You never know what to expect on Ocracoke. Yesterday I was invited out, with a handful of friends, for an early evening dinner. It was a simple and informal affair, typical of Ocracoke -- sloppy joes, potato salad, coleslaw, and deviled eggs. We took our dessert, bowls of ice cream, into the living room, and sat around chatting, telling stories & sharing jokes. Before long four of the men began singing and harmonizing. The dulcet tones of "Sweet Adeline," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart," "My Wild Irish Rose," and other Barbershop Quartet songs filled the house. Later, we all joined in on a number of Broadway Musical tunes.
