I am close to the end of the healing process. I think I have recovered. No more pain. However, I have to continue antibiotics through friday.
Today, I shave. Did not get around to it yesterday. I have decided no beard. Another time, perhaps. I want to see my face clean.
I plan on going out today. A walk. Hopefully out tonight, also. No drinking yet. Just to see people and talk. I am a social person.
I have been deluged with e mails and telephone calls concerning my health, wishing me well, etc. The number overwhelming. Humbling. From as far away as Thailand, Italy and South Africa. All over the U.S. And of course, Key West.
We speak of Key West as being One Family. The world can be One Family.
Recall the gang that could not shot straight. We have two such groups in the Keys. The Monroe County Commission and the Key West City Commission. They know not what they do.
The County Commission gave in by vote the extra money Waste Management was seeking. An amount in excess of the contract price.
I sometimes think our elected officials forget they are not spending their own money. They are taxpayer dollars!
Key West loves Harry Truman. Harry Truman loved Key West.
I came across a comment yesterday that “…..the greatest disappointment of his Presidency was his failure to pass comprehensive health reform.” He should not have been disappointed. He achieved in so many other areas. Like the decision to drop the atomic bomb, the Marshall Plan, and his decision re Korea.
I consider Truman to have been one of our greatest Presidents. No President gets the whole job done.
A most interesting blog talk radio show last night. Two issues appear to have garnered the most interest.
The first, Saudi Arabia and its want ad advertisement for swordsmen/beheaders. They need to hire eight more. The job was listed under the Religious Jobs section.
The other about prostitution being legal in Germany. It has made Berlin the sex capital of the world. Germany taxes the ladies of the night. Taking in a ton of money. Always on the look out for another tax gimmick, Germany now has made bestiality in brothels legal.
Anything for a dollar! Morality and image meaning nothing.
Enjoy your day!
