Well, here we go again! All the pretty horses are rolling onto the sandy pavement on Panama City Beach- I hear them rumbling a few streets over as I type. It's daytime- this is not an unwelcome sound to most... Continue reading

So yesterday morning- clear, warm, blue- I was running (in the car) fast as I could to Publix and to pick up an eyeglass prescription, before the Spring Break traffic became impassable. I was approaching the Joan Avenue/North Lagoon intersection,... Continue reading

Yes, it's that time again! Sprong Break is Sprung! Krazy kids doing what we've been doing for a number of years- and then some, I'm sure- but the only time I ever see them is in the middle of the... Continue reading

Our sympathy goes out to the Renfro family, of Fayetteville. I went to school with them, and it's sad to see a little more of our beautiful post-war dream pass away. I would love to see the photo album Mr.... Continue reading
