Fourth of July already? Where does the time go? By the time you read this I’ll be in Chincoteague, hopefully catching some of the their local bands playing the Chincoteague Fireman’s Carnival (maybe one of their famous fried oyster sandwiches too!) Just because I’m not going to be out and about doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out and see WTIM friends Stephanie Grace, Go Commando, Middle Class Madness or Hillbilly Shakespeare! Talk to you in two weeks, Rock on.
