(Papa) ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S key west Home

Since we were in Key West, we couldn't pass up the chance to check out Ernest Hemingway's winter home. Hemingway was most likely the most famous American author of all time! He was also a womanizer, a great fisherman and Hunter, and an adventurer.
The Hemingways had homes in Key West Fl., Cuba before 1961 and Sun Valley, Id. Geni & I lived in Sun Valley Idaho for over 15 years, we met his Granddaughters' Margo and Maryiall.
I was in his HBO movie "HEMINGWAY" , they hired me as an extra ( a FBI agent that they cutout) and the sheriff that directed cars into the cemetery at his funeral. They also rented my 1957 Buick Special car. Stacy Keach was the actor that play Hemingway.
“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived that distinguish one man from another.”- Ernest Hemingway"
