Finally, Don and Chris are engaged. It only took 11 years for Don to bend a knee and ask…..Will you marry me? With a 2.5 carat engagement ring in hand.
Chris burst out crying and exclaimed…..Yes!
Chris should not have been so quick to accept. I would have made Don sweat a while for making Chris wait 11 years.
The couple happy. The wedding next year in Key West.
I met Don and Chris several years ago at the Chart Room. They visit Key West 3-4 times a year. Don is part owner of a South Korea company. He spends the better part of the year in South Korea. Chris travels for her employer. Marketing. Most recently in Germany.
Home is Syracuse.
Larry and Peggy…..I am proud of your son for finally doing the right thing. Chris is a wonderful person. Devoted to your Don. Don equally wonderful and devoted to Chris.
The perfect couple.
Don and Chris joined me at Aqua last night. Tom Luna and Heather Mae performing.
We parted company after Aqua. Don wanted to watch a football game. I wanted to go to bed. Stopped at Roostica on the way home for lemoncello wings.
Big night for the kids! Christmas tree lighting and Santa Claus at Bayview Park last night. Santa arrived on a fire truck, horn blaring all the way.
My podcast show this evening. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Nine my time. www.blogtalkradio.com/key-west-lou.
A different show tonight. My plan is to discuss one topic. A topic which the media fails to give proper attention. Actions taking place which bring shame to our Nation.
Standing Rock, North Dakota. Native Americans, a pipeline, and excessive police activity.
An interesting, fast moving, informative show. Again, join me.
Syracuse/Wisconsin tonight in basketball. Wisconsin a 6 point favorite.
My show interferes with watching. Game at 7. I will get in the first half and probably last 5 minutes. It will be the first time this season I will see Syracuse play.
Installment 25 of my rendition of the Key West Rotary history by Wright Langley. Today, years 1986-88.
Tomorrow, the final installment. Will center around Key West Rotary’s 75th anniversary.
Rotary’s budget in its infant years beginning in 1915 had to be a pittance. Not that way by the time 1986 came around. The projected income budget for the year was $68,415.
Rotary’s 1988 Annual Report noted the Club had 100 members.
Major accomplishments for the year included raising funds for Polio Plus, sponsoring Key West’s only Fourth of July fireworks (a tradition which began in 1979), sponsoring the Sunrise Rotary Club, continued the annual $4,000 scholarship, and established the Key West Rotary Foundation.
Tomorrow, Rotary’s 75th anniversary.
Enjoy your day!
