Closer & closer……

Had to be out West by noon today to meet up with the cable dude…… so up, a bite to eat – another dozen trips out to the truck loading ‘stuff’….. did I mention how much ‘stuff’ we have manage to accumulate in our short two years in this place….? Jeez Louise – and what complicates things – is our new place doesn’t have as much square footage — so our new place is getting really full now… Good thing, though, is we’re just about done. Other than a hand full of things in the closet, about all we have left to do is empty the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator. Happily, we have a  much bigger refrigerator now, and pretty much the same amount of kitchen cabinet space….. just a matter of getting it moved. I would like to think, we’ll make the permanent move probably Sunday…… we’ll see~~

After stopping at Home Depot, for an 8′ step ladder, a new ceiling fan and some other odds and ends….. we were at  the new place by noon. My bride went back to work lining the cabinets, while I put a spring and chain on the kitchen door (so it wouldn’t bang into our new pretty stove) and then tied into the ceiling fan. The old one threw a couple of blades and the light didn’t work….. so I pulled it down and after what seemed like 100 trips up and down the ladder, we have a nice new fan in the second bedroom. The cable dude finally showed up and immediately claimed the bag he forgot…..half-assedly mentioning he needed it for his first job this morning….. I pointed out [kindly] that he shouldn’t have left it here…..  😉 It only took a couple of minutes to have our TV up and running. I asked him about the internet…. and he said what internet ? A slap the forehead moment……. I mentioned it several times yesterday but I guess it didn’t process correctly….. A couple of phone calls, a new box and some [in perceptible] mumbling…. we had internet~!! And it’s fast~!! (at least it was when I tested it)….. cable dude on his way and we had a drink (or three) while enjoying our new place…… it rained most of the time we were there – but that is something else we will have to get used to as the West end of the island is the ‘wet’ end of the island…. no worries as it never lasts long~~~  🙂

On the way back to the condo – my Queen was getting hungry and in the mood for a Mickey D’s Quarter pounder… I am always in the mood for Mickey D’s and I ordered my usual…. I also ordered pies…. but in usual fashion they didn’t have any……. AND – we were the ONLY car in line and ordered AND GOT our food in under 6 minutes….. A new record for that location~!! Bellies full, a wonderful cool breeze blowing through the condo, a nice Face Time chat with daughter Rachael…. all is right in our little world for the time being. Looking forward to not having to get stuff done tomorrow….. but still probably another small trip to check on the place………….

Good Night Ya’ll  % % % % % % % % % % % Thankx for stopping in~!

This place is out on the West end and I have always wanted to try it – looks like I’m gonna get my chance now~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
