Getting out….. Oy~!

The next morning…. we apparently had a bit of a shower just before we got up as everything was wet….. wetter than dew will replicate. Up early again, but a little better nights sleep….. definitely know I did better. I only heard the peacocks a couple of times. I’m sure our normal slumber will return as we get settled in and used to our new place. I’m concerned it may be a bit small for more than 2 visitors at a time – but I already have a great plan B in place — so C’mon…. we’d love to have you and show you our beautiful island…….

We both opted to skip breakfast this morning as the plan was to go back to the condo and get the final cleaning done so we would be officially out of the condo~! We managed to get down there around 9:00-9:30 and set in immediately into work. Ya know – no matter how clean you think you maintain a place…… you start pulling out beds and chest of drawers and stuff like that, you find out, REALLY quick, just how much dirt you can accumulate in a place….. especially if you live on a beach, with constant strong winds and leaky doors.  The A/C dude showed up about an hour and a half into it and got the A/C working – which really boosted our sagging spirits, as we were both hot, sweaty and dirty by that point. He left and we continued to clean…….. It got to be 2:30 or so and we were both dragging at that point (stupid for skipping a breakfast)….. so we decided we’d call it a day and head back to the house. The condo is 96% clean…. just needs a few finishing touches. I agreed to leave my Queen to her own devices tomorrow while I go down and finish the little bit left in condo and turn in the keys.

Finally back at the house, a nice cool breeze, a cold drink (or several). My Queen had expressed a desire earlier for some KFC – so once we wound down, had a drink (or several) and a smoke….. I ran to town (no, I actually drove) to try out the newly opened KFC there. The whole virus thing has made ordering food a bit different, but was in and out in under 20 minutes (which is really good considering everything) I only wanted to ‘bitch slap’ the little girl once…. gave me an ‘eye roll’ that dang near made me bite a hole in my lip….  Quite an experience…. my 12 piece ‘bucket’ contained 3 pieces of ‘something’ I could not identify and 9 legs….. not a friggin’ breast in the bunch~! Sides were another point of contention….. you could have mashed potatoes or what vaguely resembled French fries….. no slaw, no corn on the cob, no sweet corn…. NADDA~! I didn’t even bother asking about the pies….. just wasn’t worth my effort.

Back at the house…… yard bird consumed…..more drinks….. ready for a shower and some ZZZZZZ’s. Hopefully even better nights sleep. Even though we have no A/C here, the place is much cooler than the condo because of that fabulous breeze blowing through…. hope it holds out ALL year long…… At my limit, so gonna stop here…..

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~!!!! ;-)
