Quite the day…..

Started the day out early getting up and heading out almost right away to attend the Fish With A Vet meeting. We have a big fishing tournament coming up this weekend that promises to be a full and exciting (albeit long and tiring) day. We were making last minute plans to make sure that event happens with as few glitches as possible. A really great organization that promotes activities for veterans on the island. I’m sure there will be lots of pictures for it. We got there at 08:00 and didn’t get back here until almost noon. I then set out to get our A/C fixed, especially after spending a very warm night trying to sleep~~ 🙁  Multiple phone calls and going round and round with the owner of the unit – but finally not only found a guy to work on it – he came out almost immediately~! I followed him up to the roof a couple of times (and got some great pictures from up there) and within an hour he had cold air pouring out of the vents again~!!! Yay~!! One dilemma down. During the whole course of that – our internet died, so we were going round and round with the building manager about our router and modem….. turns out we have the same models that Noah used. That over with, we finally got internet back around 18:00, just in time to head out to a meeting with my dive club. We headed downtown, 8 minutes to get there and 22 minutes to find a parking spot….. but we finally gathered up at Brew STX for a fun social meeting and drinking, electing new officers for the club — I now have a position with the club, although I’m not entirely sure at this point what it is  😉  We got treated to a monsoon type down pour during the meeting. The venue was an open air bar (as most places on the island are) and we were soon all huddled up in one corner trying to avoid being completely soaked….. Ahhh….. Island life~! We finally wrapped it up around 21:00 and headed back to what hopefully was going to be a nice cool abode. We decided we were hungry, so whipped into Mickey-D’s and a mere 28 minutes later was headed back to that [hopefully] nice cool condo. Thankfully it was….. we enjoyed our Quarter pounders with fries in cool bliss while catching up on an episode of NYPD Blues. Full and tired, we crawled into our nice cool bed and faded off for some much needed rest. Goes without saying… I didn’t get on here.

Today we did some running and shopping for some stuff we’re gonna need for some sprucing up we’re gonna be doing at Blues Backyard BBQ…… if it will EVER quit raining~! I spent the rest of the day with book learning for my new SCUBA certification and just finished the first book a little bit ago. I am currently downloading a program to be able to play a training DVD on here and barely remembered I hadn’t written you all yet — so here I be. Lots of pictures for you. I may save some for tomorrow – but I think you’ll enjoy what you see.

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~!!!! ;-)
