Meetings and drinking…….

Had my alarm set for 06:30 this morning so I could be up long enough to wake up and do my bathroom stuff before we headed out for our Fish with a Vet meeting…… did I sleep until the alarm went off ??   NOOOOooooooo…. Dammit Emmit…… what do you take or do to ensure a good long, restful night’s sleep ?? This is really starting to get on my nerves……. I mean – I can drink myself into oblivion and get a nights sleep, but I really do find that a bit counter-productive….. ya know?

Anyhow…… we both got up – had a coff of cuppee or two and before long headed out to the New Deep End Bar & Grille sitting on the Tamarind Reef Resort. First time out there for either of us….. nice little place with a good looking little marina right next door. We met out there for a group I joined a while back, called Fish with a Vet USVI. A small but growing group dedicated to providing events and supports for all veterans. The meeting went a lot longer than I thought it should have, but was still a mostly productive meeting, and it is for a good cause. Afterwards my bride and I sampled some of the breakfast items they offered on their menu. I didn’t get my normal pictures of menus and food and stuff as the president of the club and a couple of others hung out to chat while we ate. Angie had French toast and I had biscuits and gravy. Neither meal was brag worthy, but it was hot, filling and neither of us had to cook. Afterwards I snuck out for a cigarette and a couple of pictures to share with you all.

We finally left there and headed across island to the Home Depot for a couple of things for my next project. Didn’t have the wood chisel I wanted without buying a $36.00 set – and I just could not justify that….. so I’ll borrow one from Jim. I guess I got exasperated enough…. I forgot my big boy toys (shovel & rake) so I guess I’ll run to a local store for them tomorrow. We stopped by Blues on the way back to drop off a couple pieces of lumber that I need to finally ‘completely’ finish the build on the fence. Naturally we had to have a drink or two while we were there….. and then a couple of more because it was really hot….. and then a couple of more, just because they were going down really good by that point. 😉 While we were there, Chris Hanley  (  showed up for a bite to eat — -if you’ve ever watched the TV show Caribbean Life — he is the realtor the show usually uses when they are filming here. We finally came back to the condo for some conditioned air and get ready for showers and some sleep…… hopefully~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
