Bloody Mary morning…….

We both actually got a decent nights sleep last night for the first time in about a week and got up feeling without feeling like we had been run over by a bus. We had our coffee and decided we needed to go out for breakfast. One of the bartenders at Blues Backyard BBQ had told us about a place his girlfriend works at and they have the best biscuits and gravy on the island~! That was all I needed to hear~! Love me some biscuits and gravy~!! So we jumped into the bus and away we went. Actually drove straight to the place. That’s how I know we’ve been here for a bit now – getting less lost 😉  Tiny little place called the Toast Diner….. managed to grab the last 2 seats at the counter and sat down. Turns out they specialize in Bloody Mary’s – they even give you a card to fill out, so you can “build your own” by  marking off the booze and extra ingredients you want. I ordered celery, tomato and shrimp as my extra’s….. wow~! Shrimp was amazing~! (SSsshhh – even better than mine) I’m gonna have to go back – just for an order of the shrimp. I ordered the biscuits and gravy with a couple of over medium eggs thrown on the top just for good measure. My Queen opted for a conventional breakfast plate. Order came up in fairly good time and was wonderfully delicious~! Course, any meal you don’t have to cook yourself – is always fairly decent.  Was it the best biscuits and gravy I ever had – Nope (mine are MUCH better) – Were they best I have had on the island ? Absolutely (there again, they were the ONLY biscuits and gravy I’ve had on the island) – but still very tasty~! I apparently inhaled my breakfast because my bride wasn’t even half way through hers – and I was still hungry – so I ordered an egg, sausage and cheese biscuit – it came out and was also very tasty~! We will definitely be going back there~!

Finally left there and wandered around the boardwalk area moseying in and out of the tourist shops. Angie was looking for a specific cut tank top. 5 stores later, finally found 1 she liked. Headed back to the apartment (owner calls it a condo – but, no – it be an apartment. I think they call it a condo so they can charge more) – just got in, checked mail and decided to run out to a local car dealership. The term on the bus is about to run out and I either need to extend it or buy a vehicle. I decided it will save me a ton of money in the long run just to go ahead and buy one now – even though I don’t have a ‘permanent’ address yet – I’ll figure those logistics out later. So we are now in the market for a vehicle. I’m wanting to get a small Jeep – but dang those dudes are expensive, so we’ll have to see what pops up. I figure I can rent the bus to use when we have kids and Grandkids in.

The rest of the day was spent doodling and doing a whole bunch of nothing – kind of a great way to wind up a Bloody Mary morning~~

Thankx for checking in~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
