Jesus H Christ what a long day….

I know the second I put that title up, I’m probably gonna offend some people…. certainly not my intention – but those of you that truly know me, know that I am not what is considered by most standards a religious person. I do believe in a higher power…. just haven’t landed yet on who or what that power is…. I believe the term is Agnostic…… any how — the title is to illustrate [verbally] the kind of day I had. I had my phone rouse me at 06:30 so I could get up and do my ‘morning thing’ before taking off to help out some friends in bringing up the rear on an ATV tour for them. I should have know the day was not gonna start out smooth, when I got up at 05:30 to relieve the pressure on my bladder. I noticed the power was off (all the fans were off) – this no longer is unusual… so I slid back into bed and waited for my alarm to go off…. which it did, as I apparently dozed back off fairly quickly. I woke up to still no power in the house… again, really not that unusual any more… Since we’ve been here, I don’t think we have had one single week, where we didn’t lose power for at least a little bit. AAAHHhhh Island life. When I say lose power, that also includes A/C, cable and internet~! I stumbled around the house, with no power, so I used the bathroom, washed my face and brushed my teeth- in the dark and then came out to greet the day. No coffee, nadda -~! I spent my remaining time, out on the patio watching some ferocious waves and listening to the wind whistle through the palm trees. Finally time to go – I gathered up what I thought I would need for the day, gave me Queen a kiss good bye and headed out the door….. right into what can only be called a monsoon. I navigated my way to the West end of the island to pull into my assigned location with about 10 minutes to spare…… only to receive a phone call and be relieved of my obligations due to weather.

I journeyed back across the island to my Queen, to find out we still had no power….. and it stayed that way…. for 10.5 HOURS~! Electric finally kicked back on, only to shut off again after 1 hour. While we had some of the most amazing scenery to watch (massive waves crashing into our beach) – I can only take so much of that. When the power went off again – we decided to head up to Blues for a drink and some dinner….. here we go again with that ‘a drink’ stuff — LOL ~! They have a generator – so we knew there would be cold drinks and hot food + good people.

Long story short [since I’m at my limit already]…. we shut them down, we’re back home and I’m ready for bed……. I now have 2 ATV tours for tomorrow (to bring up the rear on) – but they are calling for pretty much the same weather – so I guess we’ll see. In the meantime, I’m tired and only have a couple of pictures for you tonight….. I have one video I think you’d like, but pretty sure this POS website won’t let me load it (Thankfully, we had power when we got here)…. so a pic or two and promise of more tomorrow~~~~

Good night Ya’ll – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!

AARrghh… the Sea, she be angry~!!!
Words to live by……………

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~!!!! ;-)
