Wrapping it up………

Up really early this morning after an absolutely miserable nights sleep. Among other distractions while I tried to sleep, our resident area Peacocks are apparently in the midst of mating season and the ones hanging out around here are….. how shall I say……amorous….. horny as it were…….. and they ‘squawked’ all night…..all night. Good grief~~~ I hope they get over that soon. I got up and busied myself like I do almost every morning, sipping lemon water, catching up on the news, bump charging all batteries and loading them in the cameras and lights, before making me a right tasty breakfast and settling in to see what is going on in the ever messed up world of Face Book. I had most of the morning to myself as since the Peacocks get weirdly quiet when the sun starts coming up, my bride, who had apparently as almost a fitful nights sleep as I did, slept in enjoying the quiet for her slumber. She came stumbling out a couple of minutes before I had to head out for the day. A really small boat with only 3 guests on the boat today. Water was reasonably calm and we had decent visibility and managed to pretty decent dives. Sharks, turtles and sting rays [[oh my]]….. no Green Eels  🙁  I managed a couple of dozen savable pictures~! Headed back to the house, looking forward to running Stephanie’s friends around the island tomorrow and a longer than usual time off (our slow season is in full swing now). I had to swing by the local pharmacy and pick up a couple of prescriptions. I stopped and got half of what I was supposed. Seems as one script expired and Doc could not be reached to renew it, so I guess I’ll go through the long weekend on half of my BP meds…… I tell ya, sometimes this place…………………… anyhow~~ I pulled out of the parking lot and just barely made it through an ugly busy intersection when my truck sputtered and died…….What the Hell??? I quickly pushed it into neutral and luckily had just enough momentum to coast across the lane and into the grass on the side of the road. DAMMIT Emmit~!! I tried multiple times to restart it, but no dice. It almost acted like it was out of gas. My gas gage only works some of the time- but I am satisfied that it has ample gas in it. Now the quality of that gas is a whole different conversation. I have had zero problems with the truck in the last year, so not sure what to think……. clogged up fuel filter maybe ?? Fuel pump ?? DAMMIT EMMIT~!! Here I was going to have all these days to work on the body and try and get it back in shape….. dammit, dammit, dammit~!!! I’ve had the truck towed to the shop. Course, they couldn’t get to it today and they’re closed tomorrow, Sunday and Monday (because of the holiday) so it’ll be Tuesday before they can even look at it. Dammit Emmit~!

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~!!!! ;-)
