Friends, Alcohol, Food, Trails, Diving and PIZZA~!

Hello, hello, hello……. been a couple of [very good] days…….. didn’t do much yesterday morning…. left out early yesterday afternoon to meet some of our ‘cronies‘ from Blues at a new place opening up that offered an extensive happy hour menu of deep fried ‘stuff‘……. yaaaassss indeed……. we got there and was greeted by the “Blues crew” already there. It is nice to be still be considered part of that gang even though we don’t frequent the place near as often as we used to…… The server [finally] came to take our food order….. and I made it real easy for her [I thought]…… I handed her the menu we had at the table and said I want “1 of everything”…… I really didn’t think it was that complicated….. and once I assured her I wasn’t trying to be a smart a$$….. she smiled, gave me a sideways look and walked off……. flash forward 45 minutes later….. several items started trickling out…….. nothing other than the shrimp was noteworthy….. sliders, fried pickles, dang….. I can’t even remember what else we got….. I do know I only got about half of what I ordered….. bummer…. I was really looking forward to the wings and the Mozzarella sticks…..  I strongly suspect – this was this young lady’s first week at this particular job….. maybe even her first day….. whatever – she was really bad at it. She called in backup from another server and it helped [mildly] but the service really made the evening slump. Wasn’t just us…. there was probably 15-20 of ‘us’ and we all struggled to get a drink when you wanted one. Most people started ordering 2 at a time – which did help a little. We were just a bit “tired” by the time we got back to the house – and I opted out of trying to sit at the table and write versus, plopping down on the couch and pretty much falling right straight to sleep..

Another flash forward to this morning…… woke up slowly while starting our day while I waited for a call from the ‘kids‘ to say they were on their way into the shop. Shawn had requested I lend a hand finishing up the last bit of clearing trails. He finally admitted even for an old Air Force guy – I was decent help for that task……… We finished that and headed into town to swap brush clearing gear for diving gear….. and soon wound up in the clear cool blue waters of the West end headed for the Frederiksted Pier….. one of the consistently top rated sites in the world~! It did not disappoint….. we dropped down onto 6 turtles…… Cynthia said 8…… but not sure……. but pictures…… smack my mouth, did I get some pictures for you all…… also a Seahorse~!!!!!! A stingray and Dolphins would have made that the perfect dive~~~!! (Going into condensed version for brevity) – Ended the dive and the day with PIZZA and good cold beer!!! Was tired enough I was gonna cop out again as I still haven’t my shower yet….. but had to share…..

Good Night Ya’ll + + + + + + + + + + + + + Thankx for stopping in~!

Vera – the last couple of pictures have an Eel in them…… <3

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~!!!! ;-)
