I am a retired New York attorney. Retirement came after 46 years in the practice. I retired to a home I had earlier purchased in Key West, Florida. I enjoyed living in Key West. I did not enjoy being retired. The pace of retired life was too slow for me. I decided to write. What? A blog. About my life in Key West. I was not computer literate. I paid a young lady $20 to set up the Key West Lou blog for me. She did it and showed me how to get in and out of it. That was 2007. The Key West Lou blog has a substantial number of loyal daily readers which continues to increase. The blog encouraged more from me. I started Key West Lou Law on Amazon Kindle. Both blogs resulted in me doing a radio show and then an Internet show. Both were and are known as The Key West Lou Legal Hour. What began as strictly a legal endeavor is now a talk show that covers sins and happenings everywhere. The Internet show is enjoyed weekly world-wide from places such as Papua, New Guinea to Beijing, China to Jakarta, Indonesia to Crete, Greece to Milan, Italy to London, England to Calitzdorp, South Africa and most of the fifty states. The Internet show led to a column in a local weekly newspaper which provided further opportunity for me to pontificate on a multitude of issues.

Following your blog for several months!

I do enjoy reading your blog each day. Thank you for sharing your life to all. It’s such a pleasure to read in this day and age.
So sorry to hear about your dad. He was one odd the nicest people I have ever met. Hope all is well with you.
I feel one of your current ads triggered my web browser to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.
I always love Elena’s art, so beautiful and unique…as is She..
We have been sister’s since 1965.. 🙂
Lou: I enjoy reading your blog each morning. I would like to hear your thoughts on raising and educating children in Key West. My guess is your daughter is pretty hands on! I have a 9 and 4 year old and the wife would like to live in Key West/Key Haven in the worst way. Her parents live on the base during the winter months. I can’t really find much information on this anywhere, other than go the Montessori route if you can get in. Your thoughts????
I happened upon your blog and your comment about shooting pool with Muzzy Garramone. I entered the US Navy with Muzzy on July 14, 1954 and we went through boot camp together. There is more to the story. Very coincidentally, I went through Utica today and drove right his home on Sage Court. It looks like the compound from the Godfather movie.
Always wanted to visit Key West and your comments may get me there.
Sorry about your dad passing. He was a wonderful man. Always helping people and very kind.
We met last year in the Chart House, I played the guitar for a little while and introduced myself to you. We are headed to KW in a few weeks. Any suggestions for new restaurants or ones we may not hvae found after 8 years of coming down.
Also do you know if and when Mary works at the chart house. we had a lot of fun with her last year.
It’s been a long time! Just wanted to say Hello.
This website is great. I like it.(www.activeerrorsfix.com) 557697cbc43deb8fbe920e52b5c6e94e
In case you haven’t realized it, between you and me, we’ve driven any reference to “marymount” on to Page NINE. Sadder, is that I know that. LAFF! fjohn68
is the quality ftoacr. Being honest, it is not a must, are we going to use this direction in every article/s? we must be a lot more positive about this. This isn’t a joke but in a sense it comes out to be. Let us keep this a lot more serious and to the point in the future.
