Oh my peoples…….

Talk about a day going to crap in a handbasket……. the plan, was to bid my Queen adieu as she lit out for work this morning – then spend the rest of the bulk of the day getting lawn maintenance done on the spots I am now ‘responsible’ for…… ah, the best laid plans….. I did get my Bride on her way for her day of labor at Blues – doing the prep work for them she now manages. I came in and made me the kind of breakfast that suits me….. which involves a lot of fatty meat and eggs, cooked to my specifications…… and then came the rains. Dammit Emmit….. large black clouds that sprinkled intermittently, with several large wonderful claps of thunder that rolled what seemed like endlessly out over the open sea. While I dearly love listening to that – the rains kept my lawns soggy enough that mowing was absolutely out of the question…… DAMMIT Emmit~!!! I sat and read enough FB to make me want to vomit – so I shut it off, jumped in the truck and made the trek to mid-island to Office Max for a new mouse for my laptop. I really can’t complain about it though – as I have had that particular mouse for probably 7 years that I can think of it – and the poor old girl was just worn out. She has been through Daughters and Grandkids abusing it, drug all over the Caribbean and always came through for me. Her scrolling wheel however couldn’t take it any more and finally went to that big that ‘Window‘ in the sky…… see what I did there ???  😉 Anyhow – lost as I can be without it – so I rectified that this morning.

A 3:00 call from  my Queen saying come get me – prodded me from my hunched over position that I had lapsed into over my laptop….. our illustrious mechanics here on the island, that said the work they had to do was a 4 hour job – apparently couldn’t get it done in 8 hours and they would ‘probably’ need to keep the car overnight…… dandy….. just #$%^&*(O dandy…… but I dutifully jumped into my truck to fetch her. Well go figure….. I was at Blues…. I had to stay and have at least one drink before I hauled her back to the house…… LOLOLOLOL…. one drink…. That is some funny sh….. stuff right there~! Countless drinks – 2 rounds of shots that I remember  – and I told my Queen I was ready to go…. somewhere in that time frame…. she got her car back….. not finished…. but at least she had her car…… ya gotta love island life….. most of the time. I told her I was stopping for chicken on the way home…. I had an urge…… good old KFC — jeeesh what a cluster****….. but I finally got most of an order and pulled into the house just about the same time as my Bride…….

Back inside – into our ‘comfy‘ clothes and sat down to waller in the greasy, overspiced goodness that is island KFC…… sooooo good. I’m probably gonna regret it about 03:00 in the morning — but I’ll worry about it then….. right now I want to get up some pictures I hope you haven’t seen yet (I lose track pretty easy) and then get my tired, old, half shot, sorry a$$  butt in bed………. The plan, tomorrow, after I’m sure I’m done with [processing the KFC] – is to load up one of the 4-wheelers with all my lawn maintenance stuff – and the spend the day on the mountain top, grooming some of our scenic overview stops….. all this rain and sunshine – they’ve gotten kinda wooly~~~ Wish me luck~~~!

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~!!!! ;-)
