Woo-Hoo~!!! We have internet~!!!!

I was up inexplicably early this morning, and while my Queen slept in from a rough night of battling of what can only be described as White Castles revenge, I took off for a stroll around the neighborhood. It didn’t take me long to wind up on the beach and enjoying that stroll when a small rain shower popped up. I was entirely too far away from the house to try and run back for cover – and who are we kidding here…..me run…. Hahahaha….. so I carried on with my stroll while the small rain shower turned into a pouring rain being driven by 20+ mile per hour winds. The wind was also picking sand up off of the beach and was inflicting a whole lot more pain on my bare legs than I cared to deal with – so I cut across the closest strip of yard that I could find. Almost fell over a no trespassing sign, but didn’t have anyone yelling or shooting at me, so I carried on until I got off of the property. The rain had quit  by then so I continued on with my walk, rousing dogs and the occasional rooster.

Got back to the condo just as my bride was getting up and we had a cup of coffee and sat and watched the waves rolling into our beach. Later we had a nice breakfast and just hung out at the house doing odds and ends. One of the places we wanted to go today wasn’t open – so we decided to wait until tomorrow and get everything in one trip. We did find out there will be some maintenance work going on – on our porch – so not sure if we have to be here for that or not. AND – we got our internet connected today~!!!Wooo-Hoo~!!! … and it actually seems to be fairly decent internet [so far]~!! So I should be able to start loading pictures again on a regular basis~! Speaking of which – I’m anxious to see how well the internet works loading pictures onto this (seems like it takes more effort to get them into this website than other places) – so with that, I will bid ya’ll a good evening — and thankx for stopping in~!

UN_FREAKIN‘ believable…… I checked 20 pictures to load – all of them except 3 gave me an  HTTP error~!!! Gonna have to see if I can figure out what the issue is…. more later~~

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~!!!! ;-)
