Just chuggin’ along

Up waaaaay past my bedtime last night watching a new series. The series is called Alone. I think it’s an older series. About 10 people taken out into the wilderness and dropped off to survive by themselves. Fairly hostile environment, getting worse as time wears on. Winner takes all of 1/2 million dollars. I would have loved to done that at a younger age. I think it would have been an easy half million dollars~! Fun part of it – this particular season has a guy from where other than…… St. Croix USVI. As it turns out, I know ‘of him’ and I have actually given his wife and Daughter a ride out to their compound here on the island. I have no idea how he did on the show….. I’m on episode # 5 and he is still there, but honestly don’t remember hearing how he did. From what I have seen so far, I don’t think he’s gonna make it.

We watched the third of a series of sappy Christmas movies and thankfully that is done now. I told my Bride I needed some non-sappy stuff for a little bit…. LOL. She made us some left over spaghetti and now trying to get you a couple of words up here. No boat again tomorrow…… dammit Emmit~! Guess I better brace for more sappy romance movies. Starting to get things lined up for our trip back. Being a bit more rigid on the fact we’re not going to do as much running as we have been doing. 500+ miles of driving every time we come back is just no longer going to be acceptable, so folks who want to visit can come to us this round……. with one or two notable exceptions…… We do have our set of folks we ‘have‘ to see when we come back…… regardless whether we have to drive or not  😉  So — a couple three more days and we’ll be back in PoCo. Hopefully I get to see some of you while we’re there.

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~!!!! ;-)
