July 3rd, 2011


While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board
the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, ‘Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan.

An old Master Sergeant sitting in the eighth row thought to himself,
‘Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman? ‘

When the attendant came by he said ‘Did I understand you right? Is the captain a
woman”? ‘Yes,’! Said the attendant, ‘In fact, this entire crew is female.’

‘My God,’ he said, ‘I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don’t know what to think
With only women up there in the cockpit.’

‘That’s another thing, Sergeant,’ said the crew member,
‘We No Longer Call It The Cockpit’

‘It’s The Box Office.’

May 18th, 2011



The Beach Bum Parade (May 20th) has long been the launching party for the summer season on Tybee. This year marks the Parade’s 25th year as the World’s Largest Water Fight! It’s WET, it’s WILD and it’s WHEW… a whole lotta fun! Of course, if your sky high hairdo is of the utmost importance to you, then either galvanize it with Aqua Net or just stay inside! The entire City of Tybee Island is just swamped with water pistols, aqua uzis and every kind of water squirting contraption sold at WalMart or concocted in some crazy guy’s garage! Everyone is game….so just plan on getting wet and enjoying your evening as a drenched diva!

Of course, if you need some fashionably dry togs, stop in Seaside Sisters (Tybee’s BEST GIFT SHOP) for post-parade garb…fabulous beach tunics by Mud Pie, Switchflops for your feet and a whole slew of amazing accessories!

Now tell me…. are ya feeling lucky????



May 10th, 2011



It is THAT time of year… when the BEACH calls and the beach chair beckons! Time to go bathing suit shopping (just stick an ice pick up my nose instead!!!), grab this season’s newest pair of flip flops (Switchflops at Seaside Sisters, of course) and scan the book store for that perfect beach read.

Well, girls…leave the shopping to us! Not only do we have all of the tropical togs you could possibly need…we’ve also got a bevy of beach books just waiting for you to crack the cover. Check out Mary Kay Andrews’ newest book, ” Summer Rental”! She’s done it again, Sisters! So grab a beverage, your new bathing suit, a big old hat and sit for a spell to read MKA’s terrifically entertaining tome!

We’ve even included an excerpt for y’all and expect Sisters to come screaming into our parking lot to pre-order their copy! The book releases in June, so stop in and get yourself one…mention the BLOG and get 10% off of your pre-order! It’s a must have, must read, must share and MUST laugh out loud book!


Sometimes, when you need a change in your life, the tide just happens to pull you in the right direction….

Ellis, Julia, and Dorie. Best friends since Catholic grade school, they now find themselves, in their mid-thirties, at the crossroads of life and love. Ellis, recently fired from a job she gave everything to, is rudderless and now beginning to question the choices she’s made over the past decade of her life. Julia—whose caustic wit covers up her wounds–has a man who loves her and is offering her the world, but she can’t hide from how deeply insecure she feels about her looks, her brains, her life. And Dorie has just been shockingly betrayed by the man she loved and trusted the most in the world…though this is just the tip of the iceberg of her problems and secrets. A month in North Carolina’s Outer Banks is just what they each of them needs.

Ty Bazemore is their landlord, though he’s hanging on to the rambling old beach house by a thin thread. After an inauspicious first meeting with Ellis, the two find themselves disturbingly attracted to one another, even as Ty is about to lose everything he’s ever cared about.

Maryn Shackleford is a stranger, and a woman on the run. Maryn needs just a few things in life: no questions, a good hiding place, and a new identity. Ellis, Julia, and Dorie can provide what Maryn wants; can they also provide what she needs?

Five people questioning everything they ever thought they knew about life. Five people on a journey that will uncover their secrets and point them on the path to forgiveness. Five people who each need a sea change, and one month in a summer rental that might just give it to them.

(Excerpt from St. Martin’s Press website)


And don’t forget Mary Kay’s other titles…we’ve got them all! Stay tuned for a big old Seaside Sisters BASH to launch the book and celebrate MKA! LOL Sisters!
