When Nothin' Else Matters

Down the shore everything's alright,
You're with your baby on a saturday night,
Don't you know that all my dreams come true,
When i'm walkin' down the street with you,
Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.
- Tom Waits

It took us until the final weekend before Labor Day to do it but the Missus and I made our annual pilgrimage to the Shore.  On Saturday night, we headed first to 'Squan to meet up with the rest of our party and then made the short trek down Route 35 to Point Pleasant.  Approximately three hours later with cheesesteaks and Kohr's ice cream in our bellies and the sights and sounds of the Boardwalk etched into our minds' eyes we headed north. 
A night of Frog Bog, bumper cars, Whack-A-Mole and the Tilt-A-Whirl is good for the soul.  And when it takes as long in the summer season to arrive as it did this year for Margaret and me, it is savored from its beginning until its end. 
A magical elixir indeed....
