A New toy~!

Was really looking forward to sleeping in today knowing I had absolutely nothing planned for the entire day. Well that went over like a fart in church….. shortly after 06:00 I woke up having to pee so bad my eye balls were floating.  Tried to shift around a little bit, but that didn’t do any good either. So I got up to whizzz – and I was up…… Dammit Emmit~! Went out to enjoy the cool morning breeze and was almost knocked over by the smell of the Sargassum seaweed…… jeesh that’s a nasty way to wake up too…… Finished my smoke and a little bit of stretching and came in to get caught up on what was going on in the world. It’s a mess in case you haven’t been keeping up with it. Got through that and got on FB…. I always like to see who got the music trivia from the night before and much to my surprise – I had a stumper….. really caught me off guard as I thought it would be an easy one (Cold, Cold Heart by Hank Williams).

We had our coffee and eventually a nice big breakfast and settled in for a day of movies…… was just finishing up one movie when my Queen asked if I’d like to go look at a kayak. I had seen it on FB, but didn’t really want to spend the money on it. She pestered me enough, I finally got up and we drove out to the East end of the island. I had almost forgotten how nice the views are out on that part of the island. (Southeast) We don’t get out that way much, so I took some pictures for you while we were out there.  Finally found the place and met a delightful young lady selling off her 2 kayaks. We talked and I looked it over, nice little rig that looks like it will suit my needs – so we wound up getting it. It is called an Surf Kayak, slung low to the water and more suited for choppier water. Maybe I’ll finally get to work on getting rid of this gut. Kayaking provides an excellent abdominal workout, and I have a hellva abdomen to work off  😉  Plus it’ll let me get out and explore the local reefs for possible new snorkeling places~!

Came back home for some drinks, dinner (TV dinner with Salisbury steaks – probably one of the worst things on the planet you can put inside you, but I absolutely love them!) and a couple more movies. It’s been a good day. Not sure what tomorrow is gonna bring…… got a dive planned for Tuesday morning, at supposedly one of the best sites on the island, so should have some fun diving pictures for you from that.

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~!!!! ;-)
