Same as the last 4 weeks. Wonderful. Lots of sun, blue skies and white clouds.
In the mid 80’s in the day and the mid 70’s at night. It is now hotter up north
than it is here on the island. Columbia, SC 93 degrees.
this week was ‘Collateral Damage’ by Stuart Woods.
was Cinco de Mayo with celebrations all around town. I of course went to the
taco eating contest at Schooner (not as a contestant). Each contestant got some
tacos, a hot pepper, a Coroner, and a shot of tequila. Free food.
there was a gremlin shark caught in our waters that attracted national news.
was Songwriters Week here in Key West with writers and singers showing their
stuff at locations around Old Town. Lots of locations each day. Saturday there was
a concert on Duval by Sloppy Joes. http://www.keywestsongwritersfestival.com/
we took a road trip in the ‘new’ 2002 Chevy Tracker. We went to Marathon to see
Dr. Doug to have Boca’s left front food looked at. He has been limping lately.
He had an infection in his foot and will be on drugs.
may remember Harbor House on Lazy Way Lane and this building
they tore it down and built this building as part of the 96 room hotel on Lazy
we will go to Schooner to celebrate Mother’s Day/my birthday. It is the big 7-0
