Cheeseburger in Paradise

I'm curled-up on the couch with a nice glass of 20-year Port wine reading Jimmy Buffett's latest novel, A Salty Piece of Land. Jimmy paints a fine picture of a Caribbean paradise, and it almost makes me forget the 2 days of freezing rain and current snowfall outside the living room window.

I hate winter, but Mother Nature and I have come to a mutual understanding. As long as she makes sure that the weather is nice when I take my yearly vacation in more tropical climates, I don't bitch too much about the white stuff she occasionally dumps on us Northerners.

I've been planning a few weeks in Key West this coming April - a fine time of the year to get away from winter, as spring is just around the bend and if timed correctly, I get back from vacation just in time to take the bike out of hibernation and finally start moving around on two wheels again. Jimmy's writings are only confirming that I've made the right choice for my destination.

I'm hoping I'll be able to rent a motorcycle while I'm down there, but unfortunately all I've been able to find are HD rentals. Not exactly my cup 'o tea, but if that's all there is then I'll get a Sportster or something.

For now, I'll just go back to my glass of Port and immerse myself in exotic locations!

"Lately, newspaper mentioned cheap airfare.
I've got to fly to Saint Somewhere.
I'm close to bodily harm.
" - Jimmy Buffett
