Clouds and rain

After what has been a long, dry month, we woke up this morning to clouds. Lots of clouds and the grass was wet. Very wet….. first decent rain we have had in well over a month. The clouds got heavier as the day wore on and the frequency of rain increased. Thankfully, it has not been a hard driving rain, instead a nice slow almost drizzle most of the time. That gives our now very thirsty ground time to absorb the liquid being delivered. Took our time waking up even though both of us were up a lot earlier than we should have been. We sat and drank coffee and read. Well, I spilled as much as I drank- but the effort was made. My Bride made us a wonderfully delicious breakfast. Nothing exceptional about it, but it tastier yummier than usual this morning. While we were enjoying our breakfast…. out TV turned on….by itself….. I kid you not. Weird…… I thought maybe our cable company had something to do with it, but the more I thought about it, the less sense that made. I tried to shut it off and couldn’t (it was just all static) so I unplugged it. I spent the next hour so ‘messing’ with the TV with no usable results. I then remembered something like this happening once before. Turns out, it happened when the remote died. Weird right ? So I jumped in the truck and spent a very maddening hour driving about 8 miles….. I wound up behind 6 different people, who had absolutely no where to go and all friggin’ day to get there~~~  AAARRRRGGGGHHH~!! I digress……. I got back from the local electronics store with a new remote. Dropped in some batteries and voila ~!! Back in business. Got the TV going, and decided to watch a movie…… no internet…. dammit Emmit…… reset the router…..ta-da~!! I tell you what….. (that’s an entire sentence in Louisiana)…..island life…. anyway……. finally settled in with some hot pop corn, a cold beer, my Queen and a movie~! AND- it turned out to actually be a pretty decent movie. Starring Keanu Reeves….. the movie is Replica’s. I’d give it a solid 7+ out of 10… maybe even a lite 8. If you wind up watching it, let me know what you think.

I did something today I have only done once before…… I ordered a print of one of my pictures. I was happy enough with it, that I want it on our wall. I’ll share which one it is after it comes in. Really about it. IF it dries up a little bit tomorrow, I’ll probably run the mower around the yard even though it still really don’t need it. I still want to do it because there are enough ‘sprouts’ that I want to get it all leveled out and besides…. with the rain- as soon as the sun hits it, it’ll probably jump out of the ground~! Just have to wait and see what the weather is gonna do………

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~!!!! ;-)
