Today was absolutely outstanding yesterday!
The show featured Key West for 2 hours. Perfectly!
Everything on Today was the real Key West. No politicians, no phoney boloneys.
Every one and every thing featured was what we locals know and appreciate.
Familiars faces and places.
I was pleased to see Bob from Hogfish, Kermit from Key Lime Pie, Howard Livingston (2 times), King Timothy, Queen Kate, Fast Buck Freddies, the Red Pepper, Hemingway House, the Trolley, Mallory Square characters (in the early morning) and on and on.
All well known to we who live in Key West and to the viewers who might have visited here.
Congratulations to Today for the quality of the show. Congratulations also to the on screen locals who helped make the Today show the highlight it was. My congratulations extends also to those locals behind the scenes who worked to make the show a representative success.
Of course, I did not go down to the Westin to see Today in person. I watched from my bed. Too early for me to be up and out!
I had a quiet lunch yesterday at the Yacht Club. Read the papers.
Then to Borders to read. I have to be Borders’ best non paying customer.
When I returned home, Lisa was here with the grandkids swimming. A joy!
Last night I hit the Chart Room first. Dead! Where is every one? Second night in a row it has been empty!
I went over to La Trattoria for dinner. I did not believe what I saw! Not one person at the bar! Only a couple of tables in service!
The Chart Room is a locals place. So I do not understand why no one was there.
La Trattoria is more of a tourist place. It is summer time. That would explain it.
Erin was grumbling a bit. All of a sudden, 5 customers showed up at the bar. A whole party of 5!
Erin said I brought her good luck!
And then the restaurant started filling a bit also.
I was home in bed by 9:30.
This morning golf! I can’t wait!
Have fun today!
