NOVEMBER 16 THRU NOVEMBER 22 (ETC.), 2018 IN KEY WEST WITH LYNDA!!!

HAPPY NOV.16 BIRTHDAY TO….MICHAEL PELKEY…ELLEN CARON … DARLA SNYDER … ROBYN WHITEHEAD … RICK RAMSEY… ASHLEY HOOVER … MATT DOMSKI….     HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO…. MEGAN & MICHAEL BEHMKE!!!!

WE SAY GOODBYE!  It is always sad to know of people we love in Key West who are leaving for other places and adventures!  Just recently found out that Karen and John Hammond have left Key West and have moved to California.  They are a wonderful and charming couple and will be deeply missed.  Also, Jean Zeman just departed Key West for The Villages, FL… Hoping they will all have a wonderful new life in their new environment, and may they visit Key West time and time again! 

SUCH SADNESS!!… Key West has this reputation for being such a fun-loving town… When I first started coming here in 1985 I found it to be a healing place.  If I was down in the dumps, a visit to Key West would definitely heal my aching heart and when I would return back to our up-North home, I found it easier to cope. Yet with all the joy and happiness that Key West represents, there is also the reality of sadness lurking behind the laughter.  I really felt as if the rug was pulled out from under me on Sunday, Nov. 10, when within a few minutes I found out about the passing of two persons I truly cared about.  I was entering Fausto’s when I ran into a friend who looked at me sadly and conveyed her sorrow about my losing a friend.  Not knowing what she was referring to, I nearly fell to the ground when she said, “Oh Lynda, I assumed you knew that Bill Welch died on Nov. 8.”  Bill Welch has been a very dear and special friend for many years… a wonderful man… kind, giving, thoughtful, handsome, and a superb artist….as good a man as I have ever known.  I knew he had been battling cancer for a while, but he was always so upbeat, positive, and optimistic.  When he last visited Key West he was doing so well, and he looked like a million bucks…. He was happy and joyful to be back in Key West surrounded by his many friends.  Yet, things obviously were not going well of late. His illness was once again rearing its ugly head… and to make things worse, he got pneumonia.  The ambulance was transferring him from one hospital to another…. And en route, he suffered a heart attack and died.  It is all so sad!!!…(Back to the story..) Weak in the knees,  I entered the store, and was in the check out line… mind you, visibly upset…. And the fellow in front of me, whom I knew, asked me what was wrong.  I said, I am just in shock having heard that Bill had died…. And  then he said, ‘And isn’t it awful about the death of Barbara Hoffmen.”  I did NOT know about Barbara, whom we always called ‘Barbara Please’ as she was the Queen of the Crystal Room who seated attendees of at the Crystal Room Shows at Lateda…. We would always call to her, ‘Barbara PLEASE find us a great table!’  She moved away several years ago but we continued to keep in touch and loved reading my blog.  She was a unique and special gal. So folks…. Two more Key West Friends have departed and their memory will forever linger on in our hearts.  (Let me know if you want addresses to send messages of sympathy to next of kin.) 

ROCK SOLOMON’S FATHER PASSES AWAY… Local jazz singer and actor, and my friend, Rock Solomon, lost his beloved father, Ronnie Pierce, Seattle Jazz Legend… on Oct. 28, 2018.  You can send Rock messages of condolence at:

Rock Solomon   1100 A  Truman Ave., Key West, FL.  Rock has started a fund to create an exhibit of all 7.5 decades of music history to honor his Father…. Check out www.JazzLegacyFund.com.  You can go online to read more about Ronnie Pierce.. a true Jazz Legend who played with the greats. 

“THE GOOD COP” ON NETFLIX,….Hope you are all loving THE GOOD COP….The premier was SEPTEMBER 21….on NETFLIX…. Writer and Executive Producer of this show, HY CONRAD (he of Monk and White Collar fame) … (and also very special friend and Key West resident)… is excited about this new show that is getting LOTS of buzz!  ALL ten episodes of the first season are available… and I encourage all to ‘BINGE WATCH’ the series… assuring that Netflix will renew the show quickly!!!  THE GOOD COP is a new Dramedy… This show stars Tony Danza  as a disgraced NY police officer who never followed ‘the rules’…. And Josh Groban as his son, Tony Jr., earnest  and obsessively honest detective who makes a point to ALWAYS follow the rules.  Father Tony, returns home to live with his son… and of course, they form a most unlikely team.  THIS IS TRULY MUST SEE TV!  To see a 2 minute trailer on THE GOOD COP, please go to…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqZxZ20NrNc.  By the way…. Readers, Barbara McConagha, ande Karen Leonard both emailed me to thank me for recommending this show…. And they are both enjoying it!!!!

JIM HALL…SICK BAY….. Very dear friend, JIM HALL, recently endured an Ischemic stroke at his home in Virginia Beach.  He is convalescing in the hospital and going through some therapy… and we are all behind him 150% and are hoping he will be all well and good as new before long.  You can send Jim cards and messages of support to him at his home at 208 53rd St.   Virginia Beach, VA 23451.  You can email him at Dietcoke53@aol.com.  You can text him at 757-285-7544.  I KNOW he would love to hear from you, and I am a firm believer that people heal more quickly when they feel love and support from friends and family.  Also… please keep caregiver, Billy Cartledge in your prayers and thoughts as he administers his special brand of TLC to his husband, Jim!!!!  We love and miss them both.

*******PLEASE BECOME A MEMBER OF THE WATERFRONT PLAYHOUSE!!!  Before long ‘the 2018-19 Season’ in KW will begin again.  As a proud Board Member of the Waterfront Playhouse for 13 years, I am hoping that you will take the time to read the following.   Our beloved Waterfront Playhouse had some major setbacks and challenges this past year.  Hurricane Irma had a huge negative impact on the tourist populations coming to KW and dollars spent at the Theater.   Major funding and grant challenges that we had counted on for years, were not there last season.  But we persevered and presented yet another excellent Theater Season. In addition, we were confronted with the retirement of our wonderful artistic director of 17 years, Danny Weathers.  The good news was that our new artistic director, Tom Thayer, was already employed by The WP as Business & Box Office Mgr.  As fate would have it, Tom had run a Theater in Tennessee for 33 years,  and he was able to seamlessly move into the AD spot. Of course that meant we needed a new Business Mgr., Box office Mgr…. and a Marketing Director.  Then we lost our House Mgr. who also retired.  At first it was a tad overwhelming, but we were able find quality people to assume each of those positions.  Behind the scenes, we lost several key board members.. but after a search we have 9 fabulous new Board Members and we are thrilled!  As you can see, we are on the threshold of new exciting beginnings.  In spite of any past challenges, we all know that THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!!  Theaters aren’t able to rely on Ticket Sales alone to keep them going…that is only a tiny part of it.  In order to continue to present the kind of quality theater you have come to expect from us, we need YOU to help!  How can I help? you ask….If you are already a MEMBER of the Waterfront Playhouse Family, I ask that you consider deepening your commitment financially by becoming a member at a higher level than you had before.  Each level provides special perks and privileges….  BUT, the important thing is to look at it as not so much as ‘what you can get out of your membership’ but what you are giving and doing to provide Key West with the BEST Theater experience possible!  If you have Never been a Member of the Waterfront Playhouse before…. I hope you will realize that we NEED YOUR HELP and support more than ever!…now right NOW!  You can go online to www.waterfrontplayhouse.org or call 305-294-5015 to order your membership….and you can see the Breakdown of what each Level of Membership provides.  You will be helping us beyond words…. To recover from Hurricane Irma, declining state funding and increasing costs!!!  Thank you so much for your support of the Waterfront Playhouse and LIVE Theater in Paradise!!!

                                       *** THE SCORPIO PERSONALITY…OCTOBER 23 THROUGH NOVEMBER 22 ***

 

      I am starting this by saying that some of my best friends are Scorpios….as well as my very best friend, my dear husband Bob!  They are an amazing group….terrific company and possess a fantastic sense of humor.  That being said, Scorpios view life in a very emotional and intense way….and they find it very difficult to express profound feelings that they have.  Scorpios keep their deep feelings buried under the surface.  They have an innate need for privacy and secrecy making them reluctant to let people know how they feel.  This sign is often viewed as being obsessive and it is true that a Scorpio takes things quite seriously.  They are happiest when they are able to concentrate their energies in particular directions, because they need to feel emotionally involved in everything they do.  Otherwise life loses its meaning and purpose.  Once a Scorpio has made up their mind about something, it is very hard to persuade them to change it.  They often have fixed ideas about all sorts of things and can take a very hard line over such topics as capital punishment  and imprisonment.   Despite a Scorpio’s natural loyalty, if you push them too far or double cross them in some way, they will never forget it and they will never forgive you.  They will probably give you the cold shoulder  to exact their revenge.  It is wise not to get on the wrong side of a Scorpio!  A Scorpio’s magnetic charm and powerful personality attract many fans.  People love the fact that ‘still waters run deep’….and when a Scorpio is silent, everyone wonders what they are thinking and go to great lengths to find out.  They know there is lots more going on under the surface than the Scorpio will reveal.

Love is an area that can cause problems for Scorpios as they take it so seriously.  There is nothing superficial about members of this sign, and as a result they need relationships that are deep and satisfying.  One night stand and brief flirtations quickly lose their charm…the Scorpio is looking for something more significant than that, and when they find it they will channel all their energies into it.  They do demand a great deal from their partner, with love and loyalty at the top of the list.  One big Scorpio problem is jealousy and another is possessiveness.  If a Scorpio has been hurt in the past, it can be very hard for him to resolve these issues.  Sex and Scorpio go together like bread and butter.  They place  such great importance on sex because it is such a good way for them to express their feelings.  The best signs for a Scorpio are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo another Scorpio and Leo. 

What a Scorpio does for a living must have meaning and purpose, needing to feel emotionally involved in their career.  Otherwise they will feel unhappy and dissatisfied.  They must believe their work is meaningful…nothing demeaning or boring for them!  They will pour all their energies into their work wanting to do something  that provides endless interest and stimulation.

Scorpios also love to know what’s going on…so they are the eyes and ears enjoying sharing the latest gossip and intrigue.  It is important for them to get on well with their colleagues and that they work in a comfortable atmosphere.  They need positions of power, even though it may be minor…..the thought that everyone else has control but them is devastating!  Scorpios are attracted to law, science, detective work, medicine, research and the like.  They also get great satisfaction from working in the wine trade…especially if they can attend lots of wine tastings.  Scorpios need more money than most…as financial security is very important to them….they also enjoy the power that comes with money.  Living comfortably is of utmost important to the
Scorpio…..In their hearts they know they should have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth…. And if they were not to the manor born, they will do everything in their power to achieve that status symbol.  Investing and accumulating are important to the Scorpio…they are canny investors and love playing the stock market.

WE LOVE OUR MARVELOUS SCORPIO FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS!!!!!
