Over the years, I have made some great friends. Most funny. Typical are Fran and Tom Dixon from Buffalo. They visit Key West 3-4 times a year. Tom is involved with Ocean Key. This photo was taken friday night at La Te Da. Says it all. Fun is what Key West is all about.


Fran and Lou Key West


It has been extremely hot the past week. Low 90s in Key West. Not as bad as other parts of the country. However, bad enough. Not the time to be outside.

Ocean temperature has been in the mid 90s when normally it is in the mid 80s. Makes a hell of a difference. 

A meteorologist made an interesting comment yesterday re one of the effects of the high ocean temperature re the Keys. He claimed the coral, which has already been in trouble for years, would be dead by the end of the summer. Sounds pretty severe. I am not a meteorologist. Find his statement hard to believe. Hope he is wrong.

A next door neighbor is 85. Our cars are parked next to each other. As I was leaving Friday, he drove in. Sopping wet. His tee shirt soaked. He had been hitting golf balls.

My neighbor visits doctors as frequently as I. I told him he was a flaming ass. He shrugged his shoulders and said he had gotten bored from staying in.

Are we anti-everything? A remake of Disney’s Snow White deletes the seven dwarfs. Only one will appear.

Why? Issue appears to include “dwarfism.” No one buying the line. Movie people are upset. They claim viewers will be very unhappy in 2024 when the movie is released. 

Watched Rory McIlroy in the third round of the Scottish Open yesterday. He leads the field by 1 stroke at the end of 3 rounds.

He should be leading by 5 or 6. Driver and irons terrific. Putting sucked.

If he loses today, his putting will be the blame.

Nothing is sacred. Even religious persons want to tear down that which has been acceptable for over 2,000 years.

Archbishop Stephen Cottrell is one of the Church of England’s highest ranking members. He has taken issue with “Our Father” in the Lord’s prayer. He claims the basis for his position is “earthly fathers have been destructive and abusive, and for all of us who have labored rather too much from an oppressively patriarchal grip on life.”

Something must be in the air. Got to be. Too many crazy people.

An article in Sportsheedo Health and Fitness claims: People with the longest life span have two common truths. Not dieting or exercise. It’s personality traits. A positive attitude and high emotional awareness aka emotional intelligence.

Not established gospel. Yet. May never be.

I’m 88. Rarely exercised. Dieted frequently with little long term success. I do have a positive attitude. Though intelligent, not emotionally so.

Ergo, not certain any of this is valid. It does make interesting reading, however.

Enjoy your Sunday!
