Good morning world!
A nice day in the making outside! We need it! Rained heavy again yesterday. A day of pure unadulterated sunshine required!
Started yesterday at Publix. The cupboard was bare! Needed necessities. Like bread, butter, yogurt and fruit.
Spent the rest of the day inside doing paperwork. And listening to the pouring rain!
The Chart Room was my first stop last night. A good time! Marty, Captain Peter, Che and Sheila.
Where to have dinner? The major decision of the day! We finally decided to stay right at the Pier House and eat at the bar in the Wine Galley. Larry Smith was playing.
So Marty and the Captain and I headed to the Wine Galley. We lost Che and Sheila on the way. Che had something cooking at home. Sheila was tired and wanted to sleep.
Larry was outstanding last night! A real talent! A great entertainer! He has a way of making every one feel happy.
Met some interesting people at the Wine Galley.
Rich and Mary Jim! Happy souls! Live off Boca chica. Not on Boca Chica! They live on a boat! Adventurous people!
John and Philippine were there also. They live on Cudjo Key. Not together. They are two souls who have come together late in life. They appear enamoured and happy. But have decided to conform to old ways and maintain separate residences.
Phillippine is an interesting name. Thought it was Italian. Close to Philomena. When I was young, my grandmother had several lady friends named Philomena. Not Italian, however. German. The old country names do stick!
Catain Peter left us right after dinner. He did not want to drink too much. He had to drive out to his boat.
The Captain lives on a sailboat about 2 miles off shore. He dingies in and back each day. He has a light and small motor.
It was already dark when he left. He was not concerned. He has been doing it for years.
Marty and I chatted for awhile. He had flown to Fort Myers and back on a private charter during the day. A friend had business there. Marty had no work. So Marty kept him company on the flight and shopped all day while his friend was working. What a life!
The weather looks terrific outside my window. I hope it stays this way all day. We have had enough rain the past few days.
Do something good for someone today! Come back and visit with me tomorrow!
