Thanksgiving Week

Greetings from Ocracoke. As for many of our readers, this week should prove to be busy for Ocracokers also. Family and friends will be arriving on the island for Thanksgiving dinners. And visitors will be here for one last walk along the beach before the winter holidays.

I will be visiting Lou Ann for Turkey Day so I have asked Jude to keep up the journal while I am gone. As usual, several off-island friends will be staying in my house, looking after things while I am gone. I'm wondering -- why do they all like to visit while I'm gone??

While I am away Jude will be keeping you up to date on island happenings. Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers!

You can read our latest newsletter here. It's the story of two old maps (1590 & 1795) and place names on the Outer Banks.

    Must have been either a very quiet week or a very busy week, kinda like Lake Woebegone! But then, who would have time to read any postings anyway. Hope all the O'cockers had a great Thanksgiving.

    Jude is threatening to take over control of the Ocracoke Journal. The reporting this week has been outstanding! I feel almost as if I am on the island.

    Just kidding Jude! We do miss hearing from you folks. Phillip, I think you will have to fire your replacement reporter.

    Have a great day all!

    Wow, has something happened on the island? No reports in a week. I know Howard's Pub advertises something like "Ocracoke, where if the world ended today we wouldn't find our for three days..." I hope we hear something soon.

    When is Philip do back?

    At first no postings were a little humerous, strange, but humerous. But now, after more than a week, some of us dingbatters are getting concerned. Not humerous. Hope all is well with everyone.
