4 Years

A quiet start to our Sunday today. Slept in ever so slightly before getting up to start our day. My Queen following me as soon as I came out of the bathroom. Had a nice breakfast of Biscuits, Sausage and Gravy. The sun shined brilliantly all morning and a very comfortable 84 degrees. A nice stronger gust of wind every once in a while helped dry the grass out just enough I finally got up and went out and mowed. Mowing and weed eating done, I got a shower and sitting here on line while watching the Eagles get their a$$ romped by the Buc’s. My bride just made us a drink and we are discussing what we’re gonna do for dinner. It has been decided that I’m gonna grill up some burgers. We haven’t had them in a while, so as soon as I finish this…. grilled burgers coming up~!

Today…. actually this evening about 10:45 pm, will mark 4 years to the day we stepped foot on this little rock and declared it as our new home. That night was a whirlwind. We were running late, (airlines fault, not ours) the people that met us at the airport was PO‘ed because we were so late and wanted to get us to our place asap. We both wanted a cigarette, which did not bode well with our very impatient escort, the line at the care rental place took forever, which also did not set well with our escort and then they took even longer bringing our car to us. We finally got our car, we finally got our bags, finally got a smoke and got into our car. Oh— and it was raining like a cow pi$$i….. peeing on a flat rock,,,,, and away we went. In the dark, wrong side of the road, no street lights, and going like a bat out of hades……. it only went South once we got to our place, but I am not going to relieve that nightmare right now……. Looking back, I’m really surprised we wound up staying here on this island, our budget was already shot, the people we had dealt with [up to that point] were RUDE, just nothing went right……. but am Oh so glad we did. It ain’t been easy….. but still glad we did. Some times it seems like we have been here our whole lives and other times it seems like just a couple of weeks. Probably more recollections tomorrow… Apparently no boat tomorrow due to lack of customers, so another day off….. good and bad. I have some running to do so I can get that done…… but that also means I’m not diving. Right now though, I’m hungry….. and I’m cooking…. so I’ll catch ya tomorrow~!

Good Night Y’all ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ 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~!!!! ;-)
