A new week…….

Started the new week out this morning with no new turtle diggings nor babies last night – but we aren’t “expecting” any babies until tomorrow night or Wednesday. Had another beautiful sunrise and ironically enough, got the best picture of it by shooting to the West. Just took the one picture, but you’ll see what I mean.

The Sargassum seaweed continues to pile in and you can see it stretched all over the place out on the open water….. sure hope that stops soon because I’m not sure turtle babies can navigate that mess we have out there now….. and it is entirely too much for this old fat boy to try and keep raked up at this point~! What I can do if I get lucky enough to see them, is gather them up in my shirt and wade my big ole a$$ out into clear water and let them loose~! I’ll dang sure do it if I need to- you can take that to the bank~!

We must have some weather or something building out there as the waves are increasing in size and intensity…. You get 4 or 5 lines of those breaking at once and it almost sounds like thunder….. nice, very, very nice. Got a little bit of video of it for you, but not sure I can get the big video loaded on here – if not….FB  🙁

Ran up tot the local garage today to make an appointment for the truck. I either have a brake shoe that has slipped out of position or a rotor that has warped that I need to get fixed fairly soon….. this island is not a place where a brake failure would be a good thing….. Sure hope it ain’t a warped rotor. $$$$$$$$$$

Rest of the day was NYPD Blues and watching those big a$$ pelicans soaring over head. Had 7 of them out there this morning dive bombing. Every time I bring my camera out to try and catch some of their formation flying, they disappear. I don’t know if they think I have a gun or what….. but I’ll keep trying. Just started season # 3 of NYPD Blues…. I sure don’t remember it being that ‘racy’. Some of those scenes are almost soft porn……. and that was 1994 (the year their in now on the show).

That’s about it. We have another meeting with the Fish with a Vet group tomorrow to discuss final preparations for the big tournament coming up and Veterans Day activities, so that’ll get us out and an opportunity for some new pictures~!

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~!!!! ;-)
