Living Aboard:  So Who Parks What Where?...

One of the more noticeable “upgrades” occurred here at the Labombard Home For The Rich And Wealthy this week. The parking lot was covered with fresh gravel, and new parking curbs installed, each painted to identify who was and was not allowed to park in each spot. The letters were stenciled on by somebody, unfamiliar […]

And in this case, the reaction weren’t pretty.  Yesterday, once again I was perched on the porch of the old bait house, frittering my time away on the computater, when an interesting scene unfolded, very much different from when the nice couple puttered in the other day on their sailboat to get fuel. As I […]

Of course you would. You are all sitting on the edge of your swashbuckles waiting for the next installment of “AS THE SCALLYWAG TURNS”. Ok then, here we go. Lessee, let’s start with the marina and everyone’s favorite land baron. This was relayed to me by another renter as to the status of things. According […]

Seems to be trend here.  Sunset Marina, located on the north west side of Stock Island, has changed ownership.  It doesn’t look like our favorite evil warlord is involved in the purchase, at least he is not named as such, but this sale bears watching.

There used to be George, the security guy. George wasn’t the friendliest person on the property but he was good at keeping an eye on things. Everyday around 5:00pm […]

Apparently the closing of the marina sale is today, as opposed to yesterday.  Or maybe it takes two days for the two sides to properly lube up each other for the screwing.  Anyways, this article appeared in the Citizen today:  Developer Buys Marina.  It pretty much sums up the deal and does mention that the […]

Well, next week the big event takes place.  Sometime around the 12th Labombard closes on the sale of our little marina.  What happens after that is anybody’s guess.  Rumors continue to fly and nobody seems to know or is willing to discuss what will go down.  Since my wifi connection on the iPhone is still […]

Well, the holiday is over with and for all intent and purposes, we are into the summer season here in Key West.  The stormy weather has started with the daily thunderboomers and the media is all aflutter with the latest predictions of a very busy hurricane season, sponsored by Home Depot, Eveready Batteries, and anyone […]
