Oh Lordy what a day~!!!!

Guess you noticed I got last night’s blog up fairly quick….. that’s cause the old fat boy was plum wore out….. may have been a small factor of alcohol in there – but C’mon…. is that really a surprise to any of you ???    😉   Up bright and early this morning after a reasonable night’s sleep – anxious to get the day started, because our baby and her family are coming in tonight. Sadly it is on the late flight…… here on the island – you either arrive at 3:00 p.m. something or 9:00p.m. something……The only 2 flights coming into the island….. My Honeybear is coming in on the (9:00 something (according to latest stats – 9:48 to be exact- however- there is nothing exact on this island….) so suffice it to say… it’s gonna be late and I figured I can bang out my blog while I anxiously await their arrival. We haven’t seen them in 10 months and I have some huggin’ and kissin’ to make up for…….   🙂

We spent the day running around to different grocery stores to make sure we have everything we need for their arrival….. to include 3 rambunctious boys. Suffice to say that we stimulated the hell out of the island economy today – but it is worth every penny in the anticipation~!! We have talked endlessly between stores about what they will want to do….. who will want to do what and such stuff. We are like kids at Christmas~!! We finally finished trying to buy out various stores, got home and started putting everything away……. I would like to toss in here…… the old fat boy made 6 trips from the truck to the kitchen (heavily loaded each trip) to unload everything (that be going up and down stairs to do it) so I got my cardio in for the day….. well,    kinda…… yay me~!  😉  Everything unloaded and put up, we were waiting on a delivery for some sleeping apparatus’ that was supposed to be here by 2:00 ….. 3 phone calls and 3 hours later they finally made it….. DAMMIT Emmit~! We have things to do — let’s get on with it~!

That finally out of the way — we figured we’d best get a bite to eat to soak up some of the drinks we had been having —– oh yea…. RIGHT….. we’re sitting around waiting for late delivery people and we ain’t gonna be drinking~!?!?!?     So we loaded up into DD and headed for Blues…..<yea – another big shock huh?>  My Queen got her a hot dog with Sauerkraut and I had a hot dog with mayo, mustard, pickle and onion…. just like I like my burgers……. we also had a drink or 8. Figured we didn’t want to get too torn down before we went to pick up our precious cargo – so we lit out and came back to the condo to suck up some of that wonderful conditioned air, cool off and get squared away before we take off for the airport.  We have about an hour now before we take off and I can’t hardly keep my big ass in this chair~!!!! Like I said last night – not sure if I’ll get to this during their stay – but will try….. in the mean time……

So while we stand on our patio and watch that gorgeous full moon come up behind the palm tree while the waves break on our beach…..waiting to take off for the airport…. I bid you …..Good night Ya’ll …… Thankx for stopping in~!

(except for Daughter)  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
