Woke up this morning to 2 new turtle diggings— YAY~!!! Even though I didn’t get to actually see them (the turtles)….. my ‘sleuthing’ knowledge came in to play so I can ‘read’ the tracks and figure out what happened while we snoze [is that a word ?] the night away~~ So coordinates have been logged so I know where to look in two months for babies~!! YaY~!
A nice breakfast and some of The Practice while we waited to hear from the garage here where DD is currently housed….. We both had medications waiting for us at the local pharmacy and still waiting on word about DD……Dammit Emmit~! Almost at zero hour, the garage called and said the computer’ in DD is deep fried to a crackly crunch and we would need a new one… Dammit Emmit~! How much is that gonna be ? The computer will be $400+ and to hook it up and ‘tune’ it to DD will be another $300+ bucks…. DAMMIT EMMIT~! So – a minimum of $700……. Shaking my head….. but what are we gonna do??? GOTTA have wheels…… Crap~! How long will this take…. minimum 2 weeks, to get the part ordered and get it in…..Dammit Emmit~! So…… at least 2 weeks, no car….. gonna have to rent a car…… BUT – you can’t do that on this island without several weeks notice……CRAP~!!! Luckily….. a friend made an offer shortly before they moved back to the ‘Land of Plenty’….. if I needed a vehicle….. I was welcome to use his truck (that he kept as he’ll be making multiple trips back to the island)…. so a couple of texts, a phone call or two….. and we now have ‘wheels’ to use while DD awaits repairs…… Somebody is smiling on us [a
Little bit]……. Ironically, his truck is also a Dodge Dakota (albeit much newer)…. so for the interim…. we are getting around in DD 2.0 😉
After almost an hour of hiking to get our meds, get the truck, get back to get my Queen, we finally wound up – up at our favorite place…. Blues~~~ We sat and drank and had many marvelous conversations with friends and for the first time in 48 hours could actually relax and have a good time….. We wound up shutting Blues down and now back here in our wonderfully conditioned air….. I still don’t understand how some of these folks are getting by with out it~~?
I have full intention of making my 2-tank dive tomorrow morning on the West end of the island, now that I have wheels again….. supposed to have several days of rain after tomorrow and I have lined up a job a I can do indoors……. don’t really want to do it….. but if crap keeps going wrong for us — I won’t have much of a choice — -for now — looking forward to getting wet tomorrow and getting some great pictures for you~!!
Good Night Ya’ll – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping~!
