One of my happiest days as a father. When the kids were little, I took them Trick or Treating. I would stand on the sidewalk as they ran up to the front door of each house.
Their excitement became mine.
When we got home, we would lie on the living room carpet and go through the goodies. Me, too! I enjoyed the excitement of….Look what I got! I enjoyed also in joining them eating the unhealthy food.
Their mother was always in the background yelling at me to “stop letting them eat that garbage.”
Those were the days.
I have been in quarantine again for 3-4 months. Sick of it!
Next saturday will be 2 weeks since my booster shot. I can’t wait. I am getting stir crazy. I am going out next saturday!
I missed Fantasy Fest this week. All I have are some newspaper photos to show me what is going on.
From my perspective, nothing should have been. Key West cancelled the parade and other public events. However everything else was planned, open and available.
Saw a picture of the Zombie Bike Riders. Three different streets. Crowded shoulder to shoulder as far as the eye could see. Everyone made up to look like zombies.
The zombie parade begins at the cemetery. Because of the crowd, three separate streets were used. Each ending up in the same place on Duval.
There was also a photo of costume dressed people marching down Duval all excited. Not as many as the zombie event, but enough.
My age affects my thinking process. I believe all of Key West should have been shut down. No partying anywhere, inside or out.
COVID is not behind us. Yes, the numbers are better in Florida the past 2 weeks. Guaranteed the numbers will be up in Key West in 2 more weeks. COVID must have had a field day this past week while enjoying Fantasy Fest together with the humans.
Facebook has billions with which to operate. Whatever they do should be better than what has been done. All of Facebook’s problems probably could have been avoided with better care being taken in the formulation/development of new steps.
The most recent example being the new name for Facebook revealed this past week by Zuckerberg: META, short for Metaverse.
Facebook blew it!
The term META is traceable to “dead” in Hebrew. Israelis have been mocking the name. Someone developed a new hashtag: #Facebook Dead.
When it rains, it pours!
Lori has been cutting my hair for more than 25 years. We have become friends.
I got a haircut about a week ago. Lori told me she and her husband were going camping this weekend. Where, I asked? In the Everglades.
Sounded strange to me. I have been through the Everglades by car several times and once by a 24 hour boat trip.
I asked why would you want to go to the Everglades to camp.
They have done it before. They were going with another couple this time. The others like to swim. Swim!!! They’ve got to be crazy!
Lori agreed. She refuses to go in the water. There are alligators everywhere. And who knows what else.
This blog appears also in Feedspot everyday. Feedspot carried an article today: Snorkeling in the Florida Everglades.
No way, Jose! Some people are just plain crazy!
Gas prices have been going up the past several months. COVID and the supply line problems the reasons given why.
Saudi Aramco announced yesterday that it had posted a 160 percent rise in profit for the third quarter just ended. In dollars, the profit amounted to $30.4 billion.
We have been warned gas prices will continue to go up. Aramco announced they expected the next few quarters to be even better.
President Biden and Communion. An ongoing issue.
Prior to Biden’s visit with the Pope, several American bishops wrote the Pope chastising him for meeting with Biden. The reason being Biden supports legalized abortion.
Recall a good number of American bishops are anti-Pope Francis. They want him removed from the Papal Office for a number off reasons. They are joined in the effort by Steve Bannon and Newt Gingrich.
The Pope handled the matter well.
In their face to face meeting, Francis called Biden a “good Catholic” and said he should continue receiving Communion.
That same day, Biden and his wife received Communion at St. Patrick’s Church in Rome. St. Patrick’s a part of Francis’ archdiocese. Father Joe Ciccone is Vice-Rector at St. Patrick’s. He said, “When you are a public figure you have to make certain decisions, especially in a democracy, on behalf of more than just your own personal feelings.”
The Atlanta Braves continue to have a nick name problem. A number of people want the name “Braves” removed.
It’s World Series time. Last night, Trump and wife attended the game in a private box. They were seated up front in the box. They smilingly joined the rest of the fans who stood and did the “Tomahawk Chop.”
The term is considered racist and demeaning by Native Americans.
Syracuse won again yesterday. Beat Boston College 21-6. Hope we win a couple more.
