THE AFRICAN QUEEN VISITED

Unusual weather.

I wrote yesterday morning that the rain and wind were big time. Two hours later, the clouds were drifting away and the sun was shining brightly. Two hours after that, the monsoons hit!

It poured extremely heavy yesterday afternoon. Key West and south Florida were under a 24 hour flood alert.

This morning, I do not know. Sun not yet completely up. Gray clouds. Minimum breeze.

I was at Montessori when the stoprm hit. Robert and Ally were in a fashion show. The one requirement was that their attire had to be made entirely from recycled items.

The show got moved inside because of the weather. Children and adults were gathered into a 200 x 10 foot hallway. Walls completely lined with spectators. No air conditioning. Sweat glands got a work out.

The kids walked the 200 foot length of the hallway and back. To the roaring cheers of everyone.

Ally is an actress. I suspect actually a model. She went down with one hand on her hip and a smile on her face. Walked tall and proud. Robert was a knight and conducted himself as such as he transversed the runway.

Remember the movie African Queen? 1951. Starred Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Bogart received an Academy award for his performance. The African Queen is the name of the boat in the film.

The African Queen was recently reacquired and rehabilitated. Its home port is Key Largo. The vessel is being utilized for dinner and regular cruises in the upper Keys.

Recently, the African Queen did a public relations trip through the Keys all the way down to Key West. It visited Key West Harbor.

The boat is nothing dramatic. It is one of those put put things. However, it has historical and memorabilia value. I wish I had seen it. I recall seeing the movie back when. I was in high school.

I hope the band plays and the drums roar this morning. I have a dentist visit. Supposedly the one where the implants will be finalized. If so, I will be able to chew!

I announce again that I will be on You Tube starting some time next week. Key West Lou. It will be a commentary type show. One item a day, seven days a week. 2-3 minutes of informative material shared with you. The show will be available 24 hours a day.

I am excited.

Enjoy your day!
