Happy Independence Day~!

Up much, much earlier than I intended, but my stomach this time was the culprit. It had things to do and was NOT gonna take no for an answer……. not even a “just another couple of minutes”……. and after I was done……. it just didn’t make any sense to go back to bed – so I stayed up and enjoyed and extra something of minutes of quiet. Camera’s, lights and batteries all loaded and ready to go, a unique breakfast. After making myself some tuna salad last night…. I got to wondering what it would taste like to dump a can of [drained] tuna in with my scrambled eggs in the morning. So I tried it. Probably won’t be doing that again anyway soon…….. it wasn’t bad…… but it wasn’t something I would look forward to again…… but now I know~!! Instead of my standard 2 eggs and and a chunk of Kielbasa….. I have been upping it to 3 eggs [scrambled] and no meat. I miss my meat…… well now that didn’t sound right did it ??  I miss my sausage….. well crap, that wasn’t a heckva lot better….. I miss my Kielbasa~! I actually miss my Lil Smokies that my Damn Neighbor turned me on to some “100” years ago. Can’t find them beggars on the island anywhere. Dammit Emmit. Speaking of our Damn Neighbors….. had a very pleasant phone conversation with them last night. Skipping all the drudgery details….. they re looking into maybe coming to our little rock for their work~!!!!! They have ‘met’ Kathy….. the traveling nurse I told you about a bit back and discussed some details and think that maybe a month or so here is doable……. Katie bar the door~!!! I don’t know if the island is ready for that. Not sure my liver is ready for that…. but I know my heart is ready to sit and discuss some of the most inane Bull$h*t imaginable…….. something we used to do a lot of…… I gotta tell ya— I am beyond excited at this prospect~!!! More as that develops~!

Today’s dives were pretty mundane….. I hate to say it….. but just okay…… I mean, I still got good fun pictures, but just not a ‘yell it from the mountaintop’ kinda day….. I have already went out and mowed a radical strip of grass across the alley from the house. It got that snort of rain the other day and you can almost watch it growing….. which means I’m going to have to resume mowing……. Dammit Emmit~! Scheduled an “island shoot” with my Island “kids” for their Daughter….. (NO…. I ain’t taking it past Island Kids…. whether my bride likes it or not~! She can be an Island Grandma if she wants) but I am looking forward to that — That should be a really fun day~! For now, I need a bite to eat and a shower, so we can get ready for the fireworks show….. we’ll see if it’s over 7 minutes  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
