Saturday :-)

Rolled out this morning without being tired, nauseated and no headache – so all is good again….. Walked out to what appeared to be the beginning of a day with sunshine – which after 4 solid days of rain – I am glad to see. As it turned out, the sun managed to shine almost all day today, even though clouds were starting to stack as the sun started setting – which provided a couple of nice pictures as well. We also had another visitor last night. THREE new holes. If I read the tracks and holes correctly, it was 1 turtle, digging three separate holes and it looks like she actually nested in two of them. Yay~!!  After checking out all of that, I spent the first half of the morning working on a financial spreadsheet for my new job as Treasurer for the organization Fish with a Vet. After a tasty breakfast and having all I could stand with the spreadsheet, I finally settled into the couch for some NYPD Blues with my bride. Going out for the occasional cigarette, I spotted what turned out to be the biggest hermit crab I have ever seen. Got pictures and a video for you. I’m going to try and trim the video down small enough to get on here – but my editing skills on video are still brand new and need some work, so you may have to look at it on FB if I can’t get it trimmed down far enough to fit. Really didn’t do a heckva lot the rest of the day.

My Queen is now sitting out on the balcony watching for babies. We have two different nests ‘due’ tonight and tomorrow, so she is keeping an eye out for them. I’m going to edit my pictures and try and get them put up for you, then I think I’m gonna join her.

I have signed up for the Rescue Diver course….. another PADI certification. Supposedly not an easy course – but I think it will be worthwhile to have that certification. Lots of book learning and I’m not sure whether I can hack it or not – but darn sure gonna try~! There is a Red Cross course involved with it. I used to be a certified Red Cross instructor (a 100 years ago) — so it should be interesting to see what I remember from it. You know I’ll keep you up on it.

Good night Ya’ll ….. Thankx for stopping in~!

Even his big claw has ‘teeth’~ Yikes~!!

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~!!!! ;-)

  1. Brother, Good to see and hear from you in DreamLand. Question for you – That damned red seaweed blockade at your shoreline, can you take it up and haul it off? For a better escape for the Kiddos and a better view of your ‘landscape’. Glad to hear and see the young ones making out to the great blue waters. Be safe, Brother and have a good and thoughtful Veteran’s Day. 🇺🇸 🎗 🎚

  2. Hey Brother~ Happy to hear from you as well~! That Sargassum seaweed has got the entire island befuddled….. no one is sure why it is showing up here. To answer your question…. yes, I can load it up and haul it off…. but there is sooo friggin’ much of it – it becomes over whelming most of the time. I have been trying to keep a ‘gate’ – opening so-to-speak for our babies…. but that crap comes in, in such massive quantities… just little ole me and a rake and pitch fork, ain’t gonna keep up with it — but I’ll keep trying as time permits. We keep a pretty good vigil going on the nights we are expecting babies – so we can make sure they get to the water…. the rest we leave in Natures hands.

    I hope you are doing well my Brother……. you should be getting close to retirement soon… yea ? I sure hope so — and I hope you and your family are well. Take care.
