OK I am finally back and here to help

Hi everybody,
I have been off for so long that I almost forgot what was what - I was able to post a few times during all the trials and tribulations but we survived all the impact experienced.
anyhow now to business
Are there any questions etc on my hometown of Key West?
I do have all the pamplets and information about Key West for those that are interested. You can drop me a note at snelsonbrown@aol.com and I will be more than happy to share - the only string attached is you are responsible to get the envelope to me with it self addressed and postage attached - I don't even keep one stamp - I get it right back to you.

Second if you have any questions about Brevard County - you know Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, even Orlando - I have information on that also -
If I can help in any way, just drop me a note ok
Hope all is getting excited about their cruise - wish I could be more help to those going on the Eastern - maybe someday.
Until next time
Stay safe and happy
Always
Shirley and Norm

Nice to see you back and posting Shirley. Don't need anything now, but I'll be sure and contact you before our next cruise (Dec. 2004).

We rebooked for the August 21st, 2004, Magic (new) Eastern Caribbean cruise. Andy and family also have reservations for that sailing. Question: why don't you and Norm make reservations and join our Dis group for YOUR first cruise...

Shirley -

Don't need anything just want to say how much I enjoyed our visit before my cruise. It was so nice to meet you and Norm. I didn't get a chance to stop in after the cruise but has a wonderful time.

I hope all is well - I have been sending pixie dust and prayers your way.

I think you should joing the 8/20/04 cruise as well but if not how about 2005?

Sandy

I wish I knew of an inexpensive place here on the beach - ever since the "BOOM" of property explosion - everyone feels they have to charge like they will never get another customer back - I know I know - everything is going out of sight in cost for everything - anyhow the only one I know for less than $50.00 is Motel 6 - they aren't bad to tell you the truth and ALMOST on the beach - it is a walk away -

Those going on the Western AFTER November - Norm and I are going "home" and will bring back some newer information about Key West - as for going on a cruise I am ready if Norm will keep himself healty long enough - I have threated to throw him off our patio if he doesn't stay well now for a very long time - he promised to do so -------so we may surprise you ---
Anyhow hope all is doing well and staying safe.
You know I luv ya.
Shirley and Norm

So glad you're back and things are well. I hope Norm is feeling better these days. I'll probably be in touch soon to arrange for baskets for our FIRST CRUISE in November. Until then, take care and think happy thoughts!!

OK where is the fruit stand you stop at in Dade on the way to the Keys. Spill so I can enjoy it.
Tip for you. Best BBQ is at Shivers on US 1 heading towards Homestead. Just above 280th St

OK Lisa now I am really really going to get jealous cause you will be getting the tropical fruits that I am been hankering for - when Norm is up, I will drop you a note as to where it is - I didn't know about it until he took me there - I know it seems like it is in the middle of nowhere - but who cares cause all that yummy fruits I grew up with are all around me
Anyhow have a great day and will chat with ya with evening.
Hugssssssss from me to you
Always
Shirley

Hey there Lisa -
Norm was asking to where you lived in order to give better directions to all the latin fruit stands, but he did offer these directions.
You turn off West on to Pines Blvd until you get to RT 27 - and then head South when you get to Rt 954 to homestead - you will run into Crome Avenue - after you pass 41, you will see the Indian gambling casino - you will have to go about 5 to 7 miles and then you will see numberous of latin stores - I believe most of them do speak English - write me a note at snelsonbrown@aol.com and maybe I can get a map drawn for you which will make it easier ok.
Always
Shirley
