HAPPY NEW YEAR!
One can only hope as we turn raisin that we just did the best we could with what we had available at the time. At this point in my own personal experience I just want to try to be a better person with the passing of each year … nah! Y’all are stuck with same old me!
So on that happy note, let’s make some great resolutions and break them repeatedly and daily. Why bother if you can’t fail or succeed? I will not quit drinking or smoking until I’m ready and the turn of the calendar page has little regard on my willpower or state of mind. When I want to lose weight I will (but, probably no) and furthermore, I will speak my mind more and not bite my tongue. If one can’t say it when it’s wildly inappropriate, why bother saying it all? Alright, I’m done.
I have to take this moment to relate a hilarious problem that occurred. Taxi Tales keyboard refused to type the letter ‘o’ so in the haste to get the article in on time, Taxi Tales used the number 0. I am not even going to lie, I couldn’t even read the story without wanting to throw up - the vertigo was just overwhelming. So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Margie for literally taking one for the team. You are the rock that keeps us all tethered to shore vs. floating away in random flotsam and jetsam. Ron, please get a new keyboard for sanity purposes.
I adore the Traveling Beachcomber and love love seeing y’all travel worldwide and drag this book with you! This month’s winner is Alan Robertson in South Africa with (from L to R) Tembo (not from Tybee), Kay Fortner, Kim Robertson, Alan Robertson and Perb Fortner. What an awesome picture!!! Off we go to A-J’s (I mean you, but I want to go too)! Thanks for rocking that pic Tembo!
On a closing note, I want to say that the Tybee Beachcomber ALWAYS strives to be fun and entertaining, as well as provide information and good times on our little rock. Apparently one of our articles in the last edition was not well received by one or more readers associated with its subject. To them, and to anyone else we might not sit quite right with on occasion, we extend our humblest apologies. Occasionally, things are said that may not be copacetic with all and perhaps may be hurtful. That is never our intent and we like to think all stories are taken with a grain of salt followed by a shot of tequila and a twist of lime! We thank all of our readers for their support and have nothing but love for our extended Tybee family.
On that note, go get me a drink and let’s read on...
