Golfin’ and Burgers………………

Got up right around 05:10 this morning…… much, much, much too early for my tired old nash……….  but ‘we‘ had an appointment 3/4 the way across the island, and we had to leave early enough to get to it on time….  [[just as a general source of information. I have just sneezed ….. in the vicinity of of 15 times in a row]]….. My eyes are watering, my nose is running (and sore now) and the bad part is I’m not sure I’m not sure I’m done….. DAMMIT Emmit~! Understand please….. when I say sneeze…. I’m talking about those sneezes that start slightly below your knees and rocket all the way to your nose~! Holy Moley~!!! I can’t hardly breather right now…….

Anyhow—– my day started out on what is arguably one of the prettiest golf courses you ever want to venture out onto. I was going to play a [short] round of golf with my Son-In-Law Grant and my ‘Island Son’ Shawn……. an outing that proved to be much more fun than futile…… Grant was trying his level best to be the consumate professional and shoot a decent game – where as me and Shawn were out for a morning of drinking beer and having fun. Shawn had never tried to play ‘real’ golf before (putt-putt don’t count)….. and I have only done it a handful of times. Thankfully – I could NOT care less if I hit the friggin‘ ball or not…….. and Shawn was pretty much close behind me……. poor ole Grant had to suffer through our antics….. BUT – he got to play a PGA approved golf course in [arguably] one of the prettiest environments you could ever hope to play……..

We laughed and cut up and had just a really dandy time (well, me and Shawn did anyway) for 9 glorious holes…….. no records set anywhere – but I feel really secure saying all of us had a really good time~! We finally dropped our carts and clubs off and headed back to our end of the island……. just enough time for a shower and a nap (for the weenies) before gathering back up here at our house for grilled BBQ chicken wings, hot dogs, French fries and burgers. Bellies full – we sent the kiddlies outside while the adults set in the living room and basically lied to each other all evening – but it was great fun~! Everybody’s bellies full….. even the neighbors who stopped in for a bit… got their fill and headed back across yon hallway….. Wasn’t long before we ran the ‘island kids’ off — took Amanda and crew back to their hotel….. so we could get the joint cleaned up and relax a little bit before our big day tomorrow. My Queen is going to go get new tires for her ride tomorrow (seems as though we have steel belts showing on one tire) while me and the Indiana bunch do an ATV tour with Shawn and Cynthia….. should be a fun day…. at least for us…… and of COURSE there will be pictures~!

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~!!!! ;-)
