Getting somewhere…….

Up after a fairly decent nights slumber, that comes from a belly full of good pizza, cold beer, sweet stuff and sharing all of that with people you like to be around. Now waiting for the land lady who was in typical island fashion….late. She finally showed up… loved what we’re doing with the place so far and happily gave us permission to install cabinets and shelves as we saw fit. Yay~ First breakfast~! Because I didn’t get the breakfast I wanted yesterday (waiting on the landlady) I kind of extended my birthday into today a little bit and we ordered from Polly’s and I got my Henhouse waffle special…..MmMmMmmm. That done and suitably rested (Finished up the series 100 Humans) I set in to get at least one cabinet installed. I can remembering doing that particular task easily and quickly. Not so much any more – but in my defense, I don’t have near the tools I used to have (right tool, for the job makes a big difference) and I’m definitely not in the shape I used to be….. (but round is a shape)… it took a little while longer, but we now have a new cabinet up in our tiny bathroom. I have a nice big tri-window medicine cabinet to replace the dinky little defunct one we have now….. but there is concrete work to be done, some electrical work as well, before the new one can go up – so I’m gonna save that for another day. Tomorrow I’m gonna tie into the bedroom window project, so I can get some A/C put in for my Bride~! I suspect that will be an all day, aggravating project…. but kinda looking forward to getting into it – in the morning. The kids stopped by to drop off a tool I needed (would have made drilling into concrete a lot easier) but it turned out it wouldn’t work  🙂 but I got through anyway. They were headed up to the tide pools and wanted to know if we wanted to go – but I was in mid project at the time, so we passed.

Now, project is done, we each had a couple bites of left over pizza and garlic bread and we’re winding the evening down now. I opened up my “hugs” from yesterday and got “Snail mail” hugs from a couple of my Grandbabies and looked through all my cards and everything again now that I had the quiet and time to enjoy it. Angie has already had her shower and I’m looking forward to getting mine shortly……

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~!!!! ;-)
