A good ending to the day……….

Up WAY earlier than I wanted to be this morning – especially after a mostly pitiful nights sleep…Dammit Emmit~!! Anyhow – rolled on out and got my day started. I got all of my gear ready…. I made me a breakfast sammich…. sausage, egg and cheese on a biscuit [Jimmy Dean] and took a bottle of Spark with me to drink on the drive to pick up Shawn and Kaidence  [I apparently have been spelling her name wrong – oops] and then on to where the boat was docked. (Salt River). It made a world of difference~! I had plenty of energy and now well into the day – I have yet [knocking on wood] to get light headed. First time this week I haven’t got light headed at least once at some point during the day. I have known for a long time now the benefits of a small decent breakfast to kick your day off with – just been too tired (and mostly too stupid) to follow through on my busier days. Something else I will work on as I try to improve my health and physique.

Had a 2-tank dive today with a much fuller boat – sadly there were a couple of divers on the boat that created enough ‘issues’ it took a lot away from the dives [for me] – but I guess you’ll have that every now and again. I felt bad for the Dive Master on the load – as she had her hands mostly full with those two……. None-the-less….. I was diving with friends in a beautiful location, so I made the best of it. I did manage some fairly decent shots, so I now have LOTS of dive pictures to share with you. The boat is full the next several days – so probably no dives for me until next week…….. unless…………. the dive shop owner caught me as I was unloading from the boat today and hinted that they have a lot of student classes coming up – and that she really would like pictures of them……… [[ I suppressed the urge to pump my fist and scream YES~!]] and casually said ”cool – let me know”. Keeping my fingers crossed that turns into a bit of a habit~! For now tho – looking at walking for exercise the next 3 days at least (unless I get a phone call)   😉

Got back to my Queen and got my gear rinsed and I got a shower – when I noticed a Subway bag in the fridge……. YAY~!!! My Queen surprised me with an island version of a ‘double meat club’ ….. my most favorite sammich from that particular establishment. I say island version because the folks on this island apparently have no friggin’ concept of ”double meat”. For untold reasons, it just confuses the hell out of them, but my Queen surprised me and I gleefully inhaled my sammich as I sat down to chat with you all…… so a really good ending to a less than stellar day. YAY~!!!

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~!!!! ;-)
