Tourists dropping in for a visit. And, not much to write about.

Nice, calm weekend here on the Redneck Riviera.  Tourists can be annoying, irritating, and many times just plain dangerous.

Typically, they ride around in cars and trucks, barefeet propped up on the dash, camera-phone gripped in one or both hands, lost to the real world.  There’s a comfort in knowing what to look for, and avoid.

Well, yesterday a couple of them tried a new approach.  They fell semi-controlled right outta the sky.

Never a dull moment.  The story is here  CONTROLLED CRASH  on the WJHG website.

I needed some content.  Got it.  I’ll mark this one done.

Beautiful Friday morning here on the Redneck Riviera.

Tourist development hates the “Redneck Riviera” handle, but if the boot fits, right?  Enjoying the Winter calm before the late February onslaught of projectile vomiting, booze-addled, drug-fueled Spring Breakers.  It’s a gorgeous 60-degrees out there.  I believe I’ll take a break from “in-here,” and get “out-there.”

We’ve had some major rule changes in Bay County for Spring Break 2016.  Good for those of us that live here year-round, not so good for college students looking to wreak havoc during their week off in paradise.  The old adage, “Come on vacation, leave on probation” is in full force this year.
