[Take The Survey] Monroe County Strategic Plan Survey For 2023. You can even see the results instantly as what other residents say. The only thing I didn’t like about the survey is that you have to vote on everything even if you don’t want any of the things they offer. There is no ‘opt out’ choice. Link
[Shopping in 2022] Same price but smaller size jars, containers for items we have had forever, ie ketchup, bullion, hot sauce, cereal, etc.

Tom Brady in underwear pictures? I’ve been in locker rooms many times. Who cares?

[Political Correctness] We live in a time where intelligent people are being silenced so that stupid people won’t be offended.

I made a pot of French onion soup — home made. After it cools, you have to look at it like drywall, skim the fat off after it cools. Heck yeah, pot of soup for about $6.

[Backseat Love] Lawsuits for sexual transmitted disease — in a car] This world has gone tops turvy. Link
[Calm] Thursday morning there was absolutely no sound. None. No water lapping or breeze blowing. The backcountry was so calm in the you could hear a heartbreak. The cormorant’s shadow is on the water. Upper Harbor Key is on the vanishing horizon that cannot be seen for the humidity. This is paradise.
[Gone Forever] Some things that are gone forever that existed in the 1960s in America. Video
Monroe County Town Hall Meeting invites citizen input. The Board of County Commissioners will use the feedback and survey results to set FY23 strategic priorities at an upcoming meeting (The meeting in Marathon was June 3).
Big Pine Key Strategic Town Hall – June 8, Wednesday at 6PM at Big Pine Community Park (End of Sands Rd)
Upper Keys Veteran’s and Strategic Town Hall June 14 at 11 am at Murray Nelson Government Center, Key Largo

If you are unable to attend one of the in-person meetings, the survey is available at Link


[Idiots] Brought  to you by the same species that landed on the moon.

[“War guns”] I don’t understand the poster’s wish to modify the constitution to only allow handguns, rifles, and shotguns. It already has been modified to not allow modern weapons of war a very long time ago. What it does allow are handguns, rifles, and shotguns. What is the point of the post? No weapons of war, sub machine guns, heavy machine guns, or assault rifles have been used in the resent mass shootings. Regular rifles were used. So, what are you saying?
[The Iron Curtain] We now have a communist country taking over a democratic country on prime time TV. Judges being hunted down and school shootings every week. This country’s going to hell in a hand basket.
[Lazy Bums] Expounding on the post regarding lack of a desire to work:  In a recent interview with Variety, Kim Kardashian offered her advice to women in business, “Get your f**king ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.”
Maybe the younger kids will understand her words, because they sure as crap don’t listen to seniors.
[Friday Joke] Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco, and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, “Think I’m gonna divorce the wife – she ain’t spoke to me in over 2 months.” Earl spits overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and says, “Better think it over; women like that are hard to find.”
[Apple] Everything you need to know about the new Apple M2 laptops. Here are all the new features coming to your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Mac this fall. Link
[“Hate groups”] It’s not that they won’t listen to reason, it’s that they can’t. And that’s why they are a problem.

Well, if my girlfriend won’t listen to me, maybe she’ll listen to the mailman.

I tried to join a Facebook group known as IrmaBigPineKey right after my spouse died, and was told that admins are reviewing my application. That was a year and a half ago! “You’re at the limit for pending content in this group”, it says. Supposedly, they will contact me as soon as the admins complete their review. I must have slipped through the cracks, but I am unable to contact the admins to see what the holdup is. Ideas, anyone?
[Potatoes and Butter] Can a person live on a diet of potatoes and butter? People could “survive” eating a very limited diet, but they wouldn’t get everything their bodies needs to function.
[Crazy World] A woman says she caught STD in a car. Auto insurance has to pay out $5.2 million. Link
[Cats] Logical reasons why some men have dogs and not wives.
1. The later you are, the more excited your dog is to see you.
2. Dogs don’t notice if you call them by another dog’s name.
3. Dogs like it if you leave lots of things on the floor.
4. Dogs’ parents never visit.
5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.
6. You never have to wait for a dog; they’re ready to go, instantly, 24 hours a day.
7. Dogs find you amusing when you’re pissed.
8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.
9. Dogs won’t wake you up at night to ask: “If I died, would you get another dog?”
10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and sell ’em.
11. When you drop a silent one, dogs don’t run around frantically with room spray.
13. Dogs never tell you to stop scratching your balls. Instead, they sit pondering why you don’t lick ’em.
15. If a dog smells another dog on you, it won’t kick you in the crotch; it just finds it interesting.
16. If a dog runs off and leaves you, it won’t take half your stuff.
To verify these statements, lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour. Then open the door and observe who’s happy to see you.
[No Joke] $5.07 gas on Big Pine Key Thursday. Sob, my truck gets between 10-16 mpg.
