MHF, that sounds like an awesome birthday trip. I am totally with you on the whole, prep and clean thing, it's a pain. That diner does look like fun. There is a diner in Myrtle Beach and Broadway at the Beach that is very similar, and we have eaten there several times on vacation. The name is escaping me right now.
I was putting horses out a bit ago, and heard a crash in one of the trees. The limbs were still shaking so I went over to the base of the tree and it was a poor squirrel. He either fell or got knocked out by another squirrel. I thought at first his back was broken, he could only move the front end and was panting really hard. I put him in a bucket of hay and carried him up to the breezeway so nothing could eat him until I figured out what to do, and by the time I got there, he was kicking one back foot. So maybe his pelvis, or the other leg is hurt, or maybe he was just stunned really badly. Anyway, he's in his bucket for now, and I'll check on him in a bit to see if he's better. If not, I have to decide if a wild squirrel is worth a vet visit or not. My mom and I have done a lot of wildlife rescue, but squirrels are tricky. They are great if you raise them, but are prone to biting if they are full grown and wild. This one is young, but he's an adult, so it might be risky to treat him myself.
ETA, Johnny Rockets! That's the diner at Myrtle I was trying to remember!
