Almost outta here…..

Tomorrow will be our last full day on the island of Curacao. We have definitely had a good time, but we both are ready to move on. Started the day off with a big breakfast (trying to get the fridge emptied out before we take off) – with a full belly and some serious looking clouds floating around, we just lounged today. I think a whole lot of SCUBA diving in a short time caught up with me too and I was perfectly fine with doing absolutely nothing. Got caught up on a couple of bills that needed paid, made sure everything was in order for our upcoming travel and did dang little else.

Mid afternoon rolled around with intermittent rain showers and we both decided we were getting hungry. Just so happened we had two nice big steaks and one big Lobster tail in said fridge, that needed to be eaten. I fired up the grill, sautéed some onions, and had a little veggie mix I throwed on for good measure, along with the steaks (ribeye’s). My Bride said she wanted to contribute, so she made the Lobster on the stove along with some [frozen] corn-on-the cob. Sounded like the perfect meal to wrap up a really good day, which it was – wonderful! Well, except for the frozen corn-on-the-cob. It tasted like, well, frozen corn-on-the-cob. I never have figured out how to freeze corn and make it taste good when it’s cooked (although I can get close if I do it on the grill, but my Queen don’t like it off of the grill). We are going out to our new favorite restaurant tomorrow night for more smoked salmon and crab salad as a farewell to the island for us. Steaks finished up just about the time the Lobster and corn was ready – and we sat down to watch a pretty sunset, enjoy the meal and the bliss that goes with that environment. Now I’m sharing it with you. Not going to rattle on much more, because that’s about the extent of our day.

I will leave you with another bit of wisdom that my Dear Old Dad passed on to me. It came to me right after I inhaled a puff of pepper courtesy of a small wind gust and I had a sneezing fit.

“I snozed a sneeze into the air.
It fell to earth,
I know not where~!
But very stern, were the looks of those.
In that vicinity, that I snoze”

Love my Dad – he had a million of ’em~~  😉

Gott beschütze dich

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~!!!! ;-)
