Gearin’ up……….

Both of us up a little early this morning…… even though I didn’t make into bed until Midnight last night. My Queen was tired and wandered off to bed around 9:00 or so – I opted to stay up and catch another episode or two of House of Cards. Really good show starring Kevin Spacey about the goings on and no-goodnik’s in the political scene around Washington D.C. I finally made it into bed though but still rolled out when my Bride got up a little before 07:00 this morning. Had our usual morning routine…. managed to keep electricity and internet the entire morning – which is newsworthy in of itself.

Around noon, I settled in at the laptop to start work on taxes for Fish With A Vet. Even though I was fairly meticulous about my record keeping for the organization this year…. I still had to go through and break out contributions, office supplies, and another 6 or so categories. I worked on it until about 4:00pm when I finally finished the first draft of it. Got it polished up a little bit and in the mail to our accountant. Now I just have to wait for what I hope is a very small barrage of questions from him.

Happily done with taxes – I joined my Queen on the couch for more of the idiot box…… quietly going through my mind, while I watch….. thinking about what all we have in front of us for the next couple of weeks. Our day starts out tomorrow by going out West to sign the lease on our new place. I suspect [if] once that is done, we’ll stop by WAPA, which is the very FUBAR’d equivalent of your Vectren and get the electricity turned on in our new place. Provided that goes as planned (and I seriously have my doubts) we’ll then run out to Home Depot and pick out appliances and whatever they have that we need. IF….. and that is a huge IF – we get that far, we need to stop by the store and replenish some stuff…. milk, eggs…. heaven forbid TOILET PAPER… because we are almost out….. from what I’m hearing most of the people on the island are acting like they have a little bit of sense and not hoarding it [yet]. If we managed to get that far – I’m sure dealing with that many island folks all day – I’m gonna be ready to come back and have one or six drinks…… at least. Keep your fingers crossed for me…… I haven’t heard back from my tax lady yet and tomorrow I’m gonna need all the help I can get.

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~!!!! ;-)
