Greetings from the Hill, another splendid day if not....
perfect, ideal, 60% humidity makes an oldman smile.
Quiet streets with ambling couples enjoying a morning
stroll, the seniors on their midwinter break that makes
the realtors drool, the current breed of parasites who
exploit the island charm.
But who can waste the mind and imagination on the greedy
when there are gardens to trim, plants to water, cats to feed,
floors to sweep and windows to clean.
The oldwoman on top of the Hill informed me that house
values are being based on the number of windows and
the age of the glass, and of course pinus elliotti densa,
if any original wood remains in the structures.....
The wood butchers now remove all the socalled Dade
County pine for custom finishwork.....try and buy it..
one hundred dollars a foot for replacement columns.
Enough of the high price of paradise, the oldman picks
his own bananas and papayas, smokes Buglers, andddd
a fourpak of Miller pints at Faustos is three bucks.
The rest is a busride to Albertsons.
Time for lunch on the balcony and that from the Hill.
