You may have noticed a decline in posts recently. Apologies, but it's really out of my control. You see, Bermuda Shorts got its newest little correspondent last week—a beautiful baby boy, born on Friday, March 4th who is currently taking up the majority of my time. But have no fear! You'll continue to get your tropical news and island updates on a regular basis, but probably not until sometime next week (or when my head gets down from cloud nine). In the meantime Bermuda Shorts would like to apologize in advance to all of its regular readers—that means you in West Islip, N.Y., you in Mountain View, Calif., my Brazilian fan club, the goods folks in New Delhi, India, my peeps in Edinburgh, Scotland and especially all of you right here in Bermuda. Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more of your regularly scheduled Bermuda Shorts programming. Now if you don't mind, I'm gonna go get some sleep.
