Down day………….

First time in almost a week…. we got to ‘sleep in’… we were both up by 06:15 – BAaaaHAhahaha…..that’s what happens when we go to bed at a decent hour…. watched a sunrise masked by some fairly serious heavy clouds, but had the most awesome cool breeze coming in at around 78°…….  🙂  Not a heckva lot went on today – caught up on world news and all that crap that is Facebook…. I ran up to Blues to welcome Jim and Deb back home and clean up the last of my mess up there that I didn’t get to yesterday. Came back to the condo and spent the vast majority of the day academically….. finishing up the books and last video that I had on my Rescue Diver course. Last book and video was on the First Aid part of the course — Don’t remember if I mentioned it or not – but I was a Red Cross First Aid instructor a 100 years when I was stationed in Las Vegas……. actually pretty spooky how much of that information came back to me as I went through that course. I have just notified my instructor I am ready for testing and field applications. Long Thanksgiving weekend will force me to wait – but hopefully, will be certified by the end of next week. YAY~!!!

No new pictures and really not a lot else to carry on about – so gonna leave it right here….. my little Sister is pinging me and chatting — which tickles me to pieces — a great way to keep up on the goings on. I am trying not to get homesick as she tells me about the big Thanksgiving they have planned up there in the land of icicles and snow….. I’m a little bit jealous and a lot of envious. As I told her- one of the downsides of living here on this gorgeous rock – is being away from our kids and other loved ones during the holidays. A fact made a little (okay – a LOT) easier when we listen to woes already of ice and snow and it is a balmy 80+° here with what is referred to now as the Christmas winds blowing in.  With what little humidity we have is gone, and once the sun goes down and the temperature dips [occasionally] into the upper 70’s° ((aweee)  and you almost get goosebumps because it is getting chilly…….ya gotta take the good with the bad I suppose~~~ 😉

Just came in from a smoke with my Queen, watching a massive cruise ship moving slowly away from the island, just having spent the day in port on our beautiful island. We have another one due in Sunday. I just wish I had a good enough camera (Like a Nikon D4 or something) and appropriate lens to get ‘that’ shot. We also have an almost full moon which is making what would be some gorgeous shots….. but alas, a cell phone camera – just ain’t gonna get it…..

So with that….. friends, family and sports fans…. I’ll sign out – wishing you and your families a very Happy and wonderful Thanksgiving.  I truly hope you get to spend some time with the people you love and be thankful of all of the little wonderful things life has to offer.

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~!!!! ;-)
