Island power and internet…….

AHhhhh WAPA….. you wonderfully magnificent piece of shi….. poop.  Settled in last night to regale you all of my latest Caribbean adventure…. just to have ALL the lights in the house glow BRIGHTLY for a milli-second……. sink down to a text book ‘brown out’ before coming back to standards……. jeeez – ya gotta love the power company on this island…… the ensuing result is we lost our internet….. which is not a huge surprise…..  but it left me unable to ‘communicate’ with you all…… by the time we got our internet back…… it was late…. How Late ???  😉  Anyhow – yesterday was a gloomy, overcast, rain off and on all friggin’ day…. and cool….. it barely made it to 80°….. AWWeEEeeee… right ?  😉  It was a lazy day – even by island standards….. watched several really stupid movies…. stupid enough, I don’t want to share details…… none worth recommending this time. We drank, ate, drank, ate, drank, drank….. oh yea – and drank……. It was a good day other than the cheesy movies……….

Today was a day for my Queen to run around and stimulate the local economy while I ‘piddled’ around the house. No- I did not leave little puddles of liquid everywhere, but worked on odds and ends that needed tending to. That and a lot of time online…. looking up everything under the sun…… how to fix, etc. That done, Angie finally rolled in, drinks were made and now we are discussing plans for Christmas day – trying to figure out how/when to see everybody. The fact that we have been drinking for the last 3+ hours have added a delightful sense of humor to an otherwise confusing string of text messages…… I’ll sort it out in the morning……. I hope.

I have an appointment at the BMV tomorrow to try and get my Queen’s car legally licensed…… I’ll tell you right up front – I’d rather have my tongue branded than do that – but rather than pay the $100-$200 “expeditor” fee I usually pay – I’m gonna give it a shot. I may have to have a shot or two before I get there. You think the BMV in the states is bad ?? You ought to see this outfit – but I am going in with a [mostly] clear mind and will try to have a good attitude when I get there. Wish me luck~! I might mention…. I made this appointment in August~! So for now – some more dive pictures….. my dive shop is letting me down, as they have a visiting family of 10 that has the boat chartered for the next week – so I am not getting the ” Hey- ya wanna get on the boat” calls I usually get. Depressing, as I wanted to dive my brains out before we headed back to the mainland…… oh well….. stuff happens~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
