First there was Invest 99L, which is now Tropical Depression Nine. Was it going to become a herricane? We were worried Wednesday through Friday last week and we helped Dad herd things into the sheds, so there was nothing for the wind to pick up. Well, the center is to the south of us and isn't a tropical storm yet. So a big sigh of relief.
We have been reading a lot about Zika in the newspaper. There have been two cases reported in the Keys and there have been a lot of cases reported in Florida. Zika is not a new disease, it was first discovered way back in 1947 in the Zika Forrest in Uganda. .
Next we read in the paper about a four-foot American Crocodile off one of the sea walls in Key West. Then he heard there are other crocodiles in the Keys. Dad is thankful neither of like swimming in water. He doesn't expect to run into any crocodiles during our walks. He sure wish they all had a ticking clock, like the one in the Peter Pan.
