Not my typical Tuesday~~

Rolled out this morning to that gorgeous view we have almost every single morning of a gorgeous beach, palm trees and brilliant sunshine against that deep blue sky. There were some clouds looming off in the far distance – but did not pose any immediate threat. We went out for our morning smokes and came in to lounge while we perused the news and all the drama that is Face Book. We had just got good and into it – when a text came in asking a question about a meeting I was supposed to be at, in like 10 minutes. HUH ? Meeting ? What meeting ? It took several texts to finally understand, that somehow in my infinite wisdom – I had failed to put a meeting on my calendar. Yes folks, I have become that busy now that I must schedule my stuff on a calendar……. 0H~ALRIGHT ! I’m that damn old/stupid that I have to start writing stuff down so I’ll remember it. Picky, picky, picky~! Any how……. I was sitting in my ‘comfies’ at the computer at about 3 minutes until 09:00 – when it became clear that I was supposed to be at a meeting halfway across the island at 09:00. DAMMIT EMMIT~! I quickly jumped into my traveling clothes and was out the door. My Queen opted to stay home, since she was still not feeling quite like herself. Thankfully, traffic was reasonably light and I pulled into the parking lot of the meeting site at 09:25. Seems like I wasn’t the only one that ‘missed the memo’ as there was only 3 other people there and two of them were eating breakfast, so I felt less bad about being late. I ordered a Bloody Mary and we launched into the meeting. Tried as I might, the meeting kept taking these swerves off track – but I would diligently bring it back. With that being said – I now have several more duties assigned to me and in a mere 2 and half hours later we wrapped the meeting up~! Good God Gertie what a way to start a morning……………

I can tell you right now – I’m probably not gonna get through this day within my word limit – but I’ll see if I can break out a Readers Digest version…… I left the meeting and headed back across island to our local Home Depot store. You really need to experience this place in person to appreciate it. This store is the epitome of a Clusterf**k. I’m sorry for that expression – but it is a military expression and the only that comes anywhere close to adequately expressing how that store is operated. What should have been a 20 minute visit to the store turned into well over an hour…….. “Patience Grasshopper…… breathe in through the nose – out through the mouth” Maybe I do need a Valium prescription. How I got out of there without throat punching somebody is beyond my comprehension….. but I did~ Only to leave the parking lot and pull up to a traffic accident on the main road that had traffic snarled and backed up in both directions a mile or better each way……. Lord give me strength……

Well Hells Bells….. already past my limit 🙁 but I’m tired and it’s late…so I’m gonna cut out here and leave you with more best of 2018

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~!!!! ;-)
