The Florida Keys are made up of a few islands.
Like 1700, give or take a few 😉
Key West is at the very tip of the island chain and is only abut 90 miles from Cuba.
It’s a land of tall pies
Bicycle riding birds
restaurant going roosters
and color that will make you stop dead in your tracks!!!!
Author Ernest Hemingway called Key West home for awhile.
Ernest had a few cats.
Like 40, give or take a few 😉
Those cats had 6 toes, instead of the usual 5.
That’s a lot of toes.
Eddie is a big fan of Ernest. Says he was a man of great wisdom….loves to quote him.
“Cat’s were put into the world to disprove the dogma that all things were created to serve man. ”
No surprise that Ernie’s house, as Ed calls him, was where Eddie wanted to meet up with me.
Ernie’s cats have the run of the place.
A fresh water fountain
(originally a urinal at Hemingway’s favorite Key West bar, Sloppy Joe’s)
gutters to nap on
flower beds to relax
lots of places to position for a pounce
and all because they are descendants of Ernie’s original cats with 6 cute little toes 🙂

So there was a bit of an incident with Ed (we will all now feign some shock…)
Eddie’s observation on the incident?? “The sign said nothing about laying on the furniture.”
I didn’t even bother to argue. I had places to go and banjo playing Darth Vadars to see.
Key West—-I get all hot and bothered just thinking about it 🙂
P.S. I had several folks wanting to know the color of my nail polish in my last post pics. It’s called, oddly enough, “I Don’t Bite” — a perfect rebuttal to my sister’s last text message….
P.P.S. A new workshop has been added for Shreveport, Louisiana—for details, just click here
and no, I haven’t left for home yet.
I am getting pretty good at digging my heels in the sand….
