That Kelly is a piece of work, ain't she? But you gotta like her - she's funny as all get out, and she moves as fast as she talks. I'm still waiting to see that purple hair, but I will tell you I saw it green once.
I'm supposed to introduce myself, though, and not talk about everyone else.
I was born right here in Rock Harbor. Daddy was a shrimper. Mama raised us kids. Five of us. I was the baby. Hard to know that now with all this gray hair. We all grow old sometime. If we're still here.
Anyway, I own Lulu's, a bar and grill on the old highway to Corpus. We serve the best burgers and coldest beer in town.
I run a safe, clean place and don't put up with crap from anybody. Happy hour gets a little rowdy some days, but weekends the place is full of families, kids and all.
The first time Jake Solomon came through the door, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. If I'd been thirty years younger....
But the first time I saw him with Taylor, I knew that man was a goner.
Oh, well. That's life.
Some days you win, and some days it's somebody else's turn.
Gotta get back to work. It was nice to meet y'all. You ever find yourself in Rock Harbor, stop in and say hi.
