IS­LAND JOUR­NAL

Times of the Islands - - Departments -

Open Mic night at Ge­orge & Wendy’s was amaz­ing last night. One of Chuck Berry’s long­time band­mates wowed the room, along with other greats. Stand­ing-room only, as al­ways!

Fri­day

Funny how a nice cold beer makes the Lazy Flamingo porch seem more com­fort­able in the sum­mer. Cold Cae­sar salad helps, too.

Sun­day

Saw that amaz­ing seashell car run­ning around the is­lands. How long must THAT have taken to cover a Bee­tle in shells? No words.

Mon­day

Have de­cided to lobby for more craft and for­eign beers on the is­lands.

Tues­day

Spied the pics of VP Pence up at the Tim­bers to­day. Matt’s col­lec­tion of VIP din­ers just keeps grow­ing!

Thurs­day

Fran­cis Bai­ley would re­ally like what’s been done with his old mid-is­land homestead. Amaz­ing trails!

Sun­day

Sneaked away for a city week­end in St. Pete. So much to do up there, and it’s so close. ...

Mon­day

Al­most mango sea­son!!!!!

Tues­day

Had a hi­lar­i­ous dream about Ro­tunda and some UFOs. Or was it a dream? Ha!

Thurs­day

Boated up to North Cap to see Z&A. One beer turned into three. Good thing I left early.

Satur­day

Ru­mor mill is swirling about a re­al­ity TV star on Captiva, but it seems odd he would be here in sum­mer. ...

Mon­day

Wish I had made it out to Den­ver for the Dar­ryl Pot­torf ex­hibit—but did get to pre­view the re­lated print ma­te­ri­als and a re­view, thanks to a savvy friend.

Tues­day

Found some great co­conut recipes. Now, how do I get the darned things open?

Wed­nes­day

Tonight is Key lime chicken night: mari­nade of stone ground mus­tard, Key lime juice and man­grove honey. Mm­m­m­mmm.

Fri­day

WGCU is run­ning a cool se­ries this month― per­fect for air-con­di­tioned night­time re­treats.

Satur­day

I swear Ital­ians must not sweat. Friends G&R just love love love Au­gust. What’s up with that?

Sun­day

School starts soon. I’m ac­tu­ally go­ing to miss hear­ing all the bi­cy­cle “ding-a-lings” on the bike path, see­ing all the happy kids.

Tues­day

Heard two tourists in a fierce de­bate about the best Key lime pie. Ha ha!

Wed­nes­day

Played early morn­ing ten­nis with M&S and a vis­i­tor from Bel­gium. Lots of fun.

Fri­day

I heard Sani­bel is go­ing to be fea­tured on the cover of a na­tional magazine about the coast. Good call!
