from November 3, 2008Believe in Change  That freckle faced 17 year old kid on the right side of the photo is me way back in 1964. The guy next to me is now an attorney in Denver, and the girl on the end was my first love interest. We were at the old Stapleton Airport in Denver at a rally for Pres...

We traded a couple of stories about this and that when I mentioned the name of a former head honcho at a Key West bank. The lawyer's ears perked up. I knew the bank officer was le...

This really happened. About 27 years ago. That Key West business that I dealt with is no longer in business. Thank God.  In October 1993 I purchased a former guest house in Key West at a public auction held by the Small Business Administration. The SBA had foreclosed a mortgage on an operating gu...

 4 Gecko Lane is one of my all time favorite properties in Key West. I think I saw it the very first time in 2003 soon after it was listed for sale. It was at that time a one-of-a-kind property where two houses were made into one. A few other people copied the concept but the original remains the...

 Just Listed, but not by me, 823 Terry Lane, Key West. The concrete front porch base and brick columns tell us that the house was updated about fifty years ago as those building elements were common then. I dug into my old shoebox and found a photo of this house that was taken in 1965.  The 1965 ...

The above photo was taken from the Key West lighthouse in 1910 - just fourteen years after the Great Fire of 1886 which destroyed most of the commercial buildings and many homes in Old Town. You can see the spires of St. Mary's Cathedral near the upper right and Ernest Hemingway's House in the lo...
