I  missed yesterday ramblings through no one’s fault other than mine own….. Dammit Emmit~! After a solid breakfast, my Queen and I headed back up to Blues for a little more work around the yard. I cinched up the section of fence I was working, and put up some mesh around one of the buildings to help keep birds out. Angie continued prepping the fence (there is a LOT of that fence) It took me until 2:30 in the afternoon to get to a good stopping point. We both agreed we had did about all we cared to do as the temperature was really getting up there. One of the great things about being retired and volunteering your time…. you make whatever hours you want  😉   We were both soaking wet with sweat and ready to call it a day.

It clouded up a little bit and the breeze picked up, so we actually got reasonably cooled off – so we got us a drink and sat and chatted with folks as they drifted in and out. One of my Queen’s favorite bands was playing later on in the evening, so after a handful of drinks (and a couple of shots) we loaded up and came back to the condo for showers and some conditioned air. After appropriately cleaned and cooled, we jumped back into the truck and headed back up to Blues. The band had already started playing, the air had cooled off fairly nicely and the place was hopping. A friend was celebrating his birthday as well, so there were shots going around and everybody was having a good time. About the time the band wrapped it up – we were both about worn out from the day (and drinking) so we packed it up and came home. Lord have mercy did that conditioned air and couch feel good….. HHMMM good~! Real Good~!  Good enough, that after a quick bite to eat, I sat there and fairly promptly fell asleep…. okay, okay OKAY~!! Passed out, fell asleep……. six of one a half a dozen of the other…… either way – I was zapped. I woke up around 11:30 to a dark house. My bride had already went to bed and was in bed sleeping soundly. I mustered up enough energy to go out for a quick smoke, came in, got a drink of water, took a leak and went and got into bed and fell promptly back to sleep.  I was entirely too out of it to even think about writing anything – so, sorry about that……

We spent the day today – mostly recuperating from the week. Sitting on the couch and eating off and on most of the day. Not sure what tomorrow brings…. but we’re rested and ready for it. Hopefully something worthy of discussing a bit.

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~!!!! ;-)
