SUPPOSED to be a down day…….

I slept in a teeny tiny bit this morning after retiring for the night at a reasonably decent hour with a reasonably decent amount of alcohol in me….. only got really light headed once and I may have ‘agged’ that one on by bending over at the waist trying to pick up a very uncooperative pill I dropped. Trying to get back into the habit of eating better…. starting with breakfast – especially when I have a big day ahead… yesterday was riding trails. The riding part [other than loosening up stiff joints], is really pretty easy – it’s all the other stuff – jumping off the bike and running to the people who have got themselves in a jam…. running around tending to them at the scenic view places and then of course, washing and tending to the bikes at the end of the day. All of that was much easier yesterday as I started out with a right fine breakfast and did my best to stay hydrated during a very hot day. Still, I was looking forward to a day with nothing scheduled and taking my damned old sweet time doing it……… I indulged in a little bigger breakfast than usual – having some hash browns with my steak and eggs…… yes, steak and eggs – it pays to bring home that big ole chunk of meat that your Queen didn’t want to finish at dinner out a couple of days earlier…. I ran into town and dropped off a flash drive at the dive shop…. owner was needing them for more website design. That is a good thing for me as it will mean compensation in some form or another a little bit down the road. Finally back – I settled in on the laptop and the world that is FB. What a mess….. couldn’t take it much more and got up and did dishes while my Bride settled in with her newest game of Resident Evil 6….. When I reached under the sink – I noticed the paper towel the little grease can sits on was wet…… dammit Emmit. Further investigation revealed some pretty funky stuff leaking from the trap under the sink…… Dammit Emmit~!! So I finished the dishes, had Angie clean all of ‘her’ stuff out from under the sink and I crawled in to do my thing. Once a plumber – I guess, always a plumber. Thankx Dad. That done, mess cleaned up – crap put back under the sink… I settled back into my day of doing nothing. That was until I found what appeared to be a really good deal on a really good mattress. I hate the new mattress we bought and the #$%^&* store owner won’t do anything about it – so I jumped at it. Had to drive to mid-island… negotiated the deal – wrestled the very big Queen size mattress into the truck, strapped it down and hauled it back. Moved the current mattress into our now jammed packed full extra bedroom and then wrestled the new, really big, mattress into our bed frame. Dammit Emmit,  that’s a lot harder to do than it used to be. A tasty meal of ham, green beans and a couple slices of fried taters, dishes done, bed remade and Mama playing her game. The sun is setting giving us another gorgeous sunset…… and I get to dive tomorrow afternoon….. all is right in our little piece of the world again. (now to see how we done on the mattress)

Another request for good thoughts and prayers for a Brother of mine. He recently went through Prostate surgery for Cancer and is not doing as good as was hoped.  Ricky – my Brother…… Best wishes for your rapid healthy recovery. Hang in there~!

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~!!!! ;-)
