Hurry up and wait………

Up early after crashing early last night. Waiting for the ping from dude with the car to say meet him at the BMV. I’m sure most of you reading this have dealt with the BMV somewhere in your lifetime and that you know what kind of headache and frustration that can be. Now sprinkle that equation with a healthy dose of Island time and you will just begin to understand my trepidation of having to go there, but I wanted to get my Queen her car so I was ready to jump in with both feet. Dude ( Dudes name is Unnga…. just a lot easier to call him Dude)  finally pinged me and said they were having trouble finding the paperwork they needed…..not a good sign….. so trying to be patient…. I said no worries…. pinged me a little bit later, still having trouble [more red flags]….. I told him I did not want to waste my day sitting around waiting on something that might not happen. Call was finally made about 1:00pm that paperwork was ready, but probably best to just wait until tomorrow (code for we still ain’t found what we need yet. Again, trying to be cool – I said okay – I’ll meet you at the BMV tomorrow morning at 08:30…… if he’s not there – or there and don’t have everything we need for me to take ownership – I’m just gonna tell him to stick it in his……. place where the sun don’t shine. A tomorrow transaction also complicates things in that my Bride’s new wash machine is supposed to be delivered tomorrow morning as well and she will need to be here at the house for that – so I am going to have to navigate the BMV and car stuff by myself and then figure out how to get the car back to the house. I’ll worry about that after/when I take ownership. Soooo…. if everything falls into place – a big day for my Queen tomorrow…… new car, new wash machine…….life on  the island is returning to some form of normalcy…… maybe.

Still LOTS of underwater pictures to share with you, including my awesome close up shark pictures. I have a 2-tank dive scheduled with my favorite dive shop Wednesday – so I’ll be adding even more underwater pictures to my collection for you~! Until then – please cross your fingers for me that everything goes smoothly tomorrow….. hells bells….. I’d even settled for semi-smoothly. Thank you~~~~~

Good Night Ya’ll ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Thankx for stoppin 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~!!!! ;-)
