Battling the surf and crappy internet….

Going to see if I can at least get a couple of paragraphs to load tonight…… last night was just plain ole goddamn painful……    I’m trying using the hotspot on my phone tonight to see how it will work…… at least so far it is letting me type…..

Not a lot went on the past couple of days – doing some more shopping picking up odds and ends that we’re going to need for impending kids and grand kids visit. AMPED about that -!

Ventured out into the surf today on ‘our’ beach. Ouch…. the old fat boy took a beating…. wow, much, much tougher than I thought it was going to be. The plan.… was to get out past the breakers and see if I could get some snorkeling done out there, but jeez Louise – I don’t know if I caught a rabid set of waves or what – but the breakers just beat the absolute hell out of me. Being very comfortable in the water and not going into an outright panic is the only reason I came out still breathing. Wow – really hard to describe the violence and power of that water. I’m not gonna quit there……I will have to try again… just gonna have to be a little more patient and a whole lot smarter when I try it the next time. Paddle board is definitely not going to be an option here – so will probably go for the next best thing which is an ocean kayak. More on the later.

Stopping here and see if I can get some pictures loaded for you. Good night ya’ll …. and 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~!!!! ;-)
