Pictures, pictures….. pictures

Up after another mostly wonderful nights sleep. Up a minute or two after 06:00 and ready for anything. Happily, my bride slept in for a couple of hours while I bottle-a$$ed around and got ready for my day. I made me a breakfast sammich, got my gear and my cooler ready and still had time to kill before I ‘reported for duty’ at the dive shop. I did get to spend an hour or so with my Queen before taking off which is always nice.  I showed up at the dive shop just in time, to drop my gear and start snapping pictures of the class. Only a couple of shots, but they were pertinent to the session. There was an actual DSD [Discover Scuba Diving] class going on at the same time – so I slid over and scored a couple pictures of it while it was in session. The class moved out into the water, and for the next couple of hours, I swam circles, figure 8’s and every other position I could get into, to get shots of these guys getting put through their paces. The instructor is not letting up and making sure these guys are hitting the mark in every scenario he is presenting. We surfaced and dropped a half a dozen times during the day for review of what the guys were trying to get accomplished. Fun to listen to and even more fun trying to capture it in pictures. I took almost 600 pictures today and wound up saving 200+. I deleted multiple pictures I would have normally ‘slobbered‘ over – but they no longer make the cut with the inception of my new camera – Guess I am just getting a heckva lot pickier now.

I was supposed to work for Island Daughter tomorrow – but those plans changed and I now have the day ‘off’ – Yay~! I plan on getting in another ‘walk about’ and spending some time relaxing with my bride. Guess I better enjoy the day off tomorrow – as I am scheduled to work either diving or taking pictures on 4 wheelers for the next 5 days in a row. While it is ‘work’ – it’s a hellva lot of fun and I enjoy doing it. I get to challenge myself to get the pictures I think everyone wants to see….. so you should have loads of new pictures for the next couple of weeks…. under water or above…… It should be a hoot either way~~!

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~!!!! ;-)
