We're not in Pamplona any more!
Here in Rugby, there are no young men eager to demonstrate their bravery. We are more mature, but still have our traditions. Sometimes they even attract a spectator or two. One such is the bi-annual walking (I said we were more mature) of the tent. Each spring my neighbor John sets up a large tent on the lawn of Christ Church-Episcopal for use during Historic Rugby, Inc.'s Festival of British and Appalachian Culture. Since the tent isn't easily set up and taken down, John rounds up some men and walks the tent the nearly half mile to his house to use at his annual Independence Day picnic.
