1 Year Anniversary~!

Good Evening everybody — this is going to be a little later than usual and I’m not sure how much there will be, simply because it’s late and I want to hit the hay. Today – almost to the hour – is ONE YEAR that we have been on this beautiful island. We rolled in about this time one year ago – so we didn’t get a very good look at the island as we followed another couple in a car who led us to our first temporary residence. Doesn’t seem like a year yet….. crazy how fast time is going, but fairly easy to understand this year – as we learned our way around the island, found grocery stores and doctors offices. Looking for places to live, and trying to understand our new home. It hasn’t been all easy, but sure has been a lot of fun~! We just wrapped up a verbal agreement with our landlord (paperwork to follow) to renew our lease for another year~! It should be interesting at the very least to see how this year transpires, now that we have our own vehicle, know lots of people, know most of the good spots on the island and getting involved with several clubs and organizations. Bring it~! We’re ready for it~!!

Had to be downtown this morning as a spokesman for the Fish With A Vet organization to do a radio spot on the local radio station with a couple other members of the group. Nice little spot on the radio, I hope it helps. The DJ told me I had a ‘good radio voice’…… that was nice, just glad he didn’t say a face made for radio~~ 😉 That out of the way, I had a couple of quick errands to run and then back here to work on spreadsheets for about 3 hours. I don’t miss that at all, but now that I have everything built and updated, shouldn’t be a lot more to it. I finally finished up all my computer stuff, just in time to catch a couple of episodes of Mountain Men – before we had to load up and head out for a brainstorming meeting with our dive club (CRABBS). We drove out the North Shore road to Off the Wall bar and spent the next 2.5+ hours, brainstorming ideas to help keep the club a fun and active group. I also got to try their pizza~! Not bad, but nothing to write home to Mom about. Safely back at the condo now (that is an ugly drive at night) – I’m gonna sign off and put up some pictures for you. The next 3 days are going to be full and hectic and after tomorrow – I’m not sure when I’ll get to chat with you again.

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~!!!! ;-)
