Needed to get a couple of things done up at Blues today, so I rolled out of bed around 06:00 and was up there by 07:00. Got some barrels cut up for the smoker, added another layer of protection to the stock room as it appears our big furry friends are still managing to get in – but not near as bad as they were. I’m on a mission now to keep those nasty bast*rds out of there. It’s amazing just how small a hole even the big ones can get through~! Got that done and started in on my next project which was building a gate to help contain the watch dogs when they are out and on duty. I had saved a section of [wood] fence I had torn down several weeks ago, so I drug it out and dis-assembled it to use the wood on the gate. I even managed to salvage most of the screws it was put together with. Got that done – took some measurements and away I went. By 10:30, the gate was built and put up, so I cleaned up my mess, had a couple of beers while I cooled off a little bit. Donated a dollar to the shake and then headed back to the condo and my Queen.
Seaweed continues to pummel our coast line. It has a lot of the locals baffled. Apparently they never saw this stuff up until about 3 years ago. Water currents and winds must be changing, because we are being hammered with it now. Supposedly all coming out of Africa. My bride ran out for a quick grocery run while I got a showered and cleaned up. She surprised me with a ‘cardboard’ pizza and we munched on it while we watched The Hitman’s Bodyguard. Actually a fairly entertaining show if language doesn’t bother you.
Looking forward to a full day of lounging tomorrow and more movies to watch. As a rule we don’t go ‘out’ on the weekends as beaches and bars tend to be really crowded. One of the great benefits of being retired – going to do things through the week, while the rest of the population works 🙂 Of course, on a tropical island, you always have a fair part of the population on vacation, so you have to deal with them…. but normally only a lot of them during “Winter”…… and they don’t know about some of the ‘secret’ spots~~
That’s about it — couple pictures of my project and the seaweed….. may throw up a couple of my favorites.
Good night Ya’ll …… Thankx for checking in~!
