Surrounded by Parrot bric-a-brac, my old friend David Ickes and his family.
David lived in Key West in the seventies and was a loyal Parrot customer and good friend. A professional photographer he moved back to Philadelphia in 1979, soon to become the Philadelphia Phillies photographer I believe.
Whenever I would return to Philadelphia for visits I would look up David and John Travis, another Key Wester from the seventies at his bar, J.C. Dobbs at Second and South. More on Dobbs here.
David, pictured here with his beautiful family, proves once again that there is hope for all of us grizzled old guys.
