It took combined efforts

To paraphrase the Lads, I got by with a little help from my best friend (who uses his "dad voice" at times like this to reassure me), Xanax, and a distractingly blabby seatmate named Debbie who has only lived in Key West for three months and was interested to learn about Fausto's, which is a much cooler grocery store than Safeway.

Flying is still difficult. But I do it. And, according to my shrink, that's the important thing. I don't let the fear interfere with my plans.

Got tons of bad news yesterday, just when I was least equipped to hear it, about my oldest friend and my friend, John. More on that later.

Right now, I'm just gonna relax and enjoy being on such a friendly and pretty island. I can see the dock where the cruise ships depart from my hotel room!

    Ah.....Key West, Mallory Square at sunset, the light house, the cemeteries, and the list is endless.    One of my favorite places to visit!  Oh, and I forgot to mention the street entertainers.  Love that place!  Hope the weather holds out for you - we're finally getting some nicer weather in the Sarasota area.   Hope it lasts.     Hope your whole visit is great!

  2. Glad you got there safe and sound, Girly. I love flying but hate roller coasters so I'll assume you feel that way about flying. :)

    Enjoy yourself and have a WONDERFUL New Year! :) Cheers to more fun in 2011!

  3. Hope you enjoy every second. Decompress and live it up!
