I frequently write or say…..Only in Key West! Last night it was only in the Chart Room!
Great people. All interesting.
During the course of the evening, Jessica appeared. I mentioned Jessica a few days ago. The lovely 40ish woman who came into the Chart Room.
I was in the process of leaving. Jessica mentioned to the bar her husband had returned home that day. She was staying a week to have fun. The intimation sex.
Fine. Strange. Her business only. Why share.
Jessica reappeared last night. Stood at the end of the bar and said, “I’m buying for the bar. Shots.”
She then proceeded to tell us she was in a hurry. Someone was coming to her room. No intimation this time. Sex!
A meretricious relationship awaited her. The term a throwback to my lawyering days.
With that, Jessica was off.
Her total time in the Chart Room all of two minutes. Time enough to buy for the bar and announce what was next on her agenda.
An efficient use of time. Hope she was not as time efficient when she returned to her room.
The others at the bar were not revealing with regard to later evening intentions.
Met some nice people. No misunderstanding. Jessica was nice, too.
Sitting next to me was Jeff Wear. Got a boat education. Jeff is involved in boat sales in West Palm Beach. Mariner Marine. Specialize in Grady-White boats. Better described as elegant outboard powerboats.
He and wife Michelle have a 37 foot Grady-White that they frequently power to Key West for a weekend. The boat last night was at the Galleon.
Jeff once was a Keys resident. Lived 5 years in Islamorada.
Interesting. Jeff and Michelle live in Stuart and work in West Palm. A fun area. Yet they find Key West more appealing for get away weekends. The flavor of Key West difficult to find elsewhere.
Mike and Amy were seated on the other side of me. From western Massachusetts. They have visited Key West many times. The first time for their honeymoon.
At the other end of the bar were Mark and Kim from Connecticut. Their fourth visit. Mark builds computer boards.
John enjoyed himself while bartending. It was a fun evening.
I had not eaten. Stopped at Tavern ‘n Town on the way home. The Tavern’s new 9-11 happy hour terrific. Since it is late, I eat less.
The cost can’t be beat. Fried calamari, bread and two drinks. $18. I feel ashamed every time I pay the bill after a late evening there.
Spent yesterday afternoon reworking Growing Up Italian. Some day, I will finish the book.
This Trump meeting of a year ago involving Donald Jr. gets stranger by the day. Seems hard for young Donald to tell the truth.
We were informed yesterday there was a fifth person in the room. A Russian-American lobbyist who once was a member of Russia’s military and counter-intelligence.
A few minutes ago on MSNBC, I heard announced that one of Jr.’s attorneys called in and said their was a sixth person in the room. Sounds like a joke telephone call. By the end of the day, we will know if the message was genuine.
I do not mean to insult Donald Trump, Jr. by referring to him as Jr. Fewer letters to type.
A day or two ago, his father referred to him as a good kid. Probably is. He is neither Jr. nor kid, however. He is 10 days younger than the French President.
Got to hurry. A haircut appointment.
Enjoy your day!
