I just noticed that I completely forgot to make any report on our dance out at for May Day. I most o=hve lost it all in the excitement of the Pirate fest.
For anyone who may not be aware, it is a Morris custom to dance up the sun on May Day, so as to enable the return of Spring. It is one of the very few responsibilities of a Morris Man (Person).
I had a great deal of difficulty with the “band” and therefore we ended up dancing to the quiets tones of an Ipod in my pocket. This created a bit of a challenge as the volume was far too quiet and we had to rely mostly upon our humming! did I mention how desperate we are for some full-time musicians?
This was the best attendance that we have had for a Mayday. Apparently, Drunken Weasels aren’t really morning mustelids, but this year there were four of us and a small audience of two.
Even with our Band troubles we still managed to get the sun back up,, though Judy did have to help a little.
Our job here finished, we killed the old King (in the form of a loaf of bread) who we ate with jam and continue merrily off to our regular jobs…..
