My first ventures to Florida were to Orlando in 2005. While we were down there, George was tied up in a convention. Mickey (from da stoop) was living in Titusville. He picked me up in Orlando and we visited Roz and then we went on a marathon all-day trip. He took me over to Cape Canaveral to see what he called Alligator Alley which was kind of scary. Hundreds of alligators seen along side of the road. He was disappointed that they weren't basking on the road itself as they often did. They were close enough for me. We stopped for lunch at a place that was famous for rock shrimp and then down to Cocoa Beach before heading back to Orlando. It was a fun day. The next time I saw Mickey was when I visited him in a nursing home after a stroke the following year. He was so happy to see me and talked about when he got out. He'd been having walking problems for some time and although I knew the chances of him being out on his own again were very slim, I didn't burst his bubble. Mickey's map of our trip.
