Enjoyed Watching Chargers Win!

Last night I enjoyed watching the Denver Broncos get beat by the San Diego Chargers. Denver was favored and I thought they’d win. 

What kind of uniforms were they wearing? SD was wearing their high school uniforms and Denver was wearing prison jumpsuits. Both teams looked steeeee-upid.


Finally Friday, in 10 hours, I hope I’m sitting right here, smoking a cigar.Have a good weekend! 

Good Luck Bermuda

Hurricane Nicole is practically on top of them, right now, this minute. We have friends there. Hurricane season is over in two weeks, two days. Hopefully.

Suddenly, it’s Thursday. The weekend approaches!

Have a good day

Wife Back Today

The wife gets back today. Thank God.

Today is cloudy, cool and windy.

Woke up at 2:45 again this morning, but it doesn’t count. I smelled raain and got up and closed the windows. Then I went instantly back to sleep. I was still sleeping good when the alarm went off.

I am tired and need more coffee. This is my post for today.

Hava goodun!

A Mite Chilly

It was a mite chilly last night. I turned off the AC and opened the door, then there was a howling breeze coming through which was a mite chilly, so I got up and closed the door, because I was a mite chilly. The wind is from the north and when I went for my walk/swim this morning, it was a mite chilly. The sea was quite rough, from the north breeze, so I swam in the pool, which was also a mite chilly. Then it was durn freezing walking home all wet.

Seems like every morning lately I wake up at 3. Don’t know why, is there a noise every morning at three? Does the cat mess with me at 3? I don’t think so, but I don’t know. Last night I stayed up till almost 11, so it’s not me going to bed too early. Maybe I need to take an extra melatonin before bed….
Have a good day!

When I Grow Up

A friend told me he had a job where every morning, he’d wake up and couldn’t wait to go to work. He enjoyed it. To me that sounds like the best thing in the world.

I’ve had jobs I didn’t hate. Like when i was a lifeguard as a kid. I didn’t hate delivering newspapers. I have fond memories of the Navy, but remember being dissatisfied by illogic and bad management.

I don’t like my job. My job is beating my head against the wall. Maybe that can change. I was really busy Friday, and enjoyed it.

I never figured out what I want to be when I grow up, and I still have no clue how to find out.

Monday Blues.

Weird Hurricane Matthew 

I drove the car yesterday and it didn’t rain a drop.

Glad it’s Friday!!!

Matthew is a weird hurricane. It’s gonna loop around and go back to Florida?!?

Wife is going to Florida tomorrow morning and mixing business with pleasure.  She’s spending the weekend with friends and work next week. 

I’ll be home alone…..

Car Day, For Sure!

This morning when I got up I could hear the sea. I knew there’d be no swimming this morning. I walked to the dock and sure enough, big waves, no ladder. Also thunder and lightning on the horizon. Now, showered and ready for work, it’s totally cloudy.

Ya know, I was thinking, the picture above really does look like an accurate weather map. Hurricane bearing down on Miami. Our friends there are evacuating. My wife is supposed to go to Miami for work and is going to visit them. Wee shall seee.

Have a Happy Thursday!

Matthew Passed Us

I feel sorry for the people of Haiti and Bahamas, but I’m glad Cayman dodged that bullet.

I was waiting for Matthew to get north of Cuba before I said “whew!”.

We might get some rain today, but just a little and not hurricane related. 

I feel tired this morning. The wife has a hip that has been hurting for quite awhile now. I woke up and she was awake and I could tell she was in pain. She’s been to the doctor and it all looked ok, but something is wrong. I’m telling her to go back to the doctor. 

Hump day. Yeay. Have a good day!

Bye Bye Smiths Cove

The forces that be are going to build condos at Smith Cove. Found out yesterday. Read it here

Of course I’m against it, but if it’s private land and the owner wants to build on it, what can be said? I’m very surprised to learn that it was private land. The wife says it’s the lot next to Smith Cove, and not Smith Cove itself. We’ll see.

I remember the old Seaview Hotel. Fantastic island hotel and dive spot. Got wrecked in hurricane Ivan, and rebuilt as private condos. No more access.

When I moved here, probably half of Seven Mile Beach was undeveloped. Sea grape trees and casurina pines and the best beach in the world. Now you can hardly get on Seven Mile Beach. Condos and hotels with security guards. The beach is public, by law, but you can’t get access through the condos/hotels.

When I moved here, there was a law prohibiting building more than three stories tall. That was a good law. No matter what, the buildinds never cleared the treeline, and you never lost the Caribbean Island look. Now skyscrapers are going up everywhere. Ugly skyscrapers. To me, from the street, the Ritz looks like a prison.

When you get old like me, I guess all change is bad.
