Toes in the sand (and thankful for a warm, albeit virtual, beach… we’re looking at a high of 55 for the next week or so); Guinness me please!

I liked that one. Count me ashore, please, with a day late/dollar short Cinco de Mayo margarita. (With apologies for echoing Beth in our near-simultaneous posts.)

Clever, and a breeze, at least compared to some other Gaffney's. Now luxuriating in the tropical breeze on the beach.
