroni salad. topped off with canolis oh my god how yummy. sunday we went cruising. (i'll post pictures later today.) oh yeah after dad made "simple" omelets. cheese and spinach and mushrooms with sausage, homefries, proscuitto wrapped melon, and english muffins (nothin' fancy.)

and last night the best ribs ever. sent home with a care package that would make emeril jealous.

my favorite part of the weekend, though was finding this poem in my dad's stuff.

What if they gave a war and no one came?
Then the war will come to you.
He who stays home when the fight begins
And lets others fight for his cause
Should take care. He who does not take part
In the battle will share in the defeat.
Even avoiding battle does not avoid
Battle, since not to fight for your cause
Really means
Fighting on behalf of your enemy's cause.

--Bertold Brecht

it reads very differently than on a bumper sticker doesn't it?

dude also wrote alabama song (the whiskey bar song by the doors) and mack the knife (sung by everyone from bobby darin to nick cave)
