Busy Social Season Is under Way

Article excerpt

Byline: Judy Wells, Times-Union staff writer

I'm ba-a-a-ck.

And just in time for the April-May marathon of social events. I've missed a lot, though, so do bring me up to date. If you've e-mailed, I'll respond, promise, but please be patient. I'm moving at about half speed and at least 200 of these 1,200 messages seem to be legit!

Pssst! Did you hear about . . . ? You did? Call and tell me all about it. Call, too, if you've seen, planned or are about to do something smashing, if you stuck around after your last meeting to hear all the good stuff that gets hashed over in the parking lot, or if you've encountered a hidden facet to one of our area's notables. The tip line is (904) 359-4155, and I'm interested in all the interesting waves in society's currents, from St. Augustine to St. Simons.
