Yellow ribbon around tree song
Upon arrival at Veterans Park I found the first parking lot full. Highly unusual. That and I saw few people.
I drove on to the second parking lot and found it full except for 2 spaces. I took one.
When I stepped outside my vehicular transport I expected to hear loud human noises that would explain the full parking lots.
But, at first all I saw was a few disc golfers. And then climbing up the hill towards the first parking lot, where the Veterans Park Veterans Memorial sits, I saw the picnic pavilion overfilled with people.
And most of the surrounding trees tied with a yellow ribbon.
I think you tie a yellow ribbon around a tree when someone escapes captivity, or when you're waiting for them to escape captivity, like when yellow ribbons got tied around trees all over America when the Iranians held the American Embassy staff hostage in Tehran for way too long.
I am not sure, but I think the yellow ribbon around a tree thing started up due to an annoying Tony Orlando song.
