Sugarloaf Key FL

John was out fishing early and got only one big snapper. I had to go through and test all my harmonica equipment. Last week at Looe Key I had some technical difficulties. Tonight is Tiki Jam night so Chicago Sandy has to be ready. We picked up Linda and headed to Looe Key and met Craig, Debi, Steve and Sue. Of course there were lots of artists that were there. Popeye, Moose, Micheal Oben, Mike V, Scary Gary, Cory, Woody, Charlie, Don Chairs and others. Chicago Sandy got to play a lot. As always, we had a great time.

John was out fishing by 630am and home by 1030am with his mangrove snapper limit. I stayed home to practice harp and uke. Tonight is the first night Looe Key Tiki Bar is having Taco Tuesday and Jam Night since Irma. They lost the thatched roof but they have a blue tarp as a temporary roof for the stage. We met Steve, Sue, Mike and Liz there. The tiki was loaded with artists and friends. Chicago Sandy got to jam but there are so many artists that some just won’t get to play. Everyone had a great time and needed this after Irma. Little things are so important now. When we got back to Lazy Lakes, we noticed lights up and working by the pool. Very nice.

We were up and out by 930am. We picked up Richard and then Douglas. Meeting of the Minds (MOTM) Parrothead Phocking is taking place this week. We headed to the Tiki House to see Sam Rainwater. His wife Elizabeth was also there.

We went next door to Capt Tony’s to see Mike Miller with the Boat Drunks. Sally joined us there. Our friend, CW Colt is performing at Two Friends so we walked over there Cyndie and Hollie joined our group. Chicago Sandy got to sit on on one song. We ran into Ann Ballard, a parrothead friend there.

When CW finished his show we headed back to Capt Tony’s for more Boat Drunks and ran into our friends, Pete and Kathy, Also Bob. His wife Kathy wasn’t with him today but we will see them again. Now it’s time for the Duval Street Fest and Howard Livingston.

At the street fest, Steve and Sue joined our group. I kidnapped Sally and we went upstairs to throw beads and beach balls down to the crowd. After Howard, we lost Cyndie and Hollie and we all walked down to Lucy’s for more cocktails and some dinner. We had a great day!

This morning we had our coffee outside with our nature window. Debi joined us and the John and I took a walk around our lake. We got to visit with a few people and then worked on getting our site set up. We will be here 6-7 months.

Now it’s time to regroup. Our friend, CW Colt is having a Concert House Party tonight. CW Colt, the Sauce Boss (Bill Wharton) and Mel Milton is playing to a small audience. The Sauce Boss is making his famous Gumbo while rockin on stage. Cyndie and Hollie were helping CW with the event and we met Sally, Chicki and Barry there.

They had a little jam session at the end and R.B Toler who is a singer/songwriter got up to play with CW and Chicago Sandy got to sit in for a few songs too. After the concert, we dropped Sally off and had a cocktail with Sally, Chicki and Barry. We are glad to be back in the Conch Republic.
