Rat proofing, chicken and sunsets………..

Up bright and early this morning to be up at Blues for today’s project. Was treated to another spectacular sunrise. Never get tired of those, even if it means being up earlier than I want to be. After some coffee and getting woke up, I gathered up my stuff and my bride and away we went. Angie helped me empty out the stock  before moving onto cleaning up some of the lattice work we’re using on the fence I built. While she started on that, I started in trying to rat proof the storage room by putting up small mesh steel screen to keep them gnawing little buggers out. I was correct yesterday saying that it would be warm in that room up against the ceiling…. wooo-weee….. and I have multiple little holes in my fingers and hands from manipulating that screen. It took me almost 3 hours, but I finally got it finished and everything put back in the stock room while Angie put on a coat of primer on the fence. The plan is to go up Sunday morning and put on the final coat of paint on the fence and I’ll try and get the gate built and installed as well, so we can wrap that project up. Jim has already given me my next assignment when I’m ready for something new to work on  🙂

After we cleaned up, we sat down at the bar just as it opened up and had us a handful of refreshing adult beverages. Today’s special was grilled chicken (a half of chicken) and we looked at enough of them being consumed around the bar, that we decided to order us a couple to take home with us. We were both sweaty and dirty and wanted to get a shower before we ate. We got home and started soaking up the conditioned air and finally cooled off…… getting hungry in the process, so sat and had our (wonderfully delicious) grilled chicken while we sat and watched a movie (Rememory) fairly decent flick, a little far fetched but entertaining. We also watched Frozen Ground with Nicki Cage [I’m tight enough with him I don’t have to call him Nicholas — wink, wink] – that was a good movie, based on real events. I would definitely recommend watching it. We paused during the movie to go out and enjoy a more beautiful than usual sunset. Won’t ever get tired of those either. We have now had our showers, my Queen is chatting on the phone and I am regaling you fine folks of the day’s tales – We’re taking tomorrow “off” and have made no plans for the day – so we’ll see what it brings.

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~!!!! ;-)
