yankee doodle days

When I brought T to NOLA for the first time, we went for the wedding of an old friend. One of the bridesmaids (another old friend) pounced upon T seeing as he was the first boy I ever brought home. She introduced herself politely as most Southern women do and then said, "You must be a Democrat if you're dating [ms. nola]. I'm going to call you Yankee Doodle!"

So in certain circles, T is known as Yankee Doodle. I found it highly amusing that this poster (found in Shelburne Falls) celebrated Yankee Doodle Days. If only we could have gone. Maybe T would have gotten some free funnel cake.
