Jimmy Buffett…..Random thoughts and observations.

The whole nation is “celebrating” his passing. Not for a day. It is ongoing.

“Wasting away again in Margaritaville” is a lifestyle. Such is why persons such as myself opted to live here.

A piece of information from this morning’s Keys Citizen: The Margaritaville cafe on the Las Vegas strip is the top grossing restaurant in the Nation.

Key West not the only locale reacting to Buffett’s death. Nationwide. Cities like New Orleans parading and singing. Ninety thousand at the Alabama/Middle Tennessee State football game singing Margaritaville. Chicago Cubs special 7th inning stretch tribute. Paul McCartney singing. Kenny Chesney coming to Key West to sing his good byes. Everyone happy! Paying credit to a man who made them happy.

I still feel sad. An occasional tear appearing.

Everything amazing!

On this day in 1698, Russia’s Peter the Great imposed a tax on beards. It was part of the Tsar’s effort to bring Russian society in line with European models. To enforce the ban, he empowered police to forcibly and publicly shave those who refused to pay the tax.

Would DeSantis try such a thing to increase tax revenues?

Mother Theresa died this day in 1997 in Calcutta, India, at the age of 97. Took her a long time to meet God face to face. He probably permitted her to remain alive on Earth to continue doing her unique good…..God’s will, God’s way.

The Grand for Happy Hour today. I have not been out since friday.

Enjoy your day!
