Hells Kitchen, Bathroom trips and Sunsets……….

Another day of R & R for me and my Bride — a nice breakfast whipped up by yours truly….. and taking it easy the entire day….. we have got into binge watching episodes of Hells Kitchen and that’s what we did for most of the day. It’s got a whole new spin on it watching it uncensored……. Did have one small development today that added some ‘spin’ to our day — shortly after I finished up washing my dishes…. I noticed our water had gained a very disconcerting yellow color to it. I cornered the local maintenance dude and asked him about it – he said they were probably working on the pipes somewhere and that it should clear up in 3 or 4 hours after they are done with their work. He confirmed it was definitely not fit for consumption in that condition and then sheepishly admitted that he don’t drink it under the best of conditions…… UMmm …. thankx for that piece of intel.  I have heard it both ways – fit to drink – and probably shouldn’t….. that does probably explain why the past 12 hours I have contracted what can probably only be described as a case of Montezuma’s revenge….. a really bad case of it…. AHhhh – island life….. SO many things to learn yet….. guess we will be switching to bottled water….. Oh good — something else we will need to spend money on…….  Still, we are on a gorgeous island where the temperature is in in the low 80°s every day with warm tropical breezes every day….. which makes it extra enjoyable especially since I have received multiple pictures today of snow back in Indiana (on the First Day of Spring)…. Hehehehe…. ya’ll have fun with that~!

Had our hearts warmed a bit this morning when I got a text from our local bar friends asking if everything is okay……. we have not made an appearance at the Backyard in almost a week and they were worried about us and was just checking in to make sure we were okay and to make sure we didn’t need anything……. good people~!

Because we have not been out and about, I haven’t had the chance for many pictures….. so I spent a little time out on our porch watching another gorgeous sunset and snapped a couple of shots of it for you…… So – even when you are getting hit with outrageous insurance payments, doctors appointments, no permanent place to live (C’mon Kat~!) and a pesky case of running to the bathroom to fart (you hope) – when you see something like this sunset — it’s hard not to smile and know that even though you terribly miss your family, you’re worried about bills and places to live and you dread one more trip to the bathroom, that you did make the right choice……..

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~!!!! ;-)
