Up early on my first day off in a bit to make sure my Queen got a hearty breakfast. I made her, her egg & cheese sammich. She surprised me this morning and said yes when I asked her if she wanted a second one~! I got her on her way and then made me a hearty breakfast anticipating a busy day. We had a couple of respectable showers during the night, but I figured the grass would be mow-able by noon or so. I worked on assembling and trying to understand our new vacuum cleaner. I perused FB while I ate my breakfast and then got my diving log up dated and cleaned up breakfast dishes. I wanted to get some pictures of our Flamboyant trees before they start losing their color. I grabbed my land camera and headed out. Got to my first location and I’ll just be dipped if it didn’t start sprinkling just as I got out of the truck. I swear that camera attracts rain~! That is a bad thing because that camera is a supreme weeny when it comes to moisture of any kind. (kind of ironic huh?) The sprinkles passed and the sun peaked out a little bit, so I started shooting. I wound up going to a half dozen different spots, ducking rain showers as I went. There was one last location I had intended to hit, but the clouds had built up and it was a steady down pour by then…. so I just headed on back to the house.

The battery was charged up on the new vacuum, so I tried it out. Wow…… does a really nice job. I’m almost ready to start going barefoot in the house, it did such a good job on the floors. There are a couple of attachments I want/need but according to my Son-in-Law they might show up separately, so I’ll give it a week or so. My luck, someone snatched them. Coming through Puerto Rico, I’m amazed the vacuum made it. So we’ll see. If not, I’ll order what I want….. especially if it means I can go barefoot in the house~! I got my pictures edited just as my Bride pinged me and said she was headed home. There have been drinks, a movie (The Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones) and snacking on Smoked Gouda and Ritz……. a pretty fine afternoon. The movie wasn’t terrible….. maybe a little bit cheesy. I’d give it a 7….. but only because I like Tommy Lee Jones. That’s about it, other than trying for mowing again…. not sure what tomorrow is gonna bring.

(Side note: I decided instead of just Flamboyant trees…. I would create a file called Island Sites and try and capture pictures of sites typical here on our little rock)

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~!!!! ;-)
