The Today show is in town! Matt Lauer and Ed Roker.
They are down at the Westin.
Too early for me to be there. I am watching the show on TV as I write this blog.
Glad to have them here in Key West!
I used to watch the Today show religiously. Then came Morning Joe. No comparison! I am hooked on Morning Joe! I am awake every morning at 6 to watch it!
I spent yesterday in. Paper work again.
Last night, I hit the Chart Room first. It was just me and Michael the bartender. No one else!
Marty was still home in Hallendale. He had a stress test yesterday. We talked afterward. He did well, though a bit tired. Captain Peter had been in and left. Sean had not been in at all.
While I was enjoying my drink, Kurt showed up. Kurt is the late afternoon/evening bartender at Don’s Place. So I had never seen him at the Chart Room.
Turns out it was Kurt’s night off. Also, his friend Richard was playing the drums with Larry at the Wine Galley.
I had planned on having dinner at La Trattoriria. Kathy was bartending. However I opted to join Kurt and listen to Richard.
I had a light bite to eat at the Wine Galley bar.
Then the world showed up! From Don’s Place. Even Don! And Michelle! And at least a dozen others.
Richard appears to be an accomplished percussionist! He blended well with Larry. Alex was blowing his horn.
All in all, a pleasant evening.
Humid this morning. And overcast. Looks like rain at some point. Wind strong, though. And from the north. So it could pass over. Probably will.
For whatever reason, I have found that a wind from the south guarantees rain. Whereas a wind from the north means not necessarily so.
Wowie! My friend Howard Livingston and Mile Marker 24 are on the Today show. Singing “Living on Key West Time!”
Now Roker is showing and talking about the 4,000 chickens running around the island.
Today seems to be picking up on the real Key West. They already have featured the Hemingway House and the Little White House.
I am going back to bed to watch the rest of Key West on Today.
Enjoy your day!
