Lower key Sunday……..

Slept in just a teeny tiny bit this morning – but wound up rolling out with the dang-est [non alcoholic] headache you’d ever want to deal with. I have found recently, that in ‘just the right… easily to obtain’ position, I wake up with a terrible headache. I think part of it is that beat up a$$ pillow I am using…. because I can make the headache ‘go away’ if I fool with it a little bit. But – I had to pee bad enough, I didn’t have that luxury this morning….. Dammit Emmit~! Up… bath room stuff all done…. popped a handful of aspirin and by the time I finished my second cigarette of the day – I was good to go. Spent the next ½ hour or so catching up on the news….. jeez ain’t that a mess, before my Bride joined me. Getting to where I don’t even want to look at the news any more – so I opened FB……. I almost have to ”laugh” at everything I see on there now, because it is SOOOOO twisted and distorted… to me it is funny. Sadly, however, there appears WAY too many folks who believe the garbage they are seeing on there. Pitiful………. just down right pitiful.

I ‘knew’ I should get in at least a couple of miles of walking this morning – but I just could not make myself do it. Bummed about things going on here on the island….. even more bummed about other things going on in my life right now back in the states and even more so – about my inability to do a )%$#(*&^%$  thing about it…… just not sure what to do now…………. Dammit Emmit~!!!  In the mist of all that… a text from my ‘damn‘ neighbor popped in to warm my heart and helped with renewed hope that everything will be ”alright” and that he was there for me……. no comment from his better half…… She was probably teaching a bible study or something….. luv ya neighbor~! That was a follow up from a previous neighbor [and my # 1 blog fan] lifting my spirits with a FB PM- that just made my heart smile. Amazing what words from loved ones [near and far] can do to lift ones spirit. Thank you BOTH soooo much~!

Watched one movie – but I thought it was going to be good enough, that I actually paid to ‘rent’ it. $ 4.00 bucks – woohooo big spender….. but as it turns out – it was worth it~! Called GEOSTORM. Out there….. waaaaayout out there….. but still a good flick. Giving it a good strong 8………

My Bride invited the island kids in for dinner…. using that term loosely…. burgers and fries….. but they came in… we ate, smoked cigars and enjoyed each others company…. came in for some righteous watermelon the kids brought and a some Lemon cake my Queen made. We talked about everything under the sun for a while before I finally had my fill and ” lovingly” told them to get the hell out~!  LOL~~~~ They’re safely home atop of their mountain now and I’m here trying to come up with 500 words [which I JUST did]. Diving tomorrow~!!!!!

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~!!!! ;-)
