A casual Sunday dive

Actually slept in a tiny bit this morning after a mildly decent night’s sleep for a change. I got up and ran up to the store for some milk and odds and ends and came back to a nice breakfast my bride whooped up for us. It got to be 11:00 or so and I started loading DD up for a trip out West for a dive and dive club Board meeting. Met up with almost everybody and was soon in the water for an underwater tour of the pier. The pier is one of the top rated dive spots in the word and it seldom disappoints. This was a fun casual dive and I loved it. I got to ‘bottle-ass‘ around and take all kinds of fun pictures all while getting to see tons of life. Saw a couple of turtles… an [uncooperative] octopus, a porcupine fish, a small school of squid, flounders, and so, so much more. We were down there an hour and 10 minutes before we finally crawled out and got ready for our Board meeting. We met up with a couple of other folks that could not make the dive to discuss up coming events for the dive club. Munched on some loaded French fries (they were out of Tater-Tots)  🙁   and enjoyed several nice cold Budweiser’s while the meeting went on. Finally wrapped it up and got back here. A nice cool shower to wash the salt off and get my pictures up loaded. I took 103 pictures on the dive and wound up saving almost 70 of them. Again, to many to put up on here all at once so will spread them out over a couple of days.

Got to go get some blood drawn tomorrow morning for my appointment with Doc on Thursday — follow up on my Blood Pressure. I have been keeping a spreadsheet on it – and while it is still higher than what Doc wants – it’s a damn site better than it was, but I suspect she’ll change my medication again to get my BP numbers in the range she wants. I hate breaking in new meds…. almost always some goofy side affect that is fun to deal with……. guess we’ll see~~

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

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~!!!! ;-)
