Nope – not trying to sound like a Pirate….. just that aggravated….. we are getting closer to our goal of getting back to where we want to be – but OMG what it is taking to get there……  money, is what it is taking,  LOTS of it…….. jeeeezus~!!! Took the rental car up to have it cleaned up before taking it back to the airport (we smoked in it while driving it and that $ 30.00 cleaning fee is a lot less than the $250.00 fee they charge if they find out you smoked in it). Dropped the car off and went to pay the balance on it…… and after a very long, maddening, aggravating, pull  what hair you have left out, effort involving 4 phone calls and an hour and a half – I find out our rental is going to cost me $ 700.00 more than expected (for a total of $2300.00 for 5 weeks)~! Then, get an email from my accountant explaining the most recent letter from Uncle Sam on our now thoroughly FUBAR’ed 2017 taxes that ‘nicely’ explains, we owe another $ 1100.00 in taxes from 2017 (for those of you keeping track – that is now $ 7000.00 over and above what we have already paid~!…… run a stick up my butt and call me a corn dog…… when is this crap gonna stop ???? PLUS – I am still trying to get rid of the 500 lbs of transmission sliding around the bed of my truck…. and I owe another $ 430.00 for the transmission install plus getting rid of the old damn transmission~!  My nerves [and wallet] are not gonna take much more of this crap……. Island life my a$$~!!!!

Sorry you all – but I’ve had about all I can take for one day…… tomorrow will [hopefully] be a better day….. rest of the dive pictures~~~~

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

Well Goddammit Emmit~!!!  It’s been over an hour now and I got 1 friggin picture to load…. one…..ONE….. I went and shaved… took my shower (with water pressure than wouldn’t drown an ant)…and still only ONE picture loaded….. I’m beginning to think maybe the island doesn’t want me here…..  🙁   maybe tomorrow ??

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~!!!! ;-)
