Realllllly ??

Started out bright and early this morning in anticipation of running an errand for a friend. Waiting to take off – we went out for our first morning smoke to discover a new set of turtle tracks. A big Green Sea turtle. I’m fairly sure she laid eggs, but sadly, destroyed another nest in the process. Eggs were scattered everywhere. Some of them had not been destroyed yet – but because of laying out in the cool night air all night – they are no longer savable. I guess that is Natures natural selection and not a heckva lot we can do about it…. at least, not at this point.  We had to drive out to the West end of the island to do the errand. Did errand for friend, stopped by one of our favorite dive shops to share some details on a project they are doing that we are helping them with next week. Wrapped that up and decided a bite to eat would be a good thing – so stopped by a local favorite eatery (Polly’s) for a quick tasty breakfast. Got back to the condo for some much needed heat relief…… it is ridiculous hot here this time of year….. the temperature really don’t get any hotter – but our wonderful trade wind lays down for just over a month or so and it gets an ugly sticky hot~~~ I really feel for the poor souls that do not have conditioned air……..

I spent the next several hours on a couple of small tasks I needed to get done while we both sat here and sucked up as much of that wonderfully cool air as we could. Wrapping up the odds and ends – My Queen wanted to go up to Blues as her favorite [island] band was playing tonight. I was game as my breakfast had worn completely off and Blues was advertising a smoked meatloaf sammich that I was anxious to try. Walked out to DD 2.0 an noticed something shiny on the front tire as I got in……HMmmmmm…. turned out to be a damn screw in the tire~! Jeezus H Christ~!! I dropped my Queen off at Blues and set out in search of tire repair.  Found a spot fairly quickly, that amazingly did a good job and got me back on my way to Blues…….. Saddled up to the bar with my Queen and got me a smoked meatloaf sammich as I was starving by then…… different….. not bad – but didn’t really care for it that much – which is odd, cause I usually love everything they make. I think, if the piece of meat would have been thicker and a little bigger – it would have made a better sammich. Angie got her some meatloaf, but it was served open faced with smashed taters and gravy – and she said she really enjoyed it. I Ordered me a hot dog with pickle and onion and washed it down with a couple of bears ( a Budweiser and a Modelo…. a new beer Blues is pushing, so I thought I’d try it….. not bad, but not Budweiser~~) After dinner, we ordered cocktails and sat and listened to the band, who just did not seem on point tonight. Don’t know if it was the heat, a different drummer or what. We chatted with everyone for a couple of hours and decided we’d had out fill of heat….. so back we came and here we be. I have a 2-tank dive scheduled for tomorrow afternoon…woo-hoo~! So lots more pictures for you~~!

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~!!!! ;-)
