This afternoon I was selected to be a model in a photo shoot for Pier House (a Key West hotel).
Was I cast to sit at the bar entrancing one of the island lovelies while holding some exotic rum drink with a an umbrella in it? No... my particular talent was identified to be the senior citizen making sand angels at their private beach.
