Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the golden sun laden, brisk, breezy, island of Nantucket! Good to be with you on this Monday, early evening, ’round dusk, broadcasting LIVE from ‘down on the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor; The Tenth Day of October, 2016.
Today was “The Barnacle’s” last day this year, and everything on the menu was a buck…
Only in America folks!
The Barnacle is a little hamburger, hot dog, fish and chips kind of place that is right on the beach, well across the street from Nantucket Sound on ‘Craigville Beach Road’, conveniently located on this beautiful stretch of sand, the very popular Craigville Beach and this equally famous fish shack, opening it’s doors in 1951. Way, way back then, before “the big bang”, The President of the United States was none other than Harry S. Truman and the nifty fifties and all of the soul crushing–just ask “Rebel Without a Cause” star James Dean, a few years later in 1955, he’ll tell ya!–conformism that went hand in hand with the ’square’ clean cut look was just beginning; “the baby boom” exploding coast to coast…. Although President Truman had his detractors, no one ever said to him in a nationally televised debate:
“…because you’d be in jail.”

“Lies, lies and more lies! Can I just tell ‘yous ‘dis, no please, at least I’m honest about my various movements, especially when it comes to dames in distress regarding furniture, ’cause ‘dat is sacred to me and for Christ’s sake, it was 2005. Ancient history and again, it was just locker room talk with some sleazy entertainment show, what do you want from me? An apology? I’m sorry to all ‘da women out ‘der who can’t take a joke… I already gave one, jeez, it’s like these broads have never heard this stuff before. Take a quote from one of my favorite films a few years back, see if you know who this is, it’s a classic: “…Hi there sweet heart, you must have been something before electricity, how would you like to make $14 the hard way?” I mean is that hilarious or what? You have to credit ‘dat fabulous King of Comedy Rodney Dangerfield in the very funny 1980 film “Caddyshack”, the same year this insane country of sheep elected a B actor by the name of Ronald Reagan whose real boss, among many, many others, i.e. his VP, was Donald Regan, Wall Street tycoon with Merrill Lynch who just happened to become the U.S.Treasury Secretary, oh ‘the irony! Follow the Money folks… God Bless ‘dat Rodney though, may he rest in peace,
he just kills me…”
Have a nice week ahead matey!
PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
