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
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….
