Hope you’re up for a little change, because we’re about to stir things up in the what days are for what department.
#MusicMonday and #MotivationMonday are history. We’re going back to just calling it Monday. Mondays aren’t special. Mondays are a drag. If you must, call it “Monday Monday” like that great song by the Mamas and the Papas—only that’s music, so no.
#TacoTuesday will continue, but only if you eat your tacos without lettuce. Nobody, I mean nobody, likes lettuce on tacos. #TuesdayThoughts is abolished immediately, unless you’re thinking about tacos.
#WellnessWednesday? Forget it. It’s too late for most of us.
#ThrowbackThursday will remain, but you can only share photos that are at least 50 years old. You probably deleted most of those
from your smartphone.
We’re keeping #FollowFriday, but Twitter tags are limited solely to @BeachcomberFL, @HarborDocks, and, inexplicably, @TheRealFunyuns.
As for #SaturdaySwag, I’ve always had a problem with that clumsy (well, nonexistent) alliteration. Let’s change it to #SaturdaySag and see what kind of horrifying images people share.
Finally, the demise of #SundayFunday has been a long time coming. If you’re out having fun on Sunday while I’m cleaning the garage and giving the dogs pedicures, I don’t want to know about it.

YOUR THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS
Thanks for the article, Charles (“Boat Building Visionary: Nothing Average About Steve Sauer” by Charles Morgan III, May 31-June 13 Beachcomber). A nice tribute to a unique and talented friend. He will be missed by all who knew him.

A big thank you for continuing to run the articles by Carl Hiaasen. He is a fine writer, and I feel fortunate to have a source to read him.
I have had a hard time locating Beachcomber since they stopped being delivered to the lobby of the building holding the fitness center in Sandestin. They have finally completed the construction and maybe you can resume delivery.
Today I noticed many copies of Beachcomber at Sacred Heart Hospital. This seems like a great location. I volunteer there several days a week, and this will be an improvement over the old magazines scattered throughout the hospital.
