New Road

The road that attaches to my street has been re-paves. It’s nice! I hope it lasts a long time The surface is a tar/oil mixture, where before it was asphalt. They don’t seem to be quiet done yet tho. Maybe this is an undercoat.

Yesterday after work I mowed the back yard. I am in control again! For now..

Have a great Wednesday!

Ash Wednesday Day Off

Today is a day off work. I’m probably going to the beach with my mother and sister. Maybe a cruise around the island too.

Yesterday, i couldn’t get on to post. The site came back up before I had a chance to look into it.

if I look out my front (east) window, it looks like it is going to be a cloudless, sunny day. If I look out my north facing window, it looks like it’s going to pour rain any minute.

I hope you have a great Wednesday!

Generator Running

During those storm my generator wouldn’t start. I found the air filter had turned into moosh and .the carburetor was very dirty (clogged). I rebuilt and cleaned the carb and replaced the filter and got it running. But it runs rough. The jets in the carb have two parts, I could only get one out. Maybe I can get it out today.

Also, more yard cleanup yesterday (and today). And yesterday I went out looking for a replacement closet door. Didn’t find one, but stopped by the nursery and beach for a minute.

Tomorrow it’s back to work, I’m looking forward to it, strangely enough.

Have a good Tuesday!


Happy Birthday to me! Double nickles old.

Room 106B, the best room. If you ever come here, ask for 106B. Note to self.

Lugubrious Thursday



You can see how this camera kills red in these two shots. The top one is the red red sunrise, but you  can’t tell. The second one, look in the reflection in the window, see the red? The top photo should show that red.

I seem to be having keyboard problems. On this keyboard, it’s the space bar. You really gotta hit it good to make it work. At work yesterday, I noticed I was having problems with the caps key. Couldn’t make a capital letter until about the 3rd or 4th try.

Below are some ship pictures from a couple days ago. The top one is a cargo carrier, the bottom one is a British warship that was/is visiting.



It’s looking  like a rainy windy cold day today.

Happy Thursday!

Found The Wreck

Camera 14MP-9PC Camera 14MP-9PC[jwplayer mediaid=”12585″]

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. 🙁

Back From The Brac

Got back from Cayman Brac yesterday evening. Had a really good time. Went to a Star Trek party in the Bat Cave, saw lots of friends, ate a lot, rested a lot and the time there was way too short. Below are pictures.

Monday Mayhem

Woke up this morning to two sick dogs. I thought there were two, now I’m thinking only one. Ditto has this medicine that the doctor said if he gets sick, stop giving it to him. Well, I’m stopping. This morning after our walk, bloody diarrhea all over the living room. And Ditto was so humiliated I couldn’t even be mad at him. One of my New Years Eve wishes was that Ditto would be healthy and happy for 2014, but I don’t know if he’s going to make it. I can tell he’s in pain.

It was a good weekend, went to the beach Saturday, and Sunday, went to a Guy Harvey Earth Day Mangrove cleanup. After the cleanup we had lunch at Morgans Harbor. Below are some videos and photos from both.

Happy Belated Anniversary!

I missed it, The Wife pointed it outSweet16-Black-pinkFebruary 4th was my 16th anniversary on the island! From now on I can say 16 instead of 15 when people ask how long I’ve been here. The Wife has been here 8!

I didn’t post yesterday, I was on Cayman Brac for work and I had to leave the house early.

Below is a video of our plane landing in Grand Cayman after a long day of hard work. The date stamp is off on the camera, the video was taken yesterday, the 6th. I have to adjust it on the camera.
