Last night lovely! Jenna and I enjoyed dinner together. At Azur. We celebrated my birthday. I was Jenna’s guest.
Jenna and I have been friends eight years. When she first came to Key West. Green. Wet behind the ears. No more. An experienced woman in her field. Television, advertising, modeling. She is at her best when hosting and interviewing on a TV show.
Beautiful! A knockout!
We enjoy each other’s company though 51 years separate us.
Jenna is razor then. Runs 5-7 miles a day. A cheap date. She eats nothing. Orders an appetizer. Finishes only half. Takes the other half home. Her body slim.
She has taken up racing. Recently won her first race. A 5K.
Walked yesterday. Working at good health! Read and napped during the afternoon.
Hemingway Days around the corner. July 22-26.
One of the events scheduled is a poetry reading. Sponsored by the Key West Poetry Guild. Hemingway wrote poetry in his early days. His poems will be read. Blue Heaven. Tuesday July 22 at 5.
Hemingway was familiar with Blue Heaven. A regular of sorts. He refereed local boxing matches there.
No question, I am hooked on William Hackley. His 1855 diary being run on a daily basis by the Key West Citizen.
He and his wife Kate have a new born. Kate not making enough milk. William brought in a goat from Havana. The goat not doing the job. The baby is literally starving.
Kate tried breast fed twice during the night. Not enough. The baby is in trouble.
The British Open got to me right away. The first day Scottish time was 1:30 in the morning our time thursday. I watched the whole thing. Got about two hours sleep.
I did not watch last night. Slept.
Phil Mickelson doing well. Time is passing him by. He is 46. I would like to see him win this big one.
Three years ago, I wrote a KONK Life column on the medical care jailed inmates receive. The best! Better than you and I. And we pay for it. They do not.
The issue of special food has once again arisen. Certain Jewish inmates want kosher foods. Muslims and Seventh Day Adventists whatever their religions permit.
Special dishes cost extra money. Florida, $12.3 million a year. Florida wanted to say no more. everyone eats the same. An intermediate federal court said this week that jails must provide special meals for inmates who claim the same on religious grounds. The court also went on to say that the argument it costs too much money does not fly. Find it! Such was the court order to Florida.
Special religious meals are provided in 35 state jails and throughout the entire federal system.
This week’s KONK Life column The New Prostitution was linked to my Key West Lou website this morning. It also appeared on E-Blast.
What happened in Nice horrible! Eighty plus lives. A terrorist attack by one man.
I fear the attack may decide our Presidential election. Trump claims he is going to protect us. Shouts it loudly and clearly.
Enjoy your day!
