Dueling Bartenders was its usual terrific show last night. Always good.
Tom Luna bartending. He never dresses. Lovely Goddess Galore. A sometimes dresser. Dressed last night. And, Beatrix Dixie. Always dressed.
Beatrix is perfection in every way.From a padded ass to padded boobs. Look real!
I noticed Beatrix’s fingernails were not done. Surprising since everything else was perfect. Her nails looked like a ditch digger’s. I said nothing to her.
However her nails reminded me of a another drag queen working at La Te Da several years ago. Her/his name escapes me. Dressed to perfection. Lousy nails. Just like Beatrix’s. I asked why his nails were not done in view of everything else being perfect. He said: “Because I am a man.”
To some a lifestyle. To others, a job.
Spent a good part of the afternoon prepping for tonight’s blog talk radio show. A good one!
Topics include the Presidential campaign, hurricane Matthew, a Chamberlain/Trump comparison, South Carolina-ZIKA and bees, local governments paying bills with police fines, veterans’ corpses rotting in Chicago VA hospital, Assange ready to letting go with another 10,000 e-mails (perhaps today), Greek police and pensioners collide, how elite Europeans set Greece up for a fascist takeover, a secret US government airline that flies out of commercial airports.
Plus, New York Times not having paid any taxes in 2014, a Bush daughter attended a Paris Clinton fundraiser, a German mayor beaten unconscious after he revealed a plan to accept more refugees, why governments and banks want to eliminate your cash, the rich burying gold bars in Swiss banks as an alternative to bank deposits, and more.
Join me at 9 my time. www.blogtalkradio.com/key-west-lou. A fast moving half hour. Revealing information.
A heart doctor visit late yesterday afternoon. I had been exhausted tired. Ass dragging. Thought it might be my beta blocker. Dr. McIvor cut my daily dosage in half two weeks ago. His concern was my blood pressure might go out of whack.
I returned yesterday to have my blood pressure tested. The same. Good. No longer tired, also.
Stopped at Don’s Place before Aqua. Chatted with Jimmy and Toni. Missy bartending.
After Aqua stopped at the Chinese restaurant for dinner. I had a yearning for Chinese. Rare. A cup of egg drop soup and two egg rolls. Plus, a diet Coke. Cost, $6.50. Amazing!
Until recently when she retired, Dr. Jackie Lefferts was my primary physician for ten years. Her nurse Patti Cabrera weighed me, checked my blood pressure, etc. She also gave me shots over the years. some in the butt.
Patti, a lovely person. I especially love her because she read my KONK Life column.
Dr. Lefferts recently retired. Patti did also after 50 years of nursing.
This morning’s Key West Citizen recognized Patti in its Familiar Faces section. A well deserved tribute.
Suicides seem to be with us more in recent years. Military and veterans committing suicide at the rate of 20 a day. A primary reason, the 3-4 tours of duty we have imposed on our military the past 15 years. Blood, gore and death have a way of catching up.
General Eisenhower in 1943 warned of the risk of shell shock. He defined shell shock as prolonged exposure to combat. Men break down, he said. Some commit suicide.
The problem with us again. The solution a larger military. The only way to get it is a draft. No one wants to recommend it.
The Vice-Presidential debate this evening. Starts at 9. Because of my podcast, I will miss the first half hour.
Enjoy your day!
