The Big Pine Key Senior Center was a social hub for the Lower Keys; it has not reopened since Hurricane Irma, September of 2017.
What bothers me most is the lies.
Why for over 5 years have the Commissioners said they are “working on it”, when anyone asked about the Senior Center.
Why didn’t they simply say, we don’t care about your senior center, because we have other plans for that property.
Why didn’t they say, we’ll charge the taxpayers more, and rent space, rather than use the building that was convenient. (The taxpayers paid for a new roof for it in 2016).
Why didn’t they say that in January of this year they merged the senior center property at 380 Key Deer Blvd into the 390 Key Deer Blvd which houses the fire station?
Why did they lie and say that repairs would cost more than what the building is worth, when they didn’t have an inspection, or put out bids to learn the cost of repairs?
Why should we let them approve the $305,806.20 for a 5 year lease?

[Friday Joke] Ethel checked into a Motel on her 65th Birthday, she was lonely, a little depressed at her advancing age so decided to risk an adventure. She thought, “I’ll call one of those men you see advertised in phone books for escorts and sensual massages.”
She looked through the phone book, found a full-page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony, a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo. He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six-pack abs and she felt quite certain she could bounce a dime off his well-oiled buns. She figured, what the heck, nobody will ever know. I’ll give him a call.
“Good evening, ma’am, how may I help you?”
Oh my, he sounded sooo sexy! Afraid she would lose her nerve if she hesitated, so she rushed right in, “I hear you give a great massage. I’d like you to come to my motel room and give me one. No, wait, should be straight with you. I’m in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys, everything you’ve got in your bag of tricks. We’ll go at it all night … tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything, I’m ready! Now how does that sound?”
He said, “That sounds absolutely fantastic, ma’am, but this is the front desk and you need to press 9 for an outside line.”


There is a reason why they are called the “Greatest Generation.”

[“Free Food”] Is the Medicare “flex spending card” a real thing or is someone just trying to sell you more insurance? I don’t trust it. Please let me know, but you go first…  Link

Your life in 3214 free calculators. Omni Calculator.
I just searched for sleep masks to keep the light out while I try to sleep during the day. I found a padded silk covered soft mask with an elastic band for $.80 cents, no minimum order and free shipping from the manufacturer in Hong Kong. The same item and picture are displayed in one of our local pharmacies for $9.95 plus tax. That is a 1144% markup if the pharmacy pays .80 cent each, but they buy in volume so cut the cost in half. And you wonder why your paycheck doesn’t go as far as it used to. Oh yes, you have to drive to the pharmacy to buy it at $3.45+ per gallon of gas and add auto maintenance, ect. I buy everything online now.
[Movies] The horror movie I was watching had a cat so I knew before it was over the cat would be nailed to the door or some other horror.

Some more fun you can have with a 3D printer.

[Drinking Water] What the FKAA isn’t saying is that the pipe replacement project isn’t for the area that has had the main breaks. It’s for the Fills area mm77-81. These main breaks are a result of poor management for the last 20 years at FKAA where it has been run by ex lawyers and now by politicians.

[Naval Air Station Key West] Regarding the breach of security at Naval Air Station Key West, why did the armed sentry not “light em up”?
Our borders are being invaded daily by illegals. Don’t lock down, chase em down! Bull crap, this is a high priority area, treat it as such. Link

[3AM] So a neighbor knocked on my front door at 3am. 3am! luckily I was already up playing the bag pipes

[It’s Always Something…] Bailout of banks in 2008 and now again in 2023 (higher fees to be passed to end users — us)
Reparations, Evanston IL, and now 2023, San Francisco CA paid to discriminated blacks? (what about women, gays, Latinos, Jews, Catholics, Germans, Italians, Poles, Indians, and countless more)
Just when we have a little lull in life, things go batshit again.

To all the people in my life who make me smile, here is a big hug for you.
[“Free Food – Medicare Flex Card”] This is not a Medicare benefit provided by the US Govt. It is only offered by some Advantage Plans which are run by private insurance companies. I did not open the link. Many ads are only used to gain access to seniors’ information and are scams. I hope this was not the intent of that post. Please folks, always research before being victimized. If it’s too good to be true—it’s not.
I’m fat, but I identify as skinny. I’m trans-slender.
[Politically Correct Dogs] In CA there is a bill in the legislature to ban trained dogs from airport security checks because -you guessed it—they are racist and so they pick out many more blacks carrying drugs than whites.
The author of this bill says that because black slaves were chased by dogs 200 years ago, there is a racist factor, and that blacks use more drugs due to their slavery heritage causing them stress, and so should not be prosecuted for breaking the law. So no more security dogs should be allowed in airports.
Those dogs apparently have not forgotten their slave chasing ancestry 200 years ago, and are now out to get black lawbreakers. You may find this bizarre, ignorant and insanity run amok, but then you just are not understanding racism has even permeated dogs.

I’ve been canning soup this week getting ready for winter. Follow me on Facebook for more recipes.

[Water] I called FKAA this morning and asked about the water conservation request.  The representative told me that it will take a number of weeks to bring the reserve water levels back to normal as they were severely depleted during the recent pipe breaks.  They are still working on the pipes and if there is another unexpected break in the pipes we will be in big trouble due to the low reserves.
I’m hoping it will rain as forecast in the next few days so I can collect rainwater in my trash barrels for my darling plants.

[Holy Credit Cards] Throughout history, we can see how we have been slowly conditioned to come to this point where we are on the verge of a cashless society. Did you know that Jesus foretold of this event almost 2,000 years ago?
“He (the false prophet who deceives many by his miracles–Revelation 19:20) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
This could only be speaking of a cashless society. Why’s that? Revelation says that we cannot buy or sell unless we receive the mark of the beast. If physical money was still in use, we could buy or sell with one another without receiving the mark. This would contradict scripture that states we need the mark to buy or sell!

[Friday Joke] As good as this bar is,” said the Scotsman, “I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow, there’s a wee place called McTavish’s. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he’ll buy the fifth drink.”
“Well, Angus,” said the Englishman, “At my local in London, the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two.”
“Ahhh, dat’s nothin’,” said the Irishman, “back home in my favorite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they’ll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then, when you’ve had enough drinks, they’ll take you upstairs and see dat you gets laid, all on the house!”
The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true. “Did this actually happen to you?”
“Not meself, personally, no,” admitted the Irishman, “but it did happen to me sister quite a few times.”
