  1. I’ve asked for a gift certificate to Schmoopys but I don’t think I’m getting it, lol. Looks like a fun time. Did you really think you would get Termite to dance???

  2. What fun! Something else to put on the list. I know this – I’m going to need a couple of months’ lead time to get myself back in dancing shape. The past summer and fall just wasn’t good – too much sitting around for too many reasons.

    My self-education is continuing. I just found out who Tee Jules is – my goodness, there’s a fellow who can tell a story “right nice”, as we used to say up home. 😉

  3. Well, just looking at the photos had my toes tapping to the beat I was hearing in my head! I’d play the “Washboard” if I’d been there. I think it would be so much fun!

    • The regulars were just so cordial to us and even gave us each a music CD of the band to take home. Oh, and they had Heather sign their guest book! The cover charge is $3 and you don’t have to buy anything to eat or drink if you don’t want to!

  4. I love to hear about places called Jolly somethings. Well its very jolly arorund here. All the kids are about to bust, today was the last day of school and Santa should watch his hiding places very carefully. I hope you and yours have a holly jolly Christmas and a wonderful New Year. Your Jolly North Carolinian Cyrena Jolly

    • I’ve missed our emails, Cyrena. Been busy? Of course you have! So good to hear from you, and I’m glad you enjoyed the post! Merry Christmas to you and the boys. Please tell them for me, will you? (and your folks!)

  5. Good to know they are leaving Monday nights open for my cigar box band. You know some people are just born leaders…

    Tomorrow starts the building process.

    Gonna toss together a 2 string tub bass thing for the Darth Wader guy eventually.

    • Yep, folks down here are pretty friendly! How did you find this blog, Phil? Do you recall? You’re in one estuary system–you in another. We ship a lot of blue crab up there, too! I see from your blog you like hunting waterfowl? There are a couple youth waterfowl stories around here somewhere you might enjoy! Thanks for stopping by! BW

  6. It has been years since I was on a dance floor! I loved it too. Enjoyed the column and the photos. Termite looks like he is slimming up some. I can’t say much though, since my grandson went on a growth spurt the past year. He went from a couple of inches shorter than me to being able to walk up and prop his chin on top of my head!! And skinny as a rail too. It is a family trait from his moms side. Our family genes like a bit of fat on the bones.:)

    Christmas prep is mega behind. Too much to do and too short a time to do it in. Oh well, it will get done hopefully by Sunday evening.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to everyone.

    • They might have done that while I was out picking up Termite, and she would be too shy/quiet to tell me!!! I’m going to have to call her as she has not said one word about this post. That’s odd. Thanks for the holiday wishes, and I know you will enjoy Christmas with your boys (all 3)!!!

  7. What fun! I think my foot started tapping, just reading about it.

    Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    P.S. You’re really not going to make Shore and her friend sleep in the shed with the pirogue, are you? LOL

    • Thank you for the holiday wishes, Gue! I’m not sure where you got the idea that Shore and company might be sleeping with the pirogue? Nah, I’d let them sleep usptairs, lol! Merry Christmas!
