Today I played golf at a course close to Topsail Beach. Afterwards, Fred and I stopped for lunch at a funky beachfront spot, "Buddys". On my way out, I chatted with this guy, but didn't understand a word he said. Way too much beer, and a wee bit off balance.
The extra is Ben, our waiter. Ben is originally from Philly, and his been living here for several years.
