Mom and Dad are Leaving

Mom and Dad are going away again, to Austin.  They're leaving me here with the new sociopath hillbilly cat.  Uncle John's coming over to stay with us, but he's not going to get up at 4 AM and save me when the hillbilly gets on a psycho tear at 4 AM.  I don't like it.

I told them that the stupid cat was outside, but I didn't count on him MOVING IN.  The other ferals know their place.  Robert, the former feral, he stayed outside and kept his distance.

Coastal Kitchen - St. Simons Island

Coastal Kitchen Restaurant, St. Simons

Coastal Kitchen is a reliable favorite for people on the island.  It is one of the few restaurants in the area that combines good food with a view of the water.

Corsair Restaurant Jekyll

Jekyll Island Restaurant: Corsair

This is like a lot of St. Simons/Jekyll Island restaurants - reasonably good, but not something you would wake up and lust after. 

Little Neal: My Dad's Gone

it's me, Little Neal.  My Dad's dog sitting across town.  I miss him.  It's not the same without him here.  

Corsair Restaurant Jekyll

Corsair Restaurant

This is a pretty restaurant, looking out on the beach and a swimming pool.

The food's good enough, but nothing to write home about.  We had some fried brussel sprouts and fish.  New restaurant, maybe they'll up their game.  And, as I said, beautiful location. 

Little Neal

It's me, Little Neal.  I'm thinking of using this photo for my GQ cover. What do you think?

When you've got it, you can't hide it.
