This morning’s Key West Citizen in its World Almanac Section noted that today was the birthday of George M. Cohan (1878-1942). I love Cohan’s music and Jimmy Cagney’s role as Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy.

Cohan wrote songs like Over There, Give My regards To Broadway, The Yankee Doodle Boy, and You’re A Grand Old flag. He entertained millions.

The movie of his life starred James Cagney. Cagney received an Academy Award for his performance. The movie was spectacular! I have seen the reruns at least twenty times in my life and enjoyed each one.

The gym was my first stop yesterday. Bad, but not as bad as monday. I survived once again. Albert is doing a wonderful job. I hate him!

I went to the gym prepared. I had my sand chair and a towel in the trunk. Plus, a book. Headed straight over to Higgs Beach afterwards.

I was sweating big time from the work out. Went into the water immediately for a quick dip to cool off. The water was warm. Like bath water.

Placed the sand chair in the shade of a palm tree. Palm trees do not provide that much shade. The chair must be situated just right and moved periodically with the moving sun.

I continued my reading of HRC. Again, about Hillary but not the book she wrote. The book covers her time as Secretary of State. A most competent person. I would be comfortable with her as President.

I give thought each week as to what I am going to write for my next KONK Life column. The subject matter does not always come to mind easily. This is one of those weeks. Still do not know what I am going to write about. In between reading about Hillary, I gave thought to what the topic might be.

Arthur has gone from a tropical depression to a tropical storm to an anticipated #1 hurricane. The North Carolina shore seems to be in its path. I hope it misses.

Do not think that  because a hurricane is only to projected as a #1, that it is nothing. If my recollection proves correct, Wilma was a #1. It was not the hurricane that did the damage, it was the six foot surge that it brought six hours later.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Lou, I would not be ‘comfortable’ with Hilliary as President. I can just hear her – What difference does it make! Please, Lou, please.

  2. Lou: WRT to hillary, sorry, but she’s … …

    1) an incompetent administrator (i.e, how State was organized)

    2) she’s either a liar, or was unable to get BHO44 to admit the truth that the video was not the cause (As a liar, she’s unworthy. As an “unable”, she’s ineffective — that’s probably worse.)

    3) an she’s dishonest (e.g., the anti-Nixon briefs, Whitewater, “what difference”)

    4) she’s in poor health (e.g., all the rumored medical problems some confirmed by Bill and her book)

    5) Bill is both a liability and a hazard (i.e., who is in charge)

    6) They are some skeletons in the closet like Vince Foster

    7) She’s “tone deaf” and out of touch (e.g., “dead broke”)

    Sorry I wish her no ill will, unlike Jane Fonda, but I don’t see her as a good choice for the first female President.
