“I designed gravestones for 15 years.” I met Ned today while walking my dog in Coconut Grove and we talked for about an hour. He told me how his first job was designing and lettering gravestones entirely by hand (now it’s done on a computer). Then he was an electrician for 15 years and then taught night school for 20 years. And during this time he hand built 3 large sail boats and literally sailed the world.
“If I didn’t live in the United States, I’d live in Sydney Australia” he explained that it was his favorite city in the world. At 83, Ned is incredibly active as he plays tennis every morning and dances two nights a week at the Elks Club.
