No News Is Good News

Quiet, uneventful weekend. Saturday, the wife had to work, and I went shopping for a new clothes dryer. (Ours died)
Then I went to the beach.

Sunday, was a hang at home day. Did nothin.

One of the few times I’m glad to have nothing to post about.

Have a good week!

Happy Summer!

Happy first day of summer! The longest day in the north, Shortest day in the south. First day of winter in tge southern hemisphere.
It starts at 5:34 Cayman time today

I like it better the two days the sun passes directly overhead in Cayman. It only happens in the tropics.

I got up this morning, walked to the sea and swam a little, walked home and showered, dressed, etc etc etc. Now I’m ready to go to work. Well, not ready, but I’m still going. My back still hurts when I bend over. Fon’t know what’s up, never hurt for this long before.

Well, have a good day, a good week and a good SUMMER!

Queens Birthday/Bruce Day

Yesterday was the  holiday for the Queens Birthday. Happy Birthday Your Majesty! (She reads this blog every day)

Yesterday was also Bruce Day. Jun 13. You can look that up elsewhere in his blog.

My back’s been hurting. Lower back, like the arch in my back goes away. This time it’s lasted longer than usual.

Also, in the really big news category, Little One the cat came back after 9 days missing. The Wife saw her get attacked by dogs. Really really glad she’s back.

Got my scooter back Saturday morning. Almost a month in the shop. Seems fine though.

And that’s your Monday Tuesday weekend report!

Have a good week!

Monday After A Quiet Weekend.

It’s Monday. It is clear and cool after an afternoon and evening of rain.

We needed the rain. It was the first real rain in a very long time. We have watched it rain in town many times without getting a drop.

Above is a panorama my wife took yesterday. Typical example of rain in town and none in West Bay.

I think it will be sunny again now.

Have a good week!

Italy Bound!

I a very few minutes we leave for the airport. To Italy.

I hate leaving Cayman, although I look forward to Italy.

I feel like there is no better place on earth than right here right now. But going to Italy is better than having to go to work!!

I’m ready to go!

M M M Monday

It was a good weekend. Uneventful, slow and seemed long.

Got up and ran the circuit this morning. My knees are creaky when I run.. I remember cross country in high school, how I used to glide when I ran. Now running is like going down stairs on a tricycle..

Two weeks from today we go to Italy. Can’t wait. Pretty soon the Wife’ll get out the suitcase and declare that it’s time to start packing.

Have you all a wonderful week! Good morning Yellowdog Granny!

Banana Harvest 2

image

Yesterday we harvested banana batch #2. Our first batch was very good. We had another batch start, but the bananaweight broke the stalk, and, well, this could have been batch number three.

It was a good weekend, seems long, which is good. Good weather lately. I’m  not really ready for the workweek though.

I also hung up a shelf that holds pots and pans for the wife this weekend. She likes it, and that makes me happy. The Wife was all busy this weekend, cooking and cleaning and buzzing around while I just kind of lazed around and took naps.

Have a GREAT week!

14 March 1985

31 years ago today, I got out of the Navy after six years active duty and six months inactive. I joined on the Delayed Entry Program 15 Sep 1978 and went to boot camp 15 March 1979. They send you home the day before, ’cause I guess technically you’re still in while you travel.

I went at NTC Great Lakes,  for almost two years, for boot camp and Electronics Technician School, then I got stationed in Pearl Harbor on board the USS Somers DDG 34. I also went to some schools at Mare Island, north of San Fransisco.

And that’s my post for today!
