Getting ready for a long 3 days….. probably~

Battling some kind of stomach thing, I was up a lot earlier than I would have liked… but some things you have to contend with. Afraid to eat anything, I opted to skip my usual yummy little breakfast and nursed a bottle  of water all morning.  Looks like we had another turtle on the beach last night laying eggs. This one must have been much smaller, because nest and tracks were not at all impressive – at least not enough to take pictures of.  I went out on the beach and checked out the nest – then went and got me a couple of small buckets and gathered up some rocks and stones and sand that I’m gonna need for my up coming projects. We then loaded up into DD and headed for Home Depot for a couple of other odds and ends I needed for my projects. I found a way to maybe ease some of the headaches of going to this particular Home Depot. I found the item on line (that said they had in stock here) — and I saw a handy little button, when I clicked it, it sent me text, with a picture of the item, and  the row and bin number it was in. I couldn’t wait to see if it worked. I felt so tech savvy strolling through the store, referencing my phone…. woot-woot~!! The biggest jaw dropper of it…….. it was actually right there where it was supposed to be — HOT DAMN~! I may be on to something here~!!!    We stopped at Blues and dropped off some of the stuff and sat and had two or three drinks – no really…. we actually stopped drinking early and left. Again, a little leery of putting much of anything in my belly – I didn’t want to overdo it. The plan was to go back to the condo, watch a couple of movies and I was going to make some fish ( I knew I would have to eat something eventually, boys my size just can’t wander around on empty all day)

Got back and watched a couple of movies, neither of them worth mentioning. Second movie was uninteresting enough that I got up 3/4 of the way through it and started my fish. It should go without saying….. it was not Bass I was making…. this was Cod Loins or something like that….. definitely not Bass.  I’ll keep looking and trying though….. there is a lot of fish to try out. It wasn’t terrible, but much like my pizza itch — there is still some scratching to be done. My belly is already starting to grumble – so apparently whatever the deal is with my belly – it is still not happy. Maybe a couple of days of hard labor will fix it….. We’ll see starting bright and early tomorrow morning. Blues is closed for the next 3 days and I plan on using every bit of it to clean up several projects there. I’ll try to save enough energy to write a little bit though~~~  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
