Killing time…….

Wow – been retired 15 days now …. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet. I am starting to realize that I’m getting bored as hell, especially knowing there is a beautiful island in the Caribbean that I could be exploring. Can’t wait to scope out all the different dive sites. I want to learn to dive for lobsters. I want to be able to stop and check out all the local bars and places I never had the time to check out when we were vacationing. Getting to know the folks that run those places. Trying the local cuisine and understanding the customs and rituals that go along with living a life in paradise.
C’mon Phil — you gotta get this place sold for us~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
