A non-descript Saturday……..

That wonderful cool breeze I was talking about last night, dropped off and it became absolutely stuffy. My Queen had already headed to bed and fresh out of the shower, I was sitting in front of a fan trying to cool off and get sleepy enough to head on into bed. We sleep under enough fans, that it is usually really nice and cool when we go to bed…… but last night – not so much. As I laid there trying to get comfy enough to fall asleep, I listened to my Queen fidgeting around. She eventually did a half a flop and put her head at the foot of the bed where one of the fans sit…… obviously wanting to be cooler. That was all I needed to get up and crank the shutters closed and turned on the A/C. I had been debating it prior to her flip flop in the bed – but that sealed it. In about 15 minutes, the room was already cool enough to make sheets and any clothes you were wearing ‘let loose’ of you. Within 30 minutes, I was crawling under the sheet. It was Midnight at that point and sleep came easily and plentiful. By 05:15 – I had to get up to run to the bathroom and came back to bed and crawled back under the sheet – which sent Angie curling up against me for additional warmth. Guess I need to turn the A/c up a little bit. We both finally crawled out around 08:00 which is the latest either of us have slept in quite a while. A very slow morning followed. A small breakfast and I was trying to get into walking mode, but a small stomach disorder kept me from venturing very far from the house. (I ate enough BBQ ribs last night to choke a buffalo) which I suspect was the culprit.

By the time I felt safe enough to venture out, it was 1:30 or so, and Angie convinced me to keep my tired old fat butt there at the house instead of trying to walk in ‘that heat’. Honestly, it really didn’t take a lot of argument.  😉  Several hours later, after watching a ridiculous amount of Schitt’$ Creek on Netflix, Shawn stopped by to join us for dinner. (His wife) Cynthia took off for the states this afternoon – and we wanted to make sure he got one decent meal in him while she was gone. We ate til almost bloated and then sat and watched the screen saver on my lap top for well over an hour as he got a glimpse into our previous life. I finally ran him off and now here I sit chatting with you. No new pictures, so will put up some from previous. I hope you haven’t seen them yet….. after awhile I get confused what I have put up for you…… We are ‘working’ tomorrow…. helping Shawn out with the ATV tours his business operates, so there should be some shots from that tomorrow.

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~!!!! ;-)
