A day on the island…..

Actually slept in a teeny tiny bit this morning after a mediocre nights sleep. Got up and settled in at the table for a fairly relaxing start to my day. A wonderfully delicious light breakfast and I was soon out the door tending to some odds and ends that I have let go since my recent employ. Nothing noteworthy, just time consuming crap and driving around getting agitated with folks that don’t know how to drive. Running all done – back at the house by 1:00~ish…… spent a couple of minutes going through a whole butt-load of mail… thankfully mostly crap mail… a bill or two and a new Readers Digest…… mail sorted – and even though I was not in the mood – I put on my comfy shorts and some shoes and went out to tackle the lawn…… Haven’t touched it in about 3 weeks….. and it still looked halfway decent – but the random stranglers were starting to grow together creating a fairly ratty looking environment. So I went out and fired up the lawn mower and for the next hour, stirred up a LOT of dust and leveled out the grass in the yard. We are getting DRY here…. the grass is now crunchy, except in the spots where I rinse my dive gear (lookin’ really good right there). Thought I was done – but had just enough stragglers, I felt compelled to break out the weed eater and do some trimming there too. Another 20 minutes or so with it and I was done….. dusty as get out…. but done. Looked like I just came back from an ATV tour. We need some rain…… bad enough with the crunchy grass, the dust and all….. but soon we are going to run out of water in our cistern….. which means we will have to start buying it. Dammit Emmit~! Definitely don’t want to have to do that because it is almost expensive as our electricity. Almost. So we all are collectively keeping our fingers crossed for some rain……

Spent the rest of the afternoon at the computer with a fan blowing on me….. Summer is about here and it is starting to get toasty warm here. Last dive the water temperature had gone up a degree according to my new dive computer (loaner)…..on that note- My new vest showed for diving, to help keep me warm~~ Which is about par for the course now that the water is warming back up. Oh well- I’ll have it ready for next year~! Really about it…… typical island day. My Bride has dinner going…. stuffed green peppers and probably corn or green stuff. Some pictures left over from yesterday…..

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~!!!! ;-)
