John D. MacDonald, Travis McGee, and Sunny Florida

Just got back from sunny Sarasota! We went to a wedding of our friends' son. The bride and grooming were beaming and a good time was had by all.

The Deep Blue Good-ByBeing in Sarasota reminded me of John D. MacDonald, the author of the great character, Travis McGee.
