Peacocks and cleaning……

Late to bed last night as I got wrapped up in our newest series (Ozark) and had to see what was gonna happen in the next episode and before I knew it, it was midnight. I eased on into bed and was just getting comfy when those #$%^&* Peacocks started squalling…… it took me almost an hour to get to sleep, but finally managed to turn my brain down and mostly ignore the squalling birds. Sadly that didn’t last very long as those damn birds honked off and on all friggin’ night. I finally couldn’t take it anymore and rolled out around 06:30…. I had to pee anyway…. so might as well. I didn’t think Peacocks were nocturnal, but those damn birds didn’t make a sound the rest of the morning~! I got my morning stuff out of the way and was soon on my way to finish cleaning the condo. My Queen wanted to hit the Dollar Store for some house hold items we need, so I left her to do that. At the condo by 10:00 I set in immediately to cleaning….. I may have been off a smidge on my estimate for how much was left. I stayed at it for a solid 2 ½ hours before finally turning in the keys. I had [foolishly] skipped breakfast again and was starting to pay for it. I still had a couple of stops to make, finally making it back to the house by 2:00. I sat and drank a couple of ice cold beers and enjoyed the cool breeze before settling in at the lap top for some more ‘work’.

I had to contact (get on websites) about a dozen and half places and change our address.  Couple of them won’t let me because listing the Virgin Islands is not an option in their drop down boxes for State. I guess some folks are a little more behind the times than others in their IT department. I mean – it may seem like we live in a third world country sometimes here on our beautiful little island….. but doesn’t mean folks should try and call us out on it, just because we choose to live in this little piece of paradise. Just ain’t right in this world of modern technology. Done about all the damage I could stand and by 5:00 had the Vodka/Cran in hand and sitting down with you all now. Gonna have to put up more oldies tonight, as the only pictures I took today were of the condo (proof it was clean when I left). So for now, I want to get a shower and chill for a bit and see what’s coming up on Ozark~!  (Dammit…. a Peacock just squalled – he must know I’m getting ready to lay down)~!!!!!!

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

I went outside to smoke while waiting for pictures to load and guess what came strutting up in the yard…. very skittish, so these are telephoto to get these shots, so they may be a tad grainy……

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~!!!! ;-)
