This Week on the Island 11/23/2014

‘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.
Weather: A cold front came thru on Thursday with lots of rain and 63 degrees. It continued to rain on Friday and Saturday.
This week I started ‘The Canterbury Tales’ by Geoffrey Chaucer. I found them at
So I saw someone posted on Facebook, How to Make a Lemon Pie .So I made one. 2 cans of sweet condensed milk (1300 calories each), ¾ cup lemon juice (0 calories) and 1 gram cracker pie crust (80 calories). That is 2,680 calories. Bad news is, it sure is good, good news is it cleaned out my system which equaled loss weight. Think I will have some more today.
The city has decorated the coconut trees from Conch Republic Seafood to Lazy Way Lane at the bight. Took this picture at 5:30 AM this morning while walking the dogs.
Jo’s rose out front is blooming.
The house next door has been decorated for Christmas for 2 weeks now. I could be living next door to the Griswalls. (Chevy Chase movie).
The power company removed the palm trees from the front of our house. They had grown into the power lines overhead.

We leave you this week with the moon at the end of the 7 mile bridge.
 Key West you have got to love it
