Slow, slow, slow

Up a little earlier than I cared for this morning….. had to whizz and my back hurt. Pretty sure back pain is from our mattress as I haven’t moved any tanks in well over a week and haven’t done much else that would have strained my back- that and it didn’t hurt when I went to bed…. so…… Ironically, I was looking at mattresses the other day and as it turns out, there is a store here on the island that carries Tempur-Pedic mattresses. That is what we had back in the states and I loved that mattress. It was also a $2000+ mattress and yes, I know it’s worth it for the health of my back, it’s not very much worth it for the health of our checking account however. And I’m sure in the however many years it was since we bought that first one, that they have went up in price, then factor in island pricing…… One in the store that I looked at was $3800. Gulp…..! So, may have to look at other options. I think I do more damage to my back, flipping and rotating our current mattress than sleeping on it does. Besides, you shouldn’t have to flip and or rotate your friggin’ mattress every couple of months~! A pretty tame day as far as activities. A wonderfully cool breeze blowing all day from the North West, which is 180° from the direction it normally blows. Nice as it is, it is creating some massive swells all around the island. Massive enough, there is concern that the two cruise ships due in tomorrow may not be able to dock. Dammit Emmit~! Let me tell you– it takes some pretty serious wave action to stop those big dudes from dang near anything, so guess I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out if I’m diving or not. I’ll have my gear ready to go, just in case. Until then………..

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~!!!! ;-)
