Woo-hOO it’s Friday….

You know, it’s funny…. not that long ago – I couldn’t wait to say those words….. and now – I have to look at my phone or a calendar to know what day it is…. This retirement stuff is awesome~!  Kinda warps how you have to manage your world though, when most of that world is a working world….. but I’ll adapt  😉

Went and looked at the house on the hill that we previewed yesterday….. OMG – you talk about poetic licensing with a camera….. we looked at it on line and it looked really nice….. but son, when we walked into that place…..wow…… if I had been blindfolded and taken out there – I would have no idea it was the same place. Cracks all over the place, a couple of pieces of ratty furniture, hardly anything in the kitchen, old antiquated ceiling fans (and only 2 of them worked) no A/C, no cable or internet…… backyard looked like a jungle….. pool needs a new liner but it should be here by the end of the month……AND they wanted $3000 a month for it…….It’s amazing what greed does to some of these people out here. Sad part is – they’ll probably get it….. but it ain’t gonna be from us~!

Second place we looked at is in a primo location — killer views, nice little yard, nicer fenced in pool and it’s well within our price range…… we couldn’t get in to see the inside because it is still occupied but realtor thinks it might become vacant fairly soon – we are crossing our fingers really hard we can at least get into see it….. Right now it has FEMA people in it and realtor says they come and go as they please – so it’s gonna have to be a bad case of hurry up and wait…….

Realtor was trying to get us into a 3rd place to look at – so we told her we would stop and have a drink while we waited on her (yes – the second place is really close to Blues backyard BBQ)….. so we stopped for a drink….. I had skipped breakfast and was starving – and that place always smells so good….. that I got me a BBQ Brisket sammich. It was every bit as wonderful as the first one I ever had there.  MMM-Good~! Real Good~!! Sat and had a couple more drinks and never heard back from realtor – so we headed to mid-island to the AT&T store…. our little ‘Hot Spot’ is acting like it’s trying to die on us (I think maybe that was part of the problem last night)  Waited about an hour and half to get waited on – just to be told – they  cannot exchange it (been over 14 days) and that I would have to send it in for a new one…… Ain’t that some crap – so I guess we’ll be stuck with ‘iffy’ internet for a bit …….

Left there, stopped by the store for a couple of things and then eased our way back up the mountain……. I’m gonna see if I can get last night’s pictures to load for you – weirdly, I did not take a single picture today – even the one of the killer view…., I must be slippin’……. Dammit Emmit~!

Thankx for stoppin’ in~!

MMM-mmmm Good~!

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~!!!! ;-)
