It will take me longer than one post to do this story Justice. It involves, family, friends, acquaintances, Strangers, the Law, Conspiracy and it’s all true. I couldn’t make it up. But I can’t convey it in one post. So this story will be at least a 2 part series. Remember I grew up in a strictly Italian neighborhood in NYC. That may be important.
I think I got a story, I’m not sure. I am proud to say I have never had a one night stand in my six decades on earth. I have never been unfaithful to anyone, not even a girlfriend. I’m sure I m not the only guy who can say that, but I Would guess I’m in the minority.
But that is not the story. I had gone to Florida in 2016, I had just retired, after working for 40 years in my career. I was fortunate to have done well in my career, and lived comfortably for most of my adult life.
That said, while I spent many years in commercial finance and obviously well versed in balancing a budget, money had always burned a hole in my pocket.
Needless to say I didn’t have much money saved for retirement.
I’ll come back to that later. So, I’m in Florida, my family lives there. Being a beach bum, Florida Seemed like a good place to retire too, especially since I had family there as well.
Wrong! After the novelty wore off, I got my full of the sun, and my full of my family as well. They were nice to visit but… and the heat and humidity were too much for me.
New York seemed like the place to go to, but it was way over budget, plus I grew up there, I didn’t need the rude obnoxious attitude any more.
So, I decided on Cleveland, big mistake… To be continued, tomorrow, promise. You won’t be disappointed. I assure you.
