Southern Man

Saturday, July 07, 2012


With all three Southern Children about there's just no end to the fun and excitement.

First off, Southern Son has a very nasty spider bite on his thumb and it just got nastier and nastier.

That would be the work of the Brown Recluse. You should YouTube "Brown Recluse Bite," some of them are pretty entertaining. We especially like this one.

He called and complained that much of his hand was going numb so rather than wait for Monday Teen Daughter the Elder and Southern Man picked him up and took him to a nearby urgent care facility where the doc looked it over and prescribed antibiotics and sent us on our way without even any dramatic draining. And all this rather detracts from Southern Man's own drama as he has his very own recluse bite as well, but all it did was leave a little crater scar on his leg.

The elder children at Walgreens.

The Southern Man went to the local amusement park for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, who played to probably the largest crowd Southern Man has ever seen at that particular venue. He probably took a dozen pictures, none of which are worth posting but here's one anyway.

This was the best of the lot, and you still can't see the big "Joan Jett and the Blackhearts" sign behind the stage.

The concert was followed by a terrific fireworks display.

Southern Man loves fireworks. Turns out Teen Daughter the Younger (who has no interest in ancient rock and was riding rides during the concert) was near the launch site and got a little scared.

And that was a Southern Man Saturday. Hope yours was equally exciting!
