I had the pleasure of enjoying breakfast at the Broken Egg on Siesta Key with some great people who also live in the Sarasota area.  I had a blast talking it up with NFL stars, Mike Gruttadauria and Tom Nutten, as well as with Dick Smothers of the hilarious, Smothers Brothers.  They were all there to participate in the kick-off for the Muscular Dystrophy fundraising campaign at the Broken Egg.  The campaign is led by the one and only, Betty Matthews, who dedicates her efforts to raising money for this important cause.  Last year, the Broken Egg raised over $10,000 for MDA and they hope to match it or even exceed it this year.

Tom and Mike were NFL teammates for the St. Louis Rams, and were Super Bowl Champs under the leadership of Dick Vermeil.  Tom, Mike, Dick SMothers and "Yours Truly" all had a great time and patrons of the Broken Egg generously gave to support the MDA campaign.  We certainly had a blast signing autographs and taking pictures with guests and Betty worked tirelessly to spark a lot of excitement for this fundraising effort.  It was a special and fun-filled morning.
