We’re leaving in the morning…. sigh…
Here in Beaufort, you can meet just about anyone. Bill and Hillary Clinton have been sighted at Hilton Head. Tom Hanks filmed a movie here, and so did a whole passle of other folks.
Beaufort is a sweet l’il ol’ southern town where they still make sweet tea from scratch and call you “honey.” It’s just a nice place to vacation.
So, it really didn’t surprise me when I ran into one of Mindy’s friends…
She had some kinda rash! She told me that a girl can get her skin really roughed up if she doesn’t use sunblock and moisturizer. Looking knowingly at my freckled, slightly pink face, she ‘llowed as how I was gonna be peeling myself in a few days.
As for the things on her back? She shrugged. She was sure SOMEONE thought it was a great pun — “bloom where you are planted. ha ha.”
And she wondered why the Beaufort Arts Council decided to make her live just a half a block away from Talbot’s, where, she noted, NO ONE with HIPS ever bothers to shop!!! As she pointed out, she was facing the other way… towards the Dairy Queen just a few blocks the OPPOSITE direction!
I like her style.
Oh… to Mindy she says, “y’all come to Beaufort any time.”
