Getting my bride patched up

Started our day off this morning with my bride telling me she thought she needed to go to the clinic. Not knowing where that was exactly at, I looked it up and away we went. She told me she thought she had another UTI  (Urinary Tract Infection) — Got to the clinic and got in fairly quickly. FNP ran a couple of tests and came back with the diagnosis of a Kidney infection…… Dammit Emmit~!

My Queen got a shot in the touchas and was sent off for blood and urine samples as the FNP wanted to make sure she wasn’t missing anything. So we drove to a different clinic for those samples. Then we drove to the pharmacy to get prescriptions filled. Finished all that up in time to stop by Blues for a quick beer and then meet up with our realtor to look at a couple of places. Both nice, but nothing I would “write home to Mom” about. Realtor is supposed to be lining up a couple of more for us to see. When we finished with the showings – Angie said she was tired and wanted to go lay down, so we headed back to the condo. Got the place cooled down and got her settled. I took off for the grocery store. Because I hadn’t eaten yet (and it’s now 3:00) I swung past Blues for a beer and a smoked turkey, bacon and ranch sammich……. woo-doggy that is some kind of wonderful eating right there~! Finished the sammich and a couple of more beers for good measure – then headed out to the store….. Jeez was that a mess…. but I Got-R-Done and headed back to tend to my bride.

Just got back and got the groceries put away when she came rolling out of the bedroom. Feeling a little bit better, but still sore from shots and blood draws. We repaired to the living room for some ‘Gordon’ (Hell’s Kitchen)… did you know when you stream movies (or TV shows) from Amazon – that they are not censored ?  Adds a whole new dimension to watching that show with all the ‘bleeps’ gone….. and there were a lot of bleeps to remove — wow. We watched Gordon until Angie got tired and headed off to bed and now here I sit…… gonna load more random pictures [maybe] and then head that way myself.

I have my first dive (on this island) scheduled for tomorrow – looking forward to that~! Good night ya’ll — Thankx for stopping in~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
