This Week on the Island 02/16/2014

‘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: Some of that cold from up north finally made it to Key West. It only got up to the low 70’s a few days this week. Lots of bright sun shine.
No book this week.
This week was the anniversary of the sinking of the USS Maine. It blew up in Havana harbor and the US went to war with Spain. The picture is the USS Maine burial section of the Key West cemetery.

We had a baby turtle (slider) born this week. The coin is a nickel.

We also had one of Jo’s co-workers deliver a tortoise (land turtle that really gets big) to our house.

This week also was Valentine’s Day. This is Jo, the love of my life.

Our new dog Tyler has become my new dance partner at Schooner Wharf when Michael McCloud plays ‘Schooner Wharf Bar Dog’.

Key West you have got to love it
