The weather is frightful. Key West experiencing its first cold spell of the season. Sixty degrees last night. Sixty one degrees at the moment. Today projected a high of 65 and low of 59.
I feel sad for the tourists who are here this week. The cold spell will run through thursday. They ae making the best of it. Buying Key West sweat shirts and hanging out at the bars day and night. Still fun!
When I went out last night, my mind was buzzing with Frank Sinatra’s rendition of Let It Snow. The specific line…..The weather outside is frightful.
We who live here have thin blood. The heat does it. Anything under 74 cold! I appreciate it sounds strange. That is the way it is, however.
I turned on the heat 2:30 this morning. First time in the new house.
The fire alarm went off. For 15 minutes. I did not smell smoke so was not concerned. Small particles of soot came flying out the vents.
Turned heat off. Grabbed an extra blanket. Never got back to sleep. Not caused by the noise, cold, etc. Merely woke and could not get back to sleep.
Made me wish I had a body to sleep next to. Body heat works.
Someone due here in an hour to check the system out.
My only stop last night the Chart Room. Packed. The weather forcing everyone inside. Everyone having a good time. Noise level roaring.
Shaun bartending. Just Returned from a visit home in Minnesota. Minus 10 degrees. Real cold!!!
On the way out, met Jenn and Holly. Jenn stopped me to say she reads the blog. Makes my heart feel good every time I hear it. I believe Jenn lives in Key West and her friend Holly visiting.
Big party tonight! The Sons and Daughters of Italy Christmas party. At the Doubletree. Last year was my first Christmas party with them. One terrific time!
A few Trump observations.
Yesterday, Obama compared Trump’s actions to those of Hitler. Some commenting today on TV were offended. Open your eyes! The man is! He is authoritarian and totalitarian. Democracy rapidly declining. Troubled waters ahead.
Pakistan supposedly our ally. Friend. Till Trump. Keep in mind, Pakistan is a nuclear nation.
Pakistan announced yesterday that its Air Force had been ordered to shoot down U.S. drones. Pakistan claims the drones are violating Pakistan’s sovereignty.
Yes. The real reason however is that Afghanistan sits next door to Pakistan. U.S. air power flies over Pakistan to get to Afghanistan. When the bombs fall, some fall on the Pakistan side of the border. Killing Pakistanis.
In August, Trump publically spoke harshly of Pakistan.
Pakistan has reached a point many other nations have. The United States cannot be relied on.
UN Under-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman returned recently from North Korea. He opined re North Korea: The “world’s most dangerous security issue, and must be resolved fast and diplomatically to avoid war.”
Trump spoke yesterday in Mississippi. The bastion of black love. Trump paid tribute to the “brave men and women of the civil rights movement.”
What a whore!
Demonstrators nearby carrying signs. One read: “No Trump, no hate, no KKK in the USA.”
Keep up the good work, Mr. President!
Modern day pedophilia did not end with the Catholic Church. It keeps rearing its ugly head.
Recently, Alabama’s Moore.
More recently, the Director of Music Publishing for Walt Disney. John Heely. Sixty eight. He has been with Walt Disney since 1981.
Three minors. One for four years.
A religious man. His Twitter bio reads: “Disney concerts and living to glorify God in all things.”
Enjoy your Sunday!
