Islamorada Journal 2010...Days 66, 67

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Highlight of the last two days has been Jeremy's arrival here in Islamorada.

As the shadows lengthened on Friday evening...



We went to Snappers [salt-water fish tank behind bar] and had quite a feast...



That included this desert...



The disappearance of which was closely monitored by a child at the next table [not the one above the index finger in the photo, but the other one. See the nose?]

We were able to catch a bit of the sunset on the way back to the house.

Miami to Seek Selection as Site for 2018 Winter Olympics

At a press conference held today in the Fireside Room of the Miami Beach Hilton, Miami officials announced that the city will seek to become the venue for the Olympic Games for the winter of 2018. Mayor Cole Bottoms said that the city’s effort will be led by former Olympian Ivor Chillblaines who thrilled Miamians by coming in 37th in the downhill at Vancouver in 2010. Ivor will by ably assisted by May B. Frostbitten who, although scheduled to appear in the snowboarding competition in Vancouver, had to sit out that year’s event as she had caught pneumonia while on an ice-fishing trip to Islamorada.

Mayor Bottoms said the full support of all Miamians will be behind the effort to obtain the Winter Olympics. To that end the city is budgeting to supply all citizens of the city with down jackets from LLBean’s, snowshoes from Cabela’s, and snow-moving equipment from Shovels-R-Us. Food concessions will come under the purview of Frazier Burns.

Others on the committee include these former Olympians:

Ima S. Kimo
Joquin Onice
I. Shelby Frosted
Annie von Warm
Gladys Summerout
Bud Imfreezin
Art Tickey
Bjorn Schivrin
Turner Heatup
Umas B. Frigid
Ivanna Hottub
and the famous short-track skater
I. C. Scrotum

“It appears that the fishermen's march on Washington was a huge success.

"There were close to 4,000 fishermen from as far away as California and Alaska and nearby Maryland and Virginia, as well as many other coastal states.”
