Normalcy has returned!
First stop yesterday morning was Verizon. The old one in the Winn Dixie Shopping Center. Good people. I know. I have done business with both Verizons in Key West. The other a rip off. Not caring with help once you have bought.
Then to Publix. Out of food again.
I sense a silent raise in prices again. Everything costs $5 or $10. Bill runs up at that rate.
The lead up last week to this week’s Republication Convention was primarily re anticipated protestors/demonstrators. Police officers from all over the country came in to deal with the protestors. Five thousand officers.
How much have you heard since the Convention began monday? Next to nothing. Perhaps nothing. Seems as if the media has blocked out any news re the protestors.
Wrong! Protests part of the news. Especially the past two years. What is happening is selective reporting. The American people being denied the right to know.
I dug into the internet this morning. The protestors are in Cleveland. In large numbers. A few altercations. Nothing of consequence. Some arrested. Two police sustained minor injuries. Urine thrown around.
Some one videoed the street scene. I watched a portion of the video this morning. A street fair. Demonstrators walking around. Booths selling all kinds of things. Delegates walking through the crowds.
Cleveland’s Chief of Police says everything going well, under control. He is correct. By not giving the protestors a national/international stage, Cleveland has discouraged them from demonstrating their causes.
The peace and quiet could end today. If not, such will only cause the protestors to find another venue in the near future to express their positions.
Being stripped of land line telephone, internet and TV tuesday night, I was unable to do my blog talk radio show. Being a political junkie, I wanted to see the Republican Convention. Drove downtown. Stopped at several places. None showing the Convention. All watching baseball games.
I could not win.
Monday night I was at Aqua for the Dueling Bartenders. Tom Luna and Beatrice singing. Magnificent!
Josey at the bar. A terrific new friend recently made. We chatted two hours.
Josey taking a three week trip in September. To her home country Macedonia. A couple of neighboring countries. Then, one whole week in Greece.
I envy her!
The subject matter of next week’s KONK Life column decided. Bagels! Will not be boring! Guaranteed!
Last week’s column was The New Prostitution. Has caused talk. Primarily among women. Those in the 40-60 year old bracket.
No matter how the subject matter is portrayed, to each it was nothing less than prostitution. Nothing justified the prostitution in their opinions. I countered to each the fact that the ladies would graduate debt free, have no long term college loans to pay, etc. Made no difference. Sin is sin. Wrong, wrong. No justification for prostitution.
Interesting. I wish some younger ladies had approached me with their thoughts.
Each woman who sought me out to talk were mothers.
My birthday was July 6. Still being celebrated. Donna and Terri are taking me to lunch at Hogfish today for my birthday.
Enjoy your day!
