Salem, Virginia, December 2017 (2)

This is one festive town.  It seems like there is a parade every five minutes.  Last night it was the local high school boys; they’d won their fifth state championship for … something or other.  Football, given the season?

They waved and shouted “Merry Christmas,” so I responded in kind to be polite.  Then a particularly friendly Salem woman commented to me that I must be a very proud father, and that got me feeling all weird.

A couple of the kids shouted, “Support Net Neutrality!”  That’s some nice work there, Salem.

I’m including a picture of me here to show off an early Christmas present from an amazingly talented poet friend — a monogrammed, handmade scarf.  I only had errands yesterday in the town, but I threw on my dress overcoat and pretended to be Bruce Wayne.
