Fun in the sun!

("Camo" Jack in Key West)

Win a job in Key West with free housing!!!

A fascinating opportunity showed up on my "radar".

I've been down to The Keys quite a few times over the years; not this year, however, but three out of the last four. Were it not for the fact that I'm already pulling down the big bucks in the "Military-Industrial Complex", it would be well worth considering.

From the potential employer's website:

Lazy Dog Island Outfitters & Outdoor Adventure Company is a young, fast growing company looking for a dynamic, outside-the-box person to join their team.

Could this be you? Yes, apply!

$75,000 a year as a member of the Lazy Dog team and free housing in a prestigious community in Key West.

All finalists will be invited to Key West, all expenses paid, where they will stay at The Conch House and The Kitehouse. The Lazy Dog crew will spend a week getting to know the finalists, after which a winner will be chosen.

It looks like somebody's "dream job". At the very least, it could mean an all-expense-paid trip to Key West.

There are worse things in life...

You would be just a bit further south if you were behind the sign!

clothing sales. Do they have a line of camouflage too? You’d be a expert rep :-)

"Kelargo,Montego,baby why don't we go down to Kokamo?"(forgive the spelling)
Got my flip flops packed and Spf15 lotion handy....ready to go.

Wow! Now I'm really jealous. I was in Key West THIRTY years ago, when I was but a lass!

I've always wanted to go back there. Someday, soon! ??

Are you also known as "boberin"?

I will be much farther South when I retire.

I may know a thing or three about camouflage, but they'll just have to muddle along without my services. My sister Debbie lives in South Florida; maybe she'd like the job.
(I sent her this post, too)

You just reminded me of a clever re-write of that Beach Boys tune...Kosovo.

Oh, and I've known Bob_inSpain for years. I can assure you that he and boberin (who I met in person recently) are two different people.

Thirty years ago you were but a lass, huh? All of three years old, I'll bet!

GO FOR IT, camo! What you'd lose in income would be well worth getting away from that crappy Philly weather, wouldn't it? Just imagine, while your friends back home are shovelling snow, you COULD be on the beach! I KNOW I'm looking forward to THIS winter with special glee...[nudge, nudge...wink, wink] Besides, with your rapier wit and charming personality, you'd be a "shoe-in" for this job!!!

All hurricanes are programmed to fly directly over Key West before they hit New Orleans. Be careful down there and stock up on beer early!

Key West is a great place to wine and dine and close that sale for sure... Some real estate girl that looks like an Hour Glass will win...
They have been selling hat and Tee for awhile now are going into sport apparel???

'da Bunny:
Not me. I've got too much time invested in the "Military-Industrial Complex". (20+ years) I'll be getting away from the crappy weather at the beginning of Winter in Florida, and in February I'm off to the Big Island.
(My rapier-like wit notwithstanding)

A lot of hurricanes pass through the Keys, 'tis true...but as long as one doesn't live below sea level, it ain't necessarily the end of the world. I've ridden out a number of cyclones personally, from Florida to Hawaii.

Some gal might win; if she's qualified, that's OK by me.

FYI, I don't know too much about the Lazy Dog Company, only what I've read at their website. I do know a bit about Key West though, having been there a number of times. It's not cheap, but this deal includes housing, a major expense.

Yes, and good riddance to it, too.

Who do you have to kill?! All the other applicants, I guess...

Ya know... I'm beginning to think that your comment section doesn't like me Camo. I just spent 10 minutes composing a comment and it disappeared. If it's not that, then it's recurring posts from MY comment section... SHEESH!

Anyway, I've never made it to Key West. Got as far as Marthon Key. Our friends have a place there. Drove there from Lakeland, FL when we still lived there. Driving through sugar cane country at harvest time is a treat... There seems to be more cane stalks on the road and in the air than headed to the Domino Sugar processing plant.

Best regards...

Have you emptied your cache, Hawkeye?

Camo: looks inviting, but they'd stick me on a boat. I suffer from Mal de Mer. :(

Not a bad idea, though. Get enough folks together and buy your own company compound.

FYI, I generally compose my comments in "Notepad" then copy & paste into the comment box; that way if it "eats" them, all my typing (which I hate!) hasn't been for naught.

And if you got as far as Marathon, you were nearly there.
(It's only another 40 some odd miles)

Well, from the job description they might stick you on a boat, 'pon occasion. Seasickness, huh? Have you tried dramamine or somesuch?! My father gets that there "Mal de Mer"...but luckily I do not.

BTW, your book arrived this week, thanks!

damn...I love Key West. I was stationed there in the Coast Guard and also lived there when I was in fourth grade. Still one my favorite places..great lobster hole just south of Marathon.

I tried looking it up, but ended up trying to find it in the Oxford English dictionary.
Correct Spelling:
floccinaucinihilipilification- an act or instance of judging something to be worthless or trivial

It was also used in a GEICO commercial.

American Crusader:
We (my brothers and I) had some very freshly caught lobsters when we stayed down in Marathon a few years ago. Yummy!

Well, I judge that word to be worthless or trivial, then. So I guess I'm a floccinaucinihilipilificator.
(Who'd have thunk it?!)

Hi Sweetie, nice shorts. Almost didn't recognize you without the camo pants...until you pointed out your shirt.

Yes, if I don't wear some article of camo clothing...I could go into withdrawal. Heh...
