Fence’s and grilling~

This morning was more like what we are accustomed to waking up to – gorgeous sunrise with hardly a cloud in site….. waves were crashing on the beach and just an overall gorgeous day. Took it easy  getting ready and was out the door a few minutes before 08:00 heading for Blues. I took the lattice off of the fence and my bride started painting while I started building the gate needed for the new fence. We stayed right at it for a steady 3 hours and finally – the fence project is done~! Lining up new fencing to existing turned out to be more challenging than I expected, but for using a lot of salvaged material, I don’t think it turned out to bad.  Jim now has added another gate he would like built to my list of things he’d like done – so plenty of projects to keep me as busy as I want to be. The plan is to take a day or two ‘off’ and get some odds and ends done that we have been needing to do (like get our drivers license changed) and I think we’re due for some snorkeling…. probably going to go to Cane Bay for that. We finished up and sat and had 1 or 5 drinks while we cooled off a little bit and caught up on some of the chatter at the bar.

Finally came back to the condo to suck up some conditioned air and get much needed showers. My Queen requested a steak for dinner, so I fired up the grill and dropped a steak on for her (with sautéed onions) and a couple of burgers for me. You’ll see several more burgers in the pictures…. I always make a couple of extra’s for a quick snack or meal. A couple of drops of Olive oil and 30 seconds in the microwave and they are almost as good as straight off of the grill. I’m a little bit befuddled as to the meat here…… it’s just not what I was used to back in the states. I don’t know if they add extra stuff to it because they know it’s being shipped a long way, but it just doesn’t taste the same as back in Indiana…. I dunno, maybe I’m nuts or something….. I’m sure I’ll figure it out soon though.

Finished up our dinner while watching C.H.I.P.s (the movie) – remake of the old series on TV. It wasn’t bad…..it wasn’t good, but entertaining enough for an HBO movie. We watched the sun set and now have a mind bending amount of sea weed washing up. Came out of no where and is just bombarding the beach. It has done this once before…. we don’t like it – it takes away from the beauty of the beach and can get quite odorous if it sits out there too long. Not a heckva lot we can do about it – but wait for it to wash back out…… That’s it for today —

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~!!!! ;-)
