Another year – about shot…….

Another gorgeous day to spend as this year [not so] slowly rolls to an end. Not a lot went on today….. usual breakfast, we gathered up all laundry that needed done and I ran it down to the laundry service…. one of the little luxuries we afford ourselves versus trying to do it in the laundry room at the end of the complex. Machines are two-bit and don’t work half the time or the dryers don’t cool off and melt your favorite shirts, plus having to lug it down to the end of the complex (100+yards) – ( I got a nasty gram for driving up to it last time) So sometimes we treat ourselves……

Spent the bulk of the day watching TV and doodling on the computer. By early afternoon I had some funds from the Fish With A Vet organization that I am Treasurer for, that needed deposited before the end of the year – so I ran down to the bank and made the deposit and then stopped and picked up laundry on the way back. My Bride made some delicious pork chops and stuffing for dinner as we watched more Frasier… Exciting day huh ?

I am ‘working’ (and I use that term loosely) tomorrow and Saturday. Shawn and Cynthia asked me if I would ride as the follow up rider (bringing up the rear of a tour) on a couple of their ATV tours and I happily obliged. Weather is calling for rain, so it might be a muddy tour – but I am good with that – Happy to do it. Probably won’t get a lot of pictures, as controlling the machines typically takes 2 hands – but I’ll see if I can snag some during rest breaks.

No new pictures, so like a lot of the other places….. I’ll put up what I think are some of my best shots for the year for you tonight…….

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~!!!! ;-)
