Sharks and Blues~~~

Up before my alarm early enough to get my morning stuff out of the way…. not to be confused with my evening stuff which you all are a part of.  🙂  Headed out for Salt River for a couple of dives…….MmMmMmmmm good stuff. First dive site was Salt River East…… visibility left a lot to be desired but at one point I wound up with 5 – count ’em 5 sharks circling me~!! I even had one bounce off of my fins, which made for an abrupt change in my direction….. but OH MY how wonderful. I did managed to suck up about a ¼ tank of air in the process though. That gets the ole heart rate up there, let me tell you~! Lots of other fun stuff on the dive – but nothing came close to the shark encounter~!  Second dive was Salt River West – and while it was a gorgeous dive with it’s own set of sharks – it could not touch the first dive. WOW~! Hung around after we got back to the dock and enjoyed a couple of ice cold Budweiser’s and a couple of cigarettes before loading up and heading back to my Queen. She – had been grocery shopping while I was out playing under the waves. Both back about the same time…… drinks seemed appropriate, so we commenced……… that led into heading up to Blues for a bite to eat and some liquid refreshment. As per usual – there was a dang site more liquid refreshment than chow – although I did manage to knock out 2 massive meatball subs and we stayed and chatted and drank. The place had a presentable band, the place was hopping and filled with mostly local regulars. A very satisfying evening. Finally at my limit – I coaxed my bride into the truck and headed back here…….. all settled in for the evening — I’m gonna put up some pix from today. I’d like to say we’re gonna sit and knock out a couple of episodes of Dexter – but right now all I want to do is lay down……. so – I hope you enjoy the pictures…. and I’ll catch ya tomorrow. (Look for a couple of fun videos on FB-too big to get on here).

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~!!!! ;-)
