Hello Key Biscayne!

For one day there we got to dust out the light jacket from the back of the closet, and it’s made this weather all worth it.

Xmas tree sales at KB Community ChurchSanta's goons put in the work for free.

You know, the Key Biscayne Community Church is selling their trees everyday but don’t wait too long or you’ll end up with something short and sparse. The money goes to some good cause, who knows what, but certainly better than wherever else you’re gonna find a tree.

Just a couple little plugs this week for key rats doing festive stuff. Enjoy the light reading.

Slim pickin'

feelsgudman.jpg Who knows how this stuff happens but some producer somewhere heard about the story of some key rats helping out a family from the Bahamas last year after Hurricane Dorian and now it’s on the Today show. We’ve covered this to death but if you like the national validation enjoy the video. πŸŒ…

Trending We’re back at hovering at around 5% for those covi rates here on the island. That’s keeping with a trend that’s been going on for the past month or so. Across the county things look similar so take care of yourself and others as we ride out this wave. Here’s hoping you didn’t kiss your grandma this past Thanksgiving. 😘

As is tradition, the Key Biscayne Woman's Club has got the best pecans in town. You can usually find 'em at certain stores, but your best bet is to send an email to Freda Levitt or call 305-361-2194 to find out exactly where they'll be. Don't fail to try this Key Biscayne delight (from Georgia).
