Thursday the 7th…………

Wow…… today went exactly 180° from where I would have ever thought….. it’s now 9:45 p.m. here which is 7:45 where most of you are at……. I’m sitting here at my ‘command center‘ just about as sh*t faced as I want to be…… funny how a day winds up like that, cause it is certainly not how it started off~!  I got up ‘late’ (07:30ish) and started my day…… my Queen came staggering out a couple of hours later…. we sat and drank coffee and woke up for the next couple of hours. The night before was not an alcohol induced night, but we did stay up late watching Mary and Marshal on In Plain Site. We are now into Season # 4 – because I know at least one of my readers is watching about where we are – I won’t go into what happens  but Vera – whoa – are you in for a surprise~!

Anyhow – we finally set out for the shop where I need some work done on DD – got estimates and paid for materials and then set out for the South side of the island to the local Social Security office. On the advice of my ‘tax lady’ – I set both of our accounts to have 10% deducted from our meager Social Security payments, so we don’t get our collective a$$e$  handed to us on April 15th of next year….. Now just how bad does that suck???? We paid taxes on that money when we earned it – and now have to pay taxes on it again??? Good old “Uncle” has to get his….. apparently a couple of times~! We left from there and stopped at Blues on the way back, as we had once again skipped breakfast. It was now 1:30p.m. ish and we were both hungry. We sat down and had a drink or two then ordered us something to eat. Got it -wolfed it down and was soon wrapped up into conversations with many good people there at the bar. The entertainment for the night showed up, set up and soon started playing. The night wore on and got increasingly busier as it went. I told the bar tender I was ‘there’ and ready to help if he needed it. He did not hesitate to start barking out what he needed. For the next 30-45 minutes, I bar backed to help Eddie catch up a little bit. By that time I was pretty much toasted, but managed to hold my own while Eddie needed help. The entertainment finally shut down and we helped hustle the remaining folks out of the back yard (“You don’t have to go home – but you can’t stay here”).  Helped clean up and shut the bar down, before gathering up my bride and heading back here. Right now – it’s all I can do to sit here and type. ( I have already rested my head for a quick nap once) With that information….. I bid you adieu…… the night was a whole lot more fun – but I’m just too tired to tell you about it now~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
