This Week on the Island 04/14/2019


‘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.
The Weather:
I cut the bananas and hung them on the front porch to get ripe. It is about 75 bananas.
Tuesday a sailboat ran into the power lines and put most of the keys in the dark for about an hour and a half.
The Waterfront Brewery has added a ‘BIG’ chair to their front porch.
Thursday was Pet Day.
Sometime during the week, we took another ride down to Fort Zack state park.
This is our form, at the dog park, of sitting on the porch and watching the kids play.
Teeki and some of the husky pack.
Micky Mouse leaving town.
I got a new hat.

The Weather: Beautiful.
The Spring Break seems to be over. They are still here, but not in the numbers they were.
April 1, 1886 Key West burned. The only fire truck in town was in New York for repairs.
Robert the Doll


First Annual Fools Parade. There were only about 12 of us, but I remember how some of the other parades didn’t have many people when they first started. The Locals Parade, The Zombie Bike Ride, etc.

The Weather: A beautiful week.
The Spring Break seems to be over. They are still here, but not in the numbers they were.
On one of our Teeki rides this week we went by Hogs Breath, but Teeki couldn’t get the bartenders attention so we went to Captain Tony’s.

This is on our front porch. It gets lots of attention and pictures taken.
Kenny Chesney dropped by Kermit’s Key Lime Shop.
The replica of Columbus ships The Santa Maria in perspective with a modern cruise ship.
This week was Vietnam Veteran’s Day.
The Blue Angles did a flyover Duval Street.
We leave you with a comment.
And another sunset.
