A kiss is but a kiss: Salty smooches at the Dolphin Research Center
I get lucky sometimes. Once a year or so my brother and his S.O. (who is the medical director of the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys) need a break from their life with dolphins. And when they take a vacation, they need someone trustworthy to come down and stay at the DRC to keep an eye on things after hours--like baby sitting the dolphins so they don't have wild parties, maybe. When I'm asked, being supremely trustworthy, I go. This time, for the first time in three years, my wife, Terry, was able to come with me. Here are some pix from our eight-day stay.

It's all done with hand signals and fish for a reward. For me, it's good bourbon and a cigar.
One if by hand, two if by sea: Training is done with hand signals and fish.
