This Week on the Island 10/08/2006

'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.
On Friday, Jo came to Miami, loaded me in the Hummer, and helped me escape back to the island. Made a walk around the block and up Lazy Lane on Friday afternoon. I was worn out by the time we got back home. Saturday and Sunday we added another block to walk. We are now up to 8 blocks for each walk. Just look for the old guy with the gray hair and the walker.

Spent Sunday afternoon at Schooner Wharf listening to Michael McCloud. It was good to be together with the family again.

I want to say 'Thank You' to all of you that send emails. I didn't know I had so may friends.

Somewhere in the operation they seem to has cut my emotions and pain controls. We have talked about the pain, but I also seem to get very emotional about things that I didn't know I cared that much about. Some things that get me emotional are things that happen a long time ago that I didn't show emotions about when they happened. I also want to cry when I think of my dog, Nevada, that went to Doggie Heaven 2 1/2 years ago.

Key West, You have got to love it
