Horseshoe crab pirate

We were at Tybee Island in Georgia for a week, and Tammy spotted this pirate, perhaps left over from Hallowe'en.

Note the excellent use of beach detritus, in this case the shell of a horseshoe crab.

DJ is 80!

Today is January 11, 2012, which means that my remarkable mother, Donna Jean Dreyer, is 80 years old. Here she is at Tybee Island, Georgia, blowing out the candles on her birthday pancakes.

Happy New Year, y'all

Thanks to everyone who helped put on and everyone who attended and everyone who couldn't attend and everyone who didn't want to attend but thought something nice about the thirtieth iteration of the fabulous Dreams Die Hard Diner--here to serve you once a year, since January 1, 1983.
