And away we go…………

Finally made it into the EVV terminal…… first thing to do – well smoke a cigarette of course~! Shame on those nasty ole airlines making us nasty smokers go that long without polluting our lungs~! Once we got that out of the way – we gathered our luggage (which amazingly made it) and headed for the Alamo counter to pick up our vehicle……. only to find it was closed~! This day just keeps getting better and better. A small note on their counter directed us to another rental agency. After filling out more paperwork than I did when I enlisted and 30 minutes later, we were finally on our way out of Dress Regional. I went with Alamo because they were the only rental agency that advertised having a Chevy Silverado pick up truck (my vehicle of choice)….. That is, of course, if they had one in the lot when we got there~! Also if you pay close attention – the ad says Chevy Silverado or similar vehicle………… and of course…. they didn’t have one…..rotten so & so’s tried to give me a Ford~! Oh HELL no…….. I settled for a Dodge Ram….. nice looking truck, brand spanking new – (2300 miles) and still had the ‘new car smell’ to it. It is a gorgeous Black – so I wasn’t completely upset….. got a big ole Hemi in it and runs like a striped a$$ ape~! A little digging revealed that this particular Alamo doesn’t have any Chevy trucks in it’s inventory~! Bast*rds….. I’ll take that up on Trip Advisor and let them know what I think about it. Got the truck loaded and away we went. A little bit ‘odd’ driving on the right side of the road for me now….. but it came back to me fairly quickly  (We drive on the left side of the road in St. Croix). Over the past several days – I occasionally have to think out loud before I pull in or out of a parking lot or road – but for the most part, staying on the right.

We had a birthday party for our 4 year old Grandson Colt to get to, and since Delta loused us up once again — we had just enough time to drop our bags off at the hotel (thankfully that went smooth) and high tail it to Posey County for the Birthday party. We were fashionably late and I’m sure we looked like open a$$ after having been up for almost 36 hours, no sleep, unshaven, sweaty and worn out. You sure couldn’t tell it though when we walked in the door. We were instantly smothered with hugs and kisses from Daughters, Son-in-Laws and Grand babies. A pretty great feeling~! We chatted and watch kids playing in the sprinklers and had a grand ole time. We did that for a little over three hours before we finally had to bid adieu…….. After all – we had a new Grand baby to go see yet. We loaded back into the truck and was off – back to Vanderburgh county to the West side of Evansville.

Well crap…. at my limit again already….. it’s already 10:00pm here and I’m pooped from a long day….. so a couple of pictures I snapped today….. more tomorrow as I try to catch up.

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~!!!! ;-)
