This Week on the Island 02/20/2005

'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: Another beautiful week.

The Southernmost Parrot Head Club has had a busy week. 1. Our monthly meeting was held at Awful Arthur's on Duval. They have an area with beach sand a tiki bar and picnic tables. Their nacho's were wonderful, and Wednesday is their 'all you can eat' crableg night.2. We had our fund raiser for the Tsunami victims on Friday night at Crabby Bill's on Green Street across from Sloppy Joe's. It was a big success.3. Saturday morning we headed 200 miles north to Ft Lauderdale to the Jimmy Buffett Concert. Need I say more.

Some folks from the Blue Water PHC of Port Huron, MI, dropped by. They brought some club items for the tsunami relief auction on Friday night. They purchased a bunch of our t-shirts and then took me and the dogs to Schooner Wharf for a few beers. WOW, what nice folks.

We also received Club items, for the Friday night tsunami relief auction, from a bunch of other Parrot Head Clubs and I want to thank each of you.

I have purchased another vehicle to get around the island. It is a white 1992 Suzuki Samurai convertible. From the windshield to the roll bar is a bikini top; from the seats to the rear is a dust cover; and that makes it look like a little truck. It is a beat up little thing, but that is what I wanted. I guess that next I will need to paint some parrots on it.

------------------------------------------Interesting---------------------------------------------A local guy was digging in his yard and found a WWII bomb. He put it in his pick-up truck and drove it to the police station. He then carried it and put it on the receptionist desk. They had to evacuate the Police and Fire Stations while the bomb squad deactivated the bomb. I love living here.
