It’s nice to be appreciated~~

As I stated yesterday…. our afternoon/evening was booked with an event at a local bar/restaurant to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers that helped out at the islands most recent Triathlon. Our day started out ever so slow and boring like usual….. got up when we woke up, gorgeous blue skies, temperatures easing into the mid 80Β°’s… a soft trade wind, palm trees and a gorgeous beach…… AWWWEEEeeeee — I know…. poor pitiful us Huh?? πŸ˜‰ Had a nice breakfast and sat and watch a couple of episodes of Mountain Men…. We’ve seen most of them – but it’s nice to sit and watch them poor so and so’s – nuts deep in snow and shivering and to for us to be able to look out our back door at the Caribbean……. πŸ™‚

It got to be time to head out for our appreciation event, so we cleaned up and headed on out the door. 20 minutes later we pulled into the Deep End bar and restaurant. Everybody there made the effort to get our names and understand the role we played as a volunteer at their event, they also seemed truly happy to see us. It truly is nice to feel that kind of appreciation. Seems like that doesn’t happen as often as it should. It was a cash bar but they had a very nice Taco bar set up and you could eat to your hearts content. Due to the fact I somehow became Mr. Popularity and was drug off to the side for multiple conversations…. I didn’t actually get to taste any of it – but it smelled heavenly and according to my Queen was delicious~! By the time I had made it over to the buffet table, the heaters had been turned off and it didn’t look quite so enticing anymore…. that and I had 2 or 12 drinks by then….. which almost always stunts my appetite. We hung out and chatted with friends and in general had a pretty nice time until the event ended. On top of the appreciation felt – I also managed to finagle my way in on a couple of dives next week and may possibly pick up another position on a committee to help disabled folks (challenged, whatever the correct term is) be able to make a SCUBA dive. More on that as it develops. It got close to dark and I gathered up my Queen and headed for the house…… I had a lot of alcohol sloshing around in my belly and was developing a headache that would kill a Moose.

Safely back home – I figured I better get something solid in me….. I have had a hankering for the past several days for a good ole grilled burger. Not just any burger… one of my burgers~! I had talked myself out of grilling some up for the past week – so tonight – I waltzed my happy a$$ out there, uncovered the grill and fired it up~! Now, an hour or so later, my belly is full… my headache is almost gone and I’m chatting with you all. I have a dive early tomorrow morning (rescue diver) so should have lots to chat about and lots of new pictures for you tomorrow… right now – I’m gonna go get me some sleep~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
