Bill stopped by late yesterday afternoon just as Lou Ann and I were ready to snap fresh green beans that Al had brought us from his garden. There we were, sitting in our rockers and porch swing, snapping the ends off the beans, when two island visitors strolled down the lane.
We were pure Americana, and I just couldn't resist. "Would you like to take our photo?" I called out.
The couple stopped and chuckled. "I'm guessing you want to charge us a fee!" the man teased.
"Actually, that's a great idea," we countered. "Quick," I said to Lou Ann, "put on Aunt Tressie's slat bonnet. They won't be able to resist."
Unfortunately, our visitors didn't have a camera. What were they thinking...walking down our sandy lane without a camera?
Oh well. It was a missed opportunity. Too bad for them!
