There is a new crocodile on the Key West Golf Course. Nature is reclaiming its turf.
I first became aware by reason of a comment in Citizens’ Voice this morning. Claimed a 7 footer was in the lake by the 12th hole.
Not a lake. A pond. There is a long wide one that runs between the 12th and 18th holes.
I just telephoned Don to verify the existence of the crocodile. Don plays twice a week.
There is a crocodile. He’s seen it. It’s a big one, he says. Eight feet. Big head.
Beware! Golfers stay away from the water or bushes that run along side here and there. If you hit a ball into the shallow water or bushes, kiss it good bye. Better the ball than your arm!
There will be several Memorial Day ceremonies today and tomorrow. The first already occurred at 9 this morning. I am writing this blog at 9:30.
The Cemetery one is at the Battleship Maine Memorial. Always touching. I have done it twice over the years.
There will also be a ceremony or two at Bayview Park. I drive by and if I see a crowd, stop. More emotional than the Cemetery one. Even though all ceremonies this day are to honor those who fought in all wars. It may be because the Bayview ceremonies remember those who fought in more recent wars, as well as other ones.
Visited Lisa and family yesterday for a while. Robert and Ally taller each time I see them.
Robert and Ally both have birthdays this time of the year. I was to take them to lunch today as part of the celebration. Lisa just telephoned and said today would be no good. Robert did a sleep over last night and is beat.
A quiet dinner alone at the bar at Roostica last night. Crowded. It’s the holiday weekend. Enjoyed the newspapers.
The multi-talented Bria Ansara is an art teacher at Montessori. Robert and Ally studied under her this year.
Bria put the kids to work. Had them spend the term painting a 420 square foot 6 panel mural. Bria had each student select a local flora/fauna. Then paint it on the mural.
The mural is done. It was exhibited to the public yesterday for the first time. It hangs at the school and is available for viewing by appointment. Call Montessori principal Lyn Barras to schedule.
This war room thing is stupid. Dangerous for White House persons under investigation.
Defense in a case that is being investigated/prepared by Special Counsel Mueller and two Congressional Committees is not a team effort. It is every person for himself. In court house vernacular, every rat for himself.
If under investigation, your only counsel and confident is your attorney. You live or die by him.
In investigations of this nature, it is generally a race to offer evidence in return for immunity or a shorter sentence. Flynn is no fool in this regard.
If there is to be a war room, an attorney should head it. It might give availability to the attorney-client privilege were its members subpoenaed later on to testify as to what went on in the war room.
There is no thing as a war room in legal jargon or understanding. Another example of Trump doing something stupid on his own.
Enjoy your day!
