Hey fellow peoples……

After rolling out extra early today and going up for a long day of painting… we finished one big segment of fence up at Blues…. damn it looks nice~! Afterwards, we sat and had a couple of drinks…… OH Okay…. 3 or 4 drinks…… but both decided we wanted to go home and get a shower…… yes, it’s Winter here, but sitting in 85° weather, you sweat….. yea, yea, yea, poor pitiful us ;-). We were dirty and tired and headed back for some A/C and a shower. My Bride was in the mood for a steak – so we agreed to head back up for a steak after 5:00 – standard fare for Blues on a Thursday – steak after 5:00. We had a drink and my bride got her steak – and even by my standards was a damn fine looking [and tasting] steak. I [believe it or not] didn’t have much of an appetite – so I opted to drink my dinner. I did after all have me a mighty fine Turkey Bacon Ranch sammich for lunch~! The night quickly evolved into a typical night at Blues — good friends, good music ( JJ – Jason Jones – the guy that does the killer Johnny Cash) was the entertainment for the evening. Didn’t take long at all before Eddy was calling last call and it was time to pay the bill and get the hell out~!! Met a new friend tonight – Karen, retired Air Force and I spent most of the evening rehashing a lot of things most people would find boring – but it’s nice to talk the same “language” to someone who understands it.

Back here now….. we have decided to take some time off from painting at Blues….. we’re taking tomorrow and the weekend off to sleep in, have a big breakfast and take it easy — we are retired after all~! We are gonna spend a day or two helping a dear friend get her office fixed up the way she wants…. so will probably be a week before we get back to painting up at Blues again. We have had a request added to the painting detail which will add probably add an extra day -or two – but really looking forward to it. I love working around that place to help spruce it back up. So I’m gonna quit here, share the pictures I’ve got from today and we’ll see what tomorrow brings~~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
