Celebrating, passing out and rain……….

Sorry about missing a post last night…… after a long uneventful day, My Queen and I went out for a celebratory dinner. We were celebrating getting the proceeds from the sale of the house. It meant a lot to us, other than our kids [and their kids] that was our last tie to the main land. It nice to be out from under that now, it frees up a lot more money for us and we may actually be able to start living within our means now, but I’m not holding my breath  😉  We went to the only place on the island that serves Oysters – my Queen’s favorite meal. I don’t particularly care for the place, but hey – ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Angie had Oysters and Crab Legs and I tried the Lobster Bruschetta. Mine wasn’t bad but there wasn’t very much of it, so I ordered some fish concoction that turned out to be filling – which is about all I can say for it. We had our fill of that place and still wanted dessert, so we decided to try out a little dessert bar we have seen, just a few doors down from where we were. It is a wine and dessert bar… and it was fun~! We had a sampler platter of desserts (like Drunken Cheese cake) and a couple of others plus we tried pairing some wines with the different desserts. Now – we are not wine drinkers as a rule – but we gave it the old college try and that was just plain ole fun and it went well~! Now stuffed and full of alcohol, my bride decided we needed to stop at another place and have a chocolate Martini for a night cap. Who am I to say no to my Queen ? So we moseyed over to a bar we knew made a decent Chocolate Martini and had a seat in the ‘lounge’…… I say ‘lounge’ because it was actually a very small couch and 2 chairs sitting just inside the front door, next to the bar…….. We sat and wound up having a couple of Chocolate Martini’s before we finally decided to head back to the condo. None of the places we were at had air conditioning – or any to speak of – so it felt real good to get back into our place.  After we changed, I sat down to share my day with you. Trying to clear the fog of a bunch of drinks, a couple or 4 glasses of wine and a couple of Martini’s…. the fog started getting thick, so I went out to smoke a cigarette and ‘wake up’ a little bit. I came in and for reasons I don’t recall – went into our bedroom for something…. I vaguely remember laying down on the bed and thinking I’ll ‘rest my eyes‘ for a couple of minutes and then come out and get my blog written… BAA-HAA-haaa……. Next thing I know it was 06:15 the next morning…soooo~~ that’s why the blog didn’t get written last night…. my bad…..

Today started out with heavy clouds and sprinkles….. the clouds got thicker and the sprinkles turned into rain – with an occasional flash of lightening and a couple small rumbles of thunder. Other than a couple of random rays early this morning, we have not seen the sun all day~! That is only the second time that has happened since we got here (Jan 15th) – it’s all good though, because the island was desperate for some rain. It was getting dryer than a pop corn fart around here. That is now remedied and I believe we are supposed to be back to full sunshine by tomorrow afternoon.

Well – I’m way over my 500 words…. so I’ll quit here……

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~!!!! ;-)
