Our beautiful Island~~

Spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon today out exploring our new home. Gotta tell ya — we have already seen most of the island, but we managed to find a couple of new roads we hadn’t traveled yet – and let me tell you… them were some roads. We wound up on mountain tops – in peoples driveways a couple of times (hey – it looked like a road) but I just had a ball….. every time I saw a road that disappeared into the wilderness, I took it. The only way to find out what your new island is made of….. what a really¬† great day…. and pictures~~~ boy do I have some pictures for you. I took right at a 100 of them. By the time I weeded out the junk shots, I still had right at 90 shots left. Now if I can get this slower than molasses internet to load some of them, we’ll be off like a herd of turtles~! As we weaved our way around the southern coast and East end of the island – it became readily apparent – we live on a very beautiful island…. wow. I got some pretty nice pictures, but it just don’t do the beauty of this place justice. You’re just gonna have to come see us and hang out for a week so we can take you around and let you see the beauty of this place for yourself. (just let us know when you’re coming though so we can make sure we have space for you in that time slot)

As we worked our way back toward the apartment/condo…. we stopped at a little place called Cheeseburger in Americas Paradise……. I had heard a lot of good things about it, so we stopped in. Neither of us were particularly hungry, so we got a drink and had a couple of smokes while we sipped our drink. The place smelled heavenly, so we will most certainly be back to check out the cuisine….

Moseyed on in toward town. Stopped at a local grocery store for some toilet paper (the job is never finished until the paperwork is done). Headed on back West. As it would have it, we were going past Blues again (go figure, right ?) We both agreed a drink was in order and my Queen indicated she wanted something to eat….. got us a drink and she got a meatball sub…. she wanted ribs (which looked and smell AWESOME…. but they ran out by the time she put her order in. She said the meatball sub was very good…. I opted NOT to eat anything, as bad as I wanted another smoked turkey breast with bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and drizzled with ranch sammich….. so I just drank……. seeing as how we wound up sitting there for about 3 hours….. I probably should have got the sammich…… but – it’s all good…….

They had a band playing there tonight that¬† I was really under impressed with, and I (and apparently most of the people there) were really happy when they quit playing. We finally bid adieu and headed back here…… now all that is left for the day is to see if I can get some of these pictures of our beautiful island to load. I’ll only try to get 15-10of them…. and save the rest for non-picture days….

Thankx for stopping in……… have a good evening~!

Dream as you will live forever, live as you will die today.

Picture you get when you don’t realize it’s still on selfie mode

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~!!!! ;-)
