Another day~~

Woke up this morning to an awesome looking storm moving across the water. Big ole intimidating looking thing. While the wind picked up and it looked like the end of time coming, we wound up not getting a drop out of it. We watched the storm roll on by and then came to catch up on mail, FB and other goings on. My Queen whipped up another nice breakfast and we settled in to watch some more Justified. Wound up sitting on the couch most of the day and finishing the series of Justified. Pretty good series…..especially if you like the smooth, cool, good lookin’ cowboy type. Not really my gig, but it had a good story line and plenty of other entertaining characters.

Got caught up on some cleaning and organizing in the condo, paid a few bills and decided it was time for something to eat. I haven’t used my new [to me] grill yet and figured I was long over due….. My Queen requested a steak and instead of our usual going to Blues Backyard BBQ (Thursday is Steak night) – I offered to fire the grill up. It sure felt good to be standing in front of a grill again~! I have to ‘learn’ this grill, but for a first time use, our meals didn’t come out half bad and were delightfully consumable. This grill is considerably different from my old one – but with a little practice – I should be banging out presentable stuff soon enough. One of the challenges you face on an island, is getting certain things ‘fresh’. Meat is one of them. Even if you catch it on delivery day to the store – it is almost always 7-10 old by that point. Ditto on many other similar items, but again,a price you have to pay to live on an island in paradise. We got to watch some more clouds building as the sun started setting, so we came inside to enjoy our grilled meal and set down to watch Jumanji while we ate. Entertaining show, but I won’t make much of an effort to see the sequel if there is one. I guess we need to figure out another series to start watching. I have become quite addicted to shows that are not censored and have no commercials…… you should try it.

Gonna call it a night — 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~!!!! ;-)
