ATV’s, Tablets and Grills……………..

Due to [apparently] every changing circumstances…. well tended to plans ALL changed……….. so today – instead of doing what I had planned on ALL week…… I got to sleep in a minute, have a nice breakfast and still make it into the ATV yard to help out the island kids. That entailed showing up to ride tail on a tour of some fun folks from Alabama……… good riders, friendly – fair questions and good tippers~! We got them back in ample to take advantage of the second half of their land and Sea package (we’re land)  😉  As it turns out, there was a second tour and Shawn had already laid claim to it — so I gathered up my camera and launched my happy a$$ right on out the gate……… (well….. it is after all Shawn’s birthday…. so I ‘had’ to let the ole Jarhead get his way)  😉

Back at the house – I uploaded my trail pictures, cleaned up, and loaded into the truck to head to mid-island. My Queen made a request last night and I was bound determined to fulfill it. She wanted/needs a new iPad/Tablet…. for her games. Her little one apparently finally bit the dust…… and I was on it~! Went to Sunny Isle where Office Depot is located. Please understand…… I would rather have my tongue branded, than go any where near this particular location on the island…… but sometimes…… just sometimes……. a feller has to do what a feller has to do. I finally made it into the store….. dealt with the required number of locals in the store who said “we are out” until I finally got one who at least acted like he cared. A looooooong ugly story later – I walked out with a tablet I’m hoping my Queen will like. From there on to  Home Depot……… Oh good….. another 2″ x 4″ across the forehead……… I am going to spare you all the sorted details of that experience… lets suffice to say — I finally left with a new grill, a grill cover and some replacement line for my weed eater.  I finally broke down and got a new grill….. I really do miss grilling food…… but with my Honey Bear and her crew coming in the end of the month – I [hope] they will want to save a ton of money and just have burgers, dogs and ‘grillin’ stuff here for most of their visit….. and I need to be ready for that~!

Back at the house, grill unloaded and set up…… edited and uploaded ATV pictures… started ‘breaking in’ the grill while I did that….. little ole multi-tasker that I am……. FINALLY got the message from my Bride that she was soon headed my way…… an hour later….. she showed up. I had drinks made….. she has her new tablet charging, still debating whether either of us are hungry enough to fire up the new grill yet or not….. but our day is happily wrapping up. Angie is working a half day tomorrow….. followed up by Mani-Pedi’s with a friend afterward…… I am back on the boat…. again out on my end of the island…….. ready to get wet…. and hoping the Sharks are extra friendly~!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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~!!!! ;-)
