Some days~~~~

UUGGHHhhhh….. ya know…. there are just some days a feller ought to just keep his touchas in bed…… for me, today was probably one of those days.  Up a smidge earlier than I wanted to be, to answer natures call….. but not terrible. Got up, did my thing and walked out onto the patio into a breeze you had to brace yourself against. Because the sun was just getting started on the way up, the day hadn’t started to warm up yet and even though it was around 76° – I shuddered a little bit against the cool wind as I accept the fact I must be becoming more acclimated and in that little sense more of an islander. I finished my morning cigarette and went in to sit down at the lap top and get caught up on the latest craziness that is the Coronavirus……. I am seriously tired of hearing that word and all that bad puns that are going along with it now……. Caught up on the news and was enjoying the quiet I am afforded while my Queen is still in bed asleep, when the phone rings…… it is my new landlord to be. She tells me she needs to move this mornings meeting out to Wednesday morning…….. I politely say I look forward to seeing her then and hang up. DAMMIT EMMIT~!!!  I wanted to scream and beat on the table, because that just shortens the time even more that we have to get moved into our new place…… but I didn’t…… I didn’t want to wake my Queen up, so I sat and quietly fumed~~~~~

Shortly after my Queen came stumbling out….. emails started popping in from my tax lady. My files were loaded and ready to look at. I logged into my account and opened the file I knew would have my tax return in it……. tie me to an ant hill and smother my ears in jelly~!!! WOW……. because of some financial decisions we made early last year….. I knew I was going to get my hands slapped from Uncle Sam on my taxes….. but OOUUCCHHHhhh~! Almost as much as the back taxes we had to deal with last year…. Dammit Emmit~! A very expensive lesson learned, but not a hellva lot we can do about it, but pay it and make sure it don’t happen again.

Since we didn’t head out West – decided to take silver DD up to the body shop to see about getting a small under panel replaced on the truck (to up the selling price). We have the piece that was popped off – but the body guy said he can’t use it because to many clip brackets were broken off….. ordering a new one, getting it shipped here, painted and installed is going to be a lot more than I want to spend….. gonna have to think on it…. Dammit Emmit~!

Ensuing trips to the pharmacy and grocery stores were equally frustrating….. so whadda ya gonna do ? Go to the house, make drinks and watch House of Cards (which thankfully is getting nothing but better~!) Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

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~!!!! ;-)
