The city's goal:  To protect the city if anyone got injured.... wearing flip-flops.

NOTE:  The rule is not enforced because no one is there to supervise the park. Residents will not be told to leave.  They can wear flip-flops at their own risk.

Obituary Of A Ladies Man

A Georgia man's obituary states William 'Freddie' McCullough was a life-loving ladies' man, and he attracted more women than a shoe sale at Macy's.

The obituary said that he first got married at 18, but it didn't last; Freddie was no quitter, however, so he gave it a shot two more times.

His son, Mark, wrote his obituary, and tried to write something in the colorful style that his father lived his life.

The obit said, 'Freddie was killed when he rushed into a burning orphanage to save a group of adorable children. Or maybe not. We all know how he liked to tell stories.'

It continued, 'Freddie loved deep fried Southern food smothered in Cane Syrup, fishing at Santee Cooper Lake, Little Debbie Cakes, Two and a Half Men, beautiful women, Reeses Cups and Jim Beam... What he hated were vegetables and hypocrites.'

He was buried with a packet of Reeses and bottle of Jim Beam.
