Tent Village, Ocean Grove. July 29,  2017. By Paul Goldfinger, Blogfinger.net ©

By Paul Goldfinger, Editor @Blogfinger.net

It must be great fun to be a kid living in a tent during an Ocean Grove summer.  Instead of bicycles to zoom around the sidewalks of the Village,  there are now skateboards and scooters.

I saw a teenager coasting down Mt. Hermon Way on a skateboard, in her gravity defying short shorts, maintaining her decorum all the while speaking on a cell phone.  It is certain—-someday she will have a tattoo, and her parents will approve.   This is the new look of femininity.

But the Village girl, on her scooter, shows no sign of becoming anything but a proper young lady.

JUDY GARLAND    from The Wizard of Oz.

“Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh, why can’t I?

“If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow.
Why, oh, why can’t I?”

Rain + Sun = Rainbow.

8 pm 7/1/17: over Warrington fire site.
Is this a positive omen?

Editor’s note:  Another good omen would be if the town demands single family houses at that Warrington site.  After all, that is what is happening next door at the Park View site and it is what the Master Plan asks for.

And look at the yellow/red roof beauty down the block on Seaview Avenue—the anchor for a lovely residential neighborhood?

Music for a good omen by Emilio de Benito (guitarist).

It is “Granada” from Woody’s film Vicky Cristina Barcelona:

ANITA O’DAY

“Ah, the apple trees,
Blossoms in the breeze,
That we walked among,
Lying in the hay,
Games we used to play,
While the rounds were sung,
Only yesterday, when the world was young.”

Purple Galinule. By Bob Bowné

“Hey…thought your readers would find this to be fun….

“This Purple Gallinule has been hanging out in the yard here, down at the beach for the last four days.
He is native of Florida area according to The Audubon Society…so he must be here on a Victorian vacation.
Check out those yellow chicken legs!”
—Bob
Y. RADIER   It’s a tango  “La Paloma.”

Ocean Grove Tent City. Photo by Jean Bredin, Blogfinger staff ©. 5/11/17.

Jean says, “The little paths between the rows of tents are quaint.
You walk down, and there’s the Great Auditorium in all her splendor.

“They soon will be occupied, and personal touches will embellish each tent.
It won’t be long now.”

RICKY NELSON    from the movie soundtrack of Pulp Fiction.  Tent City is a lonesome town until the occupiers begin to show up on May 15.   Then it springs to life—it is a community within a community having its own rhythms and even its own customs. Kids love it there. By June 1, it is  no longer a lonesome town.  —-PG
