Getting settled

Tried to sleep in after another night of going to bed too late (watching Ozark) and having to get up early (06:00) because my bladder was about to bust….. which I was made aware of by being woke up by our friendly neighborhood horny Peacocks… An eerie calm morning that was just down right chilly [to us] – I hurried up and shut all the fans off and then wandered out for my first smoke of the day and to [mostly] silently cuss the squalling Peacocks. I love being up at that time of the morning if I have had a decent nights sleep and got up of my own accord….. the ‘birds’ had other plans…….. @#$%^&~! I made the most of it and after breakfast set in to get at least a little bit accomplished as my first full day I didn’t have to worry about the other place. I started by updating a few more websites with our new address. Went from that to installing a motion detecting spotlight for our parking/smoking area. I also managed to get an island friend out (who is a plumber and in need of work) out to look at fixing our sink drain and adding a water line to our new fridge (with in line filter) so we can drink water out of the fridge and HAVE ICE CUBES~!! May not seem like much to you all, but we have been using ice cube trays [old school] since we have been on the island and having ice cubes when ever we want them- on hand….. is kind of a big deal to us. He hung out, drank a beer and we chatted for a bit (he is a Blues regular). He figured out what he needed and said he would be back tomorrow afternoon. About the time he was ready to leave – our island kids showed up with another one of them righteous looking sammiches from the local deli. They hung out, we chatted, drank, they ate and then took off for the store. In an effort to keep us old decrepit folks out of harms way…. they offered to pick some stuff up for us and we happily let them…… could kinda get used to that kind of stuff~! Now my Queen is sitting on the couch saving the world (something else I got done today was hook up her PS 4 and our sound system to the TV) and she is now playing God of War……while I regale you of the day.  The ‘kids’ ought to be back soon – so I’m gonna go burn one while I load some pictures and then gather up our groceries…. (mostly booze – but you know……)    😉

Not much in the way of new pictures….. none worth sharing with you all anyway… so will see if I can find some I think you’ll like… until tomorrow……

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

Well Sh*t Sherlock…… for some reason   I can’t get any pictures to load…. so- sorry…. too tired to try and figure it out tonight….. Hopefully will have it figure out tomorrow………………..

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~!!!! ;-)
