fun in the sun


There's this local band, see, called Lucky Scars. They're buddies of mine, part of the crew I run with. A great bar band. Well, one of them, for various reasons of his own, is calling it quits. This week, the Scars are playing their last shows with this lineup. The first one is Wednesday night down at St. Mike's Pub on Gaines Street. That'll be a hell of a good time, because the headliners are Hudson Falcons, and I hear they rock it. Plus, that's one of our home bars - there's a comfort level involved that make singing along and acting like fools just that much easier.

But, even better, the Scars got on the bill at a big local show over there in Panama City. Yep, the Redneck Riviera. Goofy golf, overpriced head shops, "Muff Diver" tshirts, and plywood condos - now with 100% more punk rock. A couple of friends and I have a room rented - we're going to have us a good ol' time on the miracle strip and then show PCB how Tally does this thing.

When are you going to PC? I might be spending a night there soon myself.
Are you going to play goofy golf?

Hey DTG,

I have been lead to your blogs through another blog... and have been waiting for you to emerge again with a new post.

Although I don't always have time to comment, I want to tell you that I truly enjoy your writing. (I especially loved the Bush rant on one of the older ones.) I laughed out loud! It was so right on. It made me fantasize about how fun it would be to hear a news anchor saying it!

Thanks for your posts and ya'll have fun at the beach.

Mama: this weekend, Friday through Sunday. I wish, but I don't even know if it's open!

Jesster: Talla-WUT?-hassee!

PF: Glad you found me! I post in bursts. Like mom says, I have other homes on the wide wide interweb.

Yep, and it's a good excuse to get drunk and yell.
