Cold outside. Cold inside. ‘Nuff said.

One more point, however. I wore long pants yesterday.

Spent the morning reading the local newspapers and watching the talk shows.

Anyone who has spent time in Key West is aware that the Key West Citizen has a crime report section. It is entitled Crime Report and is at the bottom of page 2. It generally reports some odd ball criminal thing that occurred the day before.

Yesterday’s was more than normally interesting. It was the story of an adult man who apparently got ripped off by a massage parlor. At 5 in the morning. The individual claimed he wanted a massage of his right shoulder. Paid with a credit card. The bill was to be $500. The massage parlor charged $9,000 to his bank card!

Later when he discovered the error or rip off, depending on how one might view it, he contacted the police. The Key West police. He was told there was nothing they could do about the situation since he in fact did receive the massage. The police considered the overcharge a civil issue.

I think the police were wrong. But that is another matter. An $8,500 overcharge on a bank card is larceny in my book. Grand larceny!

I suspect there may be more to this story than we have been made aware of.

I did not know massage parlors were open at 5 am. I am usually in bed by 10 or 11. The bars close at 5. I am unaware of any place to eat at 5 am. Then again, it is not my world at 5 in the morning.

This is not the first story of this nature about which I have heard. A couple of years ago a man was at a gentlemen’s club. A strip club. He was there during normal business hours. His credit card was charged close to $15,000.

I hope he had a good time for that kind of money!

The balance of my day consisted of a normal Sunday. Quiet. A visit with the family, coffee at Plantation coffee, browsed through the New York Times. And a manicure. Late in the afternoon with Tammy. Jenna was there. Enjoyed running into her.

Tonight Syracuse basketball! The season is winding down. Only 5-6 games left before tournament time.

Syracuse plays Louisville. Louisville generally beats Syracuse. I hope not tonight. Syracuse is the better team. However, that means nothing in a Big East game.

I shall be enjoying the game at John Lukas’ Big Ten Sports Bar.

Enjoy your day!
