    A: The name "Free Raisins" is kind of strange, how did you come by it?

    B: Well, you see, at our first dance someone brought a basket of raisins with a sign saying "free raisins," and it kind of looked like the sign applied to the band.

    A: Because I was talking to Jon Cannon, and he says you ended up with the name because it sounds kind of like the freemasons.

    B: That would be silly. Who would name a band like that?

    A: Aha! I found a flyer for that first dance, and you're billed as the "Free Raisins":

    B: Weird! I guess I've told the true-but-misleading name-origin story so many times I've come to believe it myself!

    On the Beach

    I really like going in the water and this beach is a great place for building sand castles and boogie boarding. I also like trying to float on top of big waves. I'm not very good at it. I only float on the flat waves.
