2 months and still waiting………..

Well crap… as I sit here and ponder what can only be the life I have dreamed of most of my working life, I am trying not to get discouraged. It’s hard not to do. As the sounds of freedom ring loudly in the air today, celebrating the freedom of this great country, the strings of my new freedom (retirement) are being pulled to almost their limits waiting to start the next chapter of my life. Guess for the time being, I don’t have any other choice than to hurry up and wait. In the meantime – Happy Fourth of July~!

Until the next round, take the time to appreciate the freedom you have today and the time to appreciate all who made that possible. God bless the U.S.A.

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~!!!! ;-)
