Down day……

I stayed up a lot later than usual last night, not hitting the sack until about 00:30 this morning….. that was my plan to be able to sleep in a little bit…… Nope….. 06:15 eyes popped open and my bladder said it was time to get moving….. so up I got. My Queen whipped up a nice breakfast for us after we got woke up. Afterward she decided to go hurricane supply shopping today. I opted to stay at the condo and deal with a small insect problem we’re having. Don’t know what these things are or how they are getting in…… but I’m getting about tired of them. I emptied all the cabinets and bombed them with bug spray…. while waiting for the spray to dry I also cleaned all the ceiling fans, scrubbed the kitchen floor and put down 2 coats of mop & glow……

My bride finally made it back and we unloaded the truck and sat down to enjoy some cold adult refreshments. She wound up making a really nice dinner of breaded pork chops, stove top stuffing and corn on the cob. The corn on the cob was actually reasonably fresh — a real treat here on the island.

Bellies full, now watching the idiot box and clouds rolling in. Hurricane Isaac is still on track to go South of us – but we’ll probably have a day or two of rain and storms as he passes by. I may have to venture out for some hurricane pictures… we’ll see. Pretty tame day today….. and I’m ready to hit the sack……

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~!!!! ;-)
