In our new place~~

Greetings and salutations from Sion Farms, St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands~! The rain forecast, sadly was dead on the money – and it pi$$ed and poured almost all of the day today – but I can happily say we are now in our new place — Got a little more moving around space….. only 1 bedroom 1 bath, so the Queen will have to go back to sharing ‘potty’ space with me for a little bit – but this is just a means to an end…. until we get the space we’re waiting for…… trying to stay positive about the fact we’ll finally get what we really want. But hey – we’re happily and comfortably retired, we’re living on St. Croix and doing pretty much whatever we feel like doing – whenever we feel like doing it….. so we’re there~!! It’s only gonna get better so when our friends and family come to see us — we’ll be able to accommodate them in proper fashion.  🙂

No internet here, but I got schooled today by a young man at an electronics store (who I later found out didn’t even work there) about this handle little item called a hot spot on my phone~!  who knew?!?!?     Yea, yea, yea, I know,   I was probably the last dinosaur on the planet that didn’t know about hot spots~! [insert more eye rolling]    But that’s how I’m able to get this out tonight. We made a trip to the local AT&T store — but they had already locked the doors (an hour before closing time)….. turns out when they have as many people as they can process before closing time – they just lock the doors and you have to come back later — Apparently here on the island – anybody that handles anything to do with Internet or Television service is still VERY busy…… so we’ll be back at 08:30 tomorrow when they open, because as I also learned….. streaming stuff uses up a lot of data (sound plumb tech savvy now don’t I ??)  😉    Anyhow – I have to make sure I have a big enough data plan for my hot spot and streaming and such as I do know that if you go over your data plan – it gets very expensive – very quick…..

By the time we got ran off from the AT&T store, stopped and bought a small TV, stopped and bought a bottle of hooch, stopped and got a bit to eat – it was dark and still raining – so no new pictures for tonight. Not sure if my hot spot internet is strong enough to let me load pictures or not – but it seems like it is actually a little better than the last place we were in – so we’ll see. Plus I might get even more educated tomorrow at the AT&T store [if I can get in].

Thankx for checking in….. Good Night ya’ll~!

(Slowly getting better – cough is still there, not as hard or persistent – but hanging on)

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~!!!! ;-)
