Saturday's Dump & Chase: SPRING BREAK!!!!

New, 15 comments

That's right folks, substitute teacher working on a Saturday. Bryant is off on some wild adventure. Hopefully, he won't be sent to me by one of my friends working the Bay County Jail. "HEY DAN, I GOT YER BOY DOWN HERE." It's gorgeous, yes, but I really don't miss living in a place where the restaurants and clubs will shut down for months, awaiting the arrival of tourists. Imagine the best steak joint in your city closing from October to February because they lose money by being open. That's PCB.

Be safe, Bryant. We do depend on you for stuff. And try the amberjack.
