Our Coconut Telegraph:

I've always liked this song ... it's what goes on all over the world in small towns. Gossip. I think of my blog as "all the celebration", and sometimes on Facebook you get "all the stress". I try to "celebrate the positive portions of everyday life" here, and think of this blog as an online newsletter for my family and friends. I appreciate everybody who stops by to take a look ... especially those of you who don't even know us and still keep coming back to see what we are up to! I'd sure like to hear from you, my dear readers. I do know that my daughter, stepdaughter, niece, my friend in Portland and my friend in Leaburg check in regularly; sometimes my sister, sometimes my mom, sometimes my husband, and sometimes my mother-in-law, but who else reads this? Inquiring minds want to know. Please leave your first name and city at the bottom of this post under the comments section, if you feel like it. Thanks! :>)

Jimmy Buffett

Tuesday on the island
Not much goin' on
The parties are all over
They ended just past dawn

But the jungle drums are beating
With the tales from late last night
Cause the stories bear repeating
For everyones delight

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph
Can't keep nothin' under their hat
You can hear 'em on the coconut telegraph
Sayin' who did dis and dat
Dis and dat dis and dat

Now I'm not one to deal in gossip
But was he that big of fool?
To do a belly buster high dive
And miss the entire pool?

Now what's the word on sweet Melissa?
And the kid nobody knew
Did Ricardo ever find her?
I swear it's just between me and you

You can hear it on the coconut telegraph
By now everybody knows
You can hear it on the coconut telegraph
Just who comes and goes
Comes and goes comes and goes

It's humpday on the island
And the lines have all gone dead
All the juicy news is history
I guess everything's been said

But when the eagle flies on Friday
And the boys break out the rum
Then the joint begins to jumpin'
And you'll hear those hot lines hum

Put it on the coconut telegraph
All the celebration and the stress
Put it on the coconut telegraph
In twenty-five words or less
