Lô¿ôking for places to live…. and a steak~~

Got a LOT accomplished today~! Love it when that happens! Got insurance on our truck….. tried to open a bank account here – but that fell flat because we can’t show proof of residency yet….. Dammit Emmit~!    Got Grand Daughter birthday gift ordered….. got a line on a couple of new places to look at and actually got to look at 3 different possible places to stay~~! Yay~!

First place was nice with a ‘view’ to die for, but the place was awful small…. not counting it out, we moved on to the second place…… nice~! Very, very nice~!!! Equally gorgeous view, ground floor, checks off almost every single box on our list…… on the beach [hate myself I didn’t get a picture of that view], gorgeous pool, nice complex………trouble is, it’s not available for another couple of weeks….. maybe – will have to wait probably until after the weekend for more details on that.  Drove out to a third place….. wasn’t able to go in….. supposed to be 3 bed/2 bath house….. has a nice pool, but vicious deep. It is also located on the side of a very steep hill surrounded by trees and mild jungle with dang little ‘view’.  Going out tomorrow morning to look at the inside of it…. but it is going to have to be mind blowing to change our minds, as we have already kind of made the decision on it. One other place to do a drive by tomorrow – so we’re trying to keep our minds open……. but # 2 today could very easily become our new permanent place – will just have to do the short term thing a little longer…… more details in a day or two.

Being Thursday, my bride knew that at Blues Backyard BBQ it was steak night, and those of you that know my bride, knows how she is with her steaks….. especially since I haven’t been able to do much grilling since we left Curacao… so being really close to Blues – we pulled in and moseyed on up to the bar – only to find our drinks already made and sitting there when we walked up……. yeah, maybe we have been spending a lot of time there   😉  Angie had her steak and I had a couple of hot dogs….. pickle, onion and a little mustard….. just good ole standard issue hot dogs – and they were wonderful~!  Angie had her steak with extra sautéed onions and halfway through complained she was full…… but somehow managed to  polish off the entire steak and onions  😉  We stayed and had drinks and listened to the local entertainment – A guy who thought he was a whole lot better than he actually was. His side kick had a nice voice – but apparently there is some kind of pi$$ing contest going on between them and he kept her mic turned down low enough you could barely hear her.  We listened to the first set and both agreed, neither of us wanted to hear the second set – so we finished our drinks, bid adieu to the folks at the bar and headed west to our little piece of the mountain.

Back home safe and sound, listening to roosters, dogs and a myriad of other noises out there….. probably gonna hit the showers and crash soon, to be well rest for tomorrow.

Thank you to all for the well wishes concerning my Blue Lights incident…. more locals confirmed today – that I was probably a lot luckier than I realized…. guess that what happens, when you’re half loaded, stupid and just trying to help….. it won’t happen again.

Thankx for stopping in~!

Well sport fans, friends and neighbors……. It’s been just over an hour and still have not got 1 single picture to load….. so going to see if I can get this to post…. Sorry~

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~!!!! ;-)
