Simply stated…..Yesterday relatively quiet.
Laid around at home in the afternoon watching the PGA.
First stop in the evening was the Bottle Cap. A fundraiser for Sisters. I was there at the specific request of Donna and Terri.
Never heard of Sisters before. A big hearted and welcomed organization for those in need. Specifically, sick persons. Very sick.
Most Key Westers live paycheck to paycheck. No money set aside for emergencies. Now comes cancer. Can’t work. Can’t pay ordinary bills like the rent.
Sisters steps in. Pays certain everyday expenses such as rent for a brief period. A bridge for the afflicted and unable to work.
Terri was a beneficiary of such relief when she was first diagnosed.
Terri sang last night as part of the program. Somewhere Over The Rainbow. Touched everyone.
Mostly women in attendance. I noticed they were hugging and kissing at different times. More so than normal. I could understand why. Many had been stricken and survived. They were hugging some who helped them get through the early days economically.
Carmelo one of Bottle Cap’s owners. His birthday yesterday. I ran into him at the event. I was pleased to be able to shake Carmelo’s hand and wish him a Happy Birthday.
Then to dinner at Duffy’s with Donna and Terri. Terri all excited. In a few weeks she will be back in Tampa for further tests and word whether her body is prepared to receive some drastic life saving activities.
Today, Robert and Ally day. Sure I have it correct this time!
Lunch and then a visit to a new place. Key West Room Escape.
I look forward to my time with them.
Tonight, more fun! A party at Giorgio’s home. Giorgio President of the Sons and Daughters of Italy. Summertime. No meetings. Giorgio and Sharon having a social evening at their home for club members.
Buffalo’s Fran and Tom Dixon have joined. Fran is of Italian extraction. This will be their first meet with the group.
Trump said yesterday Venezuela should watch out. Indicated he was considering military intervention.
The guy is nut! He’d consider bombing Little Bo Peep!
Venezuela’s problem is four years old. A smoldering civil war in the making. However until the past two months, the people have failed to fight. They protested in numbers. no violence, however.
Now, they fight a bit. Not enough. Some killed. Not a significant number.
Two reasons we do not belong in Venezuela.
First, it is a civil war. None of our business. Second, if the people will not fight in sufficient numbers and force the overthrow of Maduro, why should the U.S. intervene? God helps those who help themselves first.
Enjoy your day!
