About header photos

The photo on the left is of the typewriter upon which Ernest Hemingway wrote For Whom the Bells Toll, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, and a number of other best-selling novels and short stories. This photo is cropped from the photo below, which I took in December, 2011. This was Hemingway's "studio," located on the second floor of the little cottage located behind the Hemingway Home, a Registered National Historic Landmark, in Key West, Florida (907 Whitehead Street).

The photo on the right, of moi, was taken in July, 2012, on our patio in Fargo, N. Dak. I'm wearing my Frank Sinatra-style Fedora, purchased at the Mob Museum, located in the old Federal Courthouse in downtown, Las Vegas, Nev., just off Fremont Street.

And a brisk walk from the Hemingway Home & Museum, you'll find the restaurant and bar where Hemingway enjoyed hanging out and visiting with friends. It was here he relished catching up on local gossip, following a day of fishing. He did his writing in the mornings, usually starting about 6:00 A.M. I enjoyed lunch there with my private plane pilot in December, 2011, ordering their "classic Sloppy Joe sandwich." You can visit Sloppy Joe's website by clicking here. They feature a webcam that's live whenever the restaurant/bar is open; located at the corner of Greene and Duval Streets since 1937.
