Friday morning! Ten o’clock my time. The key West Lou Legal Hour. Comcast Channel 87 and U-Verse Channel 19. Via the internet world wide at www.tvchannel19.com.
Join me. A good show.
I believe in starting Christmas shopping early. Today I begin! Still 4 shopping days before Christmas.
My yesterday began with a two hour business meeting at 11. Then spent the afternoon reading the Ulysses Grant book. Dinner with friends in the evening at Hogfish. Three diet Pepsi’s for me.
I am hooked on the Grant book. Plodding. Interesting. Learned something new. Grant and his wife were supposed to be at the theater with the Lincolns the night Lincoln was shot. Grant was the most popular man in the Nation at the time. More popular perhaps than Lincoln.
Mrs. Grant and Mrs. lincoln were not the best of friends. Mrs. Grant did not want to go. Instead she wished to leave Washington for home. Grant said no. We have to be with the President. Mrs. grant insisted. The General gave in. They left.
It is conceivable Grant might have been shot the same time as Lincoln.
I hope to see the Lincoln movie this evening.
There is a Christian hymn that occasionally runs through my mind. Onward Christian soldiers, marching through the storm, etc. My diet brings the song to mind. It is onward every day for me. I am up to 17 pounds. In 27 days. Not bad!
Anna takes care of my home. For eight years now. She cleans and does the clothes. Anna is from Poland.
This morning she brought my Christmas gift. Polish candies. Chocolates and the like. We both laughed. She knew I am on a diet. The sweets are sitting in the refrigerator waiting till the diet is over.
I know. My media participation is growing. There is now a blog talk radio show. Tuesday mornings at 7. If you are up that early, join me for a half hour of fun and interesting talk. www.blogtalkradio.com/key-west-lou.
Christmas shopping ahead! Key West style! Sears, K-Mart and Office Max.
Enjoy your day!
