Wednesday

If, as Jesus is written to have said, it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven,

1. camels are little
2. that soft-headed crap is a lie
3. people in Naples, Florida want to go to hell really bad

That town is swimming in money, which is good because they can afford a watchmaker.

There are lots and lots of the speed-challenged; many times we were on the road behind retirees who were driving Benz S class convertibles like Miss Daisy with a full glass of iced tea. It's abuse, I tell you. If that car was a child someone would take it away for doing that.

My wife and I both got the jobs we wanted, so in the middle of January we'll be making our way to Naples, which is, according to Mapquest's driving directions, 1743.46 miles south of here. So many details, so much stuff to manage. At least half this shit has to go. We also have yet to put in our notice at work and where we live before we give away what we can't pack and skeedaddle.

We got this news yesterday afternoon and it's still very surreal. I hope that soon I'll wake up and unlike now it will be more natural than laborious to think that we're moving.

Hey dude, I heard that humidity can be a problem in that area. You'll have to run the hell out of the air conditioners for a little while; just a heads up.

I don't give a shitter's fuck, I'm excited for you. Besides, we have a launch point now to get to the post-Castro party in Miami.

Congrats. I guess you deserve leaving in Naples as much as anyone.
