Yes,folks we have a our very own tiny “The Conch Republic Yellow Pages and Business White Pages for Key West and the Lower Keys. The print is in gray ink and so small you need a magnifier glass to see it. Unless of course you have a young child close by who has great eyesight.
I think I will make a door stopper out of it. Then again it’s so small, maybe I will just use the pages to clean the bathroom mirror after showering.
I will find some use for it :)
I have been beating my head against the wall all morning. Looking for numbers and finally finding them only to hear “We’re sorry, this number is no longer in service.” Thinking I must have dialed wrong or possibly written the number down wrong, I redialed. Same results. Hearing that horrid sound in my ear whining or the screaming Fax machines persons leave on…URGG! is so annoying and frustrating.
Then resorting to a call too 411 that they will charge me for. Then having them give me the exact numbers that are longer in service. The annoying thing about this, these are important numbers having too do with government offices, health clinics, etc, etc.
Immediately calling 411 back and demanding credit for a wrong number.
Someone needs to redo the Key West Yellow Pages.
One listing says “Care Center for Metal Health”…Really!!!
Can we say TYPO ?
Then of course you have the numbers that do answer. You hear that lovely elevator music in the background that is either obnoxious or deafening…

I just said the heck with this, and rode to the places I was trying too connect too. It is a 2 x 4 Island. Oh and I filled my moped up (Cost $4.17 ) Price of a gallon of gas.
When I arrived everyone was out to lunch or had taken the day off.
It is a gorgeous, palms swaying day out, a sunny, warm 79 °.
At any rate I did accomplish today what I planned doing yesterday. It was so nice out I took the day off.
Seemed like a good day to feed the ducks.
