Off key kinda day……..

Rolled out this morning, once again earlier than desired….. little Sister shared a tip she uses, so I’ll give that a try, because as of right now, it is all I can do to sit here and type this….. course, having spent about 3 hours longer at Blues than I planned on may have had a teeny tiny bit to do with it  😉  We cut out about 13:00 this afternoon to go look at the door job I was telling you about. Relieved to see most of the doors already have jambs in them, so I should knock them out fairly quick. Setting jambs in a concrete door way is a full fledged pain in the touchas….. trust me…… Left there and went to the ‘local’ hardware store for a 7.1/4″ circular saw…. they had them.. for $ 180.00….. that is not a typo my fellow peoples. I expressed my dis-belief, but to no avail…. $180.00 friggin dollars-!!!!! I got the couple of things I knew the Home Depot didn’t have and took off again for mid island back to Home Depot. I sh*t you not — I got the exact same freakin’ saw at Home Depot for $ 39.99~!!  I was livid~! TRYING to adapt to the messed up culture on this island….. I let it go…. I got my big boy toys (shovel & rake) to work on the beach, my saw and a couple of odds & ends and headed back toward the condo. I had to stop by Blues to pick up my tool bag for tomorrows project and SINCE WE WERE THERE…… figured we’d have a drink or two….BaHAAaaaaa……. a drink or two— that’s some funny sh*t right there……  😉  I did get pulled aside while we were there to help Jim cut a pig apart…. not your everyday bar activity – but hey — I’m always up for something new. The pig is for the big fund raiser on Saturday.  I finished that up and went back to drinkin’~~~~ They had THE most pitiful performer I have ever heard on stage trying to belt out some tunes….. but I managed to mostly ignore him and drank and enjoyed the atmosphere. After about 4 more drinks (and shots) than I should have had….. I snatched up a couple of dozen wings (it was Wing Wednesday after all) and headed back to the condo. My Queen, apparently not being a “wing person” opted to make her something else – so I dutifully sat and shoveled all 2 dozen wings into my gullet — MmMmMm good stuff~!  Belly full… almost too full…… I figured I’d better get you something up here…… So- I’ve had a smoke, made sure there are no new turtles on the beach….. and since I’m about out of stuff to ramble about… so I’m done.   I think I only have one or two new pictures…. so will put up some older ones you may have not seen yet……

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~!!!! ;-)
