A Week Away From Blogging, And Oh What A Week It Was!

Sometimes it is said that the simplest things in life bring the most pleasure, and this past week certainly supports that cliche. I have made the most of the every-other-week off rotation of a midnight shift pharmacist this week. My good buddy Don, who lives on James Island, and I hosted a couple of very special guests this weekend, my brother from Chicago, and Don's good friend and my brothers old college chum from Branson, Missouri. Golf, dining and fun was the order, not necessarily in that order.

Some of the many "highlights" of the week included, of course, some great Lowcountry golf courses, and a couple of equally great dining spots. Not to name drop but Coosaw Creek, Wild Dunes Links and Crowfield Plantation come to mind sprinkled in with a little Morgan Creek Grill and Genaro's Italian Restaraunt. And of course, our annual night out on James Island at Don's house for Frogmore Stew, aka Lowcountry Boil. Don and his lovely bride always roll out the red carpet and it is said that everybody has at least one thing they do very well, and Don's gift is Frogmore Stew, err... along with turkey hunting/guiding, fishing, artwork, joke-telling, spoiling grandchildren, etc. etc. etc....

But, like all good things, such as my 7 nights off, it had to end and guests were dropped off at the Charleston International Airport and today lives are back to their usual mundane self, that is as usual and mundane as life can be in The Land of Palm Trees. Wherever you are today, Chicago, Branson or in a kayak on a tidal creek somewhere on James Island like my good friend Lisa from Charleston Treasures, have a GREAT day.
