Shopping day………

Spent the bulk of the day today spending money like we had it……. Started with the AT & T store — wound up buying a portable hotspot and was assured, with the right data plan – we would have no more internet worries so we jumped on it, ran our plan back up to an obscene amount it used to be and left ‘secure’ in the knowledge we would able to stay in touch with the rest of the world. Well, our little piece of the world anyways. Left there and drove out to the big Kmart on the West end of the island – and picked up a bunch of household stuff to make our lives in our new little nest a bit more homelike and enjoyable. Loaded everything into the bus and headed back to the middle of the island to unload all of our stuff. Stopped at the local Cinema that has a small restaurant/deli thing inside for a bite to eat — That turned out to be not a good idea….. I think those folks better stick to making popcorn. Got everything finally hauled back to the apartment, tested and put away and lit back out for groceries. Ya gotta eat…… An hour in that store and finally back to the apartment for the evening…… Hooked up my new super-duper hot spot with anticipation of screaming around on the internet……… there was some screaming – but it wasn’t blazing internet speed……… Hooked up our new little TV – I thought while at least we’ll finally have TV – Uh – no. Dammit Emmit~!

Not going to bore you with a bunch of the details….. but to get about anything to work worth a crap – I have to use my phone hot spot…… now ain’t that a kick in the shorts – but at least we can now stream from my Amazon Prime account and actually get to watch some movies. We wound up watching Megan Leavy — if you have not seen it- I highly recommend it. Based on a true story.

My Queen, feeling queasy from that Cinema sammich has already wondered off to bed. As soon as I get this finished… I’m gonna shower and shave and head that way as well. Been a big day for both of us. Not sure what tomorrow brings…..

Thankx for checking in………… good night ya’ll~!!

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.

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~!!!! ;-)
