Gloves!

Those things that every one in the northeast is wearing during one of the worst snow storms in years!

Guess what! People are wearing them in Key West, also! Not many. But some.

That is how cold it is here in Key West! Last night the temperature dropped to 47. The high today is 57. The weather report is to the effect that an Artic freeze has blown down upon us. It has!

Yesterday, I stopped at Don’s Place to watch pro football. My group sits outside in the back. Every one was dressed warmly. I had on long pants, a shirt, a sweat shirt and a jacket. And I was cold! Don was the first I noticed wearing gloves.

Don had also acquired two propane heaters. So we all sat out in the cold with the heaters providing a bit of warmth. Only a bit!

Crazy! No, stupid! Even animals know to get out of the cold!

I stayed about an hour and then headed over to Lisa’s. I had promised to take the grandkids to the golf course to try out their new clubs. I was hopeful Lisa would say it was too cold for them. She did not.

Away we went.

Robert was cute. A baseball cap sideways on his head. The bag of clubs slung over his shoulder. The clubs were too heavy for Ally. I carried hers.

We stayed at the golf course for an hour. I had them pitching and putting. I taught them that the club with the P on it was a pitching wedge to be used around the green. I also explained what the green was. Putting they understood.

The wind was tough! A couple of times I thought they were going to blow away!

I worked them hard. No rest. They hung in there. Towards the end, Ally was tiring. She showed it. She lay down on the green and told me she did not want to play any more.

The one year difference in age was evident. At 6, Robert is much more coordinated and focused.

We returned to Lisa’s. I hung out. Read the Sunday papers and watched football. Had dinner with the family.

Corey’s father in law Curtis was still visiting. His birthday is this week. They had a surprise birthday party for him. The grandkids were all excited. Curtis appreciative.

My intent was to visit the Gardens. It has been weeks since I last was there. As I walked to my car, I realized how cold it was. The Gardens were not to be. I headed home to the comfort of my warm bed.

Terri sings again tonight! The Crystal Room at La Te Da. If you are in Key West, go see her! An experience you will long remember!

  1. Lou –

    Just returned from a 10 day trip which included some cruise time and some beach time.

    I just wanted to wish you a belated Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to easily one of the nicest, kindest, most human beings I've ever met. YOU-DA-MAN.

  5. Louis,

    Who is this lurker that signs as Aloha and comments like an obnoxious 12 year old? I bet his parents don't know that he knows how to unlock their keyboard.
