Diving and the Superbowl~!

Up a little earlier than I would have liked this morning because I had to be up long enough to get my ‘morning stuff’ out of the way before taking off for the West end of the island to take part in a ‘club dive’. Diving with a shop I rarely dive with. I have got just plumb comfortable diving with the bunch from Cane Bay Dive shop and diving with this group was taking me way out of my comfort zone…… I don’t like that, but over the past couple of years, have found out that, as uncomfortable as it is for me – it is a great way to expand your world – whether you like it or not. It helps me maintain my mantra of – if you haven’t tried it you may be missing out on the greatest experience of your life. Seems as though, it gets a damn site tougher to do, the older you get – course, it could just be my crotchety old ass too…….  😉  The boat that I wound up on is a dang site smaller than what I’m used to, and while it only holds six divers – it made for a very crowded boat….. definitely not my cup of tea~~ but I made the most of it. The best part about those two dives – is, I got to go to two different dive sites that I have not been to yet. First one was called ‘End of the Line’ ( It is where the reef actually ends) – The second one was called ‘The Swirling Reef of Death’. Don’t panic Vera – it’s not no where near as bad as it sounds and actually turned out to be a site I like quite a bit.

I took two cameras with me today — My trusty little Go Pro and an old Sea Life camera that I found last night while looking for pieces to fix my Go Pro diving case.  The dives were slow and calm enough – I got to take multiple shots of the same thing with BOTH cameras, so I  could see the difference. I was hoping the Sea Life would be a fun surprise because it has a small flash on it. Nope~! Flash wasn’t strong enough and colors are really washed out because [I’m presuming] no red filter on it. My little Go Pro blew the Sea Life camera out of the water with picture quality…… but you have got lots of fun pictures to help me enjoy any way. I hung out after the dives to chat with club members that were on the dive with me, before heading back home for a shower and to get pictures up.

My Queen ran up to the store to pick up some munchie type material, as we have decided we are going to watch the Super Bowl this year. It will be the first football game I have watched in well over 2 years. I stopped watching them when that bunch of prima donnas started kneeling during the National Anthem. I’m not gonna go into that whole mess, cause I’ll just get pi$$ed and this will turn into a 1000 word rant…… so I’m gonna put up some pictures from today and enjoy the rest of the afternoon with my Queen and some snacks…… should go without saying, alcohol is [already] involved……………  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
