Fun, food and Family…………

Not necessarily in that order…….. As most of you probably know – our oldest Daughter [Amanda] and her family have made the arduous trek to our gorgeous little island to soak up some tropical ambiance and spend a little time with us….. (hopefully not necessarily in that order) 😉  We got them settled in on our end of of the island in the same little patch of cottages that Jeni and her brood stayed in….. They seem pretty content with it. First night, it wound up getting a little later than we thought while we sipped beverages and kind of got “caught up” – not wanting to ruin the first night there by getting all the adults hammered – I ran out and picked up a bunch of pizza and garlic cheesy bread……. we munched, drank some more and chatted some more until it was agreed it was everybody’s bed time. We left them and came back to the house and pretty much fell straight into bed.  A pretty decent night’s sleep – we got up and took it easy as Amanda and her crew settled into a bit of an island morning routine. We wound up having breakfast here, while they made breakfast there…… finally getting together around lunch – Bulk of the afternoon was spent hanging out in the water, eventually breaking out the adult beverages while we floated, drank and laughed (not necessarily in that order) Knowing the longer we spent in the water – the hungrier everybody was gonna be – I called and made reservations at the little place next door (Beach Side Café)

We finally crawled out of the water around 4:00….. calmed, slightly more tanned/burnt but none the less for wear. We all went our separate ways to get showered up and changed….. meeting back at the café around 6:00. A couple more hours of fun, food and family (not necessarily in that order) before we all got up and waddled away from the table. Too full, too tired….. too much everything for anything else…. so we headed home and left Amanda and Grant to get their kiddlies in bed so they could have a couple of minutes to themselves.

Tomorrow – we are doing Discover SCUBA Dive for Grant, Charlotte and Evie….. It is also Charlottes birthday~! She said she wanted to SCUBA dive, shop and have dinner at Blues Backyard BBQ~! Gotta love a young lady with a plan —  so that’s our plan for tomorrow…… for now…. this old fat boy is pooped and ready for bed…..  take my meds, bathroom stuff, get batteries bump charged for tomorrow  and crash for the day (not necessarily in that order)   😉

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

Sadly……. as I am still trying to get pictures and stuff migrated to this new computer….. I do not have access to a lot of pictures…. so for a while….. you’ll just have to take what I can find…….  [[sorry]]

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~!!!! ;-)
