BIG news~!! [to me]

Today started again much earlier than either of us wanted – but to meet obligations, choices were slim…… up and preparing for the day – an early morning email negated the first of the days plans….. not really upset about it – as I wasn’t really shot in the ass…. butt about the meeting we were supposed to attend any way. We still had to go pick up my Bride’s car, so a trip back to mid island was gonna happen whether we liked it or not. My bride set in and about to make us a small breakfast before we lit out – but switching on the stove reminded us both that our illustrious gas company had NOT yet delivered our propane, so I made a quick call to our favorite West end restaurant and before you know it, we were dining on eggs, bacon and waffles….. well….. I  did…. my Bride had ¾ of ONE waffle before calling it quits. She is under the misguided impression eating less will help her lose weight………… Imma shut my mouth right about here. Breakfast done, we headed to mid-island….. I dropped my Queen off to recover her car (with the 1 out of 7 items needing fixed – fixed) As she headed back to the West – I went to talk to ‘dude’ about getting my lap top fixed. Understand…. this is my 3rd visit to this guy and still have zero intel to work with about getting my lap top fixed. He was at lunch – could I come back in an hour ? SURE…. home was only 45 minutes away and I’d be happy to kill an hour waiting on him to come back from lunch. Blues was only 10minutes away – so I opted to go and drink beer until dude got back from his friggin’ lunch~!   Which I did. Came back to find out he was back, but was walking his @#$%^&*( dog……….. So I waited……. and waited…… I think it’s about time for another beer……. Dude finally shows up – and the estimate he had written for me was wrong because he didn’t realize – I had ‘that’ computer….. seriously ???? I brought the *&^%$#@ thing in twice already…. so another look and” I’ll call you back” [again….. disgusted, but calm…. I headed back to the house. Stopped at the dump and pitched the [now] 4 bags of garbage I had sitting in the back……. FINALLY back at the house for some peace and quite, only to find out my Bride’s car needs another $800 worth of stuff done to it….. Dammit Emmit~!  That conversation done and settled…. sat down to unwind and try to keep my composure…. no explosion…..yet. A new email told me that an ‘expert’ on my camera is going to call me tomorrow afternoon and walk me through my camera, to help me explain some of the things I have been learning in the tutorials [and confusing the hell out of me] and answer any and ALL  questions I have about my camera set up….. OOOH Happy day~!!  I have literally been losing sleep over some of this………….. well crap…. already at my limit….. shi…. shoot.  Condensed version….. island ‘kids’ stopped by….. drank, ate, left and here I am…… munching on a chopped ham and LETTUCE sammich……. My Bride is working tomorrow and I will be sitting [semi-patiently] at my computer waiting for a call from California…. my pictures from here on out – should be MUCH better… dare I say ? Epic??  😉

Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!  [old pix]

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~!!!! ;-)
