Errands and tropical storms

Hoping to sleep in this morning got wiped out with the struggle of my eye balls floating having to pee so bad……. dammit Emmit~! Got up and got enjoy a little bit of quite time before my bride came stumbling out. We had 3 more visitors last night…… our beach now looks like an official disaster area.  We had had a hard enough rain during the course of the night – the events on the beach were hard to ‘read’ – but I think I have the layout and coordinates of where everything happened, close enough to be able to hunt for babies 60 days from now. Rest of the morning was catching up on world events, all things FB and intermittent rain showers as ‘Jerry’ spins out away from us……. Que Karen. Currently a tropical storm, headed right square for us. She is supposed to hit us around 02:00 in the morning according to the most recent graphic. We aren’t worried. We are well stocked with hurricane supplies and like I stated for the last one….. live in a small bunker. I do not even intend to close hurricane shutters unless I hear something different before I go to bed.

I did a little running today looking for and picking up some stuff to support the local dive club….. other than that, ducking more rain storms as Karen pushes nearer. The rest of the afternoon was watching The Practice with my Queen. The Practice has turned into a very addicting show that is keeping us up later and later at night to see “what happens next”. We still have a season and a half left and really gonna hate to see this one end. Eventually Angie said she would like a steak for dinner, so  I heated up our little indoor grill and dropped a Filet on it for her and some hot dogs for me. About an hour later, we were both enjoying our meals. Rain showers and much bigger clouds are becoming more frequent as we await our next Tropical Storm.

Some pictures from today and more of the dives from Sunday for you. I think [hope] you’ll find the pictures getting much better as they go……

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~!!!! ;-)
