For several years, I enjoyed dinner 1-2 times a week at La Trattoria. The one on Duval. Generally at the bar. Enjoyed Kathy and Erin and the many locals who dined there. Then, I stopped going. Parking the reason.

Parking is a pain in Key West. I used to park behind Antonia’s. The City decided to build a new city hall, fire station and parking lot. Gone was my parking place mid-Duval! Gone was my time at La Trattoria and other places mid-Duval.

The construction took 3 years.

The new parking lot is open. I have yet to adjust my routine, however. To get back to La Trattoria and other places in the area.

Last night, dinner at La Trattoria. Not the one on Duval. The one on the Atlantic Ocean/Southern Boulevard. I was driving by and decided to stop. The only other time I had been there was when the location opened about 5 years ago.

The food was excellent! Same as La Trattoria on Duval. A pleasant atmosphere. Quiet bar. Three people. A big TV. I can see my stopping by for dinner at the bar on occasion.

And, I will get back to the La Trattoria on Duval!

My yesterday started with the anti-gravity treadmill. A wonder! Terrific machine!

Cupboard bare again. Stopped at Publix. They are renovating. Make it as lovely as they wish. However, stop moving things around. Not all products are where they were. Confusing till I get it down.

Researched material for tonight’s blog talk radio show. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Join me at 9 my time for some interesting commentary. www.blogtalkradio.com/key-west-lou.

Topics include the deceptive method by which the unemployment rate is arrived at, Australia and vaccinations, interesting facts re Pope Francis, the American worker earning less today than 40 years ago, subliminal messages and movies, Chinese troops heading to Syria?, and more.

Then a nap. I was tired from the treadmill in the morning.

Filled the gas tank 2 days ago. First time in years the cost was under $30. Twenty nine dollars and change. The band played!

The cost $2.45 a gallon. That was two days ago. Yesterday, I noticed the price had risen ten cents to $2.55 a gallon.

I can remember buying gas when I first started to drive. Cost $.17 a gallon. For real! The attendant pumped the gas and washed your windows.

Price and service gone forever!

Enjoy your day!



  1. Yep, the phony unemployment numbers are to try and make the current administration look as though its doing something. Most folks know the real figure is about double what they try to claim.

    • I would say they have been fudging the employment numbers since long before Obama and even before Clinton, both Democrat and Republican Administrations.

      John Williams ShadowStats website is the information source for the real numbers the Guvment lies about:
