Dave's World

Dave's World

Dave Barry was a syndicated newspaper columnist living in Miami with his perky, supportive wife, Beth, and their two young sons, Tommy and Willie. Dave was a kind of whimsical, overgrown kid who didn't quite understand how to deal with children, technology, changing social values, or the world of the nineties. His off-center reactions to things and observations about the absurdities of life were all grist for his column in the Miami Record-Dispatch, called "Barry's World." Since Dave worked at home, Beth's decision to go back to teaching should not have created problems, but like everything else in Dave's world, the adjustment did not go smoothly. Dave had two close friends, his self-centered womanizing editor, Kenny, who was incapable of sustaining a meaningful relationship, and his college buddy and neighbor Shel, a recently divorced plastic surgeon with a cute young daughter, Carly. Others seen were Kenny's secretary, Mia, with more ambition than talent; Mia's boyfriend, Eric, a handyman with limited skills; and Beth's sister, Julie, a recent divorcee. Ernest, a bloodhound, was the Barry family dog.
