Flaming Maggie

It's puerile I know but this alteration to a perfectly good road sign makes me laugh. Not least because the Island House is the building round the corner. Vive la différence

Fleming Street is named for one of the four Americans who bought the island from Juan Salas who had it endowed to him by the King of Spain. John Fleeming (sic) lives on remembered by some of us when we ride this street. That there used to be a gay bookstore on Fleming at Margaret gave me the idea for title of this post.

A different Key West where at least Island Books continues unpeturbed by modern electronic life.
