The Conch Republic
I LOVE that photo of you. The best! We were in Key West in '89 and love it, despite the fact that the temperature didn't get above 56F until the day we left and it rained almost every day! Did you also got indoctrinated in the "correct" way to pronounce "Conch" in Key West. I never accepted "Conk" as correct but I said it that way to keep the peace. I didn't want another rebellion.

I think I need to go to Key West. That photo of you in the chair highlights your great smile. Mmm Mangroves...

I lovvvvveeeee Key West, but I could never live there. I'd wind up a raging alcoholic.

That looks like a relaxing time. Nothing like a private pool. Been as far as Miami and need to venture into the Keys. Funny story. Quick surrender. Was the Mayor French?

I believe the Keys lifestyle suits you. You look marvelous! Tell the truth... where you and the Mrs. curious about real estate in the Keys? :)

What a beautiful place. I'm guessing it's tropically hot and humid, correct? If so, I'm afraid I'll only be able to enjoy it through your reports and photos. And I love the Key West/Conch Republic. Reminds me of "The Mouse That Roared." :)

Lovin' the hat! Looks like you had a great time. It's hard to imagine that Madonna didn't have enough money to buy the house, I thought she'd be rich enough to buy Key West.

Key West still looks beautiful and inviting. It is as Caribbean a feel as one can get in the US. You look terrific and rested in that great photo.

I am loving this trip you are taking. Key West is my family home town and I just love revisiting--even vicariously. Thank you. I do remember the Conch Republic well. It was a fun time.

You look fabulous in the photo! I hope you didn't embarrass yourself ordering conch fritters and pronouncing it wrong. :-) And how did you ever manage to get a photo of that Southernmost Point without any people in it?

Looks like Key West agrees with you. Such a robust picture of health, with your jaunty chapeau!

Yes! Great picture of you, Stephen. When are you coming to Arizona?

Somebody had a wicked sense of humor to declare independence from the Unites states. I like that one,,,even the name.

I love the story of the secession. So glad you had fun, but maybe we should all send some money to poor Madonna. Love, Janie

It is EXACTLY "The Mouse That Roared"!!

That's all very rustic looking. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself, esp with your very own pool! :)

What a snazzy snappy photo of you! I guess we should go there aswehave sisters in Florida! Cheers!

I was in Key West once, about 3 - 4 years ago, just for a day; however, I didn't look nearly as cool as you do!

Private pool, lunch at beautiful refurbished homes, relaxation, geez, no wonder you are grinning so! Cat

Great photo of you. You look like a plantation owner. I have been to Key West a few times but never stayed there. We always stayed on the boring Keys to the North!

I love Key West. Now you've made me want to go there (like yesterday). Surely you visited Papa Hemingways and Sloppy Joes, right? Checked out the pirates treasure? Margaritaville? Yep, I need to go back. That's all there is to it. :-)

It is a nice laid-back place. Great photos and glad you had a good time.

I love the Keys. Jilda and I were down there about 10 years ago.

OK-Don't know what happened before but here is my actual response:) My brother has been to the Keys twice and loved it. I never have but it looks so pretty and relaxing just from how you look. I love that one house-creepy doll house-love the colour of the house with the shutters
