Quiet weekend mornings
|The Center Grove, 7:15 am today.|
As I was standing on the sidewalk awaiting my biker friends, my attorney of all people, drove up in his golf cart with a white mug of coffee in his hand, he is usually with the biking group but wasn't riding today, too sore from yesterday's ride he said. He is one of these guys who I was suspicious of with when I first met him years ago, I thought he was one of the political shady guys in the Grove that I had to be aware of, but he is quite the opposite. He's helped me over the years and is very generous and an honest easy-going guy.
When he got off the golf cart this morning, he hugged me and wished me happy birthday, he knew it was my birthday last week, he said, because he had it on his calendar at work. He reminds me what Coconut Grove is all about.
After the bikers took off for their 7:45 am ride, my friend headed home on his golf cart, and I headed to the Bookstore, where I had a meeting at 8 am. After that, I went to the gym, and then had breakfast back at the Bookstore. It was still a very quiet Sunday morning, but people were out and about, so there seems to be someone around at all hours in the Grove which is nice.
I didn't make a stop at the Starbucks by Monty's which I sometimes do on the way home. Interestingly enough, one of the girls who works at Starbucks is sisters with one of the girls who works at the Bookstore cafe. When Panther Coffee opens in the morning (yup, bright and early Monday morning, on Main Highway), I may have another stop to make daily, we'll see. About Monty's, I know it sold this week, I think the deal was in the works for about a month. I'm not sure why so many people have felt the need to mention the sale to me. Maybe they expect better food in the future with new owners. Hope so.
