Godammit Emmitt…

“I said to my son Emmitt ….. Godammit Emmitt~!” — another saying my Dad was fond of. Not sure where it came from but Dad used it a lot. Find it to be a great saying for times of exasperation.
We are doing everything we can think of to sell this house. We have added an $1000 “agent initiative” and also offering $1000 cash for a lead that results in a closing on the house. Kinda funny – we kinda thought the town would pitch in to buy the house just to get us out of town (long story I’ll share later) but no dice.
So here we continue to sit….. pining to head to the land of crystal blue waters,constant warm temperatures and sunshine……waiting….waiting….waiting~

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~!!!! ;-)
