Holy Crap what a day……..

I slept ‘in‘ this morning….. usually when I feel my Queen get up, I give her enough time to get her bathroom stuff out of the way, then I get up, make the bed, and open up the bedroom before coming out to join her. Not so much this morning. I think the walk yesterday and [maybe] some booze may have aided in my tired-assness….. is that a word? in my state of slumber and allowing me to snooze an extra bit. Anyhow – I managed an additional ½ hour of sleep before joining her this morning. Slow start to the morning and she finally made us a breakfast – first one in about a week or so…… and we ate and lounged until I started feeling guilty about not ‘doing anything’ – so while I convinced my Bride to sit down and prop her feet up with a fan on her – I headed out for some lawn maintenance. While the grass wasn’t really out of control….. we had patches that were knee high…. and that just drives me crazy – so while my Queen relaxed, I pulled out the gas, weed eater and lawn mower and set in to rectifying the condition of our yard. Total time spent actually mowing and weed eating was probably just over an hour  or so, but water and smoke breaks drug that out to probably just over 2 hours….. still not bad for an old, fat, out of shape fat body.

That done, I sat down to cool off and peruse FB for the latest gossip and other comical ‘stuff‘ that page has become…… First thing I see, is the Governors’ announcement, they are shutting down the USVI because of a big outbreak of ”COVID crap” on St. Thomas. Dammit EMMIT~!!! …. NO – scratch that — G*DDAMMIT Emmit~!! Not even our island and they are shutting the whole friggin bunch of islands down. The small business’ of this island was just starting to recuperate from that last shut down – and here we go again….. my heart goes out to those business owners…… sadly, I don’t think some of them will come back from this round…….. What I wouldn’t give for an hour of absolute power to help fix this mess…. and I think I  could….. but that is just the musings of one old fat dude, with a life time of experience [that has been drinking]… but still think I could do it. It also scares the bejeezus  out of me that it may interfere with us getting back to the states for the holidays with our kids. Please cross  your fingers for me that it don’t come to that – because it’s probably gonna cost me a fortune [and maybe probably arrested] to make sure we do get back…… DAMMIT EMMIT~!!!

Wow…. didn’t realize there was a rant in that….. any how….. I did get the yard mowed and weed ate [?] …… helped [try to] calm down [small business owner] neighbor who came over to rant about the latest stupidity of our Governor by plying him with alcohol. He seemed much calmer when he finally wandered off. My Queen made us pork chops, smashed taters and a veggie medley and here I am. Don’t have any new pictures for you – so will have to resort to ‘old ones you may have not seen yet’. From the sound of it….. new pictures may be a while.  🙁

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~!!!! ;-)
