Golfin’ and time with friends……….

Up bright and early again after a decent night sleep. I bought a new pillow at K-Mart the other day and I think it helped – but still not what I’m after. I’m thinking about ordering one of those ‘My Pillows‘ that I have seen on TV. Have any of you ever tried one ? Please leave me a comment if you have and if you like it, as I don’t think I’m gonna be happy with the one I bought. My Bride followed me out after a half hour or so and we both set about waking up. It soon came time for me to leave to meet Bob on the road to the Carambola Resort. We met and after traversing ‘The Beast’ were soon at the resort. Pretty place, well maintained and looks like it would be expensive to live there. We were there to hit some golf balls. Now as I stated last night – I do not ‘golf’….. but we weren’t playing, we were going to hang out on the driving range. I was using some clubs Bob brought along. Now let me just say, these clubs have seen some use…. but we weren’t there to set records….. well, I wasn’t there, to set records. We had a lot of fun, taking turns watching each other swatting at golf balls then critiquing each others hit with maybe a small bull session between each attempt (apparently Bob is not a golfer either) but we were having a good time. After about 30 minutes of that nonsense, Greg showed up to join us. Apparently Greg is a golfer…. or at least wants to be one. He had a full set of [clean, usable, nice looking] clubs, golf shoes and did ‘golf’ kind of things, like clean the head of the clubs and stuff…… Rest of the morning took on a more serious note but was still a lot of fun, spending time with these guys. I openly, freely and proudly admit – I SUCK at hitting golf balls – but I own that and still had a lot of fun. Curious what new pains I get to discover in the morning from that little venture.

Back at the condo and taking it easy with my Queen, finishing up the 5th season of NUMB3RS, the electricity went off for (according to Angie) the 2nd time of the day, so we went and smoked and came back in to electricity back on, so settled back in to our show, just to have the electricity go off again…. and again and then again, only this time, after 30 minutes, it was still not back on. We heard that the outage this time was island wide, so we decided to head up to Blues for drinks and dinner as they have a backup generator that actually works….. unlike the PoS that services this condo.

Up at Blues we settled in at the bar and soon had cold drinks in our hands. About half way through my first drink, I got a call from friends Cynthia and Shawn….. Dammit, at my limit already….. I’ll pick this up tomorrow…. some pictures from today….. Doctors appointment for my Queen tomorrow (shouldn’t be anything serious)

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~!!!! ;-)
