What a difference a day makes!

I played golf yesterday morning. Sun shining brightly. Warm. Raised a bit of a sweat. When I finished 18, my face was red from the sun.

Then yesterday afternoon, it started raining. Big time! And rained, rained, rained! Through out the night. Still raining this morning. Heavy!

So much rain that the street in front of my home is flooded. I may need a canoe to get out of here!

Great golf yesterday! I played well. Played with good guys! David, Larry, Yankee Jack and Tino. Tino is back from Chicago.

There were 3 winners. Three who tied with the most points. I was one of them. Ho ho! Split $12. Which means I pocketed $4. The amount is immaterial! I was thrilled! A win is a win!

Poor Tino was the big loser! He was welcomed back appropriately. Cost him around $14.

My putting is holding me back. When I could not hit, I putted well. Now that I am crushing the ball, I cannot putt. You figure!

My poor Mercedes is sick! I love the car! Bought it new in 1987. I have cared for it as one would a child since then.

It was driven down to Key West from New York about a month ago. After having been in storage for 5 years. Got to Key West with no trouble.

Then I drove it for a week in Key West. The air conditioning went. One of the back windows would not stay up. There was a noise when it was driven that sounded like a loose fan belt. And a few other little things.

I made arrangements to take it to a garage for servicing yesterday. I got in the car and turned the key. The battery was dead. Nothing.

Called the garage. A tow truck with a bed came over. The reason the car was dead was that the fan belt was wrapped around the fan. Oh, well! I hope my Mercedes will be back and well soon. The car has become a friend and item of pride over the years.

Last night I intended to do dine out and then head over to the Bottle Cap to catch the Larry Smith variety hour live. The heavy rains changed my mind. I stayed in. Cooked for myself. I am getting good at it. Then spent the evening preparing for friday’s radio show.

The Key West Lou Legal Hour this friday has some very interesting topics. Like bullfighting!

A province in Spain recently legislated to outlaw bullfighting. Spains highest court is preparing to hear argument on the constitutionality of the ban. The background to the issue is interesting. There is even a touch of Ernest Hemingway involved.

There will also be comment on the three Iowa Supreme Court Justices who were in effect recalled by the voters yesterday for having voted in favor of gay marriage last year. Conservative Iowans fought back on the issue.

Plus, Californians voted down legalizing marijuana for recreational use. A surprise!

Additionally, I will be touching on the New York City car bomber who was sentenced to life in prison, burqa banning in France and other European countries, Islam and two teenage girls executed by a firing squad in Somalia for allegedly spying, dumb criminals, and more.

Listen in. On the radio at KONK 1500 AM. Worldwide on the internet for both watching and listening at http://www.konkam.com/. All at 10 am on friday! Tomorrow!

Bocce tonight! Good luck! I doubt if the rain will cease and desist. Even if it does, I doubt the clay courts will be dry enough to play.

Tonight is a big night otherwise! A proud moment for the Florida keys! An even prouder moment for my friend Howard Livingston!

Howard’s new TV show debuts tonight on national television. Channel 354. DirectTV. At 9 pm.

Howard will be in 32 million homes tonight!

Good for you, Howard!

Watch the show everyone! Howard is the best!

Enjoy your day!

  1. Louis,

    Small world. The chief justice of the Iowa Supreme court, Marsha Ternus, who was voted out, is from our hometown, Vinton Iowa.

    I went to school with her younger sister and have known Marsha since grade school.

    As Cindy told you last year, Vinton Iowa is the center of the universe. πŸ™‚

    Have a great day and don't let the detractors get you down.

    Tom & Cindy

  2. As always it's a nice break in the day to read your blog.

    Sucks about the rain, but it sounds like you made the best of it.

    I agree about winning $$$ – When golfing with friends, I'd rather win $1.00 and have bragging rights than win $100. It's harder to gloat when I've beaten them out of big bucks.

    Had a similar problem with my mercedes. Only mine was the serpentine belt. When that sucker goes, NOTHING works. NOT cool at all.

  3. Lou –

    I'm laughing so hard here I nearly fell off my stool! Really I was looking back at some of the utter lies and nonsense that someone decided to post on your blog. Talk about a cheap anonymous shot!

    Anyone and everyone that knows you knows that you wear your heart on your sleeve. You generally speak what you feel and it's always truthful. Trouble is there are some people in your past life that can't face the truth, even though it can set them FREE.

    Please keep up the fine work on this blog. It's truly a peaceful diversion from my daily routine!

  4. Lies?

    What lies?

    All posters have been stating the truth.

    You just can't handle the truth!

    Oh and time to junk the car. Go green! If you lived in Key West proper, you wouldn't need the car! Bike! Scooter! GO GREEN!
