A new batch of family in : ))

Yesterday was a day of shopping and prepping for our arrivals today. The day culminated at Blues and me getting probably a lot more Fubar’d than I should have, but I reckon you’ll have that every now and again…… I certainly know that I’ll have that every now and again…..  😉

Topped off the shopping today with groceries for our impending arrivals, then stopped by Blues to help them celebrate Cinco De Mayo. Have to give them folks credit – they put on a heckva party for the occasion. As bad as we hated to leave – we happily left for the airport to pick up our second Daughter Stephanie and husband (Josh) and 2 Grandson’s (Will & Colton). Flight landed on time and before we knew it – we were loaded up in a rental ‘bus’ and heading for our condo. Got everybody unloaded and OOhed and Ahhed over the beach before deciding everybody was hungry. We loaded back up in the bus and took off for Blues. By then the place was filled to capacity and the mood was electric. As wonderful as that was, they had went through most of their food and a full cycle of beer, so beer coming out was barely cold. Because we couldn’t get burgers or dogs (purely Mexican food today) and due to the immense crowd, we opted to cut out early and head back to the condo where I lit the grill up and commenced to feed folks…… it was wonderful to have the grill going and full of food. We had burgers, dogs, chicken breast and steaks. Grandsons and everybody got their bellies full while we watched the sun set.

Finally inside and kiddlies got their showers and are now fading out into a long overdue slumber. My little Mr. Colt is already sacked out and my Deuce, Will, is starting to fade…..Been a long day for the travelers and a good night sleep will do us all good. We are looking to another fun filled two weeks with this crew…… I am being summoned to a game of UNO – so I’m gonna leave it with you……

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~!!!! ;-)
