Petite Maison Jaune - Little Yellow House
I found the pic above and decided it tells a simple story about Key West, the place I decided to call home. I was not born here. I was born in Denver and stayed there until I got so damned tired of shoveling snow and driving on roads that moved too fast and living with too many strangers.
I fell in love with Key West the very first time I came here. A lot of people do the same. Some other first time visitors hate this place and can't wait to get away. Good for them. Haters aren't welcome here. But the welcome mat is out to everyone else. There is a slogan the tourist group uses to entice people to come to Key West - Come as You Are.
Sometimes they caption the photos so perfectly that the viewer gets the exact feeling the photographer had when he or she captured the photo and shared it with the world.

Gary Thomas in a Nutshell
- Gary Thomas
- Key West, Florida, United States
- I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
