This Week on the Island 10/12/2008

'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 a ‘Willie Ts’ on Duval. Yes, that is dollar bills stapled to the tree and walls.

The Weather: Wonderful

The book this week was ‘Emerson’s Essays’ by Ralph Waldo Emerson. (Same as last week)

We are still into the slow time of the year.

The sons of Italy had their 3rd annual ‘Pasta in the Park’ on Saturday.

The Shrimp Shack held a fund raiser on Friday to help the Cuban animals that were victims of Hurricane Ike.

Cowboy Bill’s celebrated there 2nd annual party on Friday night.

We have some friends from Chicago in for a couple of weeks.

I rode my bicycle to the graveyard and collected some of the coconuts that they trimmed last week.

Friday was another long day with a ride on the bus to the VA in Miami. It has been two years since my knee replacement surgery. It appears that I am doing fine.
