The day after Easter Monday

Well I found out that apparently – Easter Monday is an island thing -AND – it came about as a way to get an extra day off of work. Ahhhh…. island life. I got up a touch earlier than I wanted to this morning…. but I had a project at up at Blues I needed to finish. Been a while in the making and since the rest of my week [mornings] are tied up with SCUBA diving – I figured I better ‘Git-er-done’~! I got up there a little after 08:00 and spent the next 2 hours pain stakingly running thread thin lights around a small charcoal grill mounted on the roof of Blues’ bar. Deb had asked for that a lot longer ago than I want to admit – but I finally got it finished this morning. I tried to make sure they worked, but the sun was just so brilliant (aweee) that I could not tell if the lights were working. So I sat and had me 1 or 4 ice cold Budweiser’s before heading back to the condo. I was waiting to hear from the ‘door dude’ or the expeditor for DD, but neither of them happened – so I wound up laying on the couch and watch some really stupid movies…. SO stupid, I won’t even bore you with the details of them.

It got to be 17:00 and I really wanted to see what my ‘light job’ on the grill looked like – so I headed back up to Blues. The usual gang was there ( including returnee – Mr. Paul Blair) and I was soon emerged into the standard line of rhetoric going around the bar. Eddie was just starting to close the bar down when all of the dusk to dawn lights came on….. I ran out and looked up and YES~!!! – the grill was lit up and looked every bit as awesome as I hoped it would~! (Yes – there are pictures) Happy with my work – I had another drink with Jim and Dave and then loaded up into DD to head back here. I can’t wait for Deb to see the grill, as I believe it is exactly what she was wanting~!

For now – I’m gonna leave you with more dive pictures and a couple of pictures from today —

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~!!!! ;-)
