This Week on the Island 12/14/2003

'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.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This week I read another book by Laurence Shames titled 'Welcome to Paradise'. There are two Big Al's. one from New York and one from New Jersey. They both come to Key West for a vacation. An enemy in New York send some guys to get Big Al in Key West. They get the wrong guy. It is really funny.

The Southernmost Parrot Head Club had 5 events this week. (1) The results of our elections for officers for 2004. [My team was re-elected.] (2) Our Christmas Party. [We had a wonderful time] (3) Our selling Christmas Trees at the Marc House on Saturday. [ It was in the mid 80's] (4) Our selling of Christmas Trees at the Marc House on Sunday. [ The temperature dropped to the high 60's]. (5) We donated $500 to the MARC House. [Monroe County Association For Retarded Citizens.]

Wednesday it was in the low 80's, so Jo and I and Wyleigh Dog went to sit in the sun and listen to Michael McCloud at Schooner Wharf Bar. Friday afternoon I lay in my hammock in the back yard and worked on my tan. Life is good.

Saturday night we had to turn the air conditioning on. Sunday we have another cold wave moving thru and the temperature dropped to the high 60's.

Buffett has left the island.
