Another turtle and some more rain……………

Due to the fact I went to bed a little earlier than usual last night – I was of course, up a little earlier than usual. Came out to heavy clouds with just a peek of sunshine through those clouds, which made for another gorgeous sunrise and the hope of another day without rain. Also woke up to the smell of freshly dug sand and another big turtle nest~! Fairly confident she laid eggs, from the way the nest was configured so that makes # 56~!! We should have opportunities for babies well into the New Year~!  Yay~!!!

I started in on my book learning for my new PADI certification….. wowser…. not sure if maybe I didn’t bite off a little bit more than I might be able to chew. Some pretty intense stuff in this course – and I’m only 40 pages into the first book  (of 200 pages) I’m not chickening out of it yet – at the very least – I’m learning some good stuff -and- it’s keeping me off of the couch.

As the day progressed – I’d stop to watch an episode of NYPD Blues (or two) with my Queen, then come back for a couple of chapters of learning. The big looming clouds outside finally overpowered the sun and we had monsoon type rain for about 30 minutes….. the sun finally broke back out, but clouds are still aplenty and rain is still in the forecast for the next 5 days ……. Dammit Emmit~!

That’s about it for today – My Queen is out on a baby watch and I’m going to try and get in some more book learnin’ and maybe another episode of NYPD Blues (or two). We just started Season # 8…. woo-hoo~~~  😉

Happy Veterans day and thank you to my Brothers & Sisters that are serving or have served.

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

Nest # 56~!!

Sun playing peek-a-boo…..

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~!!!! ;-)
