As a reminder, I'm a renter (say it with disdain)....
But yes I'm near Cannery Row - about 5 mins if there weren't all the GOD DANG TOURISTS!!!!.
The shot above is at Carmel State Beach.

Ghiradelli is good. But there's better. Want some?

I know I should have known better but Cannery Row was one of my big disappointments. It is one of my favourite movies and I had recently read the book. So while on a business trip I took a drive down the coast from San Francisco to visit this shrine I had envisioned.

Imagine my disappointment to find no one living in a boiler, no pickup baseball game in progress between the "girls" from the Black Flag and Mack's band of misfits, nothing. LOL I don't know what on earth I was expecting but it sure wasn't what I saw!

Enjoying a cob in lovely old Apalachicola, FL on our anniversary. Nothing like a nice smoke near the water.



Puffin' my first pipe, a $25 Calabresi, while toilin' away on a collage for a show that year. Some of the last known photos of me before I quit storing my hair on top of my head, and kept it all on the lower part of my face instead.

Seriously.

When I met my wife's birth father and his wife in Nashville right after these two photos, I had a full head of hair and a small beard. A couple months later, we visited again and I'd shaved my head and grown my beard. I overheard her folks and their friends talking in the kitchen one morning. "Yeah, and she was married at the beginning of summer, and all of the sudden she's with this new guy. He's nice though!"

Too funny. At least the new man in her life is a nice guy!

No kidding! Funny thing is they were all too polite (read: old Southern) to say anything about it. Told the wife and she wanted to keep the charade going. And you know what spoiled the gag? They noticed me smoking a pipe on their back deck. "Just like the last guy!"
