Didi is a turtle. She was found early in July floating. Incapable of diving.
Didi was taken to the Turtle Hospital in Marathon. Impacted internally.
The very competent staff at the Turtle Hospital fixed her up. Didi is recovered. Saturday (tomorrow) she will be released back into the ocean. Sombrero Beach at 10 in the morning.
If you have never attended such an event, go! There will be a couple of hundred people. Everyone cheering as Didi makes her way into the water. A good feeling event.
Erika. The odd feeling in the pit of my stomach getting larger. Erika still a tropical storm. Doing some damage and deaths in the Caribbean. It is expected to hit Key West monday morning. Erika expected to be a hurricane at that time.
The projections are always 99.9 percent wrong. It is that 1/10th of a point that is the problem. You never know.
Today, I begin getting ready. Buy peanut butter and crackers, bottled water, new flashlights, some candles, etc. Some today, some tomorrow.
No one is talking about the hurricane yet. No one is taking it seriously. Properly so. They rarely hit.
Yesterday another inactive day. Spent most of the day writing the “love story” that I continue to believe will never publish. Love writing a first time event for me. Not easy to do.
Bocce last night canceled. The courts still wet. Some with two inches of water.
Bocce is not a sport alone. It is a social event. I shower, shave and wear a clean pressed tee shirt for the event. I did it all in preparation last night and was on my way to the bocce courts. It was then that I got a text from David. Bocce cancelled.
Dressed and no where to go!
Stopped by Don’s Place assuming some team mates would be there. Enjoyed a drink with David, Stan and Clare.
Decided to stop at Tavern ‘n Town for dinner. Forgot that thursday night is 2 for 1 and half price on appetizers at cocktail time. The bar a zoo. Not for me. I left.
It was a sandwich and early to bed for me.
This week’s KONK Life column Legalization of Prostitution run on E-Blast this morning. Also linked to my website Key West Lou.
Part of the column is a rerun of a 2013 article I did titled Germany…..Biggest Whore House in Europe. Germany’s experience with legalization a disaster for the ladies.
Enjoy your day!
