Bashful Fun

While Bashful was on vacation with mom/dad at Tybee Island, he had the best of time.  Do you remember that little breakfast place that mom/dad liked so much called The Breakfast Club?  Well, Bashful fell in love with it as well.  He wanted to get a job there so he could stay on the island forever.  He went for an interview but well he didn’t talk too much and there really wasn’t a need for a traveling international stone so he didn’t get the busboy job – darn.

So instead he overlooked the kitchen help at the grill as they prepared mom/dad’s meal the last morning they were on vacation.  Don’t let his stoic look fool you.  He was worse than Gordon Ramsey from Hell’s Kitchen to those workers at the grill – snorts.  But he finally did whip them into shape and mom/dad got their wonderfully delicious breakfast.  It was a sad breakfast knowing it would be some time before their next return.

After that heavenly breakfast, everyone decided to walk down the streets of Tybee one more time for memories sake.

Bashful got a little freaked out when he saw this picture of a shark on the side of the building.

Heck, he rolled like an avalanche back into mom’s pocket so fast that her shorts almost fell down – now that would have been a sight!

But Bashful didn’t have anything to fear – it was just a giant shark advertising a business.  A business that I might add had some wonderful trinkets and fun things in it from the beach.

Yep, that mom of mine – she likes to shop – snorts.

And of course, no good-bye is complete without walking down the pier and telling the ocean farewell.

Bashful went a little too far though.  He threatened to jump if mom/dad didn’t stay just one more day longer on their trip.  Well heck, what could they do?  They couldn’t have Bashful jumping off the pier – he can’t swim!  He sinks… like the Titanic.  The poor thing – I never taught him a fundamental important thing like swimming.  And mom, she couldn’t go in after him, she can’t swim either!

So, they had to do what they had to do.  Stay one more night. Way to go Bashful.  I wonder if I threaten to jump off the couch, would I get my way in anything?  hhhmm – I’m off to practice before mom gets home 🙂

Foodie Pictures

You all should know by now that I am a hardcore foodie. You ever wonder where I get that from? My mom and dad of course – snorts. Now those humans know how to snarf. They ate some wonderful food last week on vacation at Tybee Island. And of course, they took pictures to share with me. I’m passing them along. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. 🙂

I know a lot of you know who Paula Deen is – she is southern gold here in the south. Mom and dad try to go to her restaurant every time they visit. She has an awesome southern buffet bar. This is a picture of moms plate from The Lady and the Sons.
Her buffet has everything – greens, Mac and cheese, sweet potatoes, rice, mashed potatoes, baked and fried chicken and BBQ just to name a few. And they had buttermilk cheese biscuits.

Mommy said daddy even had two hoes – hoe cakes that is – snorts.  I told you they get into trouble unattended!

What you might not know is that Paula Deen has a brother who also has a restaurant. His restaurant is called Uncle Bubbas. Mom and dad went to his restaurant one night as well. His restaurant goes towards more seafood which is something you kind of crave at the sea, right? Mommy always gets the same thing – shrimp and grits. She says it’s totally awesome and loves it. Daddy always gets the full Bubba which has a little bit of everything. 20131027-185717.jpg20131027-185731.jpg

Mom and dad said a couple of years ago they even met Uncle Bubba. They have a picture somewhere. I’ll have to find it. When they met him, Uncle Bubba asked mom what she did for a living. Daddy told him that she was a big girl stripper. I’m not sure what that is but Uncle Bubba seemed totally smitten with it.

They also loved the food at a local breakfast place called The Breakfast Club. Mom would have coffee on the balcony at their hotel room watching the sun come up over the ocean and then they would walk down to this restaurant. This is an absolute favorite place to eat. It’s almost like a dive from the outside but inside the smells make your tummy start rumbling for some food. The first day they went, dad had to get eggs benedict and mom got chops. That picture scared me at first until she explained it was a different type of oinker. Still scary though – shivers. And mom says this restaurant is the only place that knows how to do hash browns proper…well done and crispy. You judge.

So what do you think of these food pictures so far? There’s so much more to share later. I’m so excited to share those with you – more tomorrow my friends.
