Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!

It's May, it's May, the lusty month of May (song cue), although around here the lusty May parts happened a couple of months ago. I have lived in Tallahassee for 32 years now, and to the best of my recollection this is only the second time the Springtime Tallahassee Jubilee in the Park has been cancelled. The first one always stuck in my memory because I was laid up with a broken ankle and fractured leg and couldn't go, having never missed it I was really unhappy that I was going to be forced to miss it due to the injury. But the weather turned quite violent and it was cancelled. Another year it probably *should* have been cancelled, but wasn't, and canopies were blowing over, torrential rains had people's wares getting washed right out of their tents, it was quite the storm. And now this year they cancelled it in advance - which is a financial blow to the vendors as the vendor fee is non-refundable and if they had already traveled to the area on Friday they were out that money as well. I didn't know it had been cancelled until I got downtown and saw no vendors. I am told the parade went on as planned, but I went on about my day and didn't watch it. Given the intense rains I got at my house all afternoon, cancelling was probably a wise choice. But I did miss my annual fun looking at the wide variety of things available for sale.

In these not-yet-broiling days, I hope you are able to find some free time to get out and enjoy this beautiful area. Summer will be here all too soon and we will retire to our air conditioned enclosures. But until then, enjoy the beautiful weather, dodge the pollen and oak flowers falling like snow and blanketing the ground, and join us for an event for some good times, great laughs, and wonderful conversation. We had a huge turn out at the Red Robin last month, and we are always happy to add extra tables to welcome additional people.

Hope to see you soon.
