Blog late! Slept late! Sorry!
Yesterday’s radio show went well. I enjoy doing it. Actually, I love doing it!
Based on post show comments, two topics affected listeners the most. Crime and Social Security.
Crimes involved the Philadelphia abortionist who killed seven fetus’s born alive by snipping their spines with a scissor and the Oakland, California second graders having oral sex in the classroom. These disgusting events were reported this past week. Just when you think you have heard it all, something new and more shocking pops up.
I hit Social Security hard. The American people are getting a crock of improper information from the right. Social Security is not insolvent. It will be either 8 years or 24 years before there is a problem. Deal with the other issues at this time which are critical at the moment. Deal with Social Security later in a precautionary fashion to make sure no problems occur down the road.
After the show, I was off to the Coffee House. Packed! Tourists and locals. I was lucky to get my favorite chair. Sipped coffee and read the New York papers.
Saw Jane. My Coffee House friend. It has been months since we have run into each other. She is truly a beautiful person. I love her personality, smile and clothes. She is a matronly woman. I suspect older than I. She dresses in long flowing white garments. Glides through a room.
Walked a bit on Duval. A lot of tourists. The sidewalks were crowded. It was cold. Too cold for the beach. So they were walking around.
I spent the afternoon writing. I enjoy the experience.
Last night was a big one! I stayed out till one in the morning! Have not done that in so long I cannot remembr when. I am generally in bed by 10.
Started my evening at the Chart Room. Michael bartending. He was his usual pleasant self. I told Michael I had talked with Marty. Marty has been under the weather a bit of late. Hopefully he will return to Key West soon.
Saw Sean at the Chart Room. Katherine was working. Sean is Key West’s premier reporter.
I was in the mood to see a movie. Walked over to the Tropic Cinema and saw The King’s Speech. Terrific! A winner! Had a slight degree of tenseness to it which was constant through out the movie. My recollectgion is it received 12 Academy Award nominations. Colin Firth was superior in the lead role.
Donna and Terri spent several nights a week at the Monkey Bar while they were here. They told me I should try it. It is a karaoke place. Don and Chris accidently stopped there the last time they were in Key West. A fun place, they reported.
Last night, I tried the Monkey Bar for the first time. I did not sing. I am a coward. A fun place! Marylou and Charlie were there. I met Jordan. An early 20s Conch. Her boy friend runs the karaoke operation. She walks around the bar encouraging people to sing.
On the way home, I decided to stop at Don’s Place. Overflowing with people! Kurt bartending. Don and David there. I had not seen seen David since he and Karen returned from their three week trip to France. A wonderful time, he reported.
I stayed at Don’s Place a while. The three of us talked bocce. Our party is next thursday. similar to a bowling banquet. Except in Key West time and style. The new season starts in two weeks.
What a night! I had a wonderful time! Perhaps I should do it more often. There is no question this new burst of energy I am experiencing made last night possible. People are telling me I am more animated, more alive.
Today is a big one! My day is already scheduled. Syracuse basketball at 3. At the Sports Page Bar. I will probably watch the game with Dan and Lisa from Skaneateles. Afterwards, I must hurry over to Lisa’s. She and Corey have some banquet to go to. Poppa is babysitting!
Enjoy your day!
