Happy Fourth y’all!! Driving around the roads of our beautiful marshlands, I wondered – ‘How do you lose a sofa out of the back of your truck??!?’ – well, over time I’ve seen mattresses, a stove, countless Rubbermaid trash bins (I’ve stopped and picked up a few), recliner chairs and so on. The lowcountry… just one big trash dump I guess?? Well, Folly is getting ready for the big party weekend that is upon us, fireworks, cookouts and music all week long. The Island Duo - Thurs @ The Crab Shack,  7-10p. Keep in mind, if you live on the island, it might be easier to walk or ride your bike to get around. Just be careful in the crosswalks – seems that law doesn’t apply to all drivers… just the out-of-state ones. Coming up in July: Ray Lamontagne Jul 16; John Hiatt & The Combo and The Robert Cray Band July 25; Crosby, Stills & Nash August 12; Bob Weir & Ratdog Aug 22; Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band to name a few. You can see who else is listed by clicking (or cliquing) here If your already getting a little antsy w/all the traffic to & fro the island, just mention the Budweiser Bikini Bash over at The Windjammer – Sundays @ 6p thru August 2. Maybe that’ll alleviate some of the traffic?? Also before I sign off… don’t forget to vote for T-Rav… c’mon… you know you want him for our US Senate… maybe he’ll take a hike on the Appalachian Trail too..?.. Remember  - The Grill has their Farmer's Market every Weds starting @ 5p. Loggerheads will be hosting an all day event for Surfer's Healing, Sat Aug 16 from 11a - 6p. Starr Acheson, The Shakin' Martinis and Jeff Houts are a few of the musician's lined up for that day. We'll update the list as soon as it's firmed-up. One of the items being raffled off is a golf cart, tickets are $25 each, you can contact Ms Allison Burbage @ (843) 834-5898 for tix & details. Also every Sunday Jazz @ The Grill from 5-8p, hosted by the lovely and talented Starr Acheson with a host of rotating musicians. Don't say we didn't tell you so. Sushi by Lisa is Tues thru Fri at The Drop In, it's magnifico!! As always, thank you so much for coming out, being there and hanging with us, y'all ROCK and weYya baby!!! FaceBook us!! Ciao' y'all!! Now, one last reminder kids… just like the directions say: Light and Get Away.” Have fun and be safe!!

The old couple was planning to go on a second honeymoon for their 50th wedding anniversary.
The old woman said, "We will go to all the same places that we did on our first honeymoon."
"Uh huh," said the old man.
"We will do all the things that we did on our first honeymoon," said the old woman.
"Uh huh," said the old man.
"And we will make love like we did on our first honeymoon," said the old woman.
"That's right," said the old man, "except this time I get to sit on the side of the bed and cry, 'It's too big, it's too big!'"
