Grandson Robert was 12 years old yesterday. God bless!
The celebration might not have been. Robert was born with cancer of the liver. The tumor was larger than his liver. He had two major operations in the first eight days of his life.
God was good!
Lisa cooked a Happy Birthday sunday dinner and a birthday cake. The meal outstanding! As to the cake, very little left. Robert had a sleep over the night before. The guys pretty much devoured the cake.
Ally’s birthday is in two weeks. Yesterday, she looked beat up. Had a bad stomach bug the day before.
Summer vacation around the corner. We talked about what they will be doing. One thing will be Seacamp on Big Pine. An educational sea camp. The kids are excited.
Spent yesterday writing this week’s KONK Life column. Heroin Will Survive New Drug Bill. It is a followup to my article three weeks ago Afghanistan and America’s Heroin Addiction.
The new column hits the stands wednesday.
The first heroin column appears on E-Blast this morning.
My picture on E-blast took me back for a moment. I have not seen it in years. It was taken during my first Greece trip five years ago. I am sitting at a table at my favorite restaurant writing my blog. The bearded Louis.
Stone crab season ended yesterday. A good season. Stone crabs galore. I enjoyed every one I ate. To me, the best of foods. I always say if I knew my meal was to be my last one, I would order stone crabs.
Movie star Roy Scheider had a home in Key West. Scheider of Jaws and French Connection fame. Puchased 630 Dey Street in March 1982. His winter home.
Everyone does everything in Key West. Scheider was a regular at Camille’s when it was on Duval. He was frequently seen at the breakfast bar chain smoking.
Fausto’s is celebrating its 90th birthday. Its main store today on Fleming, just off Duval. A family business. Quality foods. Surprising however that it has lasted so long. Means whatever they sell has to be good.
I am anti-Trump. No question. I may even be anti-Clinton. I may not even vote.
That being said, the New York Times on saturday did a number on Trump. An unfair one. Front page. The article’s thrust was how Trump behaved with women.
The article should never have been written. It lacked substance. All it proved is Trump can occasionally be an asshole with his mouth.
Trump deserves an apology.
Enjoy your day!
