On the trails again…………

Crashed a little earlier last night than usual…. (1, because I knew I had to get up early for ‘work’ and (2, because I was about half hammered…..not sure if those are in the right order or not – but showered, liquored up and tired – I was ready for some sleep in our now wonderfully cool bedroom. Turns out, that A/C  apparently is one of the deciding factors on how well we sleep – especially this time of the year when it is hot and dry and not a hellva lot of wind  [awww…. right?]  Up a couple of minutes before the 06:00 alarm I had set….. got up and did my thing before my Bride came stumbling out behind me……. it has been established that neither of us like getting up now before we are ‘ready’. Job had to be done though and we committed to it – so we were up and finally ”at ’em” arriving at the shop in time to help get most of the machines over and get the incoming folks ready for their ride. Paperwork signed, helmets issued and soon we were off. Let me offer up a piece of advice here folks [free of charge] — if you’re going to do something like an ATV tour – and the guides ask ‘if you have done this before – or rode an ATV before’……. Don’t lie to them…. because we can tell about 3minutes into the ride whether you’re lying or not. We had one of those guys today……. jeez Louise….. we got them through the ride though with minimal issues and back safely…… they expressed their gratitude with a VERY measly tip (and that was from 1 guy)……. but no doubt in any of our minds, they had a good time….. and in the end, I guess that’s all that counts.

Shawn borrowed a truck to pick up wife and 3 Daughters from the airport…. simply because we  ALL believed he wouldn’t get the four of them AND luggage into his car……. we were right….. ya gotta love old people who think about that kind of stuff…… they stopped by the house to get into swimming trunks while poor ole Shawn got to lug everything up the mountain and unload it in their house. We had drinks and chatted and caught up. We haven’t seen their kids since last year……… Spooky how fast them little porch monkeys grow up. Makes me wonder even more about our own set of ankle biters back in the states that we haven’t seen since September……. 🙁   They have all left for the beach now…. my Queen warmed up left over porkchops and we have since inhaled them and now I’m chatting with you. I have been reaching out to my fav dive shop trying to get a dive tomorrow……. if they don’t answer me – I may just grab a tank and go do the pier, by myself. Probably not the safest/smartest thing I could do – but I feel safe and secure doing that particular dive by myself….. so we’ll see. I just want to get in the water.

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~!!!! ;-)
