    "I have a heck of a time" here means "I have a really fun time". Annette Funicello? That is 50 years old!

    In other sentences the same phrase can mean "I had difficulty". Usually that use is followed by a verb:

    I had a heck of a time fixing the car engine.
    I had a heck of a time hiding that hole.
