and on I go………….

I left you yesterday pulling out of my less than wonderful experience at our local Home Depot…… for those of you that wonder…. yes – I bitch to the Home Depot main head quarters…. LOUD and clear…… ditto with the McDonalds we frequent….. does it do any good you ask ? OH HELL no….. but I feel slightly better doing it. Anyhow….. I pulled up to the intersection to get away from Home Depot to be greeted by a pile up on the main highway…. and sat there for almost 30 minutes, before the officer working the scene finally figured out that the traffic light at that intersection was doing a HELLVA lot better job at handling traffic than he was…… so he finally stood back and let folks navigate their way out of that mess…….. Good Grief……… With material on board I needed for my next project at Blues….. I happily stopped at our watering hole to drop off my supplies. Of course I had to have a drink and be sociable….. after all, the Bloody Mary and the Red Eye I had at the meeting had done worn off……..(a Red Eye is equal parts of beer and tomato juice….. don’t knock until you’ve tried it~!) So I got supplies unloaded and sat down and ordered a Vodka & Cranberry…. my latest drink, weirdly, Crown & Coke just ain’t doin’ it any more…… I pile drived 2 of those drinks and using better judgement (I do that every once in a while) I headed back to the condo to my Queen. We had our first official meeting of CRABBS (our dive club) with the new board that night – of which I am an officer. My Queen and I were both starving, so we agreed to get there early enough to get us something to eat. We got there, got our food and actually got to enjoy it just as people started showing up for the meeting. I had put a new sign-in process in place and was trying to implement it….. alas~ It didn’t go as smooth as I was hoping…… but it was a hoot for everybody as I tried to make it work….. through the chaos that ensued, I finally got everybody signed in and the meeting commenced. We had a good set of speakers detailing their trip through Africa with pictures and videos and every body was having a good time. After the presentation, it was my turn to speak…… which I did…. loudly and proudly. Being mostly deaf in one ear and having trouble hearing out of the other — I tend to speak loudly….. as it turns out – I was the hit of the evening – as I was apparently the only one, people could actually understand. We had a record turn out of 58+ people in attendance. I am working on a PA system for the next meeting so the rest of them weenies can be heard 😉 I had one guy stop me and tell me, he was happy to finally hear a ‘Command Voice’ for a change [obviously a Veteran]…. it made me feel good. The rest of the meeting went well and I believe we (the new board) are a hit. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the year with the club.

Well Dammit Emmit~! I’m already over my limit and didn’t even get to today…… so once again — I’m out…… see you all tomorrow. (Happy Birthday Deb~!!!)

Good Night Ya’ll – – – – -Thankx for stopping in~!

MmMmMmmmm good~!

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~!!!! ;-)
