Getting back to getting busy……

After a presentable night’s sleep – got up and got going much earlier than usual. Ran out to the West end of the island to look at a list of things the fine folks at Gecko Island Adventures are wanting done to their office. There are a couple I promised to get to quick as they need to be done. Connecting the drain to the sink and stopping water from coming in when it rains. They also want a porch added to the front of the office – but that project will be a bit yet. I got all the measurements I needed while my Queen chatted with the owner (Cynthia). We finally loaded up and headed back – stopping at The Home Depot. That particular task usually infuriates me – but I got everything I needed for the first two projects and this visit went mostly smooth and we left without me wanting to throat punch somebody – so that’s a win~!

Neither of us had eaten yet, so we stopped by Blues. Angie had some wings while I tried out the Chicken, Bacon, Cheese, & Guacamole sammich. My sammich was tasty but I like the turkey better~~ We sat and chatted for a bit before coming back to our wonderful conditioned air here in the condo. I did a little pre-work for my project tomorrow and then went for a refreshing cool shower. (It also helped perk me up a bit as I was starting to drag coming down off the alcohol) My Bride is gaming and appears to be ‘in to it‘ – so I thought I’d go ahead and get my blog done while she plies her strategy to the game.

Chatted with my baby Sister who apparently had some complications of her own with her heart (I think she’s just trying to keep up with me)  😉 and discussed our impending visit. Her oldest Son is getting married in early September and we’re flying in for the wedding.   May have to whoop me up another sammich as lunch is starting to wear off…. maybe a nice cold beer with it~~ Dunno~~ Maybe a couple more episodes of PYSCHED…. I watched several episodes last night after Angie went to bed — It’s starting to grow on me……

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

I tried to zoom in on om – but the camera shakes so bad – pictures sucked
I finally started easing up to him since he didn’t seem to mind
He finally had his fill of me and took off~~

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~!!!! ;-)
