OK, not really unnatural. But there are parts of it that just don’t add up to this northeastern boy! See for yourself…
The Fam. Those two young un’s are Bradley and Macy, the son and daughter of my cousin Elyse. She passed four years ago, and one of our visits was to her gravesite, along with my aunt and my grandparents. Was great to see everyone again, and to reconnect with my roots.
I have had more than one mojito in my day. First time it ever came with a sugarcane stick. Nice touch!
Moon over Miami! Well, Delray Beach.
Any time your coffee comes in shot glasses, you know something’s different. Bradley turned me onto this. Half at dinner, the other half in the microwave for 20 seconds the next morning. Party time at breakfast!
My cousin Sherry. Hadn’t seen her in five years, but it felt like yesterday. She didn’t know I was coming in, so it was a total surprise to her. And no, she’s not a rabbit or a martian. Those are palm leaves in the background.
These are the ROMEO’s, which stands for Retired Old Men Eating Out. Hysterical bunch of guys, swapping stories from their 450 years or so of collective age. They made me an honorary Romeo for the day, which was fun. Or maybe it was the rest of the Cuban coffee from the night before. But I was in a really good mood during breakfast! Boca Raton.
I’m pretty sure they weren’t commuting to work. Boynton Beach. That’s the Intracoastal Waterway in the background.
Wow…eight bucks a pack! Last time I bought cigarettes from a machine they were a quarter. Of course that was for my mom and it was 1969.
Note to my fellow New Englanders: there is a parallel universe where you could do this on the beach in February.
I found this on the ground under a palm tree. Always wanted my very own baby coconut!
The last night. Kellie and Cliff had me over for dinner. You never know exactly who is who until you’re in the same room with them. So I can tell you 100% they are the real thing… And so is their family. Awesome peeps! Thanks so much for the hospitality.
