I am leaving in about an hour.
No time for blog today. Nor will there be one tomorrow. I will still be on the road.
I cannot thank Jean and Joe enough for their kindness. Was it a musical line…..That’s what friends are for!
To the who wrote adverse comments about my stay here, what can I tell you. One of you even called me a leech.
Besides benefiting from the goodness of good hearted people, I look at it as payback. I have taken in persons in distress many times. Anywhere from 5 days to 6 months. Called do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
To another who criticized, I did more than dinner. That is me.
Then there were those who thought it improper for me to have left. I had a lot of company. Mayor Cates said the population of Key West is 25,000 and 20,000 had left. I had a lot of company.
Additionally if one could afford to leave, he/she would have been crazy to stay with a then category 5 on the way.
Then there is the burden factor. I am 82 with a bad heart. Cannot walk more than 50 feet without being seriously breathless. I have a balance problem. Fall frequently. There is the tightening in the chest if I exert myself.
This is my last reference to these issues. I am moving on. Hope you will also.
Enjoy your day!
