The day after Christmas

Compared to the working folks, we had a pretty easy day today…. not as laid back and easy as some of our days….. but neither of us had to get up to go to work and that in itself is a good thing~! I actually slept in some this morning…… not rolling out of the sack until almost 08:30 — I was ermazed~!! I got early to whizzz and went back to bed and must have found a comfy position…. I like it~!

After a delightful breakfast, my Queen decided she needed to go shopping for groceries and stuff. She <mercifully> said I didn’t have to go, and she was off. I stayed at the condo enjoying the quiet and getting a bunch of ‘piddling’ done. You know what piddling is right….. just lots of small odds and ends that you tend to put off. Like I swapped out the numbers on our front door. The 0 has been missing since we’ve been here and they were just ratty looking. So now we have nice new numbers. I put up our Christmas hats for another year. I got caught up on club functions I’m responsible for (Treasurer and Points Officer) and getting respective spreadsheets up to date. I snagged a bunch of crap out of the water on two different occasions (cutting open a toe on some washed up coral doing it) but our Sea water is cleaner and safer now. I got some online birthday shopping done. Done some sweeping and light weight vacuuming…… you know — piddling~! My Queen finally made it back and I carted everything in for her. Wow- I didn’t have any idea we needed that much stuff~!

Stuff put away and drinks made – we sat down for more episodes of Frasier. I don’t know if my memory is bad or my funny bone has changed – but it is actually a lot funnier than I remember. We are already half way into Season 4. My Bride is now making dinner and I’m chatting to you all. This is a lot earlier than I usually write – but I suspect it is going to be an early night for both of us.

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~!!!! ;-)
