Yesterday busy. Day and night. All good things.
The best last night at the Chart Room.
I was looking for some one. Thought I would run into the person at the Chart Room. Stopped in. Looked around quickly. Not there.
Twenty feet later, I heard a voice. Lou. turned around and there stood an absolutely beautiful woman.
The words came tumbling out….. I’m Jordan. I’m with Robb. We met two years ago. We took pictures. Two hang in the Chart Room. Robb reads your blog every day. We are here tonight to see you.
How could I leave.
We went back into the Chart Room. Met Robb.
I was honest. I meet so many people. I did not recall them.
Jordan took me to a section of the chart Room and showed me their picture with me. On a ceiling beam. The other behind the bar was buried. We did not bother searching for it.
Great people! I stayed a while. Enjoyed a drink with them.
From Jacksonville. Robb, 36. Jordan, 29.
School teachers. Jordan an elementary phys ed teacher. Also coaches high school lacrosse. Robb teaches high school math and helps coach the football team.
We chatted about a multitude of items. I was impressed Robb was a math teacher. Told him I became a lawyer instead of a doctor because I could not handle math and science.
Enjoyed my time with Jordan and Robb. Definitely will remember them next time.
Terri White sang while cleaning up the outside area of my new home. Her idea. A home warming gift, she said. She loves working with shrubbery, flowers, etc.
We took time off for lunch. Picked up Donna and headed for Hogfish.
Sounds like I was working with Terri. No. I avoid servile labor of any nature.
After a cheery lunch, Terri and I returned to the house. Terri had to finish the clean up.
Terri does more than sing. Besides being a talented landscaper, she knows how to fix everything.
A new desk chair arrived a couple of days ago. Still sitting in the middle of the living room. Box unopened. Terri returns today to put the chair together.
I also have a new shower head. She is going to install it in my shower.
A good friend. As is Donna.
Along the way, I did my Facebook live video. Key West Lou Live Video. Trump, the White House staff and campaign help get free legal with regard to present problems. Money comes from donations to the Committee to Re-Elect funds.
Articles claim $6 million incurred so far. $1.5 million paid out. Including Donald Trump, Jr.’s $50,000 legal fee for the meeting.
Began my evening at Aqua and Dueling Bartenders. Tom Luna and Rick Dery. Heather guest vocalist. The best show in town! All for the cost of a few drinks.
It was a locals crowd. Mark Watson, Joseph Lyles, Matias, Jean Thornton, her sister Laura Hauk, Sheila, Mary, Larry Blackburn, and Jimmy Olson.
Liz came in. I have not seen her in a while. I assumed she had returned to her St. Petersburg home. Went over to greet her. Discovered she was in the Key West hospital for 5 weeks. Why, I do not know. It was difficult to hear with the noise. Told her I would call today.
I feel guilty I did not know.
Then to the Chart Room. Followed by Tavern ‘n Town for their late evening happy hour. Read the newspapers and enjoyed small pieces of beef in a tasty brown sauce over some sort of potato. Delicious.
Met Jack and Terri at the bar. From Pensacola. Joe Scarborough country. They know Joe.
Jack and Terri get to Key West every 2-3 years. Their four children grown.
Jack has been with UPS 31 years. A supervisor. Terri teaches sixth grade.
Good people. Good conversation.
Key West had a bank robbery a day or two ago. A 45 year old man walked into the Simonton bank building and left with some money. Details not reported as to how much, how robbery accomplished, etc.
The significant thing is the Key West police captured the bad guy in 20 minutes. The surveillance camera showed him clearly. They picked him up on Duval.
Prior to his arrest, he made some purchases on Duval and gave $50 bills as a tip. Not too bright.
“Sex is like money, only too much is enough.” John Updike.
Updike spent several years living in Key West. Wrote several novels using Key West as location.
Literary experts claim Updike was greatly influenced by Hemingway.
