What to rattle on about………

A REALLY slow day here on the West end today….. well, not that slow – I did run into town for a carry out breakfast….. and I got to say – YuM~!! We each had a [plain] Belgian waffle (nice variety to choose from – Pecan, Blueberry or Chocolate Chip), it came with some eggs and a choice of meat. It was served up very promptly, the entire staff was smiling and friendly and it was decently priced. About a 4 minute drive back to the house and before you knew it we were digging in. By the time I got it back to the house, I was starvin’ (and really looking forward to having waffles) and I dug in and wiped it out before I even thought to take a picture……  There was only one waffle, but it was a big one and with the eggs and meat – it made for a right sizable breakfast. After breakfast we settled into not doing much of anything….. my Bride played her phone game and I piddled for a while, putting up the sign for house number, cleaning a new shelf the ‘kids’ gave us and starting to load it up with stuff. I also managed to get my printer hooked up and the new internet installed on it – that’s always a treat…….. and it is actually working now~!  Tired of that noise, we finally settled in to find a new show to watch….. we landed on Outlander…… into it 3 episodes so far and still mostly on the fence about it. It is starting to act like it might be getting a little better, so we’ll stick with it for a little bit longer and see where it goes…. I’ll let you know~~

I mentioned yesterday that have closed down the beaches on the island…… that is going over like a fart in church. The 2 main pastimes on the island are drinking and hanging out on the beach. They have already closed the bars down…. and now the beaches~! You can’t even walk across them to go SCUBA diving…! Now hold on just a friggin minute~!! I am tolerating and abiding the bars being closed (not much choice) and the beach closings, I was willing to take that quietly….. but no diving. Bull Hockey~! You can’t get any more social distancing than that~! There is quite the hullaballoo about that, and for now I’m gonna see how it pans out….. yeah, yeah yeah….. I ‘get’ the whole stay at home and social distance thing…. but I think they’re taking it a smidge to far now.  The whole beach thing is to clamp down on the Easter tradition here of camping on the beach (HUGE gatherings) over the Easter weekend…. and I totally get [and accept] that – but if a husband and wife want to sit on the beach with drinks and watch the sunset (socially distanced from everybody else) I don’t get the harm in that….. but that is just my opinion….. and you know what those are like ((belly buttons))  😉  everybody’s got one~! Let’s hear yours.      At my limit….. and no new pictures, so I’ll dig something out……

Good Night Ya’ll % % % % % % % % % % % Thanx 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~!!!! ;-)
