Not tonight……. I thought~~~

Up to a fairly early start to my day while my Queen snoozed in a little bit. I’m good with that as I know the sleep is good for her – plus – it gives me the time to start the morning to myself…… while she admittedly, is not a chatter box in the morning, I still like the ‘wee‘ hours to my self to wake up. Just a me thing. Woke up – morning stuff out of the way…. I decided to launch into some yard maintenance while my Bride was doing her breathing treatments and had some plans for breakfast. When I went to pay rent the other day – I asked the landlord if it was okay if I did some of my own yard maintenance versus waiting for ‘her guy’ to do it. I think her guy may be a Grandson or some other family member and I apparently just offended the hell out of him the last time I got ‘caught’ doing my own yard stuff. I explained that I enjoy mowing the yard [I really do] and that the exercise was good for me [as I patted my belly]. Once she heard that and I understood I didn’t expect a reduction on rent or anything like that…. she was fine with it and even told him (as he mysteriously appeared during the conversation) that I was ‘saving him some work’)….. So I launched into my yard work, fully satisfied in the knowledge I was doing it ‘legally’. For the next 2 hours [with a time out for breakfast] – I mowed and weed eated… weed ate…. I used the weed eater to trim everything…… however you say it. Now the yard is gorgeous and I’m happy with the job I did.

My Bride decided we needed to go to Blues tonight and catch up with friends from there. Another friend was scheduled as the entertainment for the night so we wanted to be there to support him as well. So I got a quick shower [the old fat boy worked up a pretty good lather out there doing manual labor] – and in what would eventually be discovered as a brilliant move on my part, I made me a sammich…. a dang fine sammich if I say so myself….. chopped hammed, a couple of slices of a right fine tomato and a pile of lettuce with ‘just the right amount of mayo’ to seal the deal…… it was so fine….. how fine was it ?? SOOO fine – I made a second one and washed everything down with a bottle of Spark. Well let me tell you what…. the evening at Blues was wonderful, we chatted, drank [a LOT] and just had a wonderful time. At closing, we helped close the yard up and I drove home without any fear of staying in my lane or ‘not making it’….. Yay~!! Back home safe and sound, the plan was to weeny out of posting anything tonight, yet – here I am almost at my limit… Had a wonderful face time chat with our oldest Granddaughter who [we just found out tonight is going through some medical issues] and hopefully helped her feel a little bit better about the struggle in front of her. I don’t have a heckva lot of new pictures for you tonight, so a little skimpy there.  I do have a DSD tomorrow I’m shooting [professionally] – so I should have new underwater pictures for you tomorrow night…….

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~!!!! ;-)
