A day off — and got hootied…….. dammit

Up bright and early after a wonderful nights slumber in that oh so wonderful conditioned air. Even though we had a pouring rain in the middle of the night – our usually ever present trade wind across the island has been mostly absent and even though it rarely ever gets over 90° here, without that wonderful breeze – it can get down right stuffy. Getting the little A/C for our bedroom was definitely a good call, as it allows for the much needed comfortable nights sleep us old fogey’s need….. well, at least me anyway.

Plan was to go car shopping today for my Bride, after the island ‘kids‘ got done using my truck……… My bride made us a scrump-dilli-icious breakfast while waited…. only to be pinged and said use of truck plans were cancelled for the day. No worries – we finished up what we needed around here and headed out looking for vehicles……. jeezus what a joke on this island. We checked out several places, only to give up and stop at Blues.  Actually a good thing we did, as during normal bar conversation we came upon what sounds to be exactly the car [in our price range] that we were looking for, for my Queen. Conversation and plans in place to check it out as soon as it available. So we sat and chatted with friends we haven’t seen in a while and just had a ball. Sure was great to be hanging out there again~! We sat there until I was at the point where I was going to have to switch to water….. which I really didn’t want to do – but luckily, my bride was ready to go at that point, so we settled up our bill and headed out. Good, good times……..

I was mostly hungry by that point and in serious need of something solid in my belly – so I took the long way back and swung into one of our local McDonalds. We got our meal reasonably quick [for island time] less than 15 minutes and we were on out way. I munched on 2 Filet-0-Fish sammiches and a medium order of fries while I called the v-e-r-y slow driver in front of me all kinds of names. In all fairness though…. I was also trying to deal with someone calling me on the phone (4 different  times….Angie was answering the phone so be quiet girls) plus answering questions from a FB message….. not an ideal situation to enjoy a long anticipated Mickey D’s meal…… but we finally made it back, without hitting anyone, although admittedly, I did yell out the window a couple of times….. we’re back now and safe – mostly full (I hate to admit my double quarter pounder will have to wait until probably after diving tomorrow)….. I have gulped a bottle of water [and 3 Excedrin] and am now trying desperately to make sense while I type this. I opted out of apple pies from McD’S (which they’re usually out of anyways) so I can have yet another piece of the delicious cake my Honeybear sent me for Fathers day. Now I am one of the original junk food junkies…. but let me tell you….. this cake is soooooo rich….. how rich is it??? OMG – I am down to one little sliver at a time when I have a piece – but I ain’t giving up~! Got another contract to shoot more pictures with a local dive shop…. so back to work tomorrow [under water] — Woo-hoo~!!!

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~!!!! ;-)
