Moving and shopping……

Woke up a whole set earlier this morning than I had planned on…… at about 05:15 I heard noises that I thought was coming from inside our apartment. I got that ‘rush’ feeling and eased out of bed to check out the place. It didn’t take long to realize the noise was coming from our up stairs neighbor……. I grabbed a cigarette and stumbled out onto the patio to hear neighbors boyfriend out on their patio banging and rattling around. I asked him if that was going to become a habit and he got about half $hitty and said he was packing up to leave —  Just cause he was pi$$ed he had to be up that early – he didn’t have to make sure everybody else was up. Good friggin’ riddance $hit stain….. With that event – I was up….. like I said before – once I’m up — I’m up. What complicates that, was I sat up until Midnight the night before working on my blog and some other stuff.

I had plans for a fairly full day, so I used the extra time to enjoy a beautiful sun rise, a cof of cuppee and some piece and quiet now that $hit stain was gone. About the time I formulated my plans for the day – I got a text asking if I was still willing to help move a couch……. crap – forgot all about it. Fortunately, I have all the time I need now – so I replied sure. I had agreed to help one of the bartenders from Blues (Eddy) get rid of his couch. The original agreement was to let him use my truck to haul it off (while I sat at the bar and drank) but that managed to morph into actually help move it. He said he would buy me a case of beer for helping him. I told him that wouldn’t be necessary….. then after a couple of seconds thought, added…unless it is a big sectional or up 6 flights of stairs. He stared at me for a second and said “well– I guess I owe you a case of beer.”  Dammit Emmit~! Why didn’t I ask about that before volunteering. It wasn’t a sectional – but tie me to an ant hill and smother my ears in jelly was there stairs…. and stairs…. and more stairs. Then he pointed out a very large box at the bottom of the stairs and said  “hey – would you mind helping me bring the new couch up while you’re here?” Whadda ya gonna do at that point ??? Let’s put it this way —-the old fat boy got his cardio in for the day…….! Possibly for the week~! We finally got the couches swapped out, loaded into DD’s and drove around half of the island looking for a dump that would take it. We finally Got-R-Done and I dropped Eddy off back at his place to enjoy his new couch.

Dang– I’m already at my 500 words and just getting started, but I’m gonna quit here. I started early so I could get my touchas in bed early tonight and it’s already after 21:00 (that’s 9:00 for you civilians out there) — I’m gonna load up some pictures for you and drag my tired old butt to bed.  More about the rest of the day later.

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~!!!! ;-)
