No News Is Good News

It was a great weekend! Friday I stayed home while the Wife went out to Oktoberfest. Not my cuppa tea)

Saturday I went to the beach, wife had to work (only for two hours). The beach is full of seaweed, and I had the whole 7 Mile Beach to myself! Didn’t see another soul. The sea’s been pretty  rough, with the wind coming opposite the normal direction. Good sand n sun tho, it was great!

Sunday, we took Sheba to the beach at Barkers, not much seaweed there, came back, gave Sheba a bath. Then I trimmed the tree in the back yard. It had branches hanging down almost to the ground. After that we went to a friends house and hung out by the pool.

And I watched Football, Redskins won,  Dallas lost.

It was a good weekend.

Super weird dreams last night though. I had a brain twister about the anomalies of the number 96. And a different dream that someone was building real structures of optical illusions. There was a corner of a building, a house really, that was up on a pole. It had a still-alive woman from olden days, still young and not affected by time. And more illusions. Too weird to retain in the brain. Waker-uppers. I got up and laid on the back porch for a pretty long time, since
sleeping wasn’t comfortable. 

But it was a good weekend! I feel pretty good this morning, despite lack of sleep. We’ll see now the day goes.

Have a good week!

New Cat Friday

This week was NOT fast like the previous two. I’ll be glad to get home tonight after work.

We’re getting a new cat tonight, an indoor cat. The lady is bringing her over tonight and we’ll see how she (the cat) gets on with the dogs. We’ve set up a kennel for the cat to spend her days in, and hopefully she won’t jump off the balcony.


The Wife has already named the cat Ashley. She’s been looking for a grey cat for along, coming to the conclusion that there were none on the island, when Ashley shows up at the Ritz.

So we’ll see how it goes.

Have a good weekend!

Friday Finally Fantastic

It’s Friday. I feel very relaxed and calm. Not much to say today. All good.

Supposed to rain today, according to my weather apps. It has rained every day this week, but my weather apps have said all clear, so I rode the scooter. I got rained on once. Today, I’ll take the car, (on the weather app’s advice), so it’ll probably be clear. Not complaining.

Supposed to rain tomorrow. I’m supposed to go diving and look for an airplane that crashed long ago. Last night, I dreamed I went diving. I just remembered.

Have a great weekend!

Weekly Weekend Report

It was an  all right weekend.
Friday, quiet evening at home. Saturday, The Wife had a Girls brunch, I went to the beach. In the evening we went to some friends house and hung out. Sunday,  mowed the front yard only. And didn’t do much else. It was a high cloud day yesterday, plenty of heat, but not much sun, for a while, then there were intermittent high clouds and low clouds all day. It’s that time of year, rain almost every day, hurricanes and storms lined up in the Atlantic.

I need to start taking more pictures. I don’t take them so I don’t have them to post.

Now it’s back to work, the past two weeks have been fast and I hope this week is too.

And that’s about all for my weekly weekend report!

Have a great week!

Another Monday non post

Another brain damaged, under-coffeed, no-topic Monday.
I shan’t bore you trying to make nothingness more interesting, I barely left the house all weekend. Wife went out with girlfriends Friday, I stayed home. Saturday I mowed the yard. I did go to the grocery store also Saturday

Sunday I lazed around while the wife crocheted.

And that’s it. I just want more coffee. And to stay home from work.

Monday Morning Blues After A Fantastic Weekend

Here we are, Monday morning. Again. I got the Monday Morning Blues.

Friday we went to Royal Palms beach bar. The wife wanted to dance. There’s a link to Royal Palms in my menu bar

Saturday we went shopping and got new suitcases for our Canada trip in less than three weeks. Then we had lunch at a place called Icoa. I had a Maine Lobster sandwich that was very good, and the staff was super nice. Then we went to a pool party and had a beef curry dinner at a friends house.

Sunday I mowed the yard, and my lawnmower ran good for a while, then quit. I just had it fixed. I was able to get it running by putting some duct tape on the throttle. It’s going back to the shop today. After I mowed the yard, I took sun on the  porch while the Wife went on a catamaran cruise. She didn’t get home till late and was mad because the staff made the people leave their shoes on the dock, and when they got back, one of her flip flops was missing.

This morning I was doing my exercises and we had a sudden, heavy downpour. I got soaked getting the stuff inside and closing the doors and windows. Now I’m drinking coffee and getting ready to go back to work.

All I gotta focus on is making it to the beach for lunch.

Have a good week!

My BDay Gift To Myself

For my birthday last week, I bought myself a fountain pen. I think they’re cool and increasingly uncommon.

It sucks, my writing looks terrible using this pen.

I think I’ll give it to my wife….


I wasn’t ready for this week, after my vacation weekend. Yesterday was tough, today I don’t wanna go to work. Waaa Waaaa.


Personal New Year

Tomorrow is my birthday, 7-11.


I’ll be 55.

When I turned 40, seems like about 5 minutes ago, I thought, “My life  is approximately half over  (If I don’t screw up and get m’self kilt)”. This second half seems  to be moving a lot faster than the first.

I think that birthdays are good times to make new years resolutions, after all, it is the start of a personal new year, isn’t it?
My resolution is “no TV when the sun is above the horizon”. I gave up television totally before I got married, now, the Wife likes it, so I end up watching too, and getting addicted. I like Modern Family.


This weekend, we’re going to East End for a mini stay-cation. It’s gonna be GREAT!
We have a young woman staying over to take care of the dawgs.

You know you’re getting old when you call a pretty girl a “young woman”!

Have a good weekend!
