Coffee Shop Appreciation Day...

We had Coffee Shop appreciation day today.
I opened our mail box this morning and found this letter from a very happy customer from Scranton Pennsylvania.

Dear Theo and Diane
I spend two weeks (at least) in your very comfortable shop, programing all day and making liberal use of your electricity.
Thank you very much for providing such a nice place to work and hang out, not to mention the fine coffee - the Americano was the hottest cup of coffee I've ever had!
Enclosed is a contribution to keep the enterprise going strong.
Thanks again,
We love you too...

The Fat Lady sang...

Our un-experience in playoff combat crushed our championship dream.
The Coffee Plantations "Java Junkies" Bocce team got together Saturday morning here at the Coffee Plantation for a pre playoff get together and team bonding.
You could feel the excitement and electricity in the air.
We where all nervous, "on top of the polina Tom" ordered a large Coffee in stead of his usual half a cup, "Country Lee" only wanted half a bagel instead of his usual largest bagel of the bunch, Dee the Iceman was very nervous and afraid he left himself some poppy seeds in between his teeth, "Gorgeous Jodi" was just very nervous and me "Dynamite Theo"was making room here in the Coffee Shop for our soon to be ours, the "Southernmost Bocce Championship Trophy".

We got crushed... our first game of the playoffs was our last... it was horrible.
We are going to do much better next year.

Come and Gone...

A short visit from my Dutch brothers Cor and Ton made me realize how much fun it is to life here in Key West.
Don't get me wrong, I love Holland with it's Windmills, Tulips and Coffee Houses but Key West is just great.
For a little over a week I was the tour guide for my brothers, what basically means I had a little over a week vacation my self...
We visited the Hemingway House, Lighthouse, Butterfly house, USS Mohawk, Mel Fisher museum, and lots of sight seeing walks all over our Island. We took a boat ride with the Yankee Freedom to the dry Tortuga's for Ton's first snorkeling experience, and to top this all off we rented each a Harley Davidson for a trip to Key Largos card sound road to get some bad fried food from Alabama Jack...

My brothers Cor and Ton left Saturday morning early to go back to Holland with great memories and tons off pictures.
That means my little vacation is over.
The good thing is, I got to stay...
Like I said to my brothers, Key West is like a Dutch village... with Palm Trees.
I hope they come visit me again soon.
