Travel Week: What I Did On My Summer Vacation

It’s “TRAVEL WEEK”
here on the world’s
least famous blog !

Why?

How in the hell
should I know-
it just is.

Get with the
program, man.

Ahem.

It’s hard to explain,
but when you’re a
Southerner visiting
certain places Up Nawth,
you sometimes get the
feeling that your
North Carolina plate
or accent is getting
you nothing but dirty
looks and a hard time.

We pride ourselves
down here
at giving
visitors a heapin’
helpin of hospitality —

But it ain’t
always
that way for us .

Awwww…

I’m probably just
imagining things.

I mean, that guy
in the gas station
near Thuro,
Massachusetts
didn’t just ask
me in a mock
Southern accent
whether I had
lost my mule,
did he?

Alas,
yes, he did.

Funny?

The only thing
funny about it
was him thinking
I wouldn’t crush
his skull for him –
which turned out
to be right- but
he had no way of
knowing I don’t get
mad in front of the
family.

And we had 12 days
just like that there.

Oh, lovely.

I think that’s where
Sister Mary Elephant
was from, too.

I did enjoy the
glass museum in
Sandwich……
actually a nice
little town.

Anyhoo —
many folks like
spending time on
Cape Cod , so for
them , I say
Have At It ” –
the beaches aren’t
that great, the folks
aren’t that friendly,
and you can’t find a
decent meal on the
whole damn peninsula.

And so to
paraphrase
something
I always say at
the Sunday
dinner table when
someone declines
seconds —
“MFM –
more for me
well….
“More For Them”.

!!! HOY !!!
