(American) Football Again

Last night I watched my Redskins barely beat the Cleveland Browns. Cleveland could have tied it, and gone into overtime, or won it, they went for the win and didn’t make it, so they lost.

Kirk Cousins (backup quarterback) always plays better than Robert Griffin III, (starting quarterback)

This morning I was sitting in the woods and Miss Hawaii came walking by, wearing short short shorts. I told her I used to live in Hawaii. She was fascinated, and was sitting down to talk to me. Then the alarm went off.

Aloha!

What was I thinking?

I calculated that I needed 6 bags of dirt. (potting soil), three for these two  giant pots, and one for something and one for something and another for something else.
I filled the two giant pots and now have three bags of dirt I can’t remember what for.

When I went to the store and asked for six bags or dirt, I got a blank stare. It was funny. Then I said “potting soil” and the lady said “Ohhhhh” and we both started laughing.

Oh Monday, go easy on me this week! Have a good week!

OMG! Such a long, Brutal Week!

I’m glad it’s Friday, it’s been a long, hard week.
I developed a bad habit on vacation. My alarm clock is programmed on my phone, Monday through Friday. When it went off while I was on vacation, I’d just turn it off and go back to sleep. This morning I just turned it off and went back to sleep. Thanks to my dawg Ditto for waking me up.

Disaster averted.

Friday. Thank God. Have a good weekend!

 

Monday-ish Thursday

Today it’s back to work for me. Feels like Monday.

I guess it was an OK vacation. The weather was crappy half the time. I didn’t waste too much time  when it was nice out.

Last night we went and saw Costa Rica girls football. They got hammered by Canada. It was devastating. Canada scored first, Costa Rica answered by scoring immediately, but then it was all over.

Yesterday I took “Da Bus” into town to help the Wife  pick up her car that was in the shop. Here’s a pic of me on “Da Bus”.

You can tell I’m thrilled. Just like I’m thrilled to be going back to work today.

Have a good last two days of the week!

Found The Wreck

Yesterday I loaded up the kayak and went looking for the wreck I saw from the air. At first I didn’t think I’d find it, but after I got out to the wrong buoys, I saw the right one. It was a big wrecked sailboat.

After that I paddled out to the inside of the reef, very close to the wrecks at Wreck of The Ten Sail, the site where a sailing fleet wrecked a couple hundred years ago. The wreck you see here is NOT from those sailing ships.

Today is the last day of my vacation, tomorrow it’s back to work. :-(

Girls Under 15 Football

Last night The Wife and I and a lot of the islands Costa Ricans went to watch Costa Rica play football against Jamaica.
It was lots of fun.

The Jamaican girls seemed a lot bigger than the Costa Ricans, but both teams played well,  to a draw.

Costa Rica plays Canada (?) on Wednesday and I plan on going!

Monday Woes

Well, here we are on a Monday. After months of drought, the forces that be chose  my vacation to make it rain.

I read  some books, Orange Is The New Black, (not like the tv series). I read the Divergent trilogy/ the first two books were good, the third, had to put it  down.

It’s cloudy and thundery right now. It’ll get sunny again when I go back to work.

Rainy Winter Friday

Oh what a difference a day makes!

Yesterday was sunny and hot, today is cloudy  and cold.. It rained hard yesterday afternoon and last night, today, promises more of the same.

Today I was going to load up the kayak and head for East End to try and find the wreck I saw from the air. However the weather isn’t good for such ventures. So, at the moment, I don’t know what I’ll do today.

I’ll just have another cuppa coffee,and give it a think!

Happy FRIDAY!!!

Vacation Day Two

Went to the beach yesterday, it was great. Supposed to get cloudier later today. The wife is taking her old car to get the convertible top changed, then she’s going to sell it. I’m driving her new car with my bicycle in the back, she’ll take the new car, and I’ll ride home on the bike.
That’s the plan.
