Woooo-weee what a day……..

First off — I see I didn’t title last night’s blog…. Dammit Emmit~!  I couldn’t think of anything funny or catchy when I started writing, so I figured I’d write a little bit and maybe something would come to me, and then published it without noticing it didn’t have a title….. DUH… what a wanker…… anyhow… here I am again…. Slept in a little bit this morning….. almost 06:30~!!  Rolled out to clouds [but no rain~!] and a wonderfully cool breeze….. guesstimating in the very low 80°s  😉 Took it pretty easy this morning, updating spreadsheets for Fish With A Vet and getting things in order for the big tournament tomorrow. Had a tasty breakfast and relaxed with a couple of episodes of NYPD Blue (just started season # 9).  Shortly after lunch time – had to load up and go get beer we are donating to the cause tomorrow – so we journeyed across island to the local version of a SAM’s Club called Cost U Less — and loaded up 10 cases of beer. Free beer for everyone tomorrow at the tournament~! We arrived there just in time to get rained on….. So much for the forecast that says we are [finally] done with rain….. Got beer and a couple of other essentials (booze and hamburgers), loaded up the back seat of DD with beer and headed back across the island to the condo.

Left the beer locked up in DD and came in to soak up some of our [thankfully still working] conditioned air. Watching more NYPD Blues and getting stiff and a headache from sitting on the couch….. I got up and headed out to the beach to try and rid our area of some of the Sargassum that is still laying all over the place —- I spent an hour or so out there raking and pitch forking Sargassum back into the Sea before another heavy enough rain coaxed me into quitting, although being brutally honest — it didn’t take a hellva lot of coaxing  😉 Not sure how long our clean beach section will last – but it looks good for now and makes a nice clean entry section into the water for the babies we are expecting for the next couple of days. My Queen is sitting out there looking for them now as I write this. I am waiting for one more phone call to clean up my paperwork for the tournament tomorrow – then I’m gonna hit the sack. Tomorrow has the makings of a very, very, very long day….. I’d almost bet – it will be late enough when we get back tomorrow and I will be tired enough… there probably won’t be a post tomorrow night. Hopefully I will have a bunch of pictures to share with you the next day though………

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~!!!! ;-)
