Another ‘last day of work’~~~

Rolled out this morning barely beating the alarm, after crashing fairly early last night due primarily to alcohol consumption…. Made a bit of a breakfast and scurried out the door for our last day of ‘work’ as our island kids that own the 4-wheeler business were due back on island this afternoon.

One couple didn’t show for the first tour – which meant I had to sit out (I only go on tours with 3 or more machines). After we got the first tour on the way – I cleaned up a couple of machines and then sat and waited. Second tour was only supposed to be 1 machine – but I thought folks that missed first tour may show and I’d get to ride the second tour. Didn’t happen, so I cleaned remaining machines, topped them all off with gas and parked them over in the garage. I then strolled ‘downtown’ to the local dive shops and chatted with friends I knew there and looked around to see if there was anything I had to have. Nope – I’m good….. but it was fun chatting up dive buddies that I bumped into.

Business closed up for the day, we dropped the ‘kid’s’ car off at the airport and came back to once again enjoy retirement. I ran off a small quick load of laundry while my Queen cooked up a batch of Spaghetti big enough to kill a buffalo. In all fairness – I gave it the ole college try….. but had to stop about 4 fork fulls from finishing. I could have forced it in – but afraid it was gonna come right back out, so in the interest of not cleaning up – I gave up and admitted defeat. Smack my mouth that was some good eatin’! In a bit of an eating coma, I laid back on the couch and watched some Longmire – albeit through closed eye lids for a bit. It’s almost embarrassing how full I am……..

Down day tomorrow to wrap up everything with the island kids and prepare to get the place cleaned up for Stephanie and the boys……. It’ll be a tough couple of days, but SOOOO looking forward to it~!!! I may even have to try and sneak in a dive or two in the middle of all that~~;-)  Gonna stop here, couple of pictures from today and some more pictures from the pier I don’t think I’ve shared yet……

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~!!!! ;-)
