Life and politics from the Sunshine State's best city

So grateful…

Before I post another damn thing, I just have to say I am grateful for little things in life: like playing tennis at North Shore Park. That has to be one of the best places in the country to play tennis. I mean, it’s on the frekin’ waterfront. When I was in New York, I had pay beau coup bucks just for the right to play tennis INDOORS. Here I was today, playing exciting tennis — for free — against the most amazing scenic backdrop.

Let me also say how grateful I am for my pool. Having a pool is, as someone remarked about drinking a coke, very democratic. See, my Coca Cola tastes just as good to my broke ass as it does to the richest man on Earth. Me being in the pool cannot be any better for me than it is in my own backyard. You can have an Olympic-sized swimming pool and I will feel no better diving in to it, as I did today when I dove into that arctic blue water.

Finally, let me say how grateful I am to be with my mother again. She reads this blog occasionally, so if she is, I want her to know how proud I am of her and how much fun it has been since I returned from New York.

I am looking forward to a great Summer.

Update: someone just sent a comment that the FBI is investigating me…lol. If I am a Fed target, they must have run out of criminals.

Anyway, why are people so mean?
