Hangin' at my favorite Greek restaurant.

The owner, Johnny, who is a good friend of mine, is not in a good way.

Recovering from multiple surgeries. He's in pain, but the cranky old guy is fighting back. He says nothing is going to put him off his golf game. He's a tough old buzzard. I love him to death.

Enjoying some friendship and human warmth amidst the hate and anger.

1. What is that odd Greek wine that somehow manages to grow on you? love Tarpon Springs!

Tell Johnny another ol guy wishes him the best.

Smells like pine sap and is very very dry. But you're right; it grows on you.

4. Dangerous stuff

My first encounter was at a restaurant on the island of Crete.

First mini-bottle: "This tastes like turpentine! Mmmmm...maybe I'll have another bottle to see if it gets any better."

Second mini-bottle: " Hey, not so bad! I'll have another."

Third mini-bottle: "I can kick the ass of anyone in this restaurant!"
