Weather: Beautiful all week.
This week I started ‘Tropical Freeze’ by James W. Hall.
The Spanish named the place Florida because of all the flowers.

We had a strange smell in the house that smelled like cat urine. It ended up being a guava fruit I had picked up on one of our dog walks. It has been thrown out. It is about the same size as a lime.
Key West you have got to love it
