I came home early last night so as to hear Sarah Palin’s address. She was scheduled to appear at 10:30. I was in bed at 9.
Too early! I fell asleep and missed her speech! I was wakened at 11:30 by the sound of my cell’s text beep. It was my friend Mike Yutzy from Phoenix who wanted to know what I thought about Palin’s performance. I missed it! Told him I would catch it on the reruns during the course of the evening.
And I did. So I slept little last night.
Golf yesterday! I played with Yankee Jack and Tino. Yankee just returned from his August gigs up North. North being Maine, New York, Massachusetts and the like. Good to have him back! He is one of the sweetest guys anywhere!
I won $2. A big deal for me! Tino won $21. He and Yankee had a side game. Obviously Yankee was the big loser.
I caught Bobby Nesbitt at Aqua last night. It was his last performance for 5 weeks. He is off to Germany and France. Oh, the life!
As usual, Bobby was terrific! He has a local following that is very dedicated. I am one of them. That brings 20-40 people guaranteed every Wednesday evening. Throw in some tourists and you have quite a gathering for this small intimate show.
The Wednesday early evening gig at Aqua goes on even in Bobby’s absence. Vicky Gennaro is performing in his place. She is the daughter of the Monroe County Mayor and has performed in many venues already. I have not made up my mind as to whether I like her. The jury is still out for me. However I will go and listen and should have made up my mind by the time Bobby returns.
These hurricanes are becoming a pain. And a scare!
Hanna apparently is going to be a 1 when it hits. Fortunately it is going to miss Key West. However it is going to hit somewhere and that is bad!
Ike is beginning to take on the appearnace of a major problem. It is only in mid Atlantic and is already a 4. And appears to be headed directly for the Keys. Pure devistation if it hits and hits at the speed of a Category 4!
Ike worries me! And it is moving forward swiftly. Could be here as early as Sunday! So sayeth TV this morning.
And behind Ike is Josephine which is developing as a physically large storm.
As I understand it, the peak of the hurricane season is reached around September 10th. That does not mean it is all over. These storms can continue into November, but with significant diminishing frequency.
Tonight bocci! I cannot wait!
