Hello and happy Monday y'all! I hope everyone's weekend went well. We spent ours in sunny Florida! Everyone else is all excited about fall time and colder weather and the changing of the seasons, not in Florida. It is still warm and sunny there, which is much more of my cup of tea! Today seems like a tour story type of day so that is what I'll do. I'll take you way back, as usual, with this one. It was the middle of summer, we were in Florida, touring around in a suburban, and we didn't have AC, to say that we were severely in need of a shower is severely understated! We were down in the pan handle of Florida and we had the day off so we had been bouncing around and beach hopping all day and we found ourselves in the lovely Panama City. One of the guys had grabbed their shower stuff and found a beachside shower head, made for rinsing off sand from your feet and sandals, not actually for taking a shower, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Not long into what would have been a much needed shower a cop interrupts and, rather rudely, informs him that you can't actually shower there and that it is illegal, so that option was shut down pretty quick. At this time I had braids in my hair in an attempt to transform these braids into dreadlocks over time. After seeing the beachside shower attempt go haywire, I decided to take measures into my own hands, so I grabbed my shower stuff and made my way down to the ocean and decided to take out the braids and wash my hair and bathe in the ocean. After doing so I made my way back to the suburban where the rest of the guys were eyeballing a hotel room that was open. A few minutes later we figured out that the room was vacant, so what do you think we are about to try? You guessed it! We are about to take turns going in this open room and showering and hope we don't get busted. I'm not condoning illegal activities by any means, but when you need a shower as bad as we did, you'll do almost anything to get one, plus we weren't hurting anyone or anything. We ended up successfully completing our shower rotation without interruption, and we felt like brand new men! I'm certain we were just shimmering in the sun and smelling like freedom and excellence after that glorious shower, at least we felt that way. Sometimes when you need something in a desperate way, you will do almost anything to get it, and that was certainly the case on that day. We didn't have money for hotels but we had the swiftness to get what we needed and no harm, no foul. Again, I'm not condoning criminal activities, but I think that was justifiable given how bad we needed a shower and we left them a small tip for using the shower. I think that makes us crafty, not criminals, even though it may not have been perfectly legal. We promise not to stink on this next tour, so come out and hang out with us and let's finish the year in style! Cheers folks!
