Actually slept in a teeny tiny bit this morning. I still find it odd at the ripe old age of 65 that I still feel small pangs of embarrassment when I ‘sleep in’. It’s gotta make you wonder just a tad, what happened in your life, that at that ripe old age, you still feel ‘bad’ about sleeping in. I’m not talking about moping around and down in the dumps, but just that little rush of ‘guilt’ when you realize you should have been up an hour ago. I slept until almost 07:00. I woke briefly around 05:30 when I normally get up and knowing that there was nothing important to get up for, I managed to get comfy enough to score that extra 1½ half hour of sleep. Yay me~! As I stretched and fidgeted, preparing to roll out, I could hear/feel my bride scramble to get out of the bed. I presumed she needed to potty much worse than me (I got up around 04:00 and resolved that issue)– so I let her go and I opened up the bedroom and made the bed while she did her bathroom stuff.

We had a nice slow casual start to the day. Angie made us a wonderfully tasty breakfast, fielded a couple of phone calls and still managed to stay mostly seated at the table with me. After dishes were done…… I wandered into the second bedroom [more commonly known as the junk/storage room] and working on a ‘suggestion‘ from my bride, I spent the next couple of hours, rearranging, reorganizing and straightening up the room. I also spent another hour or so, sorting through a stack of paperwork, of which most was tossed. At the end of it….. I hauled out a massive bag of trash, several bottles of expired cooking oil, a small load of empty boxes and other random crap to the truck and made a quick run to the dump. On my return, Angie ran into town for a a handful of odds and ends before settling back down at the table. She informed she ran into a friend and he said he may stop out for a drink, which he did. We sat and swilled beer for a couple of hours and just kind of caught up. He is now on his way as I sit and extol the days events to you. Didn’t get the lawn mowed due to intermittent rain showers all day, so maybe tomorrow.  Not pretty, glamourous or exciting, just a calm slow day in our little piece of paradise. Going to try and find some pictures you haven’t seen yet for you……..

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~!!!! ;-)
