Slow day – big accomplishment~!

Spent most of my day studying material to advance my skills and capabilities while SCUBA¬† diving. Last half of the day was class room training with hands on demonstrations of my new skill. That new skill is being able to dive now with Nitrox. Technical name is EANx or Enriched Air Nitrogen or Nitrox for short. It is a special blend of air and Nitrogen and can be blended to multiple different blends, depending on what kind of diving you are wanting to do. The benefits of diving with Nitrox [in a nutshell] is that it extends your time on the bottom and that you typically won’t feel as tired at the end of a day of multiple dives.

Didn’t do much of anything else (noteworthy) besides the class work – hope to make a couple of dives shortly to try¬† it out. So not pictures or anything today.

Thankx for checking in~~~

Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans.

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
