People define Key West in all sorts of ways. In my opinion, Mr. Chapman makes the Top 10 of “What Is Key West”. Thank you, James Chapman, for bringing joy to us all.
Key West is indeed full of characters, some great, some not-so-great. However, in the category of ones who make you smile are The Muriels, formerly known as The Waterlosers.
You know, a whole lot of fun people walk into Vino’s on Duval. This night was no different.
The Muriels are fun to watch, especially when they’re walking down the streets of Key West. In addition, they perform for charity. Prissy thinks that absolutely rocks Look for them at Share The Wreath at La Te Da on December 8 at 6:30pm. Share The Wreath is a benefit for AIDS Help.
As much as Greg enjoys the lively characters and personalities of our quirky home, there is also something else he enjoys…A LOT. Sports cars. Greg does the Bay Bottom Crawl out on Sugarloaf Key every single year. Some of the cars Prissy liked…
Sweet, isn’t it? However, one of us needs to have a car that will fit the pups and currently that is me. Bottom line, I cannot have a 2-seater. I will continue to have 2-door convertibles…no family cars.

As did they…
And I went walkin’…
And speaking of happy-looking and cute (a shameless segue, I know)

But even puppy play dates have to end at some point and turn into date nights. Our date nights always revolve around food, wine, or a mix of both.
On a recent trip to Cafe’ Marquesa, we indulged in mushroom-filled pasta purses in a fabulous broth.
Later in the evening, we indulged in
The thing about bread pudding is that you can find almost as many restaurants that serve it here as you can Key Lime pie.
This gem was from Santiago’s Bodega and made from croissants. The funny thing about our visits to Santiago’s is that they typically did not include dessert, despite that we always order dessert every place else. I think the reason is that we always over-order at Santiago’s and there is just no more room. However, last month, we made room…and happy we did, yummm!!!
Please take the time to savor life’s little treasures…they are so worth it. Have a glorious day
