This Week on the Island 08/20/2017

 ‘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 Weather: Same as last week. Hot and humid until November with a chance of a hurricane.  
The book this week was ‘Honorable Revenge by Mike Pettit.
A new speed record was set this week for a run from Key West to Cuba in 1 hour 18 minutes and 3 seconds.
The entrance to the new park on the Truman Waterfront is taking shape and is open for use.
There is also a new exit on Angela Street.
This building next to Sloppy Joe’s was built as a bank. It has been used for many things since then and it is now being remodeled for its next adventure.
The old Cigar Store on Green Street is now an Ice Cream Shop.
September is the height of hurricane season. They are de-nutting the coconut trees back in Truman Annex.
My right ankle is shot, so I wear a brace. Therefore, I now wear shoes and socks instead of sandals. It sure has messed with my tan.
And last but not less, a beautiful flower out our front door.
