Greetings From Isle of Palms !


So That's Why People Pay $3M to Live Here...



This weekend was a blur... I drove back to Flotown Friday - thank God, there were no accidents this time. After laundry duty Fridat night, I got up early Saturday and cut grass and dropped fertilizer for about 5 hours, then I drove to Isle of Palms to hang out with Bobby and Jean's family at the beach. It turns out that they were already downtown in Charleston, so off I went....




I made it in time for dinner at T-Bonz on Market St. , and after a little window shopping, we made it back for Jean's birthday cake. Then bed - or so I thought. I'm used to sleeping on a couch, so a pull out sofa looked good. Unfortunately, the bars were a little hard, so I slept sideways. In the next room, the kids were asleep, and one of them can't sleep without a TV or DVD on. On it, they had an Alvin & the Chipmunks DVD looped over & over & over on a Hip-Hop song. I was going to turn the volume own, but I had no idea how, and I didn't want to wake the kids up and scare them, so I decided to just go upstairs and sleep on the couch. Needless to say, i was less than my usual chipper self the next morning...




I had a good time anyway, but others might not be able to tell I did. It was nice just to get out for a day. Here's some pics....

Sounds like a good weekend to me as I had three grandchildren three adults at the camp on Graham Slough for the weekend. It was a blast.

Salt, Earl... It was SALT !!


I thought Bobby told me it was St. Phillip's, but I don't know. It could be. I like the English cab, like you're in a Beatles movie !!
