More strides… we’re getting there~!

Up early than either of us wanted – but I think the whole moving thing is slowly creeping into our brains and keeping us from good sound solid sleep. While my Bride worked on breakfast – I made another dozen trips out to the truck, slowly emptying our condo. A quick bite to eat and we were on our way out West. The cable guy (who wasn’t due until 1:00) called and asked if he could come early….. After picking my jaw up off the floor, I told him we had just left heading that way (11:00) and that 12:30 would be fine as we had to make a stop or two before getting out there. Agreed. We got to our new place…. I got the TV set up, and the stove assembled and connected [and working properly]….. about the time the cable guy showed up. He set in immediately to work while we worked inside trying to make the place livable. About that time our island kids showed up with an amazing looking sammich from a local sammich shop…… it was a Pastrami and I’m not a real fan of it – but smack my mouth that looked good~! It was big enough they both had a huge half. They offered to share, but we had a late brunch, so we passed on it – but I Guar-on-tee I will be hitting that place soon. They have a sammich called The Beast….. I saw a picture of it – and it is on~! Their whole menu looks pretty spectacular (other than the Pastrami)…… my Bride may even find something she likes from there (she doesn’t ‘do’ lunch meat)  😉

Cable dude finally got finished up – but wasn’t getting any signal to the main pole – so he has to come back. Dammit Emmit~! That’s okay – turns out he left a big gear bag sitting on our porch – I picked it up and safely locked it inside the house before we left – so I’m sure we’ll be seeing him sooner than later  😉   We finished the drink we were having and headed back here…… My Queen whooped up some rice and beef stew with biscuits…… yummy~! Although I’m gonna probably fart like a bandit and she is going to belly ache about it….. but MmMmMm good~!

That’s about it. We have the condo opened up to get a breeze as it gets pretty stuff with the doors closed and no A/C. Not my worry about salt air in the place now. Landlord wants to drag his feet getting A/C fixed – I’m not gonna sit here and suffocate while he does. The sun is down now and the breeze is now a comfortable high 70°s….. feels good…. even if we have to put up with salt and a few bugs……. should be close to moving out tomorrow – just got to get the internet going…..

Putting up more blasts from the past pictures as they seem to be pretty popular….

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~!!!! ;-)
