Who knows, but he may think about majoring in journalism in college and become a reporter or even a baseball commentator! Writing for a local paper is really great experience!

The reporter for the paper doesn't know baseball at all and it is good experience for Ethan. It can be awkward writing the weekly team story while playing for the same team but he has managed it so far.

I wonder what Brad is doing July 2015? Maybe he and his band could be our entertainment, LOL!

I am just smiling as I read this, CAH! Our cat flops, too. The only time she gets excited is when she is hungry and wants to be fed!

He really is a very lovable kitty. I call him my rag doll, he just flops in my arms when I pick him up.

Not that it's a bad name, but it sounds more like country music. We do play a few country songs, but we're mostly beach music & southern rock.

Here's picture of us playing a festival on River Street in Savannah a few years ago.
