Key West is a tiny island. A speck in a large body of water. Probably why those who live in the ocean are important to us. Our neighbors.
Turtles are loved! There is the Turtle Hospital in the mid keys. Staffed by a large professional staff.
The staff significantly successful.
Bubbles is a sub-adult loggerhead turtle. She was found floating and unable to dive on March 15. Bubbles was brought to the Turtle Hospital. Her intestines impacted.
Bubbles has recovered. Time for her release from the hospital. Tomorrow she will be returned to her ocean home. She will be released on Sombrero Beach at 10 in the morning. Roughly 100 persons will be there to cheer Bubbles off.
Key West definitely into Pride Week. The town crowded last night. Traffic on the verge of being horrendous. Too many people on bicycles and mopeds. Accidents waiting to happen.
One of the aces of the Korean War was Capt. Manuel “Pete” Hernandez. 14.5 kills in 9 months. Hernandez was born in Key West April 19, 1925.
My KONK Life column this week appears in KONK E-Blast this morning. Corn Flakes…..Cure Masturbation. I kid you not. Corn flakes when first invented were to serve as an anti-masturbatory breakfast.
The column finishes on page 2 of E-Blast. A large picture of me tops it. The picture was taken five years ago in Greece. On the island of Amorgos. How relaxed I appear. I was!
I had a haircut appointment yesterday at noon with Lori. Forgot. Doing it a lot lately. I am rescheduled for later today.
Saw one of my doctors at 1.
Napped most of the afternoon.
The Chart Room first last night. John bartending. The new guy. A good personality. He will do well.
Then dinner at Hot Tin Roof. The charming Patty Flower took care of me.
The Democrats had a big day yesterday. Elizabeth Warren continues to impress me. She can take on Trump toe to toe.
I watched the new TV show The Girlfriend Experience sunday night. About a high end prostitute. Not sure if I like it. Moves too slow.
The show brought to mind how things have changed over the years. 50-70 years ago, the story line would not fly. The use of a swear word was enough to block release of a movie or keep a TV show off the air.
Television advertising the same way. Sanitary napkins and condoms advertised today. I remember condoms. It was 1949. I was 14 years old. Working at all kinds of jobs in a drug store. Sometimes, I worked behind the cigarette/cigar counter. That is where the condoms were sold. From under the counter, of course. Sanitary napkins were behind the women’s counter. Could be seen. Had to be requested, however.
A report from the Institute for Economics and Peace has just come out. Claims only 10 nations not at war at the present time. I question the number.
The study also listed the most peaceful nations in the world. Iceland was #1. The united states, 103. Sounds correct. Nothing to be proud of.
Religion has killed many innocents. The Salem witch hunt, for example. On this day in 1692, the first “witch” was hung. After a trial, of course. Her name Bridget Bishop. Her real crime was her morality. She was of dubious moral character. Slept around, had three husbands.
Salem an example of a society gone crazy.
Enjoy your day!
