Easter Monday here on the island

Another pretty typical day here on the island. Fairly decent nights sleep, no cat fights or anything to wake me up early – but up mostly early anyway. Catching up on world events (jeez I’m getting tired of reading about ‘the virus’) and seeing what my FB peeps were all up to. Dive shop pinged me and said conditions were not good enough to warrant going out – so those plans to get underwater today got shot down fairly quick. Dammit Emmit~! We quarantined all day. I did not go into town for anything today… and it mostly sucks…. check that – it does suck. Not a terrible social type of person to start with anyway, still sitting here in the house all day is getting old. I think it would be a good time to get my walking routine started….maybe…..

Tomorrow will be busier day. We’re dang near out of booze and groceries, I need to get DD cleaned up so I can get it up for sale, laundry needs done and I need a handful of things from the Home Depot so I can get some work done around here. I will get as much of this done as I can tomorrow – the holiday weekend will be over here on the island and business’ should be open and hungry for customers (I’m laughing to myself, because if you’ve ever dealt with some of the these places, you would understand my amusement with that statement)  I’ll try and get some out and about pictures for you while I’m at it.

Got the quote from the A/C dude and it’s a lot more than I was hoping for. I say hoping because it is almost exactly as much as I thought it was gonna be – so I am going to explore some other options before I take him up on his quote. One way or the other, I have got to get some A/C in the bedroom for my Queen before it really starts warming up here. It is already getting up into the mid-to-upper 80°’s now and without that fabulous breeze we’re used to, it gets toasty pretty quick and my bride has a hard time breathing [comfortably]. So this way, she’ll have a nice cool room to retreat to when she needs it – and it will make for better sleeping on those hot tropical nights for both of us. Bad part is – to put in a conventional window air conditioner, is going to require some fairly heavy construction work, as all of our windows are louvers and screen and they are concreted in place~! I’ll get-‘Er-done though….. one way or another……..

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~!!!! ;-)
