So three weeks ago I am lounging in the comfy chair with the perfectly chilled Vodka Martini and Mrs CBT is on the laptop perusing my zany comments on Facebook when she declares that Doty (the name we will give her today) is selling her jeep and moving away. I naturally inquire as to where and momma tells me that she is moving to St. Thomas USVI to which fire off a text to her asking if St Thomas is still considered in the Delta. She replies yes that there will be a going away party for her the Thursday before she leaves.
Thankfully Mrs CBT and I have known Doty for a good 6 years when she was living in the apartments and would walk her beloved dog John (Rest in Peace) around the hood and we also would all hang out at the various drinking establishments. Not only being a true ‘southern belle’ Doty also is an accomplished artist and she shares the love of music by Willie, Waylon, The King, and many blues artists that we have sung at various times (off key) at some bar called Bar 595.
Anyway Doty decided to sell her stuff, throw caution to the wind and move to St. Thomas and we are sad to see her go but yet are very happy for her as we know she will be fine and I would not be surprised to see that the island will go from Calypso to Country Western by the time we are down there in December.
Some paintings/mixed media art that Doty created
Hopefully you know who that is
If you don’t recognize this guy you should be shot
