Laundry and K-Mart

After a fairly decent night’s sleep (even though my Queen said I was running a marathon in my sleep ((I think she’s nuts))) I rolled out to partly cloudy skies yet another beautiful sunrise…. even though I did not get a picture of this one…. I enjoyed almost an hour of quiet before my Bride joined me in the world of the awake……… The plan for today, was to get the laundry dropped off (we had several weeks worth plus ‘guests’ sheets and towels to get done) and then head up to Blues for some work on the fence. NOT~! By the time we got good and started, it was entirely too late to contend with fence stuff – so we gathered up said laundry and headed out. We pulled in to an empty parking lot at our preferred laundry, which means only one thing – they were closed. That’s a new piece of intel there….. so we cut across island to another laundry we use for just such occasions. We dropped off almost 50 lbs. of laundry and was told we could pick it up by 17:00 (5pm for all you civilians out there). We decided we needed to go to K-mart and pick up some better curtains for our second bedroom, as the current ones didn’t block out much sunlight. We made it across island to our preferred K-Mart (there is actually 2 of them on the island) and picked up black out curtains (so guest can sleep late if they prefer), I got me a new high fa-lootin’ towel for my shower (current towel only gets me about half dried off -so I have to stand in front of a fan to finish drying off~!) and a couple of other odds and ends (which included Ho-Hos and Twinkies) before we checked out and headed back to mid-island. Neither of us had breakfast, so we figured we stop and have a bite  at our favorite ‘watering hole’ – and possibly a drink or six. (It was closer to six) We wound up back at the condo cooling off and waiting before we could go get our laundry….. which we finally did. On the drive back to the condo – we figured we better stop by Blues and make sure everything was okay there (after all – it had been a couple of hours since we were there~!). So we stopped, had a couple of drinks or six, before finally winding up  back here. I guess I have accepted an invitation to swat some golf balls around tomorrow morning……. That ought to be a hoot ( I don’t “golf”)…. but if nothing else, I should be able to score a couple of nice pictures for you.

Until then, I’m gonna put up some pictures from Nelia and Jamie’s visit I don’t think you seen yet.

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~!!!! ;-)
