and it’s still Saturday~~~

Laid in bed a little longer this morning fighting off the almost painful bladder pressure I had going- reveling in the fact that I did not have to get up for anything in particular this morning and got to ‘sleep in’. My Bride made several early morning trips to the bathroom – which kept me just awake enough to realize that I had to whizzz really bad. I held off and enjoyed her snuggling up next to me each time she came back to bed. A mostly Northern breeze that cropped up in the middle of the night helped keep our bedroom a little cooler than usual and it felt really good. Her persistent shuffling around after the last trip kept me awake and very aware of the impending need to get up and by 06:30 – I couldn’t take it any longer and got up. I may be bragging just a little bit – but we were both in bed by shortly after 8:00pm last night – so I done really good~! Still fairly dark…. no breeze – but it wasn’t the breath taking hot air that has greeted us in the morning this past month or so……. I done all of my bathroom stuff and settled in to read the headlines……….

My Bride slept in another hour and a half or so — which delighted me to no end. We enjoyed a quiet morning before having a right tasty breakfast. While Angie did dishes….. I scrapped myself up and forced me to go out and mow the yard. Probably the last friggin’ thing I wanted to do – but it’s one of those things that has ‘has’ to be done. Anticipating a busy week of diving – I didn’t want to wait another week, as I would probably need a bush hog to mow it by then. I really ought to do it in the morning when it is a LOT cooler….. but NOOOOooooo.…. lets wait until almost noon – when it’s really good and toasty out there~!  An hour or so and a very wet T-Shirt later – our yard was done. I came in the house to cool off only to find out the power had gone and was still out…….. Dammit Emmit~! So I swallowed a bottle of water and went outside to sit on the tail gate of the truck in the shade….. there was a nice breeze out there that helped cool the old fat boy off. Cooled off…… I loaded all the gear in the truck, gave my Bride a kiss and headed into town to mow the ATV yard. After all, it was Sunday, they should be closed IF the yard needed mowing……. At my Queens bidding – I took a bottle of rehydrate with me…… as I rolled past the yard – it was filled with people and machines…… WTH ???? Working on a ‘Sunday’???   Shawn waved as I rolled on by and headed for the dump to drop off a bag of gar-bage’ I had in the bed that was rapidly becoming odoriferous……  For whatever reason…. I have had it in my [apparently very empty] head…… today was Sunday…… I tried to pull up the Colts game….not~! I need to quit taking days off……. it’s confusing……..

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~!!!! ;-)
