A day off……?

Slept in a little bit this morning and was rewarded for it by having to hurry up and go out and jump my Bride’s car [battery is apparently ka-put]. She dropped it off at the garage before going to spend her day at Blues. She just barely got to have any kind of morning before taking off….. that’ll teach both of us to sleep in~! After she left – I finished my one cof of cuppee before putting on my traveling duds and heading out for the BMV. I was informed by phone last night, my paperwork and plates were ready for the car~! This has been going on since very early January~!!! Still – I was not excited about having to go…. just a hunch. I waited patiently [as I could] in line until it was my turn at the window. Told her why I was there and she hunted for a bit and finally said yes – here it is. I paid my $49.00 and she slid out a wad of paperwork along with a new title, registration and inspection sticker. Ermazing~!! I stood there for a couple more minutes before she said I could ‘move on’……. UHMmmm…. no— where are my license plates ?? More shuffling of papers…… (The line, that had 3 people in it, now has about a dozen people – all giving me the stink eye for being up there for so long….  like it was my fault) ……here, you will need to fill this out and have it notarized and then come back to the window.   UHMmm….. I don’t think so…. I ‘had’ everything I needed when you all took it away from me back in January….. (insert an eye roll you could actually hear) More paper work shuffling…. some grumbling that did not sound encouraging…. more paper being shuffled….. AH- Here it is… That’ll be $71.00. What?? Does that include a Senior discount…. No Ma’am I don’t want to start over [sliding her the bank card]….. Thank you Ma’am…. have a good day………….. I thought the folks in line were going to start applauding…..all while still giving me the stink eye. Anyhow — I made sure I had all the right stuff and skee-daddled~! Turns out I have 2 new registrations…. figured out which one is the right one and the second one got shredded….. that person can go get their own stink eye~!

Back at the house, cleaned up a little bit and then tied into a a waaaay past due yard…… good grief. The rains we have been getting not only filled all the mud holes up on the trails… it’s had the grass growing at double time and with family and trails, I had not been staying up with it. Plus it was good and humid today – so I was drenched after the almost 2 hours it took me to get it done. Sitting in front of a fan….. I just finished paying bills and my Bride should be home any minute….. so [hopefully] only one more day of trails before I can get back into the water~!

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~!!!! ;-)
