The ‘Plan’…………

A nice start to the day after a fairly reasonable night’s slumber…. the plan was to get some mowing out of the way and then enjoy the afternoon with my bride,  maybe watching movies or something……….. Ah- the best laid plans. I got my morning started according to plan with a nice breakfast but everything went kinda sideways from there….. The ‘plan‘ was to go into town and get the ATV yard weed eated and trimmed up and then come back here and knock our yard out. I use the ATV yard kind of as a warm up to our yard… but a tour this morning thwarted that plan – so I got our yard knocked and waited until the ATV yard was empty so I could get in there…… well sir – that took about 3 hours longer than I expected, so my shirt, fully soaked in sweat had a chance to dry and I cooled off and mostly got out of the mood to do much of anything – but I finally got the all clear and headed into town to finish the rest of my ‘plan‘. That yard knocked out in short order, I was once again back here and waiting for my shirt to dry again. I got my equipment cleaned, dried and put away and I finally cooled off enough to get a shower and get the latest layer of grass clippings rinsed off of me. My Bride made us dinner, we watched a glorious sunset and now here sit after getting off of the phone with Stephie and the boys trying to come up with something for you all.

I am in kind of a fog over the whole Sister thing….. she continues to go downhill, very slowly and the feeling of helplessness is almost overwhelming. I am trying not to dwell on it – but I have never been in this particular situation before. I told Angie – everybody in my life that has died, was alway sudden and I was informed of the death, with the exception of Dad and that was very quick and a lot different circumstances. So I’m in this weird kind of fog, with not knowing and having to wait and wonder. Being so far away doesn’t help either….. So many things going through my brain about the whole thing. I don’t want to bring you all down with it – just letting you know, so if some of these posts seem to ramble [more than usual] please bear with me while I sort it out.

Providing I don’t get a text or phone call by morning – I have a club dive scheduled that I am supposed to be on. It is with Cane Bay this time – so I’ll be perfectly at home – plus will have a dozen members of the Dive Club with me. It’ll give me a really good chance to practice on my people shots underwater and hopefully get some more fun shots for you all….. until the next time……….

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~!!!! ;-)
