Bocci last night!
We won 2 out of 3 games. I played well.
And had fun besides!
The people playing Key West bocci are from all over the world. Europe, Asia and Central America, as well as the U.S. All ages. All come together one night a week to play, drink and have a good time!
Shane is playing with our team this year. He and I partnered up for 2 of the matches last night.
This is Shane’s first year. He is probably in his late 20s. Makes a living with a fishing boat. He has owned one for 3 years. Does private charters.
Shane’s girl friend is Czech. They met here in Key West. She recently returned home to complete her education. Shane just returned from a 3 week visit to her. He had a terrific time! Went to all the right places. Why not! He had a home born travel agent in the girl friend. He was especially taken by Prague.
This is Shane’s first year at bocci. He is good at it and will be fantastic after a year or two. He is a natural born athlete. You can see it. Great eye/hand coordination. The game comes easy to him.
We had won the first game and lost the second. So victory in the third game was important. It came down to the last shot. Shane’s shot! He put the ball where it could not go! We won! Such jubilation!
This market thing eats at me. And every one else. World wide! Except for one place. TV news this morning says the one place where the market shot upward big time yesterday was Bagdad. Would you believe it! There is a message here.
The Presidential campaign is getting down and dirty. Not good. The issues are key. Not distant vague relationships. Mc Cain is not the warrior of 2000 nor is he doing his reputation any good. Victory at any cost is not worthy of him nor the office he seeks. Slug it out toe to toe on the economy and war. Not trash.
I am up early. Still dark. Black. I am going to make a cup of coffee and sit outside and watch the sun rise. Life returns every morning!
