    Any of y'all think you make a better bread pudding than I do need to adjust your views so they are more in line with true reality.

    key west reminded me of resort towns in the Caribbean/southeast asia/south america/ in a good way.... superduper laid back, chickens running around in the streets, lotsa mopeds, good food.

    I was wondering if hauling the bikes all the way from brooklyn was a good idea... but everyone said that you can bike the whole key west easy. totally worth it... parking a car in the touristy spots is a bitch. we even got one of those dog baskets for bigger dogs.

    there really are 6 toe-ed cats (40+ of them actually) living in the Hemingway house. the tour is actually cool.

    obligatory black and white artsy shot.

    I didn't realize florida is actually a pretty big state. the drive from vero beach to key west was over 5 hours.

    vero beach area has been great so far. its one of the places that we could potentially move to.

    they have this kick assed dog beach about 45min away called walton rocks. totally off leash dog friendly. we spend the whole day there yesterday.

    I'm still heavily leaning towards staying in Brooklyn/NYC... Florida has been awesome so far but it feels like a place I'd like to vacation in rather than live full time.

    Best part of Christmas thus far was Saturday night, impromptu drive - picked up the in-laws and took them to see the lights in River Oaks. Some of those houses are magnificent. Then we took a few side streets and wound up in a spot with some tiny houses where the MIL grew up. We must have spent 20 minutes driving up and down the streets slowly, listening to her and the FIL reminisce about those days, some 55-odd years ago. FIL chuckled about jumping off the porch when MIL's dad came out of the house.

    That looks like a good bread pudding too, but less scientific than the ones I make.

    In the spirit of modernity, I just like to use the word "scientific" as a catch-all word for "good." :)

    It looks like you add a lot less of the egg and milk batter than I do.

    Larry - for the love of whatever god you believe in, DO NOT move to Vero Beach. Lovely to spend a few days in, horrible to live in full time.

    I've noticed that Harvey uses that bit of British English a lot. I have lived in PA, and dealt with many from NE PA, and I can confirm that the people of that region do not typically write that way. More evidence that Harvey is sui generis I guess. That said, I did live many years of my life in Centre County, PA. (Which, as you might it expect, is right in the center of PA.)
