This Week on the Island 06/14/2008
The picture this week (click to enlarge) is Key West Elvis (KWelvis). He has left the island. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=168915869
The Weather: 98 degrees in Columbia, SC. 101 degrees in Raleigh, NC. 98 degrees in New York. 10 inches of snow in Washington state. I’m glad I’m here in Key West where it seldom gets above 90 degrees or below 60 degrees.
The book this week was 'Beowulf’ an epic tale about a Nordic warrior (8th Century). I also read ‘Aristotle’s Ethics- Book One and Book Two’.
Don’t forget ‘Fathers Day’. Sassi and Boca are taking me to Schooner Wharf to listen to Michael McCloud.
National news had a ‘big to do’ about a waterspout off south Florida. For waterspout pictures go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ThisWeekontheIsland/ click PHOTOS and then click WATERSPOUTS.’ Waters around the Keys, especially from Marathon past Key West on westward to the Dry Tortugas, probably see 400 or 500 waterspouts a year. Since they are so common, most go unreported unless they cause damage.’
The old ‘Steam Plant’ at the end of Caroline Street was converted into condos and people started moving in this week. The building of condo’s on the old Jabour’s property seems to have come to a halt. The building on the old Atlantic Shore’s property is proceeding.
An article in the Key West Citizen on Wednesday was about Jimmy Buffett having a problem with the paper The Conch Republic Coconut Telegraph using his term ‘Coconut Telegraph’.
Key West, You have got to love it
