Slept late this morning.
Woke to big time thunder. Loud and continuous. It’s going to rain soon.
Very humid this morning. I have the window open so I can see the water and the lone palm tree. The hot air is blowing in.
Yesterday can best be described as a pleasant one.
I lunched at the Paradise Cafe. Cuban toast with melted cheese and tomato. Read the papers.
Then to Borders for a couple of hours. I am into a book about the last 30 days of World War II. I keep drifting from the Truman book. Too long. Like War and Peace. Someday I will finish it, however.
Lisa, Corey and the grandkids came over around 5. Thanks to Robert I now have bloodied sheets!
Robert and Ally love to jump up and down on my bed and roll around. Robert had scrapped his knee earlier in the day. The band aid came off. So did the blood. All over my white blanket and light blue sheets! How am I going to explain that one to the cleaning lady?
The Chart Room was busy again last night. The Golden Girls were in. Jane and Debbie. Che, Marty, David and Sean also. Great conversations, back and forth. A person could never write the dialogue I hear there every night.
Every one has been reminding me that I left out one of the “regulars” who has a name plate and hole on the bar rail. May I be forgiven!
He is Panamah Peat. Yes, I spelled his first name correctly. It has an h at the end.
Panamah is still alive. He makes jewelry. Occasionally he works at Mel Fisher Museum, also.
I have never met him. He apparently does not frequent the Chart Room as much as he once did.
Marty and I had dinner at the bar at Square One. It was good to see Patticakes and Michael and other friends. A great meal, also! It was supplement my iron intake time last night. A steak and spinach!
On my way home I decided to stop at Don’s place. Don returned Wednesday from a month long vacation at some lake in Indiana. I had not seen him yet.
He was not there. Means he is not drinking.
Don gives up alcohol consumption for the whole month of his summer vacation every year. It is dry out time, as he desccribes it. I am assuming he is continuing the healthy life for a few days longer. Worry not, he will return!
My bocci partner Jules was there with her husband Jim. Also, Jules’ childhood friend Maria who is visiting from Tampa. Kurt was bartending. Good people! I enjoyed the company of all!
The night got even better after I fell asleep. I woke in the middle of the night. The TV was on. And so was Mamma Mia!
I loved that movie! Meryl Streep was terrific! It was a happy film!
I caught the last 15 minutes of it!
I worked hard on some paper work this week. I plan on a Louis weekend. Yesterday is a reflection of what today and tomorrow will be. I may go onto Duval to see all the Hemingway look alikes walking around. Tomorrow there is an art show at Green Parrot. Who knows! What ever the mood and the moment direct!
This being retired can be difficult!
Enjoy your day!
