Hello friends, neighbors, sports fans and all the rest of you…… finally….. not too tired….. finally…. [reasonably] stable internet….. finally…. lots of pictures that I have now got uploaded and can publish….. I’ve missed chatting these past couple of days, but it has been some kind of week for the ole fat boy and his Queen…… I forgot to see where I left off – so gonna wing it. I know there had been entirely too much stuff happened to get it all into one post….. so I’m just gonna go in spurts and see if I can get you caught up a little bit…. when I left ya…. we were just about ready for my Dive Club Christmas party……. we made it to that —- As a rule I don’t like doing Christmas stuff that early in the month (1st)……… can you believe it is December already ????? This year has been almost out of control~! but I digress……… we went to the Christmas party and the club did a great job setting the event up. Pretty decorations, what I thought was pretty decent food (more about that in a minute) – lots of drinks and folks that are becoming really good friends….. There was a ‘pirate’ gift exchange…. and for the relatively small crowd there – there were lots of fun gifts to be had….. our meal was spaghetti, chicken parmesan and some kind of vegetable thing that just did not look or sound good. I opted for a small bit of the spaghetti and the chicken parmesan along with a salad and a roll. The party went well into the night – even though most of the folks in the club knew they had to be up really early the next morning to help out with the big Iron Man competition being held the next day. Lots of fun and laughter made for a really fun evening – even though it was too early in the month [for me] to being doing that kind of stuff. I wound up in a very desired slot in the gift exchange, being almost the very last one to be called – and even though I did my level best – (I was allowed to ‘steal’ almost any one of the gifts I had seen up til then) – I still wound up with some kind of mug that I didn’t really care for – so I “gifted” it to a friend that really liked it. Live and learn……. Finally back at the condo at a semi-reasonably hour, I was still a skosh hungry, so I heated up a couple of pieces of KFC we had left over from the previous night, wolfed them down and fell into bed, knowing my alarm was going off at 04:30 hours. ( I had to be downtown for the Rescue Swimmer meeting by 05:30)…. I fell pretty quickly to sleep and was sawing logs pretty solid until 03:45…… that’s when I got hit with a belly pain I can only describe as being stomach punched by a charging 8000 lb buffalo…… OMG that is a nasty way to wake up~!!!
Well Dammit Emmit~! I’m at my 500 words already….. so I’m gonna put up some pictures for you, starting back where my laptop (actually it was a joint effort between phone and laptop) malfunctioned….. stay with me the next couple of days to get caught up…….
Good Night Ya’ll …… Thankx for stopping in~!
