At least we had electricity……….

Up fairly early after a wonderful nights sleep…. I’m thinking a fairly busy dull day, a lot of Vodka and a handful of various pills contributed to that night of slumber, but I don’t care…. I’ll take it. The plan is not to have to rely on that combo very often to attain said nights sleep. Woke up with both fans running….yea~~~ electricity~!! After I finished my bathroom stuff – I sat down at the table and opened my lap top (like I always do) to let it warm up while I take my blood pressure. I have to say, I am almost ‘religious’ about taking my BP reading as soon as I come out of the bathroom, per ‘Doc’s’ instructions. As the cuff swelled up on my arm, I noticed the ugly little banner across my lap top that read “No Internet Connection”……. dammit Emmit~! At least we had electricity, so my Bride had her coffee~! Yay~!!  A bunch of cigarettes and piddling on the phone and it got to be 09:00….. I figured our cable folks ought to be drifting in to work by then. One phone call of, push this, press that, unplug this, pull that out, put it back in, plug it back in and 20 minutes later we had internet~! The day was finally off to an almost normal start……. Most of the day was me on line updating addresses….. it’s amazing the number of places you don’t realize need it until you have to do it…… It got to be after lunch and dude came by to pick up the little freezer we had for sale….. that’s out of the way now – so we have room for more stuff~!!  After he left, I headed for the condo to make one last check of our old mail box to make sure our mail had been transferred….. it had – Yay~! I stopped and checked on our yet to be delivered end table for the living room…. it made it in – Yay~! (soon to be delivered) Yay! I stopped by the drug store and re-stocked up on Actifed (they actually had the 100 count bottles – Yay! They had enough, they even let me get 2 bottles [double] Yay~! Living without A/C highlights all your allergies and stuff…. woo-hooo. But, ya know, today it made it to 88°, the sun felt so good, gorgeous blue skies and even though they are closing the beaches (yes, you read that right) it is still pretty righteous on this little rock………

I’m not going into my tirade right now about beach closings, because that is probably a blog all by itself and since I’m close to my limit – I’ll sign off right here……

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

Our dinner for tonight…. I don’t think I even touched on it… it was wonderful… this is what my Queen had… “The Beast” (apparently NOT) the sammich I showed earlier……. dammit.

MY sammich…”The Ultimate Club” and it was ‘smack yo Mama’ goooooood~! (I only ate half – I had to save some space for an apple pie…..)  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
