This Week on the Island 04/27/2008

'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 Boca. A new husky member of our family. Jo, Sassi, and I drove up north to America to pick him up at Melbourne, FL.

The Weather: Wonderful

The book this week was 'The Iliad and The Odyssey' by Homer.

Tuesday, Jo and I took Sassi and Bo and walked the 3 miles (round trip) to Bayview Park and back. There was a celebration for Earth Day.
