Mark Watson’s fund raiser for Fantasy Fest King/AIDS Help at Aqua last night outstanding! Without question. Seven years since Broadway 3 Years has been presented. The stars returned. Mark Watson, Bobby Nesbitt, Bruce Moore and Chris Thompson.
There was neither a seat nor standing space available. Everyone turned out. Everyone had a terrific time.
I enjoyed the show immensely.
Saw Mary again. Second time in two weeks. Mary was working the door at Aqua. Mary worked for me some 15 years ago taking care of my Key West home. A talented woman.
Decided to eat at La Trattoria after the show. Walked down Duval. La Trattoria closed. Decided on La Trattoria on the Ocean where I had been last week. The egg plant drawing me back.
Glad I went to the ocean side La Trattoria. Tiffany bartending.
Tiffany a friend from days gone by. Had not seen her in at least 5 years. When we first met, she was the bartender at Antonia’s. Left. Then returned as a waitress.
I last saw Tiffany at Antonia’s. We were happy to see each other last night.
Tiffany has a winning personality. She updated me on her personal life and other things. Now married. Has gone from 2 dogs to 3. Works La Trattoria on Duval. Duval La Trattoria closed till November 7. Kitchen being remodeled. She was filling in at the ocean side La Trattoria last night.
Tiffany bartending at La Trattoria Duval. Erin gone about 3 years.
I enjoyed the egg plant and Tiffany.
My yesterday began with the anti-gravity treadmill. First thursday. I am now up to 4 times a week. Working towards 5.
Three consecutive days a bit tiring. I will become accustomed.
Did my 10 minute bit on the KONK News Hour yesterday. 104.9 radio. Guy deBoer interviewing me re my KONK Life column this week concerning Pope Francis.
I learned yesterday that Conch Color has published its last issue this week. Described as a hiatus. So there is hope for its return.
Conch Life was Tom Oosterhoudt’s brain child. A paper full of photos of Key West events and people. Highly successful. Illness the reason for the temporary close down.
Tom has a bad back. Very bad. I have never met anyone with the problems he has had with his back. His mother Mary Ann Worth is getting on in years. Neither available to work the paper at this time.
Tom, get better quickly and back to of one Key West’s prizes, Conch Color.
Judge Peary Fowler has been a sitting judge for years. Quiet and unassuming. Rarely mentioned in the papers. Yesterday she became newsworthy big time!
She held a defendant in $13 million bail. Big! Unusual!
The defendant an alleged sex abuser. The victim a girl, 6-13 years old when the acts were purportedly committed.
One of the finest people I have been privileged to meet in Key West is Nancy Robinson. Nancy passed on recently. At 91.
Nancy can only be described as a class act. She was always out and about town till her recent illness. Loved by all.
Mother of 4, I only knew/know her daughter Martha. Martha a class act in her own right. She cared for her mother in the years before and at the time of her death. Care first class and without reservation. Sadly, few children assume the responsibility in today’s society.
No Syracuse football today. A bye week.
Enjoy your day!
