Simon says...odd or even...

Me and "Motocycle Mama" were fooling around on "Webbie's" bike when MM suddenly cranked up the Honda and took us tearing into the wind...
As my eyes were blinking in the rush of fresh air I reminded MM that we didn't have helmets...
MM said..."we're heading to "Hollywood at the Beach" ... you don't need 'em"
Well, we weren't in South Carolina then but at the rate MM was gassing it... we'd be there soon (LOL)

By the time we hit Myrtle the weather was great...
and it was BIKER WEEK!
It was really hazy, though... must have been all the smoke.
Did I mention it was BIKERS WEEK!
I suggested we find my sister's place and chill for the night. I didn't have a clue where she lived but apparently the local bikers knew "The Tree House"...
I didn't quite understand the "Tree" thing but we followed anyway.

"Oh, the tree house"... I get it it.

I forgot my sister's place had trees with mugs

Just in time for dinner... hot dogs and corn on the cob...


My bottom was still vibrating from the bike ride...

I just had to stand up and chill for a minute...

Ooh, para- sailing... now that looks relaxing...

Fly-over billboards... now this is the Myrtle Beach I remember!

OK...time to sit down and finish my dog...


We were all wiping our faces and just about ready for dessert

when my brother-in-law pointed to his cob and quietly mumbled...

"the rows of corn are always even"

Judy didn't say anything...

but her face SAID what I was thinking...

"poor Frank is one kernel sort of a full cob..."

My sister Nancy didn't say much but methodically started to count her rows...
(I didn't say anything but I was thinking...
"poor sis...whatever Frank has... she has it too!)

"'re on to something!"

"I'm counting 18 rows again...
Let's call "E" (our other sister) over and check this out..."

Well, after "E" came up with even rows...

I decided I got to go check this out for myself...

BUT it took awhile...

Do you have any idea how far I had to drive to find a corn field at Myrtle Beach!!!!!

And can you believe it...

every ear I checked had 18 or 20 rows...

"even number" every time!

"Shazam...Uncle're A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!"

"Colton...keeping it real...sorry to burst your bubble... BUT...Frank...

this whole "corn row routine" of yours is something like you'd hear in any cheap hotel comedy lounge in Iowa...

I'm totally not impressed...

it's DOLLYWOOD and not Hollywood for you guys"...


HEY GUYS... NO PROBLEM..."Chill"'s just an ear of corn...

Hey, it wasn't Hollywood but it was beachie keen!

Overall... a good relaxing trip... a little ear-ee... but good. LOL!

oh, almost forgot..check the corn thing out for's true!

I thought you would appreciate this song. It's to the tune of "I Want it that Way" by the backstreet boys.
God bless! See you @ the Barlowgirl concert!
