Out on the veranda this morning at around 05.40 hours ((obviously I had my mug of black coffee (sugar-free) and iPad (Air if you must know) with me)) the sky suddenly started to turn red. This as the darkness started to disappear as the sun came up.
But this morning it just felt different. I don’t know if it was because it had been raining heavily. I doubt it because it’s rained before just as the sun was rising. Whatever caused it though created a sky with a rich red hue. I should have stirred myself (not the coffee obviously – no milk, no sugar!), got up and grabbed the camera. I didn’t though – I was enjoying it too much. You’ll just have to believe me (or not if that is your inclination) that it was a sight to behold. If it happens again though I will take a shot – I’m now going to take the camera out on to the veranda first thing in the morning!
Anyway enough of today for the moment, I want to take you back in time. To yesterday!
After spending my ‘me time’ on the veranda I showered, shaved, dressed and headed off to take the golf cart to Giovanni’s (its in Sea Grape Drive if you’re interested) for a service and oil bath. I also wanted him to take a look (stupid thing to say actually) at a squeak that’s been coming from the rear off-side wheel.
I dropped the ‘cart off shortly after he opened at 08.00 hours and then took a leisurely stroll along the beach.
Diamante Beachfront Suites coming along nicely.
On her way to setting up the stand for the day.
“Service, I demand service”.
And then I reached my target
“Aw c’mon, I had a couple of hours to kill!”
I’d just finished eating
when the ‘phone rang. It was Giovanni, the wheel bearing needed replacing. That north road!
When I got to Giovanni’s I could see my cart up on the ‘ramp’ (I use this description very loosely of course)
so I sat in the Reception area
Just like the Volvo servicing agent I used to use in the UK. Not!
and watched him finish off cleaning the cart.
Now back to today (I feel a bit like Marty McFly!).
Work on paving the road north of the bridge continues as the road building team tackle the stretch between Solitude and Bermuda Landing
It’s slow going but every day I see the road move closer to my home. Are you reading this wheel bearings!
I can’t end this edition without letting you know that it’s happened eventually.
Yes, the water tank is full. Get in there! Oh, it is.
The headline for today’s edition is based on the single released by Phyllis Nelson in 1985 which reached number one in the UK Singles Chart.
