Overheard: Snug Harbor Restaurant, Ft. Myers Beach | 04:50 PM
A woman at the next booth over hits it off with the waitress because they share the name "Beverly." Further discussion reveals that they are both named Beverly Jane. Apparently, Beverly Jean is the more common version, but the customer's parents had already give her sister the middle name "Jean," so she got the leftovers.

The swisspeaks festival hits town on Feb 27, and it looks to be a rockin' good time. Planning to attend? Fashion tip: Wear something neutral. (with a tip o' the porkpie to Mssr. Mike Saenz.)
