Forgive the Jersey-ism you’re about to read, but I think I speak for the whole family when I say that we are so thankful to be goin’ down the shore tonight!! Yup, we’re playing hooky on Friday and scoring ourselves a four day weekend at the Osiecki family’s bungalow by the bay!
Now before you go on getting all jealous, please keep in mind that the bungalow is tiny. Like a two car garage tiny. And it’s crammed right in there, not 10 feet away from the bungalows next door. And there’s no cable…or satellite…or TiVo.
But, that’s OK, because you know what? What the bungalow’s got is comic books, crab traps, boogie boards, and a whole lot of memories. It’s got character, it’s got charm, and it’s got location, location, location. 2 blocks from the ocean, half a block from the bay–could it get better than that? Tennis courts around the corner, Surf Taco on the main drag, happy people kicking back and taking it easy–it’s got everything I’d ever need.
You’re not jealous now, are you?
Thanks Mom and Dad for keeping the place afloat. Thanks Linda, for watching Wesley (our dachshund) while we’re gone. Thanks kids, for walking with me even when your feet hurt. Thanks Craig, for making my place yours too. Most of all, thanks Grandpa, for carving out a vacation place for us–4 generations so far (Happy Birthday, by the way–we sure do miss you, man!).
