‘This Week on the Island’ is written by Doug Bennett and is an update
to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except
for those parts that are lies.
What a beautiful week. Lots of sunshine,
blue skies and white clouds. Temperature in the high 70’s and low 80’s. People
everywhere. I guess they are tired of the cold.
started with the Half Shell Half Marathon and Howard Livingston and the MM24
we have had the sail boat races. Pics from Rob O'Neal

did that cat go”?
little pineapple by the front walk continues to grow.
be not least, Gold Elvis. I watched this guy work. He stands on his platform
and puts gold beads around passing peoples (women and girls) neck and then
points at his ‘Tips hat’. They all gave him a dollar. He got over $60 in the
hour I watched him. $60 an hour X 8 hour day = $480 a day X 5 day week = $2,400
a week or $120,000 a year with a 2 week vacation. Now I know that it isn’t that
good all the time, but this guy has a pretty good gig.
you have got to love it
