Hold Tight

Yeah, I'm talking about The Andrews Sisters' song about seafood. That's what I'm eating this week: fresh seafood.

The Southern Indiana Writers Group was granted a week's free stay at one of the Mermaid Cottages on Tybee Island, Georgia for a writers' retreat. We are there, now. I hope we don't create a crustacean shortage, but it is what it is.

It's like this:

Humans and human-types have been feasting on crustaceans since prehistoric times. Well, come to that, non-human types have, too. BUT THE POINT IS, prehistoric middens are filled with the shells and bones of sea creatures nommed with probable delight by our distant ancestors.

So picture, if you will, four writers fighting over who gets to be Patty, Maxine and Laverne and who has to clap out the rhythm as we sing and eat instead of writing the whole time.

Catch you on the flip side!
