A different morning.

Quiet. Nothing moving. The water still. No breeze. Eerie.

At some point, it will change. Just like that. A breeze will come in off the ocean causing the water and palm trees to get going.

Today is going to be a day from hell for me. Dental surgery again. 9:30. It will be the last pain procedure in the process. I will probably be screwd up for 1-2 weeks.

The pain pills will supercede the blender as my best friend!

Yesterday was a nice Sunday. Amazing how sometimes the best description is the simplest one. Nice.

I received a manicure from Tammy at Lee Nails at noon. Visited with Barbara in the afternoon. Took a ride up the keys. Top down on the convertible. I have Sirius. There is something up in the sky that provides all sorts of radio entertainment. I had it on both my Audi convertibles, but never got it hooked up. It is hooked up this time.

So far, I have arranged to receive five stations. Music from the 40s, 50s, 60s, Sinatra and Broadway. You have not lived till you have experienced buzzing up Route 1 in a convertible with the top down, ocean on both sides as far as the eye can see, and the radio blaring one of these stations. Heaven!

Last night wa Jenna time.

We started at the Gardens. Many people I knew. It took me a while to get seated.

Kate was her usual lovely self. A hug and kiss. I admire her. A smart successful woman. Overflowing with charm.

Jenna and I had a drink and chatted. It was the perfect setting. Palm and other trees galore. Music playing.

Then to the Chart Room.

Don and Chris are in town from Syracuse. Good friends. We have not hooked up yet this trip. We did not meet last night either. They were not at the Chart Room when I was. Emily said we were missing each other. We may have missed each other this trip for good. After my surgery this morning, I will not be going out this evening. I will be in bed dying. Chris and Don leave Key West in the morning.

Jenna and I were off to Hot Tin Roof for dinner. We shared appetizers and watched the first half of the Miami/Dallas game. Afterwards, I dropped her off at her home and headed over to Don’s Place to watch the rest of the game.

Boomer was bartending. I offered he and his  lady the use of my home. Their place had a fire at 4:30 yesterday morning. Bomer lives across the street from Jenna. Boomer declined my offer. Apparently they are settled in elsewhere.

Fires are dangerous to begin with. Even more so in Key West. Most homes are constructed of wood and are 50 plus years old. The wood is dry. The homes are nestled close together. A fire can spread rapidly to nearby homes. The fire department did well, however. The fire was contained to Boomer’s place.

Dallas won! A big deal! A very big deal! Congrats to them. They were decidedly the better team in the finals. For Miami, there is always another time. The dream team will make it. Possibly even next year.

An observation. Money cannot buy titles. Consider the New York Yankees and Miami Heat.

The time is close. I am mentally ready for this morning. Though I hate having to go through it again. Thank God for pain killing drugs!

Enjoy your day. Mine is going to be absolutely awful!

  1. A PAINFUL TWO WEEKS AND MEALS FROM THE BLENDER BUT JUST THINK WHAT A CHARMER YOU'LL BE WHEN YOU FLASH THOSE NEW PEARLY WHITES. YOU'LL HAVE TO BEAT THE LADIES OFF WITH A STICK.
    I HAVE A FEELING THAT MIGHT ALREADY BE THE CASE.

  2. Hi Lou, too bad we kept missing each other. We had a large crew down here on this trip to celebrate my 50th birthday. Good luck on the teeth and we'll contact you next month when we return so we can plan lunch/dinner. Don & Chris.

  3. Good luck with your surgery Mr. Petrone. My husband and I are heading to Key West June 17-20 and were hoping to finally meet you at one of your favorite establishments. Perhaps another time. Take care and gte plenty of rest!
