I am up early. Still dark outside. Humidity heavy.

The sunset was different last night. There was a streak of black clouds. The sun behind them a bright red fireball. Striking. Lovely.

The reason I am up early is daughter Lisa and I have a breakfast date. 9:15. At Marriott’s Tavern ‘n Town.

Lisa departed Southernmost after six years as Sales Manager. She is now in business for herself. Been so for 2 months already.

She is the proprietor of The Social Suite. A marketing and consulting service. She is doing well. She is her father’s daughter. Already has acquired several hefty accounts.

One of her clients is Tavern ‘n Town.

Amongst her many talents, Lisa is an expert at social media interaction. She connects everything and everyone up via the internet. I am impressed with the talent.

Take a peek at Lisa’s two websites. http://www.thesocialsuite.com/ and her on line gift store http://www.viakeywest.com/.

I was really lazy yesterday. Never left the house. But…..my home is a good place to be lazy. It is made for it!

I lay in bed (one of my favorite places) in the morning watching the Sunday talk shows. I am a political junkie.

Then Lisa and the family showed up to swim. We spent a couple of hours by the pool. Lisa brought Cuban toast. Robert, Ally and I sat at the pool side table under the umbrella and ate them. My chewing capacity  has returned dramatically. It is 90 per cent there. I have not had Cuban toast in six months. It was sooooo good! Better even than that!

I spent the balance of the day reading the Sunday papers and watching a bit of TV. Then to an early bed.

I was impressed with Steve Stricker’s play on the last two holes of golf tournament. Birdie, birdie. Had to do it to win! Did it!

Besides breakfast with Lisa this morning, I have nothing scheduled till this evening. I will find things to do, however.

This evening I will be at Kate Miano’s Gardens. Kate is in love. So is her beau Ron. They are having a Pre-Committment Ceremony. I am invited.

I am a bit confused. Never have been to a pre-committment event before. Sounds like an engagement party. Maybe just an excuse for a party. Do I bring a gift? Whatever, I guarantee I and everyone else will have a terrific time. Kate knows how to throw a party. She is the Perle Mesta of Key West!

Enjoy your day!

  1. As a fellow political junkie, are you as enraged as I am when some bozo (i.e., politician and /or bureaucrat) is allowed by some talking head to say "default" without opposition.

    IMHO any reasonable person would pay the interest on the debt first, then the social security and other mandatory welfare payments, and come up with a "total must pay". Subtract that total from the budget to come up with "what's left to pay". Subtract "total must pay" from current receipts for "what's left".

    Divide "what's left" by "what's left to pay" and that's the haircut that the budget must be slashed by.

    No one is going to be happy, but no default. It'll set off a lot of wailing and gnashing but that's what fiscal discipline is all about.

    That's why I say don't raise the debt ceiling. And, don't let politicians and bureaucrats scare old people by saying no soc sec or the markets by saying default.

    "What's left"
