Thanks! That's neat to see!

Man, how much fun would it be to have something like that locally??? Some of you guys/gals out there are quite lucky!

We certainly count our blessings here in FL. I will see what I can do about amassing more pictures, they may be crappy cam phone pics but it should get the job done.

I spent the afternoon at the festival today with my father in law. I tried the Los Blancos Nine and Arturo Fuente Anejo for my first time. Tampa Sweethearts was selling Opus X singles for $13 and I meant to buy a couple (limit 2) but the guys in front of me bought the last of the box. I shouldn't have waited until 4:30. The Anejo filled in for the Opus.

We hung out for a couple of hours and listened to Don Juceam and the Cigar Dave Orchestra. Not exactly my genre, but they were quite good and set the mood just right. The Hot Sun Trio followed and were good as well. They must have lost a member since they were billed as the Hot Sun Quartet.

I've gotta say, the Los Blancos Nine is one hell of a cigar. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I bought an extra for the road and have it resting in my humidor along with a Los Blancos Maduro. My father in law had one of those today and said he really enjoyed it.

The weather was great. It was around 80 with a slight breeze and the sun drifted in and out of the clouds for most of the afternoon. What a relaxing way to spend a Saturday!
