    At our favorite, clothing optional gay guest house. Right on Duval street in Old Town, the main ‘drag’.

    My guy needs a break after this Trump mess. Hell, **I** need a break, too.

    But it has to wait until October, if we can hold out that long, assuming the coronavirus subsides. I wish it could be sooner. And if there isn’t a second virus wave in the Fall as some are predicting.

    But if that second wave happens the hotel assures me a cancellation will be without penalty, no cost. A good friend of ours may accompany us, have the room above us in this duplex suite we usually take. Can you believe they’ll only charge an additional $25 a day for the additional guest in our suite? In Key West!

    Here’s their website, fi you wanna check them out for a future visit:

    And here’s our usual suite. Not luxurious, what I call “Key West Ramshackle”, preserving the original flavor of Key West. Choose a big hotel chain if you like. That’s no different than if you were staying in Idaho, or Ohio, or anywhere but Key West. I like the rough edges that remind me of where I am.

    They call those steep stairs to the second floor a “Captain’s ladder”. Somewhat devious way they explain how they managed to fit a second-floor loft in there. But it works. Besides the double glass doors to the balcony, there’s also a back door to the atrium gym, not badly equipped, with further access to the sundeck, pool & garden bar. I usually keep my bicycle in that back hall by the back door.

    Another issue will be what places are still open in Key West. We just learned our most favorite restaurant, ‘Michael’s’, has shut down permanently. We know the husband & wife owners.

    She rode in our SMART Ride for HIV/AIDS. He gave my hubby a tour of his kitchen, shared some of his recipes, always comped us a bottle of wine or dessert when we ate there.

    F**K!!! Another place gone. I wonder how many others will remain, if we’re able to return to Key West in October? And not just a concern over our own selfish interests, but for the owners and their employees who have been hurt by this. DAMN YOU Donald Trump, for your narcissistic incompetence, DAMN YOU!!!

    It's not Trump. It's the morons who supported him. And support him.

    Yeah, we have to put up with them daily. Including on RJ, that used to be rather nice, with lots of intelligent guys. Now it’s infested with moronic Trump Trolls, from who-knows-where. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I do damn them as well. Their culpability in this, which may have been a mix of classic communist beauractic bungling, and government coverup, is very real.

    At the same time, Trump had lots of warnings from our (still great despite Trump's purges) intelligence services. Warnings he both refused to hear and deliberately ignored (Trunmp’s notorious for not reading the briefings he’s given), because they did not support his reelection strategy.

    With Trump only 1 thing is paramount, all-important: himself. And that’s why the United States is where we are today, when other countries have done better. The most COVID-19 cases in the world, and the most deaths of any country. Even surpassing China.

    Michael's closed last July. Explain the relationship to Trump.

    I just read a topic here that you posted about the same thing. Why are you creating so many topics about your vacation trip?

    And as I wrote in the other topic, what does a vacation in Key West have to do with President Trump????
