The great English actress and Academy Award winner Helen Mirren filming parts of a movie in Key West. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The movie involves a retired couple taking a trip on their RV. Donald Sunderland plays Mirren’s husband.
The Key West Citizen ran a photo of Mirren being driven in an electric cart in this morning’s paper..
Mirren filmed in front of Salute’s yesterday. Today, she will be shooting at the Hemingway House. Tomorrow, I do not know.
My podcast last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. I enjoy doing the show. I assume people enjoy listening. I base the last sentence on the numbers and fact that I now have a few national advertisers. Like Geico and Walgreens.
I decided not to discuss politics. We are getting bombarded. I a political junkie am getting tired of listening. The worse Presidential campaign I have experienced. A lot of gutter snipping. Little policy discussion.
Ergo, I did not get into politics at all. Explained to the audience at the beginning I would not be and why.
Wells Fargo was the biggest item in my judgment. Especially with the news that the high echelon person responsible for the unit doing the bad deeds had retired in July. Her walk away payout $124.6 million. My point, crime pays.
A 4th case of Zika has been discovered in Monroe County. In Big Pine. Travel related.
Babe is now 3 months old. Daddy Hackley says she is “quite well.” Weighs 14 pounds.
Last year I fell many times. In one series, five times in seven days. All while going up or down stairs. I was sent to physiotherapy. Spent three months learning not only how to climb stairs, but also walk.
The key is to pay attention. Look where you are walking. Remember to lift your feet. Take your time.
It works. As simple as the instructions sound, I have only fallen once since. The reason I did fall was that I was not looking, not picking up my feet, and moving fast.
Falls Prevention Awareness Day is September 22. A notice re the Day set forth facts with which I was not aware. The numbers apply to persons over 65. In 2014, 2,400 persons were fatally injured from falls. Fifty thousand hospitalized for non-fatal injuries.
Syracuse/South Florida saturday. South Florida a two touchdown favorite. After the beating Syracuse took from Louisville friday, I fear what might happen.
Enjoy your day!
