Rhythm’s at Rainbow Beach……..

Well, my little AT&T hot spot is still officially dead, but the hotspot on my phone is trying to step up and keep me on line — so I’m gonna try and get something up here while it seems to be working.

My Queen and I journeyed out to a local place about 20 minutes from us called Rhythm’s — a small beach bar located on Rainbow beach. Not sure yet how the beach got it’s name, but looking forward to finding out. A local R&B band was scheduled for tonight. We had heard them before at Blues Backyard BBQ – and my Queen wanted to hear them again. The boys were on point tonight, sounding really good. We sat and had drinks and listened to them, all the while watching the crowd there at the bar. Good heavens, you can’t believe the likes of people there, tall, short, black, white, brown, skinny, not so skinny, lesbians, gay’s, Jamaican, Puerto Rican, Latino, Japanese, Americans…… the wildest mix of  human kind you would ever want to lay eyes on….. in every stage of dress, from bikini clad to full blown dressed up……. it was quite an experience, to sit and watch that throng of humanity. There was every type of hand shake, to hugs, fist bumps, waving…. constantly… all those people, drinking, eating, listening to music having a wonderful time. We were there over 3 hours and I did not see one instance of hostility or aggression anywhere in that multitude of different people. Just people enjoying each others company and getting along. It does the soul good to see that….. I hope I get to see it again and again and again and again………. The whole time having a spectacular sunset going on in the background~! Maybe that was the reason for such a peaceful event….. don’t know – but sure hope it stays that way.

I’m gonna stop here and see if I can get some pictures to load…… sorry I missed you last night, but we were completely off of the grid….. have a good evening and thankx for stopping in~!

I GOTTA try this – at least once~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
