Coughing and snot…..

Woke to the day today excited about possibly getting to go look at a couple of potential homes for us~!! Boy was that a punch to the gut….. spent the day being shot down by realtors, coughing and blowing noses. My Queen has finally admitted that she thinks she has come down with something….. and to parlay it – just in the last couple of hours, MY throat is starting to burn and I’m starting to cough. Dammit Emmit.  I thought it was sweet though earlier,  that she put ‘her’ water bottle in a secluded spot in the fridge (so we wouldn’t spread germs) – but then walks over and gives me a kiss good night…..  😉

Didn’t do a lot today- looked at a bunch of places [that we didn’t like] on-line, coughed, sneezed – looked at more places that we did like – but way to friggin’ expensive, coughed and sneezed some more. Did managed to get the place we’re staying at extended for a while – so at least we don’t have to sleep in the bus. So technically did get something done today.

About 2:00 0’clock – both agreed we were hungry since we didn’t feel like eating all day….. so we jumped in the bus and ran up to our local Mickey D’s…… definitely on island time there….. 18 minutes to get through the drive through.. Woo-Hooo~! But – we had a wonderfully delicious meal that we didn’t have to cook and we’re back in our condo in under 6 minutes…. so I could wash down my Double-Quarter pounder with cheese with an ice cold beer~  Yay~!

When my Queen finally admitted she was coming down with something – she asked me to run to the store and ‘get some stuff’…… so away I went. We are now well stocked to combat what ever type of cough or sniffle we have managed to get, so should be back on our feet and out traveling again in no time~!

I did get to see what I was told was the International Space Station pass by,  I don’t know if that what is actually was – but whatever it was, it was movin~!

Didn’t get to take any pictures today, but still have a bunch from yesterday that I didn’t put up – so here ya go~!

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

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~!!!! ;-)
