Much Ado About Notung:
In Wagner’s Ring Cycle, the third opera is about a lad named Seigfreid. In Act I, he forges a magical sword called Notung. Act II – slays the dragon; act III gets the girl. I have a t-shirt that depicts a sword, probably not historically correct, as the hilt on the t-shirt looks like a Scottish thing, and what that’s doing in Norse mythology isn’t exactly clear. The caption is play on themes, a classical pun, as it were, “Much ado about Notung.”
I was wearing that T when I left El Paso.
Sunday night was a treat. State Line BBQ. Just outside, a nice sign:
