A new day — a new island :-)

Wasn’t going to post today, just because I’m tired from a long day….. booze may be a bit of a factor as well. We were up at the crack of dawn…. actually a smidge before it, to get ready to move to our next hang out…. and here we be – on the island of Bonaire~! Initial reaction — it seems a much more well cared for island than Curacao…. mostly flat – keep a couple of big hills I saw on approach to the island. Have ventured out for lunch and some groceries. Only have the one store to base on right now, but prices seem to be considerably higher than Curacao, but no where near as bad as Grand Cayman…… more as we buy a little bit more.

Made it to our new abode… nice place, but believe there was some poetic licensing done with pictures of the place. A little bit run down and we hesitated nary a second to advise the local person of things that needed fixed. They were on it, to our satisfaction in setting out to get our concerns corrected. Not all done yet – but much better than when we arrived. We’ll see what the next day or so brings……….. Looks to be a ton of things to do here and can’t wait to get out and check them out….

Gonna leave it at that for now (tired and half hammered as it were)….. I am going to try and load my personal SCUBA video on here….. I loaded the commercial version on FB and hope to get the personal one on  here for you all…..

That’s what I thought – this POS web site won’t let me load MY  video….. will try again tomorrow when I’m less tired and less snockered…..

Good night ya’ll…..

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~!!!! ;-)
