Gettin’ around……….

Following that first day out of the hospital and dinner with friends – A sponge bath and a semi fitful nights sleep – we were up the next day, ready to tackle the next list of appointments. We first stopped off at one of my Sisters house – only to leave without seeing her. She apparently was in a sleep coma and didn’t hear us knocking – even though that little rat dog of hers was barking it’s brains out.  We took off for our next destination. Back in our old stomping grounds, Hysteric New Harmony. Town has not changed a bit other than a new Dollar General store since I left almost 2 years ago. Other than look around a little bit – the purpose of the visit was to stop and see my # 1 Blog fan….. Mrs. Vera Johnson. We have been neighbors [of sorts] for years and her husband Choppy had been a co-worker at GE and a friend many, many years.  Vera writes to me a lot via my blog (and some FB) and keeps me up on the goings on around town. A delightful woman with a smile that lights up any room and you just have to love her. We chatted almost an hour before we had to excuse ourselves and head off for the next ‘appointment’. I could not make it back after being gone that long without stopping by to give my # 1 fan a hug and to chat a bit.

Left Vera’s and went back to my Sisters house and finally roused her from her slumber. We spent a little over an hour with her, talking about island life and everything going on her life before we had to pack up and move along. Our next appointment got bumped out a little bit, so we swung out past Jeni’s house and scored a little bit of time with new baby Kinsley and Jeni.  Time came to again pack up and head off for our next ‘appointment’. This one was with another Sister and her husband. we met them at a little place on a barge on the Mighty Ohio river. We had drinks and some eats and sat and chatted for almost 2 hours before I wore completely out and had to head to head back to the hotel. This whole heart attack thing is taking it’s toll on me some. The bruising is what’s doing it. It has now crept into crotch (and all the things there) and is now about a fourth of the way down my leg. I did some home work on it an found out it really is not that uncommon – but now reaching into new ‘areas’…. sure does make it painful if I move my leg a little bit wrong~! Rest easy though – I’m not putting up any more pictures of it unless it just gets plumb out of control. It’s kinda weird to see that and know that – that is you in the mirror when you’re looking at it.

Well damn Sam.…. already at my limit again — I have got my pictures out of whack with my writing….. most of what I talked about tonight – you saw the pictures of yesterday….. and it’ll have to stay that way again – cause tonight’s pictures are what I took today even though I talked about yesterday tonight~! Clear as mud huh?

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~!!!! ;-)

    1. Hi Vera — I talked about my heart attack – I just put up the “edited” version…… really wasn’t that big of a deal to me….. guess I should know better. I am back on meds and fit as a fiddle now – so please do not worry about me. You get YOU healed up~! If Doc gave you a steroid – be thankful – they don’t dole that out very often and will usually knock the socks off of whatever is getting you down.
      No worries about the boys, I thought they were both very well behaved while we were there. I hope you get feeling better soon so you can get out and enjoy this nice cool weather. It won’t be long before it is that nasty sticky stuff.
      Take care of yourself~!
