Spring cleaning

After a pretty typical morning – we did our version of Spring cleaning here (even though it was 85° for most of the day) – Well, Spring cleaning and getting ready for Lil Sis & BFF visit……!   I moved all of our patio furniture out on to the outer patio, did a good sweeping, then broke out the Ospho acid and set in cleaning up all the rust spots we had accumulated from our metal furniture. An hour later, I had the rust cleaned up, the area mopped and went out for a coat of mop and glow. I’m hoping that will help seal the floor a little better – I figure it ain’t gonna make it any worse. I ‘mopped’ my way out to the outer patio where all the new furniture had been moved to previously and began to assemble out new furniture. Yes – some assembly was required……. actually a lot of assembly was required. But I dutifully sat and assembled for another hour and a half while my mop and glow dried. Timing actually worked out pretty good. We now have a nice clean [rust free] patio floor and brand new patio furniture for all to enjoy. While I regaled you of this in less than 200 words – it sure seemed like a lot more while actually doing it. I’m still waiting on the young lady that wants our old furniture to come get it – so I can haul all the boxes off (that the old furniture is sitting on – I don’t want rust stains out there) and be fully finished~

Came in to cool off, have a drink and watch some more Numb3rs. We are starting to warm up to that show, but a dear friend has recommended several other series she thinks we’ll like – so I can’t wait to check them out (Thankx Vera~!)  My Queen whooped up some breaded porkchops and smashed taters and green beans. Tasty as always~! Belly is full, a couple more drinks in me and I’m ready for a nap…… got to get a shower first though – so leaving it here. A little bit of running tomorrow, so no tellin’ where we wind up at.

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~!!!! ;-)
