Home Depot and Blues~

I think I stated earlier that I did not plan anything for this week…. just wanted to relax and live the “retired” life……. well so far that hasn’t worked out some good~ Got up this morning and stumbled out to heavy clouds and wind….. I say stumbled out because my night’s sleep left a lot to be desired. While I love having my Queen laying next to me at night, that woman can sure make it difficult for a feller to get a decent nights sleep sometimes…… course, I’m fairly sure she’d say the same thing about me, so I’ll leave it right here. We both spent a little extra time on news, FB and odds & ends while we woke up. The decision was made to go to Home Depot and pick up the rest of the stuff we needed to finish our fence job up at Blues. Of course, this miserable excuse for a Home Depot store didn’t have what I needed. I tried to have them order it in – and they said they could, but I would have to go down to the port when it came in and pay the freight on it before I could pick it up. I said that was pretty silly, when I can order it from my house and have it shipped to me at my house and avoid that disaster area that they call a port. She agreed and I walked off…. pathetic~! While we were there, I walked by the outdoor furniture section. I am unhappy with the looks of our [relatively] new patio furniture. It is made of metal and that salt is reeking havoc with it. I did think about it when I bought it but figured since it was powder coated, it would be alright. Well sir – I guess that’s what I get for thinking~! This close to the water and the amount of sea spray we get – most metals don’t stand a chance – I don’t care how their coated~! I have since learned, environment like our patio – require wood (ding, ding, ding ((bells going off)) that’s why most beach places have wicker furniture!!!! Duh~~~!! They had a really nice set on display and before we knew it – we had talked ourselves into getting it. Besides the way our current furniture looks – it also leeches large ugly rust stains onto the floor. We can’t have our visitors looking at that~! We ain’t real shot in the a$$ about it either. So – new furniture purchased and hauled back. It is currently still in boxes on the patio now – while I try and get rid of current stuff, then get the rust stains cleaned up [again~!].

We stopped at Blues on our way back for a bite to eat (we skipped breakfast) and a drink or 6. Finally came back to our condo an afternoon of In Plain Site on our miniature theatre. We never did get any rain (to speak of) and most of the day was our usual gorgeous weather. No new pictures…. so some more oldies but goodies…….

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~!!!! ;-)
