Not long ago, as I was visiting with friends, my eleven year old grandson, Lachlan, stopped by with an impish grin on his face. He came to recite a limerick he had composed. When he was finished we all cracked up.

This is the limerick:

There once was a king named Tyrone
Who loved to sit down on the throne.
When requested to flush,
He said, "What's the rush?"
"I'm playing my built-in trombone!"

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is Allie (Teenie) Scott's 1968 story of Simon Garrish, Jr. and the US Life-Saving horse, Sambo. You can read it by clicking here:
