Sappho has been taking some time out from her Burgeron preparations to enjoy the warm summer and all the street festivals in neighboring Bovine County towns. Although she has never known why Ma and Pa Burgeron gave her a Greek name, she has always been fascinated by antiquity and especially some of the folkdancing still preserved in the many multicultural communities across North America. The links to the ‘old country’ are palpable in dance and food.
Here is a video of Greek Day which Sappho filmed while traveling last year.
Sappho and Betsy de R. have also been digging around the Burgeron trailer off and on looking to unearth some of the Burgeron secrets and mysteries through artifact collection. Last week, they found an old tin can under one of the trees near the trailer deck. Betsy de R., ace reporter, was able to capture an image even with very little light. When Sappho saw the old tin can, she was reminded of a story Pa Burgeron always used to tell her when she was young about when he was stationed in Gozo.
