Gas Monkey a winner!
The place is a year old. My first time last night. In 200 block of Duval. Jam packed. Tourists. Saw only three locals.
Sandwiches, fries, etc. I enjoyed an absolutely delicious grilled cheese with fries.
A group playing half way back off the street. Outstanding. Everyone watching and moving to the beat of the band.
On top of which I got a 25 percent discount because I was local. In effect, I ate for nothing.
I shall return!
My evening began with a visit to heart Doctor Mc Ivor. The best! A routine visit. Nothing new to report. Thank God!
Then to the Chart Room. David and John. Good conversation. Always so.
I had my fill of Trump yesterday. He monopolizes the news. I decided to do my Go Live bits on Facebook free of Trump. I spoke about IUDs and Pebble Beach. Two interesting topics.
Trump was tiring me out. Today, I will return to him for one or two items.
Weather a bit windy today. Winds about 20 mph. Bending the palm trees. White caps. A small craft advisory has been issued. Temp will be in high 70s.
A pleasant day ahead. A manicure with Tammy at 1. Dinner tonight with Donna and Terri. Donna cooking. One of the best!
You can depend on Key West to come up with odd ball events.
First, a mass kissing event Valentine Day. Everyone at the same time. 5:30. In front of the Custom House. Beside the 25 foot sculpture titled Embracing Peace. A sailor and nurse kissing. Signifying the end of World War II.
The other event is a Domino Tournament. Valentine Day again. At the Southernmost House.
I didn’t think anyone played dominoes any more.
Pythons, iguanas…..What next? Tegu Lizards. We get them all!
Tegu lizards come from South America. They have been moving north. Some have reached areas of Florida. Others as pets abandoned in Florida.
Presently in the southern part of Miami-Dade County and along the southern margin of the Everglades.
Hides and meat supposedly excellent. Grow to four feet. The economy of some parts of Argentina depend on the Tegu Lizard for economic survival. A big seller for their hides and meat.
Another turtle rescued! Jolly. A 330 pound green seas turtle. Sixteen miles offshore. Several participated in the rescue. Jolly caught up in three trap lines. One of his rear flippers injured.
Latest report has Jolly resting at the Marathon Turtle Hospital preparatory to surgery to repair the flipper.
Trump lost in the appellate court. He wants to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. His case is a loser. Not because of the issue. Because of poor lawyering/preparation in drawing up the executive order.
The appellate decision spells out many of the order’s errors, mistakes. A smart lawyer concerned with efficiency and getting the job done would recommend to Trump that he rescind the order. Replace it with a new executive order drawn by legal professionals complying with the contents of the appellate decision.
No one wins when the discourse between parties to a lawsuit is as follows.
Trump: “See you in court…..The security of our Nation is at stake.”
Washington State Gov. Inslee: “Mr. President, we just saw you in court, and we beat you.”
Enjoy your day!
