I was born and grew up in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was a good life of intense summers and quiet off-season. Frankly, it was a bit of a wild, youthful life. People would come to Myrtle Beach for a 'blow it out' weekend or week of vacation and, as a resident motel hand and local beach bum, I was happy to help.

Fast forward to 2013 and although I no longer live at the sea side-side show, I have a double dozen and more of relatives still residing and carrying on down there. How fun is it to see some of them featured on TLCs upcoming show "Welcome to Myrtle Manor." Yes, I'm serious.

Tune in tonight at 10 pm EST for the premier.
