    Hemingway connection...

    ..So, last Friday Kathie and I are enjoying a cold libation at Louie's Backyard's Afterdeck in Key West.. Only seats open were next to this small old man with bushy gray hair. Conversation ensued as what usually happens at a bar such as this. Turns out his name is Benjamin "Dink" Bruce....son of Toby Bruce who was Mr. Hemingway's constant companion, cook, gardener, driver, etc.. Always by his side. Dink grew up around the Hemingway's and is now the sole curator of his notes, short stories, and drawings. Knows Marius well and is a good friend of David Wegman. Google his name and you find pages of stories about him and his Cuba connection. Very interesting gentleman.
