This Week on the Island 10/09/2011

'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 Parrot Heads (Jimmy Buffett fans) will be coming to Key West for their annual visit (The Meeting of the Minds) the first part of November. Therefore, for the next few weeks, I will be having pictures that they may find interesting.
The first picture this week (click to enlarge) is ‘The very first Margaritaville’, It was at Lands End next to Turtle Krawls. The second picture is ‘Margaritaville’ on Duval. The Third Picture is ‘Captain Tony’s Saloon’ on Green Street. The forth picture is ‘Kinko’s’ the sandal shop across from Captain Tony’s.

Weather: A cool front moved thru dropping the temperature to the mid 80’s. We cut off the A/C and opened the doors and windows. It is wonderful.

This week I finished ‘Thirst’ by Dania Deschamps.

Not a lot happening on the island this week.

There was a TV series called ‘Key West the TV series’. It is on You Tube
It is really dumb, but if you watch the background you can try to guess where the actors are in Key West. You also see what Key West looked like in the early 1990’s.

If you are an old guy that served in the military, you may be interested in the Vietnam Virtual Wall at .You can click the middle of the screen on the left and bring up names by State and City.

Key West, You have got to love it
