No question, Key West has its share of characters. Generally locals.
The description character not meant to be disparaging. It merely reflects the unique nature of Key West society.
Don’s Place is a venue where the conversation merits recognition. Perceptive, interesting, amusing, etc.
Ten years ago, I told don we should put together a show. One originating from Don’s Place. I suggested a corner of the outside bar. Light it up. Place several customers at the corner. Have them talk for two hours. Nothing special. whatever they chat about normally. Film it all.
The two hour film would be edited to a half hour. Then we would try to get it aired on TV.
A guaranteed winner!
Don said no. I could not convince him.
Someone has finally decided to try it. Take advantage of the unique snappy dialogue that can be found among Key West locals.
The Dive Shop on Northern Boulevard is behind the move. The creators Tom Jackson, a 30 year Key West resident and Rich Vaughan, a former Key West resident now living in New York City.
The stars Key West stereotypes. Played by locals and New York actors. The title Lost Reef Adventures.
Shooting begins July 27.
Good luck, guys!
My day yesterday began with an early afternoon manicure with Tammy. Fortunate I had an appointment. Standing room only Saturday afternoons for nails.
Then to Urgent Care to have my back x-rayed. I still have pain in the ball on my left foot. Beginning to bother my left calf because I favor my left foot. The pain is less every day, however.
Diana Millikan back in town!
We had dinner together last night at the Waterfront Brewery.
Diana has leased a small condo on Northern Boulevard for a year. She will be playing a snowbird. Back and forth. Present trip till late this month.
Good conversation. Diana is a devoted Trump supporter. One of the blind. She refuses to see. The man is crazy.
Why England three times with the terrorists in three months? Strange. Whatever, I hope the terrorists remain on the European side of the Atlantic.
The pending English elections might be the reason. Next thursday. Could it be the terrorists are trying to show that Theresa May is not doing a good job in protecting the English people?
If so, they have failed. She and her team have come up a winner each time following an attack.
The 19th Amendment was passed this day around 1918. Gave women the right to vote.
I am a student of history. I find it amazing that men have always tried to keep women down. Treat them as second class citizens.
Women have had to fight every step of the way. They still are fighting men who oppose their right to control their own bodies.
The wives of such political leaders should deny their husbands marital rights for a period each time they do some asinine anti-female thing.
George Washington was not always a winner.
Young George was 22 and a Lieutenant Colonel in 1754. Helped build Fort Necessity in the Ohio Valley. A shack more than a fort.
The concern was for the French Canadians coming down and trying to take over what was then a British Ohio Valley.
Washington was unable to defend the makeshift Fort Necessity. He surrendered to the French and their Indian friends.
The defeat blossomed into the Seven Years War which began two years later.
Enjoy your Sunday!
