I was out yesterday at noon. It was a chilly 74. degrees. Back out again at 4 on my way to The Grand for happy hour. It was a cold 70 degrees.  The rapid 4 degree drop could be felt.

The night was in the high 60s. I slept buried under a heavy quilt. At the moment, it is 68 degrees. The high today will only reach 74.

A sad but humorous experience yesterday. I fell for the first time in a long time. As I was leaving The Grand. The steps got me. A waiter helped me up.

I have lost close to 50 pounds the past year and a half. Doctor says it is good. My pants which were tight at the waist are now too large. I pull them tight with my belt. As I was being helped up, my pants fell. In front of The Grand on Duval! Rapidly pulled them up and hurried to my car. As I sat there, I could not help but laugh and mentally refer to myself as a dumb ass. Buy new pants!

One comment on “THE WEATHER…..COLD

  1. Thank goodness you are ok. I was not so lucky, 3 weeks ago I fell on the stairs in my home and broke my ankle, age 67. Walking boot for now. I have read your blog for years and enjoy your stories. Enjoyed Irma and Me. Have not been back to Key West since 2010. Enjoy you and Michael and I am traveling through Central America with Him and Layne. Made a career change in 2010 and time has not allowed me to get back. Retired this year but health does not allow as much travel time.

    Take care
