Sunday Funday…. not so much~~

A little later to bed last night after watching another Robin Williams movie (Worlds Greatest Dad [night before last – 8 out of 10]) and Angriest Man in Brooklyn [last night – weak 7 out of 10) and an episode or two of Will & Grace… logic says go to bed a little later (so you can sleep in)….. factor in getting up around 4:30 to go whizz (so you can sleep in) and you get…… up at 06:20 anyway because you’re awake and don’t want to wake your Queen up with your flopping and wallering… around in the bed……. dammit emmit~~ My Queen finally made her appearance a couple of hours later…. we did our usual routine except me doing dishes, I once again headed out to commence more work on DD 2.0.

A little bit more relieved – I could see where this was heading and felt a wee bit better about my decision to try this. Now to see how the actual body work was gonna go. I brushed up a couple of extra spots I found in the light of the new day and finally set about to check out the “island Bondo”.  Definitely not the stuff I grew up with…. and it took a little experimenting before I got the hang of the right mixture, but when I finally did – I went to work. It was kinda cool…. knowledge that I haven’t used in almost 50 years came rushing back. I wound up going in and getting my phone and letting Pandora play while I worked. In a FUBAR’d kinda way…. I was transported back to the days of trying to keep my old Chevy from falling apart…. working on the body with music playing to keep my brain occupied and soothed. Only difference now is the music is really old country [versus brand new rock-n-roll] and I’m an old, fat, out of shape, bald headed man instead of the up and coming young hippie I was back then…. at least that’s how I saw it in my mind…… humor me…. after all, now I’m an old, fat, out of shape, bald headed man~~~  I was going to LOL about that, but the more I think about it – it ain’t really that funny….. Dammit Emmit~!! Anyhow….. after what turned out to be a much longer day than I planned…… DD 2.0 is looking improved. Most of the big holes have been filled and covered. I did a little bit of preliminary sanding, just to get a feel for it – and I have high hopes, when it’s all said and done…. DD 2.0 will be looking good. For now though, since I stopped mid patch….. she still looks like an island truck, just one that is seeing some love. Will probably be next week end before I do anything else since I am diving for the next !!!!!!! YAY~!!!

Good Night Y’all – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!

Man– this stuff really does expand~!!

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~!!!! ;-)
