Woody’s…Where Everybody Knows Your Name

This is mine and B’s favorite hang out. Doesn’t look like much right? Well, we slip off to this oasis every now and again to just hang out, talk, have a few drinks, and unwind away from the kids. It doesn’t happen often, but it’s awesome when it does. 
You see Woody’s is kind of like Cheers for us. Sure they don’t all know our names but they are all locals, and they all know our faces. They know what we drink. They call us Norm when we walk in (I totally made that up because it was funny…in my head). But seriously, this is where we hang out when we are able to hang out. 
No tourists (thank you baby Jesus), no nonsense…just relaxing island fun. 
I might *or might not have* sang Merle Haggard’s “You Don’t Have to Call Me Darlin” totally out loud in it’s entirety one night with perfect strangers that I now call friends because B told me I sounded like a hick when I sang it. I couldn’t hang out with him after that! 
It was on the juke box. It was fair game and they were singing it too. I think they were singing it anyway before I sat down at their table. OK, they were singing it after I sat down at their table. I know that much!  
Anyway…this is Woody’s. It’s a place for locals. We welcome tourists, but you better know all the lyrics to all Merle Haggard songs if you dare to walk up the plank. 
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t quote the song that inspired this post…because well, I’m a fan of going to a place where…everybody knows my name. 
Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows
Your name.
You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows…
your name.
