A nice warm Sunday~~~

Slept in just a teeny tiny bit this morning and woke up comfortably in an almost chilly bedroom. The nights are amazingly chilly now and with a ceiling fan over top of us and a floor fan on medium pointed right at us – out thin little blanket feels wonderful. Slow easy start to the day. My Bride made a right tasty breakfast for us and we sat and got caught up on the world happening around us. By noon, the sun was up, bright and a little warmer than it has been the past several weeks. It felt good and helped speed up the drying process of the fairly heavy dew that had settled on my lawn that was in now need of mowing. I finally drug out the lawn mower, the weed eater and gasoline and set about getting our yard back in shape. Stopping for the occasional cigarette with Angie as she brought me out a bottle of water, spark and rehydrate. For probably the first time since we’ve been back – I worked up enough of a sweat that it was starting to drip… and it felt wonderful. It took me almost 2 hours, but that also include multiple smoke breaks….. something I don’t usually do once I start mowing. The drinks being provided at each break was nice though and helps ensure I don’t get so light headed in the evenings.

Came in and settled in on the couch for some boob tube…. we have finished our last couple of series, last one being The Queen’s Gambit [interesting series about Chess players]. We both thoroughly enjoyed it. So with no new series in mind yet- we watched the movie The Coldest Game  (oddly enough also about Chess)  and The Midnight Sky with George Clooney. We almost quit in the middle of the first one because it was getting boring, but it marginally picked up and we finished it (I’d give it a 5- out of 10) The second was much better – I’d give it a strong 7+ out of 10 (I didn’t like the way it ended).  The sun is now setting (we’re 2 hours ahead of you now) the air is cooling off and we’re still relaxing. Will probably go on the hunt for a new series to start watching.

Going to try and get license plates for my Queens car tomorrow and the island kids are talking about maybe making a Pier dive tomorrow afternoon and asked if I was interested in joining them……. if I’m done with my running…. absolutely~! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve dove the pier or with the kids……. sounds like a plan~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
