Yesterday was a very relaxing day……….. Dog walking, reading, napping, updating clients websites, more napping…you get the picture.
The fishing crew came back empty handed, although Pretty Vegas (aka – Shelly) did catch her very first fish EVER! They said that pickings were slim in their fishing spots but they had fun.
After fishing on the beach in front of the Spray Beach Inn, we decided to have an open house in the Vegas room. Needless to say cigar smoke would not have been appreciated in the room so we moved the open house down to the RV in the parking lot. We put down the awning and set up a table for the food. BTW, this was no redneck tailgate. We were eating fresh fruit, smoked salmon, cheese and crackers, hummus, and spinach dip. It was the works in a hotel parking lot. AND there was not a single hot dog or Rolling Rock on the premises and we did not pull out the grill.
Whilst enjoying good cigars, good food and good company we noticed a car inching down the street towards us. Great! We were thinking that we were going to get busted for drinking in public, having chairs in the street etc.
As the passenger side window rolled down and this elderly gentleman in a very pristine LBI shirt leaned over, I walked over to his car. I was thinking that if he needed directions, he was looking at the wrong person.
I walked up to his window and said;
Mr LBI Shirt: Do you need a few skunks.
Me: Pardon me sir, did you just say skunks?
Mr LBI Shirt: Yes, you always need skunks when your camping.
Me: Is that what we’re doing?
Mr LBI Shirt: Yes. You don’t live here and I do.
Me: Then by all means bring on the skunks. Can you bring a few raccoons too?
I’m feeling a bit like we are wearing out our welcome here with the Long Beach Island crowd. I regret that I didn’t introduce myself as Dr. Bad Pup to Mr. LBI Shirt. I wonder if he would have pulled up a chair?
