Here's one of my favorite True Stories from our new book, A Stingray Bit My Nipple! (It makes a great Father's Day gift—seriously, I'm giving my dad a copy!) The story is from Sheree Hobson of Portland, Ore.
Requesting information for our visit, my husband was e-mailing the North Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce when the spell-checker questioned the word "accommodations." Not noticing his mouse slip, he chose "abominations" to replace it. The reply made us laugh: “Thank you for inquiring about the best kept vacation secret in Florida.... I guess the only abomination we have is a crusty old man who continues to fish off the bridge downtown in his long johns. But we are working with him. Do come and enjoy!
