Keeping the Smiles On

Life in Key West has challenges like rusty bolts and lizards. I did not realize that Home Depot and lowe's had the screen framing screw system that does not rust out. We saw the product at the Marathon ace hardware. Happy I am to have bought this, now that I have done a few. It really is a major improvement, as I see the difference of taking the rusty screws out and putting in the new ones. I started the process this afternoon, just need to wait for more clouds to cool things down. The rusty pool cage bolts are coming out! I am going to make it lizard free. Two new screen door sweeps will block the holes by the doors. I am going to seal off any other ways they can get in. If the southernmost lizards cannot get inside easily, then the new painted floor will stay much cleaner without the lizard droppings. My inspiration is the Truman Annex, as I want my home to looks just so perfect. No rusty bolts and no lizards, just chickens!

Good Places to Go

We always have so much fun when where and the Marathon area and I think it's one of those ten mile square chunks that is one of the better places to vacation. There's a lot of good places to go and one of my picks is the dockside Tropical Cafe and you need to Try a Little bit of Everything. Events are huge and one of the ones I would never miss is the craft beer and bubbly festival, and that is a good time every December at the Marathon Community Park. It's nice that they do a lot of things at keysbeerandbubblyfest.com for the local fisherman's hospital foundation and that helps people with school payments to get in college and for healthcare for needy people.

Drinking wine is a lot better when you're on island and maybe even tonight I'm gonna get some champagne when I'm looking for my refreshments and then some hot chicken wings to go with it. Champagne and chicken wings and then I can toss the bones out into the waters to let the little fish eat on them which is actually kind of thrilling because you can see down in the water so nice. Make sure you stop over at town square mall, there's a bunch a different things in their on the Overseas Highway just before you head down towards Key West. Thank goodness for this lovely town and all the good things that we have going on for cuisine, entertainment, and cold drinks. Did I mention the fishing opportunities!
