Our office is in Naples, Florida. Naples is a resort town. People come from all over the world to visit our little town. The weather is great. We have a slew of great restaurants. The sunsets are fabulous. The architecture is gorgeous. We are on the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches are filled with beautiful people and you can watch the dolphins and pelicans play all day. So it is no wonder that we see famous people from time to time.
This morning the athletic Joy Ann and I were riding our bikes when we spotted Larry Bird out for a walk. Larry is pretty easy to spot. His face is visually distinctive and he is noticeably tall. I am guessing the woman he was walking with is his wife. I said, “hello” and he graciously replied, “hi”.
We hear that Bob Seeger has a home in Naples. We saw Judge Judy at a local ice cream shop. We watched Bret Baird and his family at our neighborhood beach. As we past each other I cleverly asked the Fox News anchorman, “What’s up.” He politely answered, “Hello.”
I saw Paul Teutul Sr. from American Chopper at a stop light sitting on a huge motorcycle with a flashy babe hanging on to him for dear life. That guy has arms the size of watermelons.
Mike Ditka had a restaurant in Naples a few years ago. It was a great spot and Mike was in the house many of the times we visited. One evening the gourmet Joy Ann, my father and my mother (god rest her soul) were leaving when Mike Ditka reached over the bar to shake my hand and ask, “How was your meal?” “Everything was great!” I replied. The next day I strutted around announcing to my colleagues how Mike and I had been chatting about the finer points of the culinary arts.
I think it is cool living somewhere that people drive a thousand miles to visit.
