about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those
parts that are lies.
Some rain on Tuesday. Rained all day

humidity and low 80’s.
trip up to No Name and pizza for lunch. Looe Key, Mango Mamma’s, Giger Key, KOA
Campground for adult beverages. Roostica for dinner. Then we blew a tire on the
Hummer. $1,800.00 later, a couple of days to get the tires to the Keys and now
the Hummer is ready to go again. Had to replace all 4 as they were dry rotted. This is the Hummer in the paper before we purchased it.

Michael McCloud has
been sick and not at Schooner Wharf since last Wednesday. He was back this
Thursday. The island wasn’t the same without him at Schooner.
The old West Marine on
the corner of Caroline and Williams is being transformed into a gym, a restaurant,
and who-ever they can rent space too.
Grand Funk Railroad
gave a concert at the Truman Waterfront on Saturday. Howard Livingston and the
MM24 Band were there also. We had a great time. Grand Funk wasn't as good as Jo and I remember them, but then that was a while ago.
We end with a pretty
little cactus flower the dogs and I passed on one of our many walks.
