Manual Labor

I’m so tired right now, there just aren’t words for it…… I have places on me that hurt that I forgot I had in my body. Working for a friend (Bob) helping with a project up at Blues while Jim and Deb are living the good life in the big easy. He told me he was going to work my a$$ off. He was not lying for this, the first day. I have 3 fingers/knuckles doctored and bandaged right now, which is making typing a real challenge~~ Wow~! He was not kidding, not even one little tiny iota~! To be fair, he is paying me a fair and decent wage….[and from my perspective] I earned every damned penny of it today. ( I would like to think he would agree with me) I “demo’ed” one big section of Blues bar seating area— and then helped with the setting up of the concrete forms. It doesn’t sound like much from this paragraph….. but butter my butt and call me a biscuit….. I’m whooped… I have already taken my first handful of Ibuprofin and sure another handful before I lay down for the night……… I’m gonna put up the pix I snapped during the course of the day today and call it quits for the night. Tomorrow is supposed to be a much shorter easier day….. guess we’ll see about that – I will try and get up at least a small blurb tomorrow.

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



Eddy even got in on some of the action

It looks MUCH worse than it actually was  🙂

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~!!!! ;-)
