For so many years, my Sundays have been full... Yet even now after 2 months of travel, I miss the routine of so many years... I have to admit, I don't miss it enough to go back... just miss it...
This week was very busy. Our friends Bill and Maryann came from Philadelphia to visit for few days. We had a ball. They arrived with a bolt of fabric we had ordered and 2 Philly Cheese-steaks! No one makes Philly Cheese-steaks like the folks in Philadelphia....
The day they arrived Shelley cooked roast potatoes, and a whole chicken in the solar oven. It tasted AMAZING! and cost us NOTHING to produce in terms of energy... Just a sunny day and 4 hours on the fore deck...
On Tuesday, we took Maryann & Bill to all the very cool tourist traps in Myrtle Beach. We went on the Humongous Ferris wheel called "The Sky Wheel". The view was awesome...
After that we went to a souvenir place that was around since the time I was a kid called, "The Gay Dolphin" This place was to original place to get tacky souvenirs of Myrtle Beach. Nowadays you can find places like this one on almost every corner, but these guys were the original... They are still in business today!
Anyway, I was on a mission to resolve a childhood issue that I have carried with me since I was a young boy... As you know my name is "Kyle", which today is a fairly common name. In the 1990's it was ranked as high as 18th in terms of popularity. However, in 1961, the year I was born, it ranked 232..... Which meant that NO ONE named their kid Kyle back then.... I knew my parents had it in for me when we went to The Gay Dolphin back in the early 1970's and there was a wall with literally thousands of licence plates for bicycles with kids names on them.... Missing of course, was KYLE!!!! Anyway, to make a very long story short, on Tuesday we found the very same wall, only this time we FOUND MY NAME!!!! My world is now complete....
