Trumpets please

It seems like it will finally come to pass.  I have booked a moving vehicle. The finishing touches are being put to the kitchen right now. The bathroom just needs cleaning. Lights have gone up. The electrician has checked everything. And the grill man is working right as I type.

Ladies and Gentlemen, on Saturday Kingston Girl will be moving to her new abode.

Her own apartment.

(Well, currently it’s a shares between her and the mortgage company, but that’s irrelevant at this point in time) 

And damn, I’m excited. And if you have been reading for a while, you’ll feel the excitement with me. The place has been transformed from a major dump not fit for human habitation into something very cute. Basically, it’s amazing.

And I think I’d better stop now as I am running out of  superlatives. But it’s very very cool!

PS To Leon and others on blogspot – I try and visit you, sometimes I even succeed on getting into your sites. However, commenting appears to be beyond the prowess of my computer. So you’ll just have to take my word for it – and i’ll just have to keep trying.

    Hey, Edna Manley graduating Art students will have their exhibitions today, if you have any funds remaining after fixing up your place, you might want to pop over their (in between moving) to see if you can get some nice pieces at reasonabe price.

    Nice read! I’m a 43 year old Jamaican and I’ve lived in the U.S. for 33 years. I guess by American standards I’ve “made it” here; I’m retired and have all the material crap Americans use to measure success; but I have this emptyness in my soul that I know is somehow related to growing up here and not really having a connection to my country, my home, my people, I have often wished my parents had stayed in Jamaica and let me grow up and experience life in my own culture. I’m sure they had the best of intentions when the immigrated here but I didn’t have a choice. I have been contemplating moving to Jamaica for the last two years and I get no support from my parents or anyone else in my family for that matter. They go on and on about the crime and how I’ll be kidnapped and murdered the second I step off the plane because “they” (?) will know I’m not from there (?) so it encourages me to read about someone going back to where they are from and experiencing what they missed growing up ah foreign. Maybe some day…
