This Week on the Island 09/14/2008

'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 (click to enlarge) is ‘The Roof Top Café’ on Front Street close to Mallory Square. They are doing some remodeling.

The Weather: Hurricane Ike followed by a beautiful weekend.

The book this week was ‘Brave New World’ by Aldous Huxley.

Not many visitors this week, another hurricane. Mandatory evacuation.

Living in the Key’s: Months and months of ideal living followed by hours of sheer terror.

Our A/C quit on Sunday night. It is still in the mid 80’s here with lots of humidity. We have the doors and windows open and are getting a nice breeze from Hurricane Ike. We can’t get anyone to look at the A/C until the repair people get back to the island. Thursday the A/C has been repaired. I think the huskies are more relived than I am.
