Fathers Day 2020

Up whether I wanted to be or not…. after a less than ideal nights sleep. For some goofy reason – I was waking up on the hour all the way through the night…. I hate it when I do that…. I go right back to sleep – but just don’t feel rested when I get up. Knowing I only had 1 tour, I opted for just a breakfast biscuit before heading out — a bit of a slow start but finally got everybody on the road. A mild rain shower over night did a nice job of knocking most of the dust down from the trail. One Aww ‘shoot’ during the ride – that was eventually fixed, kept the ride interesting and even with that, I think everyone had a good time. I helped clean up the bikes before heading back to my Queen. The Sarah dust is now well settled through our area – it almost hurts your lungs to look out at the distance and see it hanging in the air. Our beautiful blue skies are now hidden by the large gray cloud of sand that hangs in the air. Not much to look at – but our chances of a hurricane drop to almost zero while that stuff is in the air….. so the bright spot of it.

Got back to the house to find out the internet was down….. lovely…. just %$#@ lovely. Fortunately I can edit pictures without the internet, it just don’t load up to the cloud. An hour or so editing pictures and I was done – I just could not get them loaded on to the FB page for the business. Dammit EMMIT~! My Bride in an effort to make sure I was having a nice Father’s day – started feeding me drinks, while I did what I could to keep myself occupied on the computer. No internet also means nothing decent to watch on TV. Amazingly cable was working, so the TV blared in the background with bull riding and golf…… Just in the last ½ hour – the internet is finally back on, after being out 6 hours….. so I am scrambling to get my stuff done before my Bride gets back with my KFC chicken…. not exactly what I had in mind for a Fathers day meal….. but some times you just have to roll with the options you have.

[[ Intermittent pause for face time with my Mouse, Sugar Pop, Squirt and Sam the man wishing me a happy Fathers day- and have my now arrived KFC. Disgusting nasty chicken… but every once in a while – I got to have some…. found it funny my Bride said they did not have any Cole slaw, no, French fries or mashed potatoes….. So – chicken and biscuits it was………Island Life~~~~! ]]

Diving off of the boat tomorrow~!!  YAY~!! That not only means 2 deep long dives… also means no long surface swims….. double yay~! On top of that – my second dive tomorrow will be my 200th certified dive~!!  My dive log tells me that will mean I have spent almost exactly one week under water……. I love it~!

That’s my limit — so out of here…. Happy Fathers day for all you Dad’s reading this….. I hope your day was at least half as good as mine was~!

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~!!!! ;-)
