[TPC] - Congrats to TPC Contributor Bess Tuggle

Happy Sunday, TPCers! What a glorious day we're having in the glorious GA Piedmont. A high of 67 with nothing but blue skies & sunshine. Man, oh man, that's so nice! And obviously well deserved after the biblical rains we've been having for what seems like a year & a half.  


Just wanted to take a moment & give a shout-out to one of our contributing writers, Ms. Bess Tuggle. Bess has picked up a new writing opportunity over at Mexico Beach Strong. But fret not, Dear Readers, Bess will still be sharing her weekly "Memoirs of Surviving Children" here at the ole publication.

Bess's first piece - "A Lil' Slice of Heaven" - hit on Friday & it's an excellent read.

As some of you may know, Mexico Beach, FL holds a very special place in the heart of Yours Truly, MB McCart, as well. My wife's family has had a place there since the 1970s. I took my first trip there in 2006 & have been at least once a year every year ever since. Seeing the coverage of the destruction wrought by Hurricane Michael was tough to see for so many of us who'd come to know & love that "lil' slice of Heaven," but that can't even come close to what the inhabitants of "The Forgotten Coast" have & still are dealing with.

And that's another great thing about Mexico Beach Strong - all net proceeds are going to help the relief & rebuilding efforts. It's a good thing!
