A little early again today~

Yet another miserable night’s sleep – -but I’m sure you’re about tired of hearing about it, so I’ll just hush…… Up early enough to get my morning stuff out of the way before heading up to Blues early this morning.  Jim uses old rum barrels from the local distillery as his ‘fuel’ for his smoker and his supply of cut up pieces was out. I help him out on occasions, cutting the barrels in half, knocking the rings off and then stacking the pieces for him. Not necessarily a tough job – but in brilliant sunlight and being an old fat out of shape guy, it didn’t take but about one barrel to have my shirt soaked in sweat….. and I did 6 more barrels after the first one. That job and my mess cleaned up and tools put away – I sat and had a couple of icy cold Budweiser’s while chatting with Jim. I finally came back to the condo for some A/C and a much needed shower.

Wasn’t to much later, Angie took off for an appointment to get her hair cut and then spend some time and have drinks with the woman who cut her hair. Gail is a friend of Angie and mine and Angie was her last customer before retiring from the hair cutting business and soon heading back to the states. Her husband Bob – is the guy I was helping up on their roof last week. Both very good people and we’re gonna hate to see them go~~ Leaving me here to my own devices while my Queen shops and drinks…… I figured I’d better get a little something up here because we have the appreciation dinner I mentioned last night, at 18:00 tonight up at Blues and I figure I will be either to tired or to hammered to write when we get back – so here I am….. I got most of the bills paid for next month, as we will be traveling and I want to make sure they get paid. We will be back in the states early next month and I don’t want to have to fool with that non-sense stuff like bill paying while we are there. Thank goodness for being able to schedule payments~!

Gonna quit here….. many more pictures from the dive yesterday…….

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~!!!! ;-)
