Too much heart ache lately. Harvey, Irma, Maria, Puerto Rico, and Las Vegas. Time for a change of pace. Something light. A bit of love.
Some enchanted evening…..Opening words to Some Enchanted Evening. Uplifting.
Heard the song sung for the first time in years monday at Dueling Bartenders. Tom Luna singing as only he can.
Some Enchanted Evening opened on Broadway in 1949. An immediate hit. Starred Enzio Pinza and Mary Martin. Pinza sang Some Enchanted Evening.
The movie was not produced till nine years later. Pinza dead by that time. Rossano Brazzi starred in the movie version.
Rogers and Hammerstein wrote the music and lyrics.
I was in my first year of high school when the musical opened on Broadway. My second year of law school when the movie came out. Danced lovingly to some Enchanted Evening during the time frame and since. Unfortunately, rarely these days.
My podcast last night. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Primary topics Key West post Irma and Puerto Rico. Lambasted Trump re his Puerto Rico visit earlier in the day. He deserved it.
Blog Talk Radio produces the podcast. They offer it to advertisers with the representation: “Always an interesting perspective on everyday issues.” I try.
Stopped for a drink at Don’s Place late monday afternoon. Missy bartending. Enjoyed our conversation. She stayed for Irma. Her home small, but between 2 large concrete buildings. Her home equipped with all kind of helpful items. Like a generator that can run forever. She had stored fuel in anticipation. Ergo, her refrigerator and air conditioning worked.
Irma a tough time for her!
Stopped at Walgreens yesterday. Picked up 5 prescriptions. All generic. $194. Something wrong! Expensive! My acid reflux pill the killer.
Ran into David scootering out of The Gardens. His mobile home destroyed by Irma. FEMA putting him up for a time. List of FEMA provided hotels/motels included The Gardens.
David had never heard of The Gardens. The finest and most expensive hotel in Key West. Kate Miano’s wonder!
I told David to stay at The Gardens, if he could. I had to convince him.
Yesterday, he told me the place was terrific! He was in a cottage, had a suite, etc.
I have been trying to reach Dr. Langley’s office. I am changing primary care physicians. I had been telephoning to ask that my records be e-mailed to the new doctor. Phone never working.
Receptionist told me everything was still down with them. Wi-fi and telephone. Could not e-mail. She would print out my records and I will pick them up today.
Comcast’s record generally leaves much to be desired. Someone recently told me of an obituary they read where an elderly woman had passed away. The obituary reflected that her life was a happy one, except for three things. One of the three was Comcast!
Key West’s Irma recovery a day at the time. A little better each day. We will return in full force by Fantasy Fest.
I knock the Key West City Commission frequently. Incompetents at governing. They finally did something correctly, however.
It was announced that because of damages and repair costs due to Irma, the 3-5 percent real property tax increase contemplated was being rolled back. Means no tax increase for the upcoming year.
Governor Rick Scott has become my favorite political person due to his handling of Irma. He continues to be concerned and active.
Governor Scott will be in Key West tomorrow morning. The Marriott Beachside at 10:30. He is giving an Irma update. Open to the public.
Trump’s Puerto Rico visit yesterday a disgrace. I won’t bother you with the details. They are being reported all over TV and the internet.
Bottom line remains the same…..Trump is lacking sympathy and only cares about his image which he generally projects erroneously.
I am thrilled!
Parking in Key West a pain! Especially for those living outside its boundary lines. City issued parking permits are available to residents only.
I recently moved. My former residence was 2.5 miles outside Key West. Key West parking was not easy. My new residence is located on the Golf Course.
Turns out a portion of the Golf Course is a part of Key West. I live in that area!
I received a new card telling me I was henceforth to vote in Key West. Aroused my curiosity as to parking. Checked it out. Yes, I am entitled to a parking permit. Whoopee! Whoopee tells you how difficult it is to park in Key West.
Enjoy your day!
