Mark and I spent twelve days in Florida from March 13-25, our longest trip there ever. We usually stay for only a week or so. We started out in Fort Lauderdale where we spent the night at Howard Pistol’s house, then drove to Key West for three nights, followed by five nights at a rented house in Wilton Manors where we played in an unrated Scrabble tournament. Our last three nights were in Miami Beach.
We are fortunate to be able to travel to Florida every year–and managed to return home in 2020 just one week before the world shut down–so photos aren’t anything new, but we did manage to take a few snaps of each other, as did our Scrabble friends.
Sculptor Richard Orlinski had his works displayed along Lincoln Road and we posed by several of them.

This wider range captures Jack Eichenbaum, Ed Roth, Bruce Adams, Marla Riff, me, Mark, Don Poulin, Howard Pistol and Richard Popper. Teresa Schaeffer and Susi Tiekert were also there. Teresa had to leave early and Susi didn’t want to be in the photo so she bowed her head yet you can still see her hair and left ear in the bottom right corner.
