Full of Beans Chapter 23-24

Pork Chop and the Soldano family live on Ashe Street. I looked and looked for a house that had something like a lunch counter out front but didn't find one. We didn't walk the whole street, however, so maybe we just missed it. Here are some houses on Ashe Street that aren't too far form Curry Lane. 

Robert Frost really is a famous American Poet who did visit Key West. 

Ernest Hemingway really is a famous American author who did live in Key West. 

One of the things Mr. Stone wants to bring in to Key West is art shows and art galleries. Today Key West has many art galleries as you can see on this map. 

Mr. Stone was handing out pamphlets called "Hospitality Hints for the Key West Resident." This website gives a short clip from a movie made in 1938 about how Key West turned itself around in 1934 and 1935. One interesting thing: The movie shows Boy Scouts handing out the pamphlets. I wonder ... do you think Beans, Pork Chop, Ira, and Kermit were ever Boy Scouts?
