Surprise kinda day…………

Up at a presentable hour this morning without having to make a mad dash to the bathroom. I’m trying something new – and so far it seems to be working nicely – but I don’t want to elaborate yet, cause I’m afraid I’ll jinx it  – but if it works it will be a really good thing~!

Up and in town by 09:15 to get the ATV business open and ready for the day…. That didn’t go as smooth as it probably should have… but we adapted and got everything ready for the day. The ride started out rough… having to switch bikes for one of the riders 5 minutes into the ride….. That done, off we went. One ‘new’ rider (who admitted to be new, which is a very smart thing to do) put his bike “in the weeds” [off the path] 3 different times – but nothing intense and the ride went without to many other issues. One of the ‘experienced’ return riders, managed to hit a mean little rut and rolled the bike over on it’s side in the process. Thankfully, she wasn’t hurt and neither was the bike. I got it wrestled upright, off of the [small] tree it was now straddled and back onto the trail. Always an exciting time up on the mountain top. Thankfully – the rest of the ride back was uneventful and we got our customers back, happy and mostly unscathed. Rest of the ‘work’ day wasn’t quite as smooth, but again, we adapted and finally wrapped the day up. I took my Bride back to the house and I spent the next 3 hours contending with stuff that need to be contended with….. and gonna leave it at that. I finally got to spend an hour on one of my projects (getting a porch added to the Atv office)….. not any surprise to me…. nothing about that went smooth either. By now it is 4:00pm….. I’m soaked in sweat, tired, aggravated, semi-bloody and ready to call it a day. Which I did. Home to my Queen, who started plying me with booze. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset… she made a mighty fine meal of pork chops, smashed taters and corn on the cob while I edited pictures from the day. She is now facetiming with our youngest Granddaughter while I chat with you…. it is great listening to it. (Yes – I got a few minutes of conversation with Kinsley and Kylen)

I have got some domesticating to do tomorrow while my Bride works at Blues…. once I finish my domesticating – I’m gonna try and get in and work on the porch for a bit…… more ATV tours scheduled for the remainder of the week….. so it should be a right busy week for the old fat boy…. also have to slide by the Dive Shop and ‘negotiate‘ a new dive package….. so once I’m done running around the mountain tops – I can get back to diving my brains out~! (I also heard back from the stateside dive shop – they offered me a nice deal for my pictures~! More on that as it develops~!!)

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~!!!! ;-)
