Weekly meeting of really old geezers, in a local place that has free coffee refills:

Old business: A discussion of last week’s obituaries. Note: Bring a new geezer to the next Saturday coffee clatch.

New business: Moses (I told you we were old) brings in the front page of the 5/24/13 Santa Barbara weekly The Sentinel. Major item: The hotel El Encanto now features Diane von Furstenberg Water.

The following discussion ensues:

1. How did the Santa Barbara Independent miss this?

2. Is Diane relate to Arthur Von Weisenberger, consort to Wendy McCaw, owner of the Santa Barbara News-Press?

3. Where did this “special water” originate? Not the Rhine River, I hope. (“Hans, is that a Michelin tire in the river?”)

4. Why did it take the Orient Express years to get the funding to upgrade its new hotel property? Shades of the lovely Miramar.

Stay the course, guys.
