Another slow day on the island~

Woke up to our normal gorgeous blue sky this morning…… the wind is finally starting to lay down and our weather seems to be returning more to normal. A lazy day, with a small breakfast and taking it easy. I did manage to get up to the post office to mail out my music trivia prize and other items that needed mailed. For those of you that don’t do Face Book – I have a small music trivia game that I put up almost every night (if I haven’t been out at an event or drank too much and just too tired) A dear friend suggested I ‘track’ winners – which I started doing. It’s added another level to the game – I think it’s made it a tad more interesting. I have enough people vying to get the answer – that I put up some changes in it once in a while to give everybody a fair shot. I’ll put it up really early sometimes, or really late, I’ll make it music from the 40’s or 50’s for the more seasoned players and some from the 70’s for the ‘kids’ in the group. I have trickled into the 80’s a couple of times but it’s rare, as I believe most music after the 70’s….. suck~~ 😉 I cover most genre’s to help keep it even. I heard multiple hints about a prize for the most correct answers – and I followed up with that – hence getting the ‘prize’ in the mail today. There was a surprise also went out in the mail today – but I can’t elaborate on it yet, or else it will ruin the surprise….. more on that one after the surprise arrives~~ 😉 Rules to the contest are simple – guess the title of the song….. and you must say the title of the song (not just the next line of it) – it’s on the honor system…. if you cheat and look it up (and if you don’t know it you should look it up and listen to it – you just might like it) please keep it to yourself so others have the chance to try and get it. I go for the occasional stumper…. songs I don’t think anyone will know unless their minds have that unusual path mine takes once in a while. SO FAR – all songs listed, are in my brain and I know them by memory [although sometimes I copy and paste them just to cut down on typing]….. I had a Son-in-Law call BS on that once…… so I told him to ‘try me’…… He tried for about a half an hour. With over 170 songs used already (no repeats)…. I believe I still have a ways to go before I run out of the music in the jukebox that is my brain….

Wow – didn’t plan on that little spiel – I guess I felt like it needed said….. so if you haven’t joined in yet – give it a shot….. there may be a prize in it for you.

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~!!!! ;-)
