Keeping up with Sharon

Hi Folks-

I’ve decided I can’t possibly keep up with Sharon’s torrid social pace. Here a party there a party – Sharon’s always at the party and I might have to say slow down. But is there any slowing her down? That’s the question. In recent weeks she has:

– One night a few weeks ago she bought a special cooler with wheels and filled it with three days worth of party food and drink and proceeded to flit, (yes, I said “flit”) from one event to the next. The wheels on the cooler were integral to her plan. She was moving, and because I like to have fun I kept up with her.

– Last week she helped throw a 30th birthday party for Chelsea and we left the party at 4:30, that’s a.m., and I played eighteen holes of golf the next day, which I’d forgotten about the night before. I’m too old for this. Or maybe I just need more sleep than Sharon. I need to either start running or get a motorcycle – I haven’t decided.

– We’ve gone out to dinner twice this week already and are contemplating going out tonight. And of course there’s the small party Sharon’s planned for this Saturday. Poor Peter. Hey, I like the sound of that, “Poor Peter.” Now if I can get Sharon to say that or better to feel it. Fat chance.

The fish is great tomorrow with Alaskan wild King Salmon leading the way and lots of swordfish for less than $15/lb. Red Snapper, my favorite grilling fish, is on the menu as well, as is 2+ yellowfin tuna which is glorious used for sushi or lightly seared on the grill.


Remember the wine tasting coming up on the 20th. These are a great venue for tasting and buying wine and Sharon treats these as a grand event, with food to die for. Come hungry and with the desire to learn more about wine and you’ll be glad you came, I guarantee it. We’re about 3/4 full so sign up this week to reserve your place.

And if any of you feel like mentioning to Sharon that her much older husband might need a break, I will be in your debt. It won’t work but it’s worth a try.

  • Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
  • Alaskan King Salmon
  • Striped Bass
  • Dayboat yellow tail sole
  • Sustainable Shetland Salmon
  • Dayboat Haddock
