Valentine’s Day

Up this  morning a couple of times actually before I got up and stayed up. I think the day of sun, sand, swimming, eating and drinking may have caught up to me a little bit – as trips to the bathroom this morning were frequent and urgent most of the time……. some things you have to put up with. I say that as I listened to frequent weather updates from back in Indiana and an apparent impending blizzard. Well – blizzard by Indiana standards…… so my morning aggravations caused by tropical fun seem just a touch miniscule. I have spent my fair share of dealing with goofy and sometimes time stopping weather in that state, including the “big one” of ’78…… so I do not feel bad when I ‘laugh’ at folks who are waiting for the snow and hating the cold temperatures. I am obviously concerned for everyone’s well being and want them to be safe and sound, but I will continue to enjoy my Caribbean abode for now~!

Greeted my Bride who slept in a little this morning. I guess her first venture to the beach in a while tuckered her out. A good morning kiss and a Happy Valentines kiss to start our day.  For the mostly simple fact that finding hearts and flowers and cards here on the island is a challenge, which has gotten a little bit easier each year we have been here – but when you do find it – OMG is it expensive. Having been through well over 40+ Valentines Days, we agreed that the money saved by not spending on each other for that holiday would be the better, more prudent thing to do. I am not real good at it however…. just old school enough, I believe a feller ought to get his gal a little bit something…. if nothing else, just to acknowledge the special day. Which I did this morning. Under ruse of hauling the garbage to the dump cause it was getting ‘funky‘ sitting in the back of the truck and stopping to pick up another Polly’s breakfast for us – I also swung by and picked up ‘a little something’ from a roadside stand for my Bride.  Wasn’t much – but still wanted to acknowledge her on this special day.

Valentines gift out of the way, a tasty breakfast and lots of television is how we spent our Valentine’s Day. Not real special, but it was a pretty wonderful day for us, especially since we are both nursing a slight sunburn from yesterday…….. awwwe……. you all have fun with your Blizzard~~   😉

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~!!!! ;-)
