Konfirmationstid

Skrevet af Tante Olga - 2022-05-04 10:18:08

Denne weekend var der konfirmation i MacAles lokaler og temaet var Fodbold og  Brøndby IF.

Konfirmanden og en god del af selskabet var store fans, hvorfor de havde opdækket lokalet i blå og gule farver, samt meget opfindsomme borddekorationer. Farverne kunne godt sende tankerne et helt andet sted hen.

Der var medtaget egne kager med til kaffen og det så rigtig godt ud.

En god dag med et dejligt selskab. Som kuriosum kan nævnes, at faderen og moderen til konfirmanden begge holdte deres konfirmation hos Tante Olga. Hvor tiden da går.
Fredag aften/nat var der mange gæster hos Tante Olga grundet festivalen for Verdensmålene – fuld fart hele natten… og lørdagen var også heftig.

1. maj mødte mange op til Brunch Buffet hos MacAle, - de fik en god start på ”kampdagen” og efterfølgende forrygende forårsvejr. Nogen tog vist til fodbold på stadion og fik en fantastisk oplevelse.

Vore venner fra Tottenham DK var på plads til endnu en afgørende kamp mod Leicester FC, der faldt positivt ud for Tottenham -  det peger frem mod Arsenalkampen den 12. maj, hvor det hele sikkert afgøres. Tante Olga gør klar til den helt store aften foran skærmen, hvor der forventes stort rykind.

Forårets kommen er skønt, men det ville blive meget bedre om krigen i Ukraine kunne få ende.

Dette ønske overskygger alt.

WAR (1969 Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong)

Oh no-there's got to be a better way
Say it again
There's got to be a better way-yeah
What is it good for? (war)

Man has a sense for the discovery of beauty
How rich is the world for one who makes you for us to show
Beauty must have power over man, war

After the end of the war I want to devote myself
To my thoughts for five to ten years and to writing them down
War has caused unrest among the younger generation
Induction then destruction, who wants to die?
Wars come and go what remains are only the values of culture
Then of course there is revolutionary love
Love of comrades fighting for the people and love of people
Not an abstract people but people one meets and works with
When Che Guevara taught of love being
At the center of revolutionary endeavor, he meant both
For people like Che or George Jackson or Malcolm X
Love was the prime mover of their struggle
That love cost them their lives, love coupled with a man's pride
Love coupled with a man's pride
Give it to you on top, now

War, I despise 'cause it means destruction of innocent lives
War, means tears to thousands of mothers how
When their sons go off to fight and lose their lives
I said, war, good god, now, what is it good for?
Absolutely, nothing
Say it again, war, what is it good for?
Absolutely, nothing, listen to me
War, it ain't nothing but a heart breaker
War, friend only to the undertaker, war
War, what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it, war, good god now, what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, say it, (war)
Oh no, there's got to be a better way
Say it again, there's got to be a better way
Yeah, what is it good for?
War, what is it good for?
