I love writing the KONK Life column. Immensely.
The topics can get a bit heavy. Too much heavy tires me out and I suspect my readers also. Ergo, every three or four weeks I do what I describe as a light column. Not necessarily funny. Merely soft and easy.
I wrote this week’s column yesterday. Since I had begun the research Friday night, I was able to complete the column yesterday. A big deal! My Sunday is now free. All day!
Kissing the topic. The simple ordinary everyday connection between two humans.
The column basically a history of kissing. There was a time when people did not kiss. A time also when kissing was banned. Human nature being what it is, kissing survived. Fortunately.
The column publishes Wednesday in KONK Life.
The Syracuse/North Carolina game was exciting. Syracuse was in there till about three minutes to go. Syracuse rebounded and shot well. The problem continues to be the lack of a big man.
Based on the play, you knew Boeheim was back! His nine game suspension ended.
As expected, Boeheim received a rousing welcome when he stepped onto the court. Twenty six thousand strong. I was happy for him and at the same time sad. He appeared tired. Very tired. His hair totally white. The suspension aged the man.
Florida is once again engaged in a strange venture. The Second Python Challenge. 1/16-2/14.
Florida’s python population is out of control. The hope of the State is to maintain, not eradicate the pythons.
The Python Challenge permits man to hunt the pythons. The last hunt was 2013. All of 68 pythons were captured or killed. My fear is a python will kill a hunter. Gulp!
The State says even though the capture/kill number will be small, it is helpful to the State in determining their eating habits and paths of travel.
I believe the Challenge to be an ill conceived venture. Better the time and man power were spent figuring out how to get rid of the hundreds of thousands living out there. Most in the Keys.
I rarely buy a Powerball Jackpot lottery ticket. I did this week. Ten. Twenty dollars. Why not! The prize $950 million.
No one won. Another drawing this week. I will buy another ten. The ante will be upped. It is anticipated to $1.3 billion.
I think the lottery is a wonderful thing. Makes instantaneous millionaires out of those who were without. The winner can truly say…..What a country America!
Big night tonight! A date, dinner at Tavern ‘n Town and Bobby Nesbitt.
The lovely June Hudson returned this past week. We will be enjoying Bobby Nesbitt together at the Tennessee Williams’ Theater following dinner at Tavern ‘n Town.
A perfect evening!
Enjoy your Sunday!
