I had an interesting weekend, I took the day off Friday and went snorkeling with some friends. Saturday a quarantiner dude came buy to pay for quarantine after his flight. He liked the place, paid, and left for the airport. 10 minutes later he calls and asks if he can leave his car at the house. I said OK and that I would even give him a ride to the airport. (I’m so nice!) I took him to the airport and dropped him off. 10 minutes later he calls and he left some travel documents in his car could I go get them. Perturbed now, I came back home, dug through his car to find his documents and took them to him at the airport. The guy seemed shady, nothing he said was specific, I had a weird feeling, but ignored it, maybe he was just a weird kid. After I dropped off his documents, I went scuba diving. As soon as I was done diving and got back in the car he called again. Customs found $24000 in the dollars and cash in his luggage undeclared. They took the money and wouldn’t let him fly. I picked him up and took him back to his car, at my house. He told a story about being a real estate investor and they wouldn’t take credit cards or checks it was only cash. I gave him his money back told him I thought he was a crook and that’s the end of the story. It really killed my Saturday, I missed my 8 o’clock appointment because he was late coming to see the apartment and pay, I missed my 10:30 appointment because I went to go get his travel documents. I missed my planned grocery shopping excursion because I took him to his car and get rid of him.
Saturday and Sunday I went diving and took the dogs to the beach Sunday. Pictures below
I have a happy Monday, trust your instincts, and have a good week!
Twas a good weekend, productive and fun. Friday I got off work early, went to the beach then went home and I mowed the yard, I only got the front done because the grass was so deep and wet. (When I say grass I really mean weeds!) Then our dinner club went out to dinner Friday night and it was quite nice. Saturday I went diving and then had coffee with friends at Waffle Monkey. Good coffee! Then I came home and mowed the backyard, it was much easier and drier. Saturday afternoon my quarantiner moved out, free of covid. I have somebody else possibly going into quarantine here on the 13th of this month, which will be nice.
Sunday was another diving day, followed by a washing two dogs who needed it bad and seem to feel much better
And now it’s a back to work Monday and I actually don’t feel so bad about it.
Several weeks ago, I put an event on my calendar, “Music at the Library” part of the Cayman Arts Festival. I stopped by on my way to movie night last night. It was very nice I was quite surprised at the young man’s skill.
The Program below.
And below is a video I took last night. Quite nice. Under 3 minutes long.
I’m glad I went, I don’t know what made me put it on my calendar when I heard about it, but I’m glad I did, I would have forgotten about it if I didn’t.
Then I went and saw some friends in Bodden Town and had overall a very nice evening..
Then I slept good, and feel good so far this Friday The 13th morning. And my class that I was so worried about yesterday wasn’t as bad as I thought. All’s well that ends well. Plus, yesterday at lunchtime I met a couple of really nice Rottweiler puppies.
I spent most of Saturday and some of Sunday trimming trees in the backyard. See pic above. I wish I had taken a before shor, you could touch the tree branches from the porch. Ran into chainsaw trouble Sunday, I’m still not done. I rekkon I’m done enough.
I missed a big street parade Carnival Saturday too. I really wanted to go, but, you know, chainsawing.
Weather coming, looks like. We need some rain.
Today, both dogs are going to the vet to get shots and checkups.
Last week, I think it was Wednesday, someone creased my car in the parking lot of the grocery store. I think I noticed it immediately after it happened. It is upsetting, to say the least. I’m not going to do anything about it though. My first damage to my new baby van.
The other day I saw this crab climbing the wall. I went to take a picture and then noticed the eggs underneath. I wonder what she’s going to do with those eggs, and if I’m going to have a trillion baby crabs around here in a little while. She was gone that afternoon when I got home from work, without a trace.
Tonight is movie night at the Weston. I have a date with the wife. I am picking her up at her apartment.
Today I’m glad to just be sitting here with a cup of coffee. I woke up before the alarm, about an hour before, and couldn’t get back to sleep. Right now I’m tired but I feel very calm.
My electric bill this month was $324. That’s almost double what it was for June last year. I think the reason is 2 air conditioners running instead of just one. Is the apartment in the house. We haven’t even hit the hot months yet.
Elsa continues to move north. Looks like my old homestead, Chesapeake Virginia, is going to get some rain.
Tonight is movie night at the Weston, I think we have a good movie and good weather so it’ll probably happen. I’m going to get there pizza probably, Their jerk chicken was good. , someone gave me a slice a couple weeks ago. Jerk chicken pizza! Yeah baby!
Today is the Queen’s birthday holiday. Her 1st birthday without her husband.
It’s always nice to have a long weekend.
It’s been another good, productive, weekend. Saturday I trimmed the bushes and mowed the yard. It came out well. The yard and bushes look good. Yesterday I started repainting the roof. I got this rubberized roof paint that seems pretty good . I will finish that job today I sure hope, unless I run out of paint.
The weather here has been weird this weekend. Weather report says overcast, but while it’s not really cloudy, (you can see the sun and airplanes and stuff) the sky is white and not blue.
And now for a couple of amusing pictures from yesterday:
