SAILORS IN PORT HELP NON PROFITS

Yesterday was a pleasant Sunday. Nothing unusual. Quiet. As it should be.

Lisa and Corey came over late morning with the grandkids to swim. Robert and Ally are rapidly becoming more proficient. Fish is their middle name. They are in an advanced swim class at the present time two days a week. The classes are held at the local community college.

Hung around the house in the afternoon. Watched pro football and golf. Both exciting yesterday.

I desired a prime rib. The Atkins Diet. Went to Outback for it. Told the waitress bring me only the prime rib and au jus. Nothing else. Devoured the large cut. Perfect!

Ran into Keith and Jen at Outback. They had just returned from a weekend at the Casino in the Fort Lauderdale area. It was Keith’s 35th birthday.

They both expressed disappointment with the Casino. Not what they expected. Few gaming tables. Many slot machines.

After dinner, I walked over to Publix. I run out of food rapidly on the diet. And I buy only for the diet!

Watched the Emmys later from the comfort of my bed. I was disappointed. A relatively poor show. Staid. Boring. The lines appeared to be prepared. Perhaps they should be. However, it should not be obvious.

An interesting editorial in the Sunday edition of The Key West Citizen. About the Navy’s history with Key West. Goes way back and run deeps.

The editorial spelled out some non naval activities the war ships participated in while docked at Key West.

There were 14 war vessels from various nations in Key West for several days last week. Preparatory to a multi nation training exercise in the Caribbean.

Sailors from the ships volunteered many hours of service to Key West charities. The local non profits benefited from their painting, power cleaning, and other work activities.

Warriors. Young ones. Ready to help in more than one way.

Enjoy your day!
