421 Simonton Street, Key West, Florida


View Larger Map

We used to live upstairs over this store when I was in the Navy. The entrance was in the center where the indented doors are. You walked through a courtyard and then up some stairs. No air conditioning. Jalousie windows. This was when I was on the USS Peregrine. I am now reading the Alex Rutledge series of detective stories written by Tom Corcoran that take place in Key West. It is fun to read about all the places I used to know and visit.

In this blog post, you have given a wonderful description of your former home. From the detailing itself, we are able to know that it was very beautiful. But the image that you have attached along with the post is not available due to some technical reasons. I feel it would have been better if readers were able to view the image given. I read that, this was your home when you were serving in the navy. I hear that navy persons try to maintain a disciplined lifestyle. They give good importance to habits like cleanliness and punctuality. The same thing is applicable to their family even. I hope this character of the navy parson would have resulted in the cleanliness and tidiness of your home. Another main thing given with great value by the navy person is fitness. They put a control on their diet in order to keep their body healthy and fit. Apart from these activities to maintain the fitness of the body are carried by them. A healthy diet and the exercises will help to gain a healthy mind and body. I hope your daily routine will not be different from any other navy person. I wish that you would have given more details about your navy days. Most of the posts given in your blogs give a lot of data. Some of them will be about your life. Whereas, some others give us the details of general matters. Sometimes it may be about the places to visit. Anyways, I find this blog as an interesting and refreshing one.
