Old Haunt

We decided last night, we would do breakfast/brunch at Blues this morning. I held off saying something last night, because those kind of plans tend to fall apart pretty easy. I thought having to get up and get ‘at it’ fairly early would be one of the reasons those plans would fall apart, but I managed to get my stuff together fairly early and headed out the door to the ATV yard to get it trimmed up. I pulled in and had most of the yard done when the ‘kids‘ pulled. We chatted a little bit before they went about what they were doing and I finished up the yard. It was still fairly early and reasonably cool, but Lord have mercy was it sticky. Was it sticky you asked ?? Yes, it was sticky, those kind of mornings where you don’t have to do anything to have your shirt soaked through and through. I finished up and head back out to the house. I got the gear all cleaned up and put away, took a bit of a ‘bird bath’ and was ready to go eat….. I was hongry~!! A [lengthy] telephone call delayed our exit and I was just about to nuke up a burger when the call ended and we got to take off. I was anxious to get an icy cold beer, something to eat and be able to chat with Jim a little bit. I don’t spend near as much time with him as I would like, and I was looking forward to our visit. We got there and got the warm welcome we always get, whether we were there the day before or if it’s been a couple of months. Instead of my usual biscuits and gravy – I opted to try a Blues Breakfast sammich that I have been eye balling. Excellent, excellent decision. This is a couple of pieces of sausage, with a couple of eggs, a couple big ole slabs of cheese, a smattering of mayo and probably something else, all set on one of Deb’s big ole home made biscuits plus a handful of fruit on the side (ya gotta make it a little healthy) 😉   OOH-Rah…… excellent decision~!! Probably one of the best sammiches I have had in a while. Me starving may have added a  little bit to the equation, but none-the-less, still a damn fine sammich~! I may even make it my choice again on our next visit, as I think I liked it even better than the biscuits and gravy…..(did I just say that out loud??)…. plus there was an icy cold Budweiser [or two] to help wash it down. MmMmM good~!! We finished our meal and wound up staying for another drink [or two] and eventually wound up shutting them down. I miss that, although our health and our wallet both agree it’s probably a good thing we live out West and can’t do that very often. Safely back here chatting with you all now. I am doing a full blown swap of all my batteries and camera’s, giving the other set a ‘rest’ for a month. Looks like I have a full week ahead of me coming up, starting tomorrow out as Dive Master and maybe taking some pictures. We’ll see.

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~!!!! ;-)
