Laboring…. yea verily~~~

Tried to sleep in a little bit this morning – but due to call of nature that didn’t pan out some good…… Up and a slow, easy start to the morning – after a delicious breakfast my Queen made for us – I loaded into the truck and headed for my latest project. I got there and was rapidly immersed in trying to get the framework done on the porch. I wound up calling my bride in to make an ’emergency’ run to Home Depot for me [I had to call an audible on some of the stuff I needed for the job] – and she went and got what I needed while I stayed extremely busy putting the porch together. My Queen back, stuff I needed in place — I am happy…… check that – I am tickled to death to say I once again got everything done I wanted to get done + a little bit more. By then, it was 4:00 and time for me to call it a day. I cleaned up my mess and ‘limped‘ back to the house – worn down from a day of the kind of labor I am [obviously] no longer used to~!

My bride plied me with alcohol, fed me a wonderful meatloaf dinner with green and orange stuff and some smashed taters. That mixed with a handful of aspirin and multiple drinks — I am quite sated right now and anxiously awaiting a shower. Got a nice little surprise from the states… from a Daughter who knows my passion for German Potato Balls…… Just found out today – we are now working Thanksgiving morning…… but have a nice meal ‘out’ planned for the afternoon….. so the Potato Dumplings will have to wait – rest assured, I will make a pig out of myself with them when I do make them though. Surprise packages from loved ones is always a wonderful thing….. especially if it involves food~!

We have one tour for sure tomorrow morning – possibly two….. so a shower and sleep is in order right now….. maybe some roofing if the tours end early enough….

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~!!!! ;-)
