Big Day

Slept in ever so slightly this morning….. following my bride after what I deemed an appropriate amount of time (I was wrong) thinking she was out of the bathroom. I opened up the bedroom and made the bed and came out and opened up the living room before I got my turn in our tiny little bathroom. The day officially underway…… we had our coffee, a nice breakfast. Not sure where the energy came from, but my Queen headed out to work in her ‘garden’. I hung out inside for a bit making sure I was done with my bathroom stuff. I had made myself a respectable little list of things I wanted to get done today and worked on one of the items on the computer while I ‘waited’. A guest had reached out to me late last night requesting to see his pictures from a couple of dives back in March. I told him I would work on it today, so that’s what I did until I was sure it was safe to venture out side and not have to make a mad dash back inside. I re-created two more galleries and got them up for the guest. He acknowledged the effort and loved his pictures. Apparently didn’t appreciate them enough to acknowledge my effort with any kind of tip though. Angie thinks I should start charging people to reload galleries when that happens. I’m struggling with that. I think it would hurt the [dive] shops reputation if I charge to do that, even though I am very clear in telling them the pictures only stay up on line for one month. What do you think ? Tell them yes, I can reload the gallery(s) for $XX. Or just continue to make it a freebie ?

Once I got outside, I started in in the task I dreaded most…… cleaning the gutters. Our gutters are in horrendous condition and the fact that we drink the water that comes out of them should bother me a lot more than it actually does. I have mentioned it to the landlord before, but she has no desire to spend any kind of money,  even though she did pay me to put new tile floor in our kitchen. The gutters are going to have to be hired out. I do not have the the tools, manpower or the inclination to do it myself. I do intend to bring it up again though when I go to pay the rent. They need replaced before any more of the facia board they are attached to rots any further as well, so maybe I can ‘sell’ it as a preventative kinda thing. I just don’t want to pi$$ her off and get booted out of our little abode. Dammit… running out of allotted words…. I also got the lawn mowed and weed eated. Didn’t get to the ATV yard because they were working….so I’ll run in town tomorrow and knock it out. So– most of the list completed~!! Hopefully a lot movie time tomorrow~!

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~!!!! ;-)
