This Week on the Island 03/30/2008

'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 picture this week is Wyleigh. She went to 'Doggie Heaven' Monday at 3:00 PM. She was surrounded by her friends and family as she lay on the living room rug in front of the TV. She was a good friend and companion for over 14 years. She will be missed.

The Weather: A cold front on Monday and then back to the 80's with sunny skies.

The book this week was 'Florida Road Kill' by Tim Dorsey. Serge, the serial killer, goes from Tampa to Key West chasing $5 million.

A few weeks ago I wrote about a place on Green Street that has had 5 business in 7 years and a new one was moving in. They have a sign out now it is 'The Sports Page Bar and Grill'. I guess we will see how long they last.

Fast Buck Freddie's on Duval had another place (Half Buck Freddie's) on Caroline Street. It moved to the old P.T's Restaurant Building on Caroline. Now the old Half Buck Freddie's has opened as Half Buck's at Home, a furniture store.

The island is still packed with vacationers everywhere.

Some folks that purchased a house and moved here from Michigan, invited us over for a glass or two of wine Friday night. They are nice folks.
