Blues and Mowin’

Quiet start to the day. Up and enjoying a quiet cool morning and just about to have some breakfast when the power went out. Dammit Emmit. Options were to: starve, order out from Polly’s or go out to Blues. My Bride wanted to go to Blues, so away we went. I got me an icy cold Budweiser and ordered Biscuits and Gravy, 2 eggs and a couple of pieces of sausage.  Angie got a basic breakfast with a Mimosa. Got our breakfast. Angie said hers was okay….. mine was unremarkable. It wasn’t bad, but not good. We sat and had another drink and caught up with some of the old gang before finally loading up and heading back out West.  By the time we got back, my belly was gurgling and flopping…… not good. I can’t say it was breakfast, but I can’t say it wasn’t. I had grass to mow, so I drank some water and headed out. Thankfully the weather wasn’t screaming hot and the grass wasn’t overly tall or thick. For a couple of days there I thought I was going to get away with out mowing this weekend, but the last couple days you could almost stand and watch it grow. Dammit Emmit~! Got our yard done fairly quick, came in and got a bottle of water, cooled off a skosh and then loaded the truck up and  headed in town. I got the ATV yard knocked easily and quickly and did a little weed eating (had to get the places I didn’t get last time) and then back out to the house. I didn’t need to do any weed eating at the house so I got everything done fairly quickly. I have finally cooled off, got some more Christmas presents ordered and now am ready for a shower as soon as I finish this. Don’t have a whole lot of diving next week either…… dammit Emmit~! I think I have one or two Cruise Ship days, so that’ll be a couple of dives… the rest of the week still looks pretty skinny~~

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~!!!! ;-)
