June the One~th……………

Wow….. June already……May screamed by~! We will be back in Indiana a week from today. As you probably remember…. we have grand baby # 9 on the way~! Those in the know say it is a little girl and if that proves to be true – her name will be Kinsley Ray. I am tickled to death Jeni is having a little girl….. she needs one…. so does her husband Michael…… hehehehe…. It will be fun watching that~~ We will stay 2 weeks and try to get in 4 weeks worth of stuff in while we are there. It has been entirely too long since I have seen my girls and I’m long over due to give them all hugs.

Really quiet slow day today after a less than stellar nights sleep. A$$ hat never showed up and I finally faded off to sleep. Leisurely morning as I waited to find out who was [still] in my parking slot. I did a little bit of deducing and finally decided, it was our new neighbors. Charley and Vickey…. nice couple just got in yesterday. They had been out grocery shopping and came back to find their slot filled and not knowing any better, just parked in mine. He finally caught up to me and my suspicions were confirmed. I can’t really get mad at him, as he really didn’t know any better. His wife had apparently went out earlier and put a very nice note on the windshield of DD apologizing. I explained the process to him, so I think we’re good now as far as they are concerned.

Rest of the day was TV, smoking and reading. I am now into my second of three books that I ordered. This one is Mrs. Kennedy and Me. Actually a lot more interesting than I would have thought. First one was Five Days in November. That was outstanding~!! The third one is called Five Presidents. All three books are written by a Secret Service agent (Clint Hill). He led what is apparently an amazing life. The books [so far] are very well written and have some great photographs in them. One of the most famous photographs ever taken was when president Kennedy was shot – in that picture, there is a Secret Service agent crawling up over the rear of the car trying to cover the President and First lady using his body as a shield. That agent is Clint Hill. Even now I am getting goose bumps as I remember what I read about the event (Five Days in November) I highly recommend that book. While I was only 7 years old when that happened, I can vividly recall where I was in the house – and seeing my Mom break down in tears when she heard the news. Amazing what sticks in your mind……

Slow news day – so gonna quit here….. no new pictures – so I’ll dig up some from a year or so ago for ya~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
