‘Storms’ and neighbors………..

Up after a much better nights sleep (with fans and conditioned air) we rolled out to a mixed up kind of day.  The National Weather service said we were ‘probably’ going to be hit with a small hurricane….. I think that falls somewhere in line with being kind of pregnant. My Queen was scheduled to work today and had not been called off, so she was gone by 08:30, leaving me here to my own devices. She took off and I made me a wonderfully delicious breakfast and sat and enjoyed it while I perused the wonderful world of FB. Geeeesh what a cluster…… mess~~ I eagerly looked forward to being ”trapped” in our humble little abode and affording the opportunity to find my self in the midst of an [at least Cat1] hurricane and getting some fun pictures of it for you. With the exception of about a 15 minute period where the rain came down sideways [essence of Forrest Gump] and I scrambled around to close the shutters to keep everything from getting soggy [including our bed]….. our ‘storm’ was pretty non-descript. Meaning… I have been through a HELLVA lot worse back in Southern Indiana….. a little bit depressing, although I may come to eat those words in time to come.

So – no weather to act a fool and get pictures for you (I was imagining shots from the Weather channel where those fools were out battling hurricane force winds) I relegated myself to listening to music and cleaning up my hard drive of stuff that no longer matters. An hour or two into that and a ping from my bride told me she was on the way home. Yay~! She got here, I unloaded the car again of what I thought was entirely too many groceries, she made us drinks and we were soon back into our comfortable routine. Started a movie I think we have both seen, but it was interesting so we stayed with it until the neighbors got home and ‘came a callin’. Fast forward a couple of hours…. dinner sat on the stove uncooked [spaghetti – Dammit EMMIT] ‘several’ drinks…….. the neighbors finally headed back to their place…. dinner was shelved in the fridge for tomorrow…. I made me a couple of chopped ham sammiches, as I was on the edge of stupid at that point and here now I sit, trying to make sense talking to you all….. How I’m doin’ ???

Comfortable with the fact the ‘storm’ is well past us now and we didn’t even get a decent rain out of it…. I’m gonna put up a couple of some dive pictures for you and try and finish our movie……. just kiddin…. probably heading to bed shortly after I get this done. Curfew in effect on the island now from Midnight tonight until noon tomorrow,,,so can’t go anywhere….. but we’ll see what the day brings…………….

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~!!!! ;-)
