Ready to sail…. minus sausage~~

Up a hellva lot earlier this morning than I planned after not getting to sleep until 01:30 this morning. Woke a LOT earlier than I planned but very happily with almost zero aches and pains. I didn’t get a lot of sleep, but what I got was some of that ‘good’ sleep. Took it pretty easy today, sprucing the place up a bit and starting packing plans for our trip. Errands and odds and ends out of the way – we went up to Blues for a “couple” of drinks and to bid adieu for the next week…….. what a wonderful, wonderful bunch of folks that hang out at that place. We left after last call and I had a hankering for some Mickey D’s – so we headed down to the local place……. good Lord almighty what a cluster f**k……… 8 minutes just to get to the speaker to place our order and then 18 minutes to the pickup window (that is actually fairly quick for this location).  Course we didn’t find out about the order being mostly wrong until after we got back here…. I’m not gonna go into the details but ~!@#$%^&*IOP{POIU&Y^%$#@Q what an experience~! I lit them up on their survey web site – course, I usually do, but it doesn’t change anything….. still makes me feel a [[little]] bit better when I b*tch about it though……….

I wanted to get you a paragraph or two tonight and a couple of pictures I snapped while sitting up at Blues……. want to make sure you know – we take off tomorrow morning for a 7 day sail boat cruise around the British Virgin Islands and there is an above average chance, I will probably not have enough signal to get a phone call let alone be able to post anything on here. My plan is to take my lap top and do a blog each night (if I’m sober enough) on a word document – then copy and paste it when I get back to internet capability…… so please don’t give up on me….  We are going to be living aboard a 42′ catamaran sailboat sailing ( ) around some of the most gorgeous waters on the planet…… rest assured – I’m going to have a LOT of pictures by the time we get back to share with you……… So thankx for stopping in tonight and look forward to pictures that will almost guarantee to make you hate me when you look at them…….   😉

Good Night Ya’ll ……… Smooth sailing [hopefully]…. I’ll see you in a week or so~~

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~!!!! ;-)
