Hello goodbye auf weider sein goodbye.

I hate to go.

Thank you Sound of Music.

The title of today’s blog is the message. I have to take a bit of a hiatus. I am preparing for surgery. The blog absorbs too much of my time under the circumstances.

Today’s message is the last blog I shall prepare for a while. Roughly two months.

In the meantime, what to do to keep my friends interested.

This blog is 15 years old. It has grown beyond my expectations. I want my readers to be available when I return.

Fifteen years is a lot of blogs. More than 5,000.

A solution has been arrived at. Sloan three times a week will select one of the old blogs at random and reconstitute it as that day’s blog.

The three days a week are tuesday, thursday and sunday. “Her first blog” will appear this coming sunday and continue as indicated thereafter.

I thought an at random reading of a 5, 10 or 15 year old blog might prove interesting and rekindle some old memories.

Hope you enjoy the new format till I return!



  1. Sending good wishes for your successful surgery and a quick recovery. Will definitely miss your commentary on events of the day in Key West and the world!

  2. Good luck to you, Lou. Hope all goes well and you have a quick recovery. Please have Sloane keep us posted as to your surgery and recovery. We’ll miss you on a daily basis, but when life happens you’ve got to go with it. Hope to read you again soon!! Good thoughts and best wishes to you!

  3. Lou I get up early every morning just to read your blog. You are the best! Please take care during your recovery. Everybody at the Chart Room sure misses you these last couple years. Steve & Cindy
