I sent a picture to Marty hoping he might use it as his picture of the day. I just can't seem to get it to work on the message board. My picture comes up with that red X where the picture should be.

This is rather mournful for my first post on this board.
I stayed at the SpinDrift for two months when I arrived in San Pedro in January and Smoky was the very first local I met here. He gave me a unique insight into the culture here and always had a story to tell me about the island he loved so much. I am glad I got the chance to know him, and I am sad to know he is gone.

Just wanted to post my respects to Smokey. He was a fixture in front of the Pier Lounge for so many years it will seem strange not to see him lounging around the doorway next visit. I know his health has been failing these past couple of years and props to Zoby for stepping up to help out with his medical expenses. His visits to our house were always full of wisdom and laughter. He had such joy from living a simple life and it was a good lesson to all of us who get busy with our day to day lives about what really matters and how important the simple things in life are. He will be missed. May his spirit be resting in the shade of the great heavenly pier!!

Smokey told me the night Paisano passed on that Paisano told him that he would see him one of these days. Paisano passed almost immediately afterwords...guess their telling stories now. Smokey grew up in Stann Creek, now Dangrega, Belize. He told me that his childhood was made up of work and more work. He was very proud that he built a structure for his parents and that it was still standing...the last time he was there. He moved to Silk Grass...outside of Dangrega for awhile. When he arrived in San Pedro...his search was over...he was home!!! He worked many different jobs. My thinking is that his childhood, filled with hardwork, made his adult needs small. He loved people above anything else...and would remember folks for many long years after being away. Smokey was a great dancer...particularly in his earlier years. He used to tell me that he would dance every night, all night, during tourist season...and still open Rubies Cafe in the morning. San Pedro will not be the same without him, for me and his many, many friends. I am very proud to be friends with Jenny and Zobie...I know they gave made him a fine send off. Rest in Peace...Smokey!!!

Gone fishing!!
