Still Electioneering

I was amused, as I rode down White Street to see this huge billboard across the street from Sandy's Cafe dwarfing candidates for county commissioner and Sheriff...

In the grand scheme of things the Mosquito Control Board isn't the most important agency in the county. On the other hand they did just raise their -gasp!- tax rate by some modest rate this year. Perhaps candidates for this post do need the extra huge billboard!

Ps: Sandy's has closed for two week's vacation, news that shook rigid the Police Department where I work. What night shift will do without the only 24 hour outlet for Cuban con leché and pork sandwiches I just don't know. Hard times ahead.

Sunday Morning In Key West

There is something modern and convenient about plastic sheets covering pretty windows. One can't argue this is a sensible and convenient form of hurricane protection. It still looks odd when I see a reflection where there should be non.

Every time I walk Eaton and see the sign offering Big Pecker wines I think of Parrotdise which I miss on Little Torch Key. When the restaurant closed I figured the owner's son's wine sales would die. Not a bit of it and the silly wine name lives on.

The bikes are fine, sort of, locked to the city owned sign, not technically legal but can still park in their allotted spots on the street.

I wonder why the notion of free motorcycle parking is so hard for most American cities to grasp.

A contemplative Cheyenne at rest. She knows most of the answers to life's persistent questions but she isn't telling.
