Wrapping it up……….

Woke up a couple of minutes before 06:00 this morning….. normally don’t like getting up that early any more since I retired…. well, actually, never really like getting up that early unless I was going fishing or something else fun like that…. but I was heading up to Blues and have found out that as I am aging a bit more – I require a little more wake up time. Well, not actually wake up time, I have to allow time for extra trips to the bathroom…… I hate it, but trust me when I tell you, it is a necessary evil……. Looking for a bright spot in the early morning scenario [pun intended]….. Waking up to the sun rises we have from our patio, is pretty darn hard to beat….. and for multiple reasons will never get tired of seeing them, I might be a tad prejudice – but the ones we have here are absolutely beautiful~! I got all my bathroom trips out of the way, caught up on mail and FB…. think I have a ‘stumper’ in process on the FB music trivia I put out. 🙂 Angie was supposed to go up to Blues with me, but she had a tough night with what had to be a mild dose of food poisoning, so I let her sleep cause I knew she needed the rest. I grabbed my cooler, wallet, phone and drill and headed out the door.

Nothing special needed done at Blues when I got there, so I started in to try and finish up my fence project. I got the entire length fully screwed on and had one 8′ section that I still needed to flip the boards on, so I went ahead and launched into that. I am happy to report, the fence work is now 99% completed. I have to run by the lumber yard and pick up a couple of pieces of wood to replace a couple busted pieces, but for all practical intent — DONE~! I also want to paint or stain it, but that should be a cake walk compared to the work that has been done on it. Cleaned up my mess and sat and had a couple of beers with Jim, before heading back to check on my Bride. She was up and moving when I got home but still movin’ slow….. I coaxed her into eating a little bit and then again later on in the evening I got her to eat a little more. She says she is now feeling considerably better….. Yay~! We are supposed to be up at Blues again in the morning by 08:00 – so hopefully an early night for both of us filled with peaceful uninterrupted sleep. I know I am hauling off a bunch of junk for Jim tomorrow, plus moving chairs and setting up the yard for the big Corn hole tournament. Not sure what else Jim and Deb have in store for us for the day. Guess we’ll see. Until then……

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~!!!! ;-)

    1. Hi Vera –
      I’m glad you enjoy the pictures so much – I’ll try to keep them coming. Yes – there is some of the most amazing beauty under the water, it kinda boggles the mind. I just wish I could afford a good enough camera that is capable of capturing that kind of beauty.
      On a side note – the house is official SOLD as of today…….
      Thankx for the kind words.
