Meeting the Family

Circa 1982. When, apparently, the only thing we had to wear was velour. The guy with the gun is on the right.

I was sharing this story with some friends during one of the Passover Seders, and thought you might enjoy it, too. In December of 1993, we were in college, and FKGuy spent . . . → Read More: Meeting the Family

It’s October… Almost Fantasy Fest

This is me and FKGuy. We are very fancy.

It is October. Hard to believe, but it’s a fact. That means a few things in Key West: It still feels like summer, only a more tolerable version; snowbirds start to flock back south this month; and, of course, it is nearly time for Fantasy . . . → Read More: It’s October… Almost Fantasy Fest

Potty Mouth

Last week I updated my Facebook status as follows: I’m glad auto correct has finally figured out that I NEVER want to type “ducking“. Thanks, phone! Combined with being on the verge of moving into a new house, it reminded me of the first house we ever bought.

Birthday Parties

FKGuy honing his mad skee ball skills

So, you heard about FKGuys big Four-Oh this past May, where I cooked for a week, prayed it didn’t rain (since we had no plan B) and had a whole lot of people over eating and drinking. Those are the kinds of birthday parties in my life these . . . → Read More: Birthday Parties

Good Friends (and Keeping a Sense of Humor)

I am fortunate to have a number of people in my world I consider close friends (don’t worry… this isn’t going to be one of those sappy “I love you, man” posts… keep reading). I have the good fortune of working with one of these lucky people on a new project. Don’t ask. I’ll tell . . . → Read More: Good Friends (and Keeping a Sense of Humor)

The Kindness of Strangers

When I was little my mother always told me not to talk to strangers. She was – at least some of the time – wrong.

FKGuy and I are nicely settling in to our new house but have been missing the deck must-have: the grill. I had seen a reasonably priced Kenmore version at KMart . . . → Read More: The Kindness of Strangers

Living in a Small Town: Jury Duty

At first it was a loud exhale, followed by an eye roll, followed by a tirade of “who has time for this crap”, culminating with the “it’s my civic duty, I can suck it up for a day or two.” Yes, I am talking about Jury Duty and receiving the dreaded summons in the mail. . . . → Read More: Living in a Small Town: Jury Duty

Need a Laugh?

The People’s Theater of Key West is a local community theater group, which includes The Improvables, an improv group. They have performed the last two weekends at The Bottlecap and will be appearing once again this weekend.

For the show, the group is divided into two teams with a referee awarding points and trying, . . . → Read More: Need a Laugh?

As seen in Key West and South Florida

The motto of Key West is “One Human Family” which generally means that people should be nice to each other. More often than not, they are (unlike the rest of South Florida). Aside from generally being nice, Key Westers tend to not take things too seriously. Consider these signs seen recently on a local business:
