Woo-wee what a day………

Got to sleep in a bit this morning… no alarm set, just able to enjoy the feeling of no commitment to get up at any certain time. A hand full of Aspirin about an hour before bed and a handful of Ibuprofen about 02:00 made for a fairly decent nights sleep with minimal aches and pains. I still woke up slightly before 06:00 (old habits die hard) but felt amazingly refreshed. My right hand hurt more than I cared for and was swollen a little more than I expected, but I suspicion that came from shooting almost 2000 staples the previous day.  (As I type this right now, the swelling is almost gone.) Course rubbing it and popping aspirin most of the day might have helped. Our day was mostly casual as we took our time waking up and catching up with news from the past day or so. We had to do a laundry run (that or start turning our underwear inside out) – we got that done fairly early and returned to the condo. My Bride made us a wonderfully delicious breakfast and we spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch watching the idiot box. As it turns out, we finished The Unit without realizing it – and, according to us – a really stupid way to end a season…. so the afternoon was filled with silly movies and just checking stuff out. We watched one older movie and didn’t realize another neighbor of ours was a “star” in the show (that would be you Vera – see pix for explanation).  😉

Soon came time to go collect our laundry, which we did and of course, had to stop by Blues and welcome Deb and Jim back home to the island. A pretty good crowd at the bar to welcome the place being opened back up and ‘one or two’ drinks rapidly turned into too many to count. So many good folks up there to welcome Jim and Deb back and to catch up with~! It soon got close to last call, so we opted to load up and head back to our nice cool condo. Apparently during the course of the evening, I apparently volunteered – or was volunteered – to help a friend move a newly purchased recliner, [that night] – we barely got back to the condo and I started in on this, when I got a ping to say we are ready to move said recliner….. If I am nothing else – I am a man of my word, so I dutifully jumped into the truck and took off to help friend move the recliner. Turned out it wasn’t that big (but still required a truck) and they didn’t live far, so really wasn’t a big deal for me, unless you factor in being about 3/4 plowed. Anyhow – recliner moved and I’m back safe and sound chatting with you. My Queen having hit her limit “early” is now in bed while I try and finish this….. I think I have pictures…..

Good Night Ya’ll ………………. Thankx for stopping in~!

I had a ‘supervisor’ on my part of the fence~~!

“Famous” neighbor~~ <3

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~!!!! ;-)

  1. Place looks great,,,fence awesome,,, do you want me to send you some Porters Salve? Smells like heck, but will cure any wound, ache etc,,Chop even put on toe nails each night to keep from getting so brittle, although still used drumell on them. Trust me, if you grew up Robb Twp,,,, Stewartsville,,,,,Porters Salve kept us alive,,,agree crazy ending,, for Unit, but think t reason I liked, liked the stories and the acting was good, some of these shows, acting so bad
    Re,, Pensacola ,, Burn Notice had good ending, and White Collar which you might find fun, I did, had best ending I have ever seen in any series end . Glad you enjoyed my movie, Blue Skies, assume you saw Mathew Pruitt died, so sad, graduated with Louie, think having foot surgery and threw a clot,,, Yep, life is a privilege,,,a song I heard once by some up and coming singers,,,have a great week end, hope you find a good chocolate Easter egg and some peeps,,,my favorite, Happy Easter,,love to both,,❤️❤️

    1. Thank you for the kind words… we put a lot of work into the fence and are quite proud of the way it looks – Deb and Jim love it~! I have my own little collection of salves and stuff I use for wounds and sore muscles – but thank you anyway~~ 😉 I have added White collar to the list and will check it out – right now really busy with ‘odds & ends’ and not watching a lot of TV for the time being. I did hear about Mathew – I did not know him but sad for anybody that young to pass away. Doing a 2 tank dive tomorrow morning (Easter) – not sure what the rest of the day holds in store. Have been invited to a Beach Buffet by a bunch of friends…. I may go check that out. Love hearing from you~~
