Good morning world!
The weather is fantastic here in Key West! A long time in coming. But better late than never!
The radio show was terrific yesterday! Cheryl telephoned while I was on the air which made it even better. She is somewhere on her way home to the Chicago area with husband Roger.
I added a last minute bit about the economic stimulus to the show.
One of yesterday’s Key West local newspapers had a story about the street/sewer construction going on in Key West all of a sudden. It seems every other street is torn up. Detours all over the place.
It is the stimulus money Obama signed into law last year!
Seems it finally trickled down to Key West. There is a deadline for its use. Sometime in July. The Key West city fathers do not intend to miss a penny of it. Work being done all over the place. Which means jobs all over the place, even if temporary.
Hopefully more stimulus will be available as time goes on.
I was and am thrilled that I can finally see and experience the stimulus package at work. Good for Obama and good for us!
Saw my heart doctor yesterday afternoon. He is happy with my progress. Should be! Since my disaster last fall, I have stopped smoking and drinking. And lost 30 pounds to boot!
What a good boy am I!
The egg cutter saga. I returned to the Restaurant Store with the egg cutter I had purchased the day before. Not a big deal. A $5 item.
I told the woman who had taken care of me of my plight. I had hand washed the metal cutter before using it. The result was a gray soot. I then washed it in the dish washer. Same result. Then I hand washed it again. Still black soot.
I should not have used the dishwasher, she said. That is what caused the black stuff. She made it sound like it was my fault.
I had brought a clean tissue with me. In anticipation of needing to demonstate the problem. I hand swiped the egg cutter. Black on the tissue! I do not intend to eat eggs off this, I politely said.
She agreed to return my money. I said I do not want my money back. I want an egg cutter. They had another one on the counter made of plastic. A bit more expensive. I took the plastic one and paid the difference.
I thought she had a poor attitude. She did. Why blame me for using the dishwasher! What do I know about these things! Anyhow I do not believe the dishwasher had anything to do with it. The soot was there after the first hand washing job.
Lisa brought Robert and Ally over later in the afternoon to swim. I was ready for them. Especially Ally. The egg cutter was for her. I had hard boiled eggs before they arrived.
I made a production out of slicing a hard boiled egg. Let Ally press the lever down. She was thrilled! I was thrilled! Poppa had done good!
We all ate hard boiled eggs.
I was stuffed afterwards. Sufficiently that I did not go out to dinner last night. It was early to bed.
I am to be at Larry Smith’s at 10 this morning. Larry, Don, Tino, Alec, Petra, Kathleen, me and I cannot recall who else are trying to put together a Key West radio/TV show. This will be our third meeting. I do not know what will come of it. From a simple half hour talk show, it has grown into a big time variety production exhibiting various Key West talents and attributes.
Enjoy your day!
