Intolerance of Minstrels in Aftermath of Ike



One of the funniest things I saw in my neighborhood after Ike passed through was the sign that one of the residents at the front of the subdivision posted. He had a large piece of plywood with a spraypainted message on it, “You Lute, We Shoot!” Seriously. I would not lie to you.

I saw it and remarked to my youngest daughter that the guy must be really intolerant of traveling musicians from the fifteenth century. I could see Sting wandering by with his new instrument of choice, playing a nice bourreƩ.

“BANG, BANG! You dang minstrel, get your lute off of my front lawn, the sign is fair warning!”

My girl gave me a great gift; she laughed really hard.

I couldn’t help it.

That was funny! When our neighbor was putting boards on his windows they were spray painted with Ike Take a Hike. I saw Sting in concert on T.V. trying to reinvent hiself with his renaissance man songs. What a bunch of crap!

Hey, the Invigilator family survived the storm too. Damage was not too bad; I had the Ash trees cut down last year. Best move I've made in years; otherwise they'd be in my living room right now.

Congrats to the Invigilators! So glad you and yours avoided unwanted arboreal houseguests!

Well not quite so on the houseguests. I said I had MY trees cut last year, but my neighbor didn't....we got HIS trees on our house, but the damage can be quickly repaired. The fence suffered a worse fate. But I'm not complaining that's for sure.
