Ode to South Beach... and WHY Lebron Took "his talents there" and Left Cleveland
I remember watching this for the first time and thinking "seriously anyone could ask WHY leave Cleveland?"
How can anyone ask that question? I'm sure Cleveland is a nice place to visit.. certain places maybe on certain days in the Fall or the Spring. But, Miami's history is filled with people who made the decision to leave Cleveland and never looked back.
Julia Tuttle the "Mother of Miami" lived in Cleveland and that was in better days for Cleveland I may add.
Carl Fisher at one point lived in Cleveland... he moved south and never looked back aslso.
You see Carl saw the value of living on Miami Beach any time of the year... even in the winter ;)
And, the ONLY Cleveland I'd like to near is the Clevelander Hotel!!
And, wishing I was having breakfast at the Books and Books on Lincoln Road, Yogurt Fruit special.. under the walkway to my father's old office in the Sterling Building.
Miami Beach on it's worst day in the middle of a hurricane is better than some cities up north ...
Any day of the year... it may be a banana republic, but it's our banana republic..
Ps...my daddy's office..one of those portholes ;)
And, I used to runway too when I was young... to play pinball at the Fountainbleau ;) and then I ran home... 3 4 blocks away.. and no we weren't rich but we lived rich and we were happy and I loved it then and I love it still... if you are going to be poor somewhere... or rich... move to Miami and you'll have a rich life, 365 days a year!
