    I really think a bocce ball tounrament on top of the uke festival would qualify us as the Austin of the Mid-Atlantic.

    party ends early so the old folks can catch the early bird specials at Bob Evans.

  • Chuck Morningwood

    And somewhere over the rainbow, Tiny Tim is tip-toeing through the tulips.
