Good morning world!
We had a few days of warm here in Key West. So I assumed the weather had turned. In fact, yesterday I even stated that Spring had arrived.
Well, I was wrong. Nature is like a woman. Unpredictable! It was cold yesterday and last night. Mid to high 60s. Last night was especially crispy.
Key West is hopping with tourists. The streets are crowded. Every one obviously having a good time. Which is good!
I stopped into the Chart Room before dinner last night. Ran in to a nice couple who had just checked into the Pier House. The Chart Room is located in the Pier House.
Louis and Jane.
Our conversation started when the bartender called me Louis. The gentleman next to me said his name was Louis also. Then we got into the why we were so named, our heritages and so forth. I pointed out I was of Italian extraction and was named after my grandfather who had been born in Italy. My new found friend Louis was of German extraction and had a similar story.
Louis and Jane are from New Orleans. I asked why they were in Key West when this was Mardi Gras time. They said that is why they left.
Louis and Jane have lived in New Orleans all their lives and apparently have experienced one Mardi Gras too many. So they leave during Mardi Gras time.
Their first visit to Key West.
We had pleasant conversation. I played tourist guide and suggested several places to them.
Then I was off to La Trattoria and dinner at the bar. Beeca was especially lovely last night. A new hair do. I complimented her on it.
I had this craving for carbs. Unusual. I gave in. Lasagna! Absolutely delicious! Apparently I needed it!
Then I was off to La Te Da. Debra and Patrick time. She has such a terrific voice!
The place was packed. People dancing. Every one was there. I had a very enjoyable evening chatting with friends.
It is still cold this morning. The sun is shinning brightly. There are no clouds. But cold it is! My home is on open water and the wind from the north west is brutal. If it is cold here, it must be colder up north!
Lisa just called. Robert is 4 and attends Montessori. Lisa was excited. Robert can recite the months of the year! Last week it was the days of the week! And before that, counting by 10s to a 100! All exciting!
Enjoy your day!
