Busy yesterday. Did nothing out of the ordinary, however.
Started with a noon haircut appointment with Lori. Always a pleasure to spend time with Lori. Fifteen plus years now.
The Cuban Coffee Queen is around the corner from Blown Away. The heat/humidity too heavy to eat outside. Decided to pick up some things at Publix and feed myself at home.
Driving the Publix motivation was the fact that I had been dreaming for a couple of days of a home prepared chicken sandwich.
Bought a lemon pepper chicken.
Lunch was the desired chicken sandwich. A large soft roll. A thick slice of white chicken breast. Covered with a slice of tomato. A bit of salt and pepper. Then mayonnaise.
A dream come true!
Screwed around on the computer in the afternoon searching for a KONK column topic to do. Came up with nothing that excited me.
The Chart Room first last night. John told me Tom and Fran had been in earlier looking for me. Telephoned them. They were at Kermit’s enjoying key lime pie. Told me they would shortly join me.
Spent some time with Tom and Fran enjoying a couple of drinks. Then they were off to do sunset. Knew one of the entertainers and wanted to visit with him. The man with the cats jumping through hoops of fire.
I went across the street to the Hot Tin Roof for dinner. Enjoyed lamb chops again.
Joseph still on the mend. There is a new general manager. JP. We were introduced.
The Noble Group is not screwing Joseph. As I understand, there is an office job awaiting him when he returns.
Joseph has graduated from a walker to two canes. Progress slow.
Hello Jim Wenzel! Close friend of Tom Dixon. Both Buffalo bred. Jim now resides in Tampa. Tom told me he turned Jim on to the blog and he now reads it daily.
Welcome and thank you, Jim!
On the way back to my car, I passed the Chart Room. Ollie was at the bar. One of the heroes of the Zika test spraying fight. I stopped in to congratulate him. He believes Key Haven will defeat the test spraying proposal.
This week’s KONK Life column is German Persecution of Jews. It was carried this morning on E-Blast and also linked to my Key West Lou column. www.keywestlou.com.
My conscience Patrick posted a comment yesterday morning. He wanted to know why I had not commented on the $4 million/Iran/hostage situation. Simple. I only had the first blast of news. Accusatory. Did not make sense. Thought I should wait a day to see how the story played out.
Glad I delayed. Nothing wrong occurred.
Better safe than sorry. I concede I occasionally jump the gun. Rarely however. Sorry when I do.
Trump was terrific. Claimed he saw the whole thing on video. There was no video. He still kept saying he saw it on video.
Ronald Reagan was a tough guy.
On this day in 1981, he fired 11,359 air controllers. None to ever be rehired. When they struck and walked out two days earlier, he gave them 48 hours to return to work.
The union thought it was calling Reagan’s bluff. no way. He called theirs.
Reagan’s action was the beginning of the fall of union dominance in the United States.
Enjoy your day!
