Hey Tony, what a relief to hear that you made it thru Emily ok. Don't know if you saw these pics or not yet, but here are pics taken of you & your restaurant when my sister & brother in law visited you, just 3 days BEFORE the onslaught of hurricane Emily. I hope your restaurant's awnings & outdoor areas survived the storm ok. Tony. Tony, looking forward to seeing your photos to see how things look now, after the hurricane.

Welcome back! Glad you're OK. I saw a news report where they interviewed a restaruant owner who was very happy because his place of business did not sustain any major damage. Thought it may have been you, but as I look at the pictures posted here I know it wasn't you. Anyway welcome back!

It's good to hear that you're back, Tony!!!
I knew it from the first time on that you'll surmount the hurricane because you'll have to organize the Cozumel Jam Session, haven't you???

Hi Tony
good to know that you are safe and well.
Having spoken to you and seen you and your wife and little girl a few weeks ago using skype and spontania, I feel closer to you
than with my other mail contacts
Those pics from Scott are great. When I get the chance to holiday in exotic places, Cozumel will be the first on my list of priorities.

Wow! Glad everything is OK. Wish I could hop on a plane and come down to help you clean up, but if I do I'll have to change my marital status on my tax return.

I'll call you soon,

Just got off the telephone (Skype) with Tony and he told me he made it thru the hurricane safely. Thankfully, due to the communities good hurricane preparedness, power & telephone service have already been restored, and there has been relatively minimal damage to his restuarant. What a relief to hear this news. Tony, welcome back. Great to hear your voice again.- Scott

Tony, nice looking place. Can you use a Sax man? If so, see if you can book me as a OMB on a Cruise Ship so as I can get there. Ha! Ha!

Glad to see you came out in decent shape. I'd been thru all the bad ones that hit New Orleans between 1941 and 1973. We used to go the High School where the walls were 2 or 3 foot thick. Those walls felt a lot saver then our standard 4 walled 1850 home we lived in. Also, we could run up to the 3rd floor if the Mississippi River Levee gave way. We were 6 blocks from the river from two directions. The River makes a big turn there thus, the Crescent City.

Tony: I was greatly relieved to see your post. (Noticed it while at work early this morning. Could not respond due to company rules.) Sending this from home. Glad it was not too bad for you. Keep plugging. You have a pretty good "fan base" here.

I just talked with Tony on the phone, he was fortunate and only had minimal damage, a few things to patch up and take care of, and within the next few months, Cozumel will again be among Mexico's top tourist attractions. I'm really looking forward to October.

Stay well my friend,

I'm glad to hear you are OK. As long as you are fine everything else can be fixed. Our friends son was honeymooning there and had to seek shelter. He and his bride were delayed returning to Michigan but otherwise are OK also.
