We moved…….!

A lazy start to the day today…. a tasty small breakfast and we both set into our now regular routine of congregating things to be hauled out to the truck[s]….. Oh good lord what happened ???? Before I knew it… I had made countless trips out to the truck[s] hauling stuff….. I also made 4 trips to the dumpster… (140 yards, not  that I counted)…… this went on until a little past 2:00….. at that point, we had decided…. we are moving today……!!!  Neither one of us wanted to have to drive back to mid island…. so we dropped ‘er into low gear and loaded pillows, razors, soap, deodorant and all things essential to ‘not have to come back’ to the condo. We pushed ourselves a little harder and farther than we originally planned… but it just seemed like the thing to do……. Both trucks loaded and headed West….. we got here and dutifully started UN-loading the trucks…… only one little ‘blow up‘ and finally trucks were unloaded. We had already started drinking (don’t roll your eyes – we had to celebrate moving into the place~!)  Hot, sweaty and more tired than either of us wanted to be…… we finally had the trucks unloaded. At the time, neither of us wanted to think about food – but I knew once we cooled off, we would be hungry……. the Deli I have been itching to try out is closed on the weekend, so I called a local bar and ordered cheesy breadsticks, a meatball sub for my Queen and their version of a “all meat” pizza. Surprisingly it only took 20 minutes for it to be done (I think this whole beer virus thing has got food places a little bit more refocused). It looked tasty……. looked…… The breadsticks were…. heh….. we both agreed the meatball sammich had way to much oregano…… the pizza…… DEFINTELY AIN’T Turoni’s….. not even on the same planet…… while I enjoyed each and every bite I took of it…… well, the first dozen bites….. I enjoyed it, but sadly the “itch” was not scratched…….. I took pictures, but sadly, as of yet, cannot find the hootus that I plug into the laptop to transfer pictures. The house is now stacked to the teeth with everything and neither of us is entirely sure where anything is at right now  – – – – – – –  but that’s okay….. we have had ample drinks, enjoying a nice cool breeze wafting through our little place. We have Solid Gold Oldies playing on the TV and all is right now in our little part of the world again…… so I may have to put up some more golden oldie pictures until I find my transfer wire…. so for now….. I’m out…. I stink and need a shower [really bad]… and some sleep in our new bed in or new place……………..!

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~!!!! ;-)
