A day of mostly FRUSTRATION….

After sleeping in until almost 07:00 – woke up to a gorgeous morning here on our beautiful island……. it’s a shame the rest of the day went basically straight to $h*t for me……… We left out a little bit after 08:00, dropped off a whole bunch of laundry (almost 3 weeks worth plus beach towels and linens) and headed out to the Tamarind Beach Resort – that hosts the Deep End restaurant for our Fish With A Vet meeting. REALLY low attendance as we started preparing for our next event coming up, our version of the GONG show to celebrate the 78th anniversary of the USO. NO where near as organized as I would like it to be – but it is starting to take shape (kinda-somewhat)…. but we’ll get through it, one way or the other. It is for a good cause, and history has shown [so far] that everyone has a good time, whether there are 10 people or a 100. Finally got away from there and stopped in at a local hardware store looking for some outdoor lights…. didn’t find what we were looking for, so I think I’m just gonna Amazon it instead of messing with that half-a$$ Home Depot we have here on the island…… Next stop was to find a place to get my Queen on the path of getting healed up. We cut across island to the only Urgent Care Center that I know of on the island. She signed in and we waited, and waited…. then waited a little more. Slightly over an hour waiting, we were called up to be informed that we didn’t have insurance. Say What ? UH-UMmmm – no that’s not right…. please check it again….. Amazingly they made several calls to find out that our policy was cancelled on 12-31-18. Dammit Emmit~! Still wanting to get my Bride healed up — I paid the $200.00 ‘no-insurance’ fee and went back to waiting…. another hour, she finally got called in to see the Doc. Another hour and another $100.00 in medicine, because our prescription service was cancelled too – we were on the road again. Do you get the sense where my frustration is starting to come from ??? Hold on – it gets better… 😉 A quick stop at the store and we came back to the condo for me to get on the phone (all my records and notes are here in the desk) It took another hour of crappy phone service and talking with people who supposedly was speaking English, to find out that because they didn’t get their premium payment, they cancelled the insurance…… HUH ??? Wait a minute… the premium is auto-debited from my checking account~! Oh yes sir – they didn’t pull it. What? How come ? It doesn’t say here, we suspect there was a glitch in the ACH system. SOOooooo, you all botch the payment and I lose my insurance…. don’t hardly seem right does it? No sir it doesn’t, I think maybe I need to escalate your case. Ya think ???

There is so much more to this – and I’m already at my limit – so I think I’m gonna quit for tonight….. I’m starting to get ‘riled’ again and I don’t think my Queen wants me ‘riled’ again….. so – some random pictures for you since I didn’t take any new ones today~~

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~!!!! ;-)
