Key West is enjoying Conch Republic Days. More festive than Fantasy fest. Cleaner in many respects, also.
Different strokes for different folks.
Tonight at 8 is the World’s Largest Parade. Part of Conch Republic activities. The parade runs from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Shore to shore. Along Duval. All of 1.25 miles. That is why it is called the Longest Parade.
If you are in town, join the parade. Then to Schooner Wharf to party.
Stopped first last night at Tavern ‘n Town. Picked up the newspapers, enjoyed a drink at the bar.
Then to Don’s Place. Everyone there. Don, Stephanie, John, Billy, Keith, Stan and Clare. Stan and Clare just returned from Washington, DC. Stan had business there.
Kevin, who I played bocce with a couple of weeks ago, stopped in. We had a great conversation. The Chart Room and GM mosquito problem.
Politics the big item of discussion with the others. No one seemed to like either Donald or Hillary. Interesting.
Stopped later at Duffy’s for dinner. I wanted to see Jennifer. She was hosting.
Anna leaves this week for a two month vacation to Poland. She will be visiting relatives. Jennifer stepped in to help me while Anna is away. Jennifer agreed to help again.
Ordered the prime rib. Good! Amazing! Might be the best in Key West. The cheapest, too.
Met Jana. She is the manager at Duffy’s. Been here ten years. Originally from Czechoslovakia.
Jana was all excited. She recently became a U.S. citizen.
I plan on taking it slow again today.
Enjoy your day!
