March 2013 Journal
The 1910 Inn has had an interesting month of branching out in various tangents.
At the apartments Al is doing great, and it is a pleasure to have Jeannie join the village. Some of you may have met her already.
Enriching guests keep finding their way to The 1910 Inn.
During mid March when the Tampa Bay Championship golf tournament was held at Innisbrook Golf Resort, PGA golf caddies lived at The 1910 Inn. John "Cubbie" Burke, Mike "Fluff" Cowan, and Mike "Hicksey" Hicks are such nice gentlemen, and it was a pleasure to entrust the inn to them. Innkeeper Annie discovered that Lysol Mold and Mildew Cleaner does wonders to remove mildewed pond mud from a U.S. Open 2011 Congressional golf shirt. New friend, Fluff, was very thankful, and gave the shirt to Charlie as a souvenir. Annie confiscated the souvenir and enclosed it in a shadow box with autographed golf balls for her office. An extra golf ball was signed with the endearing name "Fluffy Cow"; thanks John and Mike.
One sunny, warm Saturday bride-to-be, Allyson, arrived at the inn in a 1956 Chevy Bel-Air for her bridal shower. It was a delightful afternoon. (see the blog entry, "A Victorian Bridal Shower!")
The side garden continues to develop into an eclectic and enchanting retreat. Arni (Youvetsi), our new pet lamb, blends in perfectly with the existing wrought iron.
Barry and Rosemary ("kindred spirit") from Michigan soaked in the Florida warmth each afternoon in the side garden. It was so very touching to receive eggplant purple slippers adorned with eggplant purple glass beads that Rosemary knitted for Annie. Eggplant-colored to match the inn's paint trim.
The month ended with an unexpected call from CBS News producer, Peter Henderson, and his request to film at The 1910 Inn. Of course, the film crew will be served some spanakopita and baklava!
