I am staying at Jamey Jones’ place in Pensacola. Great guy, a teacher at Ferry Pass Middle School where I did the presentation yesterday. Among other things, he is a big time skater. Back in the day, he was one of the original new style skaters.
This afternoon, Jamey and I went skating around the neighbourhood. Had I been a better photographer I would have had a nice shot of him doing some classy moves on his boards. As it is, we will have to do with a still off a DVD he features on.
Earlier in the day, Jamey’s sister Lisa took me to have a look at her workplace – the famous award winning J’s Party Shop. They use the old fasioned gas ovens, and create tantilising goodies.
Such sugary delights. Everyone in the bakery were stoked to have a ‘famous’ person visit, and I signed a piece of paper seven times, just so that everyone would have a signature of a Guinness World Record holder…I hope I make it!
I spent far too much time in the place, and ended up leaving with a box full of sugary treats to see me on my way.
The complex to which the bakery is part of is also home to other interesting spots, including a colourful salon. Someone is going to have to remind me of the name of the place…
So a massive thank you to Jamey, Lisa, Anne, Maya, and their many friends for a wonderful stay in Pensacola.
