Had my clam dredge 'Vicky Mary' tied up at a dock at Breach Inlet, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina at just about the same spot the Confederate Submarine Hunley was likely tied up prior to making her final journey.
My wife's cousin owned the dock and the bar room at the creek's edge. The local natives had threatened to burn my clam dredge; claimed I was destroying the fishing. As a result of the threat was obliged to live aboard while working the area.
I spent many an evening up at the bar room sipping beer and passing time. One evening A small group of musicians put on a little show there.The group leader was a tiny woman playing a mournful violin.
Her magic fingers and caressing bow flooded the tiny place with her music captivating the patrons, capturing me. In a plaintive voice she at one point sang the words "What about me?"
Yes. What about you and your beautiful music.
