Father’s Day 2018

Up much earlier again than I cared for this morning, not sure what the deal is, but have got to find a way to get a tad more sleep. I guess going to bed at a decent hour would help that, so I’m gonna try writing a little earlier in an effort to hit the sack a little earlier.

Got an early morning text from Deb saying they weren’t going up to the yard today, so no reason to come up (Angie was gonna get the new fence painted while I built a gate) That meant I had to stay at home and do nothing but eat and relax….. Awww….. dang~~~~ 😉  My Queen me a great big breakfast with all my favorites (no hotdogs) while I relaxed on the couch and watched the idiot box. Following that nice big breakfast, she joined me for a day of watching movies, pausing periodically to take phone calls from each of my Daughters, wishing me a Happy Father’s Day.  Holidays, particularly this one, pulls a little harder at the heart strings knowing I intentional packed up and moved away from them. A decision though I do not regret – don’t believe I ever will. Over the course of the day, I got to chat with all four of them and a couple of grand babies as well  🙂  As the day wore into afternoon, my bride whupped up a big mess of spaghetti (another favorite of mine) and we sat and watched more movies while we ate. I am almost ashamed of myself for the day I had today – but hot damn did I enjoy it~!! I had to get up and move a little bit as I’m at the point where I can hardly keep my eyes open, so here I  be….. I hope all you Dads out there enjoyed your Fathers Day as much as I enjoyed mine~!

I have one more task I am going to work on before I crash — in the last 2 days, I have started getting text messages saying “Your Uber code: 5620” or something to that effect…. but I am getting 20-30 of them in a row. I have texted STOP – I have even got nasty about it – but they are still popping in. We don’t even have Uber on the island, so if I can figure out how to un-install an App on my phone – I’m gonna try that and see if it will stop it.

Not sure what tomorrow brings – but for tonight – Happy Fathers day and 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~!!!! ;-)
