First full day~!

After a less than stellar night’s sleep in our new abode ( I think a long, hot, tough day, coupled with a new mattress, a new place with new sounds, all kinda ganged up on us both. It’s hard to turn off your brain as you think of the blue dozen things you want/need to get done around your place to make it livable, so we both stumbled out carefully a little after 06:00 – slowly inching our way around this new environment. We walked out for our morning smoke…. instantly missing the roar and view of the waves we had crashing on our own private beach. There is a silence to this place, this morning though….. almost deafening. I think most of you reading this can relate to a deafening silence….. nice once you get to used to it…. which is really easy for me to get used to. The one thing I do need to get used though…… we have a small herd of Peacocks living in very close proximity to us, and come dark thirty, any little thing spooks them and they sound off. Apparently it is now also mating season…. so apparently the nasty little beggars are horny as well and they sound off a LOT~! (If you’ve never heard them…. give it a listen: and they do it ALL night long~~~ Got to love moving to a new place. We have been told ‘you’ll get used to it’ – I’m not so sure about that – but we’ll see…….

I have to go back to the condo tomorrow to let the A/C dude in to work and finish the last little bit of cleaning before we are out of there ‘for good’. I’m really looking forward to getting that behind me. Then I get to spend the next several days, changing our address on about 2 dozen different websites. I had my SCUBA gear sent out for it’s annual inspection and am hoping it gets back soon, so I can get my happy a$$ back underwater…… I’m way past due to blow some  bubbles. For now though, we are officially “West Enders” and now gonna have to “travel” that ‘long’ [30 minute] drive to get to Blues (when they open back up after this virus mess)…….

I’m gonna call it a night, get me a shower…. maybe a little TV before crashing….. We finished House of Cards...…. jeez was that a mess…… I watched [and finished] Tiger King because everybody on the island was talking about it…. no. Entertaining if you like making fun of gay rednecks….. but just basically a waste of time….. Just started Ozarks…….only into second episode, but it shows promise…. for now a couple of new pictures and some more oldies – but goodies.

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~!!!! ;-)
