Movin’ Day………..

Got one of the better night’s sleep I’ve had in a while and even managed to sleep in a little bit. Well, that is if you consider almost 07:00 sleeping in…. I certainly do.  Walked out to a gorgeous blue sky, a light breeze and that wonderful view. It’s hard not to have a good day – even if you have to help somebody move….. which I did, when you start the day like that. Let me clarify, I didn’t ‘have’ to help him move – I volunteered, but that doesn’t make it any more fun.  I had just got good and woke up when he pinged me and gave me directions out to where he lives. He did not mention it was smack in the middle, on top of one of the taller mountains on the island. Thankfully he met me about halfway up the mountain and I followed him from there. Other than when I said “WOW” to myself when  I saw his view – the first thing I said when I got out of the truck was ” how in THE HELL did you ever find this place”? Long story – but it made sense. Small place, but it looked comfortable and a view to die for. In between hauling box springs, mattresses, shelves and grills – I did manage to snap a couple of pictures for you during my drives up and down that mountain. He is moving to Frederiksted, so I drove to the other end of the island a couple of times before we finally had all the items that would only fit in a truck. It was nice to have a little drive time and just let random thoughts bounce around in my head while I was driving. It took us to almost 13:30 to get the stuff hauled – but we got it. Not that I didn’t enjoy helping him out – but I was glad when my part of it was done.  😉

My Bride straightened up and cleaned around the house in anticipation of our Damn Neighbors coming in tonight while I was out. I got back, got my shower and cleaned up ‘my’ bathroom as well for the impending visit. ‘My’ bathroom is attached to the second bedroom. I  know my Damn Neighbors love me like family, but am positive they don’t love me enough to walk into or use my bathroom under normal conditions. We sat and enjoyed the A/C and watched some American Pickers. We finished NUMB3RS and haven’t picked a new series to start yet. My # 1 fan (Vera) has given me several recommendations to check out and I have them written down. We’ll probably start looking into them after we recover from the Damn Neighbor visit 😉

Gonna wrap it up here….. pix from today and some more from the dive the other day. Again– Blogs may be skimpy or not at all for the next several days. Cross your fingers and hope the best for us (and the island)

Good Night Ya’ll # # # # # # # # # Thankx for stopping in~!

Pictures do NOT do the view justice~

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~!!!! ;-)
