Riding the trails again…………

Up earlier than usual this morning for another day of trail riding. Actually, we only had one tour today, but due to celebrations going on in town (Frederiksted) we had to get there almost an hour and a half early, to get the ride started and get back in town before the big parade started and trapped us in our lot. Riders all thankfully showed up a little bit early, we got them all signed in, loaded up and headed out. A couple of technical issues on the trail and one guy who just would not hold the pace, made us run a little bit late – but we worked through everything, got the machines cleaned, gassed up and put away for more fun on Monday morning and managed to get out of there just in the nick of time. I don’t like operating under those kind of conditions, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. It all worked out. It’s all good…………..

Back to mid island – we did a little bit of running for essentials for the weekend….. booze, smokes, milk and Actifed. How’s that for a combo ? A handful of drinks, a bite to eat and I’m ready for a shower and some shut eye. I have got a 2-tank dive scheduled for in the morning~~~  Yay~!!! So I’ll be able to get some nice underwater shots for you for a change. Sunday I have volunteered to be a safety diver for the Dolphin Swim down at the pier. It is a youth group here on the island that do an annual swim from the pier to Rainbow beach (about a mile or so swim) We stage along the pier to make sure everybody gets off and way from the pier safely, then we use the rest of our air to dive around the pier. I think I am bringing a couple of refuse bags with me and will use my time cleaning the bottom. The last storm that blew through here really junked up the ocean floor.

For now though, time for a shower and maybe some Longmire before I call it a night……..

Today is our ‘baby’s’ birthday (Jeni) ….. 31 big years~! Happy Birthday Honeybear. I Love You~!

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~!!!! ;-)
