Buckle up – quite the ride…….

Jeesh….. didn’t realize it has already been that long since I written. Quite the hectic pace for the ole fat guy and his Queen. Always something going – but oh so much good stuff. We got to spend a little extra time this visit with our Louisiana family and it has done my soul a world of good.  Two nights in a row with them – last night out at their place for a good ole fashioned fish fry….. Now folks, let me tell you what. It’s been well over 4 years since I have had decently fried fish….. let alone Bass. Last night we had Bluegill, Crappie, Catfish and Bass and I ate until I couldn’t hardly breathe. The top of my tongue was just one big blister from piping hot fish – but there was lots of ice cold Budweiser to pour on top of the scalding filets to wonderfully soothe that burn. My, my, my……… getting hungry again for more, even though we just got back from a wonderful dinner at the Cork & Cleaver…. that had lots of steak and King Crab legs for my Baby….. the best thing about the meal….. was the company. For the first time in a very long time…. we got to sit and chat like regular folks, without a hundred interruptions from kids. Need to do more of those~!  Kids are wonderful, but there is a lot to be said for that adult interaction as well.

All the nights have been a blur and still oddly, I am not burning off a lot of pictures…… guess I’m just letting my brain remember everything for a change. SOO much to look back on and talk about…… but towards the end of the night last night……. I may have fell over that line of sober and messed up. I have been paying that price all day and now that I have a belly full of steak, shrimp, taters and a “couple” of drinks….. I’m ready for some shut eye.

Last minute running around tomorrow to get ready for our long day heading back to the island. I think we’re both ready. It’s been wonderful being around so much family, but we’re both ready to get back to our regular [warm] routine for a while. Some random pictures from the past couple of days……

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~!!!! ;-)
