A Day off………….. :-)

Slept in this morning….. and by slept in…… I was up by 06:45…. but for me – that was sleeping in. If I could have kept my bladder and belly in check – I would have went longer than that…… but the aging factor keeps creeping in…… dammit Emmit. Up, knowing I had the day off, and used the leisure to drink my Lemon water and read the news [OMG what a mess~!] and then on to the wonderous world of Face Book [OMG – what a bigger mess] but I get some outstanding laughs from it – so it is entertainment for me. If you take anything that you read on Face Book seriously…… we need to talk. My Bride made me a wonderfully delicious breakfast of bacon, sausage and milk gravy and biscuits~! Boy-Howdy did I feel special…… and I ate to my hears content…… something that I don’t much of anymore… especially when I am ‘working‘. Man that was wonderful……. Before it could all settle and “disable” me for the day – I convinced my tired old touchas to get up and get out and mow the yard….. way over due with lots of rain to nurture it…. it was looking a little wooly……… Dang, even with a tropical disturbance blowing around 20-25 mph winds… it was still hot…… makes us fat boys sweat a bunch~! I came in and hit the water and rehydrate and got cooled off – before loading up everything and heading into town……. Had to knock out the ATV yard. The plan was to mow, weed eat and then come back here and weed eat our yard……. best laid plans….. somehow…. I manage to misplace, lose, can’t find, my newly purchased spool of weed eater string, so I decided to use whatever I had on the weed eater to finish up the ATV yard. Fired up the weed eater and the first ‘bump’ to extend the line….. emptied the spool. DAMMIT Emmit~! Crap…. double crap~! So I quit where I was at. The yard look infinitely better though…….. which also means no weed eating at the house….. awwww  😉

My Bride made us drinks while I tied into my camera to find out what kind of mess I had going there……. pulled gaskets, lubed them up, reinstalled them (after breaking one) did a vacuum test on the housing (which got a big ole green light)… put everything back together….. determined I had batteries in ‘wrong’ in one of the strobes, which is why it wasn’t working…….. dammit………. So – looks like I have my camera back in operating order….. new O-rings for the camera are on order [even though they “don’t ship to the USVI”]….. if that ain’t a load of crap~!! We nuked some left over pizza….. both had our showers and ready for some of that wonderful A/C sleeping here in a bit. I lucked out and got a dentist appointment tomorrow to get the filling replaced that I lost [and give my poor old tongue a rest from probing that jagged tooth]. My Bride is going to try and get a little maintenance done on her car while I do the dentist thing….. Ought to be interesting to see which one costs the most……. but – it’s another day off~! I’m sure alcohol will be involved somewhere along the way~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
