Diving, Internet and Golf~~

Internet has been a real challenge here the past day or so — not sure if it is island wide or just our little piece of the island and not sure how long it’s gonna last now, so this may be cut short. I did a “full moon” dive last night. My 4th night dive and it left a lot to be desired. The boat had 4 new divers on it and they were everywhere, including on top of me several times. Visibility was really bad because of big waves and not a lot of life where we were at. We did get to see one thing that was kinda cool. It is kind of like the bioluminescent – they have a technical name that I never understood – but locally are referred to as a string of pearls. They are micro-organism’s that look for the world like a string of pearls (hence the name) – you can’t see them during the day – you can seem them at night because they glow. Either a green or blue color – really pretty neat to watch them floating around and watching them light up. I took some pictures – but haven’t had a chance to look at them yet – so I don’t know of any of them turned out. I’ll put some on here if they did (I almost always look at my pictures after I write this)

I was invited to play some golf this morning…… now understand, that this is only the 3rd time I have ever ‘golfed’ in my lifetime…….  I happily accepted and tagged along with 4 other guys. Was supposed to be 5 other guys – but one of them wimped out. The other 4 guys are golfers….. I was along for the comedic effect. I fulfilled my role well. I shot a solid 180~! It was probably more than that – but the guys refused to score anything over 10 on a round. Beautiful scenery, gorgeous weather, cold beer and friends…… I had a good time and I don’t think I loused their day up too much  🙂  We stopped by Blues after golf and sat there and succeeded in getting mostly torn down…… I know, big shock huh? I did manage to win $120 in dice games, which help cover the cost of my round of golf this morning. I had to buy a shirt “with a collar on it”. Cheapest shirt I could find was $75.00~!! AND – it did even have a damn pocket on it~! Oh well – totally worth it for the fun I had~!

I’m gonna quit here and try to get some pictures loaded before the internet takes another dump. I have a 2 tank boat dive scheduled for first thing tomorrow morning – should have LOTS of pictures from it.

Good Night Ya’ll . . . . . . . . . . . . Thankx for stopping in~!

Stocked up on junk~!!  🙂

FINALLY got a hair cut……  : )

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~!!!! ;-)
