Today, I return to my beloved anti-gravity treadmill. At Body Owners. It has been more than three months since I last worked out on the machine.

First, it was a broken toe. Then, chest pains. I plan on starting slow. I am going to let the machine do half the work.

Sunday yesterday was the same as always. I wrote my KONK column. Took a little longer yesterday. I had research to complete. The title: Afghanistan and America’s Heroin Addiction. The problem overwhelming.

What stands out is most are not discussing America’s heroin addiction. Do you recall any of the primary candidates mentioning it?

The column publishes wednesday.

Dinner last night at Roostica. Spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce as my grandmother made it.

I intended to go to Publix afterwards. Absolutely nothing to eat in the house! I was too lazy. Have to get there sometime today.

Big Key West week ahead! The Key West Songwriters Festival. Twenty first year. Wednesday through sunday. More than 100 participants. Singers and music emanating from every nook and cranny. A music lovers delight!

My Canadian friend Suzan Hebditch leaves this morning. One of the items we discussed over dinner friday night was the immigration issue. Suzan believes the U.S. is screwing up. Disgracefully so. Besides her Canadian friends, she is in constant touch with many Europeans. All think we should be doing our part and taking in more immigrants.

I disagreed. This is an unusual group seeking asylum. I believe taking more than the 10,000 projected for this year would throw our lives and economy into disarray. Not a selfish position from my perspective. We have to be concerned for our own first. God bless Germany who is willing to take in one million more.

Sounds like I am American First. Not so. No way. However, I find nothing wrong with being concerned for me, mine, and my country re this point.

Suzan can be emotional. Strong in disagreement. Did everything but hit me.

On this day in 1933, the Loch Ness monster was sighted. Its first modern day sighting. Is the monster for real?

Enjoy your day!

  1. Dear Louis,

    Of course Nessie is real. You live in Key West so I would certainly expect you to “believe.” I mean, just spend an evening in any of a hundred places in Key West and listen to all the stories that are told.

    Although most of those stories sound like big fish stories, it turns out that they are real… or mostly real… ummmm… well at least based on some real factoid. So I find no reason not to believe that Nessie is real… or based on some real factoid.

    So it follows that you, more than most, should believe in Nessie… and Santa, and the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure I saw the Tooth Fairy on Duval last night.

    Long live Nessie.

  2. Heck, being from upstate New York one has to believe in Nessie’s sibling. Champ must exist because I heard from a friend that he heard from a fellow patron in the same bar that he saw him [ or her, or it ]. [ smiley face]
