Yesterday was an ordinary day. Especially by Key West standards.
I basically did nothing but personal housekeeping chores.
My day started with a haircut. Always a pleasure to see Lori. We spoke of the grandkids. She does their hair. They were in last Saturday. Ally is becoming a problem. She is strong willed and of a single mind set. Much like her mother was. Ally does not want her hair cut. Only a trim. She has a tiny face. We are lucky to see it!
Following the haircut, I voted. There were only two of us to vote. Contrasted with two years ago when Obama was running and I had to wait 15 minutes. Even though Florida has early voting, I viewed the lack of voters as an indication of a light turnout. Good for who! Good for which party?
Then to the Coffee House. Sipped and read. Browsed through the New York Times. The place was packed. Surprised me. Fantasy Fest is over. Guess there are a lot of vacationers in town. A good time to be here. Great weather. Peaceful.
I had a heart doctor appointment in the afternoon. Thought it was a routine one. Ended up having some tests I had not anticipated. More scheduled for Novemebr 16th. I have to do a stress test, plus some other things.
I put the stress test off two weeks. I am not in shape. Even my walking has been sporadic. A doctor friend in Utica once told me you have to practice for a stress test. I will be signing up at a gym tomorrow and working out, amongst other things, on a tread mill for two weeks in preparation.
Love politics! So I stayed in last night to watch the results. Woke periodically during the night to keep up. We are back to split government. Good? Bad? Who knows anymore.
We are screwed up as a Nation.
There is a quote I have repeated on several radio shows recently. Jesus Christ said it. Matthew recorded it. Lincoln repeated it. Matthew 12:25. “…every city and house divided against itself will not stand.”
A house divided cannot stand!
We must come together!
The Parrotheads are starting to drift into town. By the weekend, there will be thousands here. Jimmy Buffett followers! Middle Americans! Wearing their crazy hats from whence the parrothead designation derives. Having a wonderful time!
The fall has been terrific so far weather wise. Especially since no hurricanes visited us! The temperature has consistently been in the high 80s to low 90s. A cold front is projected for the weekend. Our first one in a long while. The cold front was the talk of the town yesterdy. Locals excited. A bit of cool weather is always welcome.
The temperature will drop to the low 70s! Believe it or not, it will be cool/cold to those living in the keys. Perhaps long pants time.
I know this is a joke to those of you up north. Yesterday the temperature was 41 in upstate New York.
Golf this morning! I have a feeling I will play well. Plus the guys I play with are a joy. Good people all!
Enjoy your day!
