Home Depot and new dive club…………

Got to sleep in a bit this morning, but only because I woke up in the middle of the night and peed for approximately 17 minutes. Well, probably wasn’t that long, but it certainly felt like it. They say corn is crop – a pee [pea] is a relief — Hey – I’ll take it if it lets me sleep in a little bit. Got up, followed shortly by my Queen and we had our coffee and nicotine sticks. I told her I would like to be at Home Depot by 08:00, but fairly sure I wasn’t going to make it (cause it was 08:20 then) — so I aimed for 09:00. I was suffering from some upper GI distress – and I’m sure it had nothing to do with the amount of alcohol, or onions that I had the previous day. 😉  Finally felt safe to leave the general area of my bathroom and headed out to Home Depot to pick up materials I need for the fence I am putting up. Spent 30 minutes or so and finally had DD loaded with everything I think I’ll need for the job. Pictures to follow in the next day or so. Delivered the load to Blues and got everything unloaded. It was already after noon by that point, so we had to sit and have a couple of drinks~! I did have another hotdog [yes- with onions]. We had  several more drinks and headed back to the condo.  I had been invited to a meeting of a local dive club that evening, and I wanted to get back and get showered up for that.

My bride and I both showered up and sat on the couch and sucked up some conditioned air and just took it easy until it was time to head out for the meeting. It was held above a restaurant called BREW STX — A place that specializes in their own local made beer. Interesting group of folks. They call them selves CRABBS. I haven’t fund out what the acronym is for yet – but I have come up with one that suits me (Crotchety Raunchy Ancient Bald Bastards) but I seriously doubt that is it, but they’re welcome to use it if they like it  😉  I volunteered for several events they have coming up, one which includes being a rescue diver for the upcoming Iron Man Triathlon.  I think that will be interesting as hell. Will try and get pictures of anything I get myself involved in for you. I think I signed up to join the club as well, but started drinking when I got there and not entirely sure now if I did or not~~~ : )  Finally packed up and came back to the condo. It looks like we have new neighbors for the next week. Kinda looking forward to meeting them and being able to tell them we LIVE here and telling them about our beautiful island.

The plan now is to get up fairly early and get some work done on the fence at Blues before it gets brutal hot — so I’m gonna put some pix up for you and call it a night….. hopefully sleeping all the way through the night AND sleeping in 😉

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~!!!! ;-)

  1. Great pictures as usual, look forward every day to reading your stuff,,,now just gonna do it, thought could figure out, but haven’t,,,what is SHAKE OF THE ,DAY,,, that is so expensive,,,,cannot be. SHAKE like I think,,,milkshake etc, If asked this before,,ignore,,consider old person asking, ,hi to Angie,,,will be listening and looking at your stuff tomorrow,,,

    1. Hi Vera —
      Shake of the day is a dice game. There are 5 dice in a small cup, you get 3 tries (for one dollar) Object is to roll 5 of a kind in one roll (like YAHTZEE). I have seen the pot get up over $1000. You only get one shake per bartender shift. I always give it a shot – kind of like a small island lottery and almost every bar on the island does it. One bar recently had a ‘pot’ of over $4000~! People drove from all sides of the island for a shot at it every day 😉
