What-what…..? We’re done painting~!!

Opting to skip the alarm clock – I rolled out again plenty early for the same ole reasons – thankfully my bride slept in. A nice relaxed morning before we finally made our way up to Blues for the finishing touches on our paint job~! After I got Angie started on her detail – I got up on the roof of the stage to exam it. Lord what a mess. I could tell from a high vantage point yesterday it needed some work – but had no idea it was in that bad of shape. I mixed up a sizable batch of roof coating and drug it, roller and bucket up on top. I also got a brush and broom as it turns out, it was in serious need of scraping. About 45 minutes of scraping, brushing and sweeping and it was ready to paint. I launched into it with gusto – briefly reliving the times I spent with my Dad up on roofs. It didn’t take much of that brilliant 86° sunshine beating down on me to remind me that I was no longer in my 20’s and could handle that temperature easily….. but I stayed at it until I was happy with the job I had done. After all, I can’t let our local entertainment get dripped on during one of our many little down pours~! Happy with the job, I got down, cleaned up my tools and put them away and went to help Angie finish up her last couple of little tasks that she had been working on. By Noon – we were finished~! Yay~!!! Can’t say I’m upset about being finally done with that job….. it was a very time consuming tedious job – but boy-0-boy does the place look pretty now. Already talking to Jim about painting the exterior of the stage – but I think that will be a job for when we get back from our trip stateside. We sat and had a couple of drinks and a wonderful Tuna salad wrap for lunch before finally gathering ourselves up and coming back to the land of soft couches and conditioned air~!

A  little while back a ‘little bird’ told me that my Queen has been wanting a new Play Station (why my Queen didn’t say something about it to me is beyond my comprehension- but I digress) Anyhow — as soon as I heard that – I jumped on line and toot-sweet had a PS4 heading toward us. We have had it here for the past several days now and my bride finally confessed she was ‘itching’ to use it. So, mildly intoxicated from sitting at Blues and now nursing a drink at the condo…. seemed like as good as time as any to get it set up~! <Shrinking the story> Multiple grunts and groans to get down and around the TV stand – some mild swearing — it is now set up and my bride has been happily engrossed in her game for the last 3+ hours or so. (Believe it or not – she was quite the gamer before we left the states) Now I won’t feel as bad when I leave her to go make a dive(s) and leave her sitting here. Some pictures from today and then a shower…….

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

(Happy Anniversary Big Sis ~!)  ((Ela & Dan))


My Queen is gaming again~! (Yea, I know – you can’t see anything on the TV – but trust me – it’s there~!)

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~!!!! ;-)
