We’re baaaaack~~~!

Woooowee what a day……….We rousted out at 03:15 this morning to get ready for our day. Bags packed and at the airport by 04:45 for our 05:33 flight into Charlotte North Carolina – followed up immediately by a flight to Miami by 11:40. Finally… an airport with a smoking lounge….. that would be a big negatory there storm trooper, as we had JUST enough time to make our next flight to our beautiful little island. DAMMIT Emmit~! Amazingly….. all flights on time…some even gaining a few extra minutes and before we knew it., we were back on St. Croix~!!!  Woo-HooO~! It really did feel good to get here….. not just to be done with being packed into airplanes like sardines and the general headache that goes with traveling through airports…… but we got DD loaded and got out of the airport – and we just felt like we were ‘home’. Driving on the right [left] side of the road… the salt air….. it just felt ‘right’. Plans had been made long ago – that if we made it home on time, we would stop by Blues first. Never mind, the condo was going to feel like a sauna, and there were NO staples in the fridge (eggs, bacon, OJ, hash browns, etc.) Blues was the first order of the day………

We whipped in and had our drinks waiting for us when we walked up to the bar. “Cheers” ain’t got NUTHIN’ on this place. Lots of friends already there including our ‘island kids’ waiting on us. Didn’t take but a second for us to be there like we never left. More friends rolled in and more booze flowed and it just got louder and better as it went…….   what a great welcome home~~! With no big surprise.. we shut Blues down….I kept the where-with-all about me enough to stop by the store and pick up the essentials for tomorrow…. then back to our warm, musty smelling condo. Cranked the A/C down, had a smoke or two — chatted with our damn neighbors for a little bit and here I be……. in horrible need of a shower and some down time……. I’ll work on that tomorrow~~ I did manage a couple of pix today – but honestly don’t remember how many……. Yup – I’m back home…. too messed up to remember how many pictures I took today…. so we’ll see…….

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~!!!! ;-)
