By Mrs. Renhart from Lucy Burdette's Key West food critic mysteries
I have to admit it, I'm a little bit lonely. Even though I thought moving to Key West and living on a houseboat would make all the difference. Doesn't it sound like a fairy tale? Oh for sure, getting Schnootie the schnauzer has helped a lot. But my husband isn't what you call chatty. Or even much fun.
Oh let's face it, he's a good provider but a great, big grump.
|Houseboat Row by Karen Beauprie|
And instead of looking tired and haggard, Miss Gloria seems to really enjoy the company. And my gosh, the food that comes out of that tiny little kitchen. All the people they have over, you'd think they'd invite the neighbors once in while, wouldn't you?
Miss Gloria has a new job too, as a guide in the cemetery. And so those crazy cats have a lot more time alone, and I swear they torment my poor Schnootie every chance they get. And I swear I even saw a little white kitten on their houseboat. And is it possible there was a man skulking in one of the back rooms, too? How many people and animals can they cram into that little space?
I swear I'm going to keep my eye on things and if they get out of control, well, I'll just have to say something.
The question is to whom?
