L'art de Vivre

Now that the Winter "season" has come and gone, we locals can relax and get down to some serious Summer fun. Last week, Bill and I were out almost every night, and I enjoyed all of it. On Tuesday, we attended a fundraiser for Naples Backyard History at Sea Salt, Wednesday we dined at the home of an artist friend, Thursday I was scheduled to attend the opening of "Sex and the City 2", but cancelled, and Friday we attended a reception for Vanessa and Lynda's commitment ceremony. Saturday we heard the Fort Lauderdale Gay Mens Chorus and the South Florida Pride Wind Ensemble... then had a late dinner with friends and karaoke ! (Bambusa Bar and Grille) I enjoyed test driving the new 2011 Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet at Mercedes-Benz of Naples... and signed a new client in the same community where pro golfer Nancy Lopez once had a home. (Nancy is related to my mother through her husband, All Star Ray Knight...) All in all a fabulous week and weekend... here I am visiting with dear friend/client Mary K. Hill in her intimate study, which I recently freshened up with her and builder Fred Sahapoglu. That's a Picasso and a Milton Avery... the art of living, indeed ! DF ***** (Dean's shirt - Burberry)
