Learning experience today……..

Greetings and salutations O’ readers of this blog….. today was an exploratory kind of day again — I love these days except for the fact I don’t get to take many pictures because I am navigating and piloting the bus….. not knowing your way around (very well) is one thing – but when you have to stay vigilant for potholes – it adds a whole new dimension to driving.  And let me tell you – this place has some serious potholes~!!  We were told about a place that had ‘lots’ of Jeep wranglers on their lot – so away we went….. finally found the place out on the East side…… lots of vehicles and ONE Jeep – and it had been jacked up and blown out to the point where not even I wanted anything to do with it. Got talking to some of the locals while looking over the other inventory – I even looked at a FORD truck)  🙁 which should tell you how desperate we’re getting….. but the locals informed me, this place was notorious about bringing in reclaimed stuff from Florida and Texas, that had hurricane/flood damaged from Hurricane Hugo — buyer beware. Finding a lot of that nonsense – especially on Craigslist…… really miss the good ole days of being able to believe most of what you were told when trying to buy something……..

Didn’t find any vehicles, so made a pit stop at the store for a few essentials and came back to the apartment/condo…… We did hear from a new realtor we have been talking with and she has a showing for us Monday at 11:00~!! Not really part of the island we wanted to be on, but if it checks off the other boxes – we may snag it up — it is well within our budget – so we are excited~! More on that Monday~!

In the meantime – I’m gonna leave it right here and see if I can get some decent pictures loaded for you tonight….. hated to cut out on you last night – but it was past midnight and the ole fat boy was getting tired and frustrated……

Not sure what tomorrow brings…….. so check in again – Thankx for stopping by~~~  (Well – it let me edit ALMOST all of them this time)  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
