Anna caused a major terrorism scare today. All by herself.
Anna lives in Novara. She was on her way to the Milan Airport (the bigger of the two) by cab. On her way to Greece. A major accident occurred. Anna’s cab was in the middle of it. Escaped however with some skidding and no damage.
Scarred her. Anna is easily frightened. Sounds justifiable in this situation, however.
She made it to the airport with a few minutes to flight time. She sat and to compose herself. She had her suitcase with her. When she boarded the plane to Athens, she forgot to take her bag.
Anna and her plane are in flight. I can picture Ana recalling she left her bag back at the airport. The crew became involved. Anna already involved. The Milan Airport security and police got involved. I don’t know who else.
Everyone suspected Anna’s bag contained a bomb. Her bag and the area where it sat was cordoned off. The bomb squad called.
A major furor. Properly so. Anna questioned upon arriving at Athens. I can picture her. A wreck! Speed talking and crying. I am not a terrorist!
A wonderful woman! Sensitive! Her one negative, she is easily excitable. A trait common among Italian women. .
Anna’s trip to the Greek Isles will be delayed by one day. She is too tired to move on from Athens. An evening in Playka and she will be fine.
I envy Anna. She is off to Santorini, Armogos, Lesbos and I do not know where else for six weeks.
I am sitting in Starbucks. Late tuesday afternoon. Wiped out. Moved today. In spite of having professional movers, I had to direct where everything went. Too much stuff. It is going to be hard/impossible to fit 3,300 square feet of furniture into 1,600 square feet.
Don’t know when Comcast is going to come. Still waiting for a call. No wi-fi, internet or land line service. I will not be able to do my podcast tonight. Need my own land line to do it.
This blog you will read tomorrow. When I finish, I will set it up to publish at 5 in the morning.
My mover was Henrik Olsson. Owns Tropical Movers. He and three of his men provided yeomen service. Bulls! Oh, to be young again!
Guaranteed I am going to have a couple of drinks tonight.
Last night was Dueling Bartenders at Aqua. Bob Nesbitt the featured guest. The best male vocalist in Key West.
Good company. Cindy and Jim. longest I have never chatted with Cindy. An interesting conversation. She an Evangelical Republican. I, a Democrat. Intelligent and calm from both perspectives.
A young couple on the other side of me. Kia and Meagan. Visiting. Staying in Marathon. Drove down for the day.
Kia a software programmer. Meagan, I apologize. I cannot read my handwriting as to your occupation. It happens.
The Republicans are doing well! Spent the last seven years telling us how they were going to repeal and replace Obamacare when they regained power. What a joke!
Food for thought: If the Republicans are not able to negotiate with each other, how can they negotiate with the Democrats.
The Republican healthcare proposal is a humane one. Sacrifice 22 million lives of ordinary citizens to give the wealthy a huge tax break.
Ain’t no other way to cut it!
Honesty always the best policy. Teenager Emily Walsh and her mother saw a bag in a cart in a hallway at Las Brisa. Emily opened the bag. $30,000 in bundles of cash together with some deposit slips and receipts.
A cell phone company owner’s money. Obviously forgotten/mislaid.
Emily and her mother took the bag of cash to the Police Station.
Bless them. That’s what should be done.
I hope the cell phone company owner has the good sense to reward Emily and her mother. At least $1,000.
I’ve had it. I am off to a shower at my new abode. Then a search for some clean clothes. And out for the evening!
Enjoy your day!
