Bottle flue and Corndogs~~

Tsk, Tsk, Tsk <shaking my head> Apologies on last night’s post….. when I say things got out of control….. that was the understatement of the day. Not sure but think maybe someone slipped me a rufie (sp?) and not in a fun way. We went to a meeting of a local dive club that I joined and it was held above a local bar.  (Pretty hard to go anywhere or attend any event on this island that alcohol is not available) We got there shortly before the meeting started and got us a drink and was just chatting with folks. I guess it didn’t help we went to Blues for an hour or so before we went to the meeting – but it was to get something to eat as well, so we wouldn’t get too messed up drinking…… yeah – that worked out well.  The meeting wore on and we kept ordering drinks. After the meeting was over, I met a guy about my age, retired Air Force with just about the same number of dives as I’ve got and I think he is interested in becoming my dive buddy. That would be great~! That way I can start making a dives for $6.00 a piece instead of the $60 – $90 a piece I’m making them for now and can start making a crap load more of them~!!! But anyway — life goes on.

My Queen and I both slept in a little bit and got up with a bad case of the bottle flu. I was supposed to go up to Blues this morning for some touch up work on my last two projects – but I could not manage to get away from the bathroom long enough to get anything more than smoking a cigarette done. So we sat and recovered all day. One of the things we do while we’re smoking, is to watch the ‘wildlife’ right there on the edge of our patio. I find it fascinating to watch the Blue back crabs digging their holes. They actually will pull up “armloads” of sand to the edge of the hole, then ‘throw’ it out of the way. I was never sure how I could explain it to you – but I managed to get some video of it. Just hope I can get them to load here — if not, you’ll have to go to FB to see them. Very, very cool. Yesterday, as it happened, turned out to be kind of a ‘critter’ day – as all the pic’s and videos are from yesterday.

After recuperating most of the day today – I wanted to try out a recipe I saw for making corn dogs. I love corndogs and could eat them everyday. Sadly, Nobody makes them here on the island – so I made my own. Not bad for a first attempt – even if I say so my damn self~! Now that I have that first batch under my belt, (BAA-HAaa… under my belt)  🙂  I’m looking forward to tweaking current recipe to make the next batch even better. I’ll just be sure to be careful about how many beers I have with them~!  😉

Good night Ya’ll — Thankx for stopping in~!

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~!!!! ;-)
