Being sick in the Caribbean……

Somewhere in my brain, although not fully processed…. I always thought, it wouldn’t be as bad to be sick while you’re in the Caribbean. I was wrong. Don’t misunderstand me – it’s nice to have swaying palm trees and that gorgeous blue water to look at…. and the constantly warm sunny weather – versus cold, wet nasty everything dead weather…. but being sick here still sucks as bad here as it did in Indiana……. I ain’t gonna go into another tale of snot and coughing – I think you got the gist of it last night.

On-line and on the phone most of the day today again with prospective house renters and realtors. Did get one hit that sounds mighty intriguing, just waiting to see if we can get a showing, not much, but better than nothing~!

In the meantime, I feel like a$$ and not in the mood to ramble tonight — so I’m gonna try and load the handful of pictures that didn’t make it last night and a couple I snapped off of our patio today.  Thankx for stopping in…..

You can’t direct the wind, but you can adjust your sails.

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~!!!! ;-)

  2. Hi Vera,
    Thank you for the note — We are both mending well. My cough is just about completely gone – but Angie’s is still hanging on. (I tend to be a bit more diligent about taking medicine) 😉
    I was never a Basketball fan, even in school, it just never appealed to me. Glad you enjoy it though. Good suggestion about Amazon, but our internet is so slow here — we can’t get anything to stream. Maybe the next place will be a little better. Right now I’m really lucky to even get on here and get a couple of pictures to load.
    The pictures of the water do not do the water justice. You have to see it with your own eyes to appreciate the true beauty of that water. I didn’t think it was possible to have that many shades of blue. I see it a dozen times a day and it just almost takes my breath away every time I see it.
    Glad you’re still checking in on us – and you don’t have to worry about when you write a comment on the blog – I get a regular email that tells me I have a comment waiting.
    Hope you didn’t get too much ice there and that you are well. Take care~~
