Amazing how many championship sport games get to be the best ever. Last night was not different. Though I thought it was going to be.
I was partying at Giorgio and Sharon’s home. Patriots down big time at half. A new champ was in the making.
I was tired. Opted to leave at half time.
Home and into bed. Turned on the game. score S8-10. Maybe? I did not think so. However remained awake to see the rest of the game.
A game of games! Tom Brady one of the best quarterbacks ever. It was come back time big time!
The Patriots won 34-28 in overtime. The Patriots scored 31 unanswered points.
The Patriots had been there before. They knew what had to be done. They did it. True professionals.
Stock Island has another great food place.
The French Croissant has been on Duval for more than a quarter century. It still is. It does its baking off premises, however.
French Croissant recently moved its baking operation to Stock Island. The same building Roostica is in. On the side. Where the laundromat was.
I stopped in yesterday morning to buy some pastries to bring to the party in the evening. Beautiful pastries! Outstanding in appearance! Later found them to be exceptional in taste.
They have an outside fenced in dining area. Simple. I must stop by for a sandwich and try it.
My pastries went over well at the party.
Spent the afternoon working on tomorrow night’s podcast show. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Wanted to get a head start on the show this week.
I am enjoying Go Live with Key West Lou on Facebook. Fun! Join me. Only a few minutes each time. See as well as hear me. Many comments controversial. Depends where you sit on an issue.
Tough people in Key West. Whether local or tourist. Yesterday the proof. This morning’s Key West Citizen reports 200-300 people took the plunge in the Atlantic Ocean at noon. The event…..The Polar Bear Plunge. On Higgs Beach behind Salute’s.
The water temperature was 74 degrees. That’s cold! I had a pool up north. Only usable during summer months. Discovered 70 degree temp cold. Water had to be 80-82 degrees to be comfortable.
We all had pool heaters.
There is something called a Grab Your Wallet movement in the U.S. Purpose: To boycott stores that sell Trump merchandise.
Ivanka taking a beating. Nordstrom dropped her clothing line. Neiman Marcus in the process of dropping her jewelry line. Macy’s presently targeted to drop Ivanka products.
One thing that can be said for Trump is he has aroused the opposition. There is a group encouraging a national strike day to evidence its opposition to Trump. A day where no one works. The day being zeroed in on is February 17. The friday before President’s Day.
National strike days are common in Europe. Everything comes to a halt.
I recall one instance when I was in Livonia for a month with the family. Rome was 45 miles away. We took the train when we wanted to go to Rome.
The train station parking lot was always a problem. Packed.
This particular day the parking lot was empty. I could not understand. Parked the car and waited for the train. The train never came.
A woman saw us standing at the tracks. She explained. It was a national strike day to protest something. The trains were not running. No one was working.
That is how it would be here if we had a national strike day.
Enjoy your day!
