And so it goes…….

No boat this morning so I got to sleep in a little bit and actually did. Of course, some of that in part was listening to the raging party going on downtown until the very wee hours of the night and then a monsoon type of rain that lasted about 20 minutes. I actually had to get up for that and close the shutters as rain was coming through the screens. I went ahead and went whizz while I was up, popped some Ibuprofen and crawled back into bed. Thankfully it didn’t take me long to fade back out and I managed to sleep until about 06:45, which for me is really good. With not a lot planned for  today, I took it easy and got caught up on online stuff before making me a righteous breakfast. Couple of eggs, some Lil Smokie sausages and some hashbrowns. I rarely ever make hashbrowns, but I picked up a bag of the kind I like my last trip to the store and this morning seemed like the time to make some. Delicious~! I had to make a dump run and then I stopped and filled the truck up. From there to the Post Office……. jeeez that was a mistake. I managed to almost wind up in the middle of one of the many parades going on. After a 2 mile detour and a 2 block hike, I finally made it into the Post Office. Picked up my mail and [sadly] had to go to the front desk to mail a package….. holy moly…… these people are almost as bad as the McDonalds here on the island. I “only” had two people in front of me (actually one but one really old dude cut the ever growing line behind me to get in front of me and I felt sorry for the old timer and did not say anything) The two people in front of me wound up taking almost 25 minutes between them before it was finally my turn. A [what should have been] two minute transaction took almost 15 minutes. Good Lord….. my patience had run completely out by the time I finally got out of there. I hiked back to the truck just to find out that most of the streets in town were blocked off (for parade routes) and what should have been a 6 minute drive to the house, took almost 15 minutes. Island time on a whole other level…… Wow~

Back at the house, I finally convinced myself to get up and mow the lawn. Dodging small rain showers I got the mowing and weed eating done, so hopefully good there for another week or so. Been going through old bank and credit card statements trying to find a payment to a medical place here. I got a call a couple of days ago from a clinic saying I owe them almost $2000~!! from two years ago~!! Lord gimme strength. 2 years….. no bill from them or anything and now they want it paid asap~! I told them you waited 2 years to bring this up – I’m gonna take my sweet a$$ time to look for proof to refute it. How can they do that ??? Is that even legal after two years ?? Jeeez~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
