Back into the water~!

Well the ‘kids’ made it by last night with one of their Daughters (Lexi)  in tow along with her boyfriend Miles. We sat and chatted for a while, took some pictures and they were off. I probably wasn’t much kind of ‘company’ last night as I was still dealing with a very tender stomach and tired on top of that. I’m sure they’ll forgive me though~~

Up bright and early this morning to get ready to make a dive. Haven’t dove in almost 2 weeks….. unacceptable~!  Very happy that my belly was feeling better and that all morning functions happened like they were supposed to. Loaded up and headed out to the West end of the island with my Bride in tow. We were supposed to dive a new [to me] site and it had a nice enough beach, my Queen was gonna beach it while I dove. Sadly, way too much current to contend with, so we opted for ole faithful – the Frederiksted Pier. It’s been a while since I’ve dove the pier – and it never disappoints~! We bailed in and proceeded while Angie walked around taking pictures of the pier all dolled up for Christmas. Visibility was the worst I’ve ever seen it there – probably 40′ – 60’….. but the life under the pier was there and beautiful~! Got lots of fun pictures for you~! After the dive, loaded DD 2.0 up and met the rest of the group (the CRABBS dive club board members) down the road a bit at Rhythms Bar on Rainbow beach. Everybody ordered drinks, talked about the dive and ordered a bite to eat. The fine folks cooking did not let us down with the many burgers ordered along with shrimp and I had a Wahoo (fish) sammich, which I’m pleased to say was cooked excellently~! We talked for the next hour about events for the dive club for the new year, before finally all heading back to our houses. It was nice having my Queen to chat with on that long drive home this time~!

Back here, pictures loaded showers taken and even got to chat with a couple of Grand sons for a little bit~!….. Now, I’m getting this wrote up a little early so I can go crash on the couch with my Bride and check out some more Longmire….. last couple of episodes have gotten better – so we may be on this for a while. I’ve got a 2-tank [boat] dive scheduled in the morning~!! I have to get in some diving before we go to work starting Christmas day. So should have lots more pictures to help me through the lean days.

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~!!!! ;-)
