Walking and flamboyant’s

A fairly early start after crashing a little bit late last night. Got into a couple of episodes of Designated Survivor and wanted to see what was going to happenĀ  next. Nothing really planned for the day besides wanting to get a walk in….. and by 09:00 – I had strapped on my hiflalutin walking shoes – equipped with my state of the art insoles and I was off like a heard of turtles~! It’s been a while [week or so] since I did any walking and I was kind of looking forward to it – because I really do feel better when I am doing the walks…. While I have been plenty active during my non-walking days…. I just don’t feel as good as when I walk. Especially my belly. Go figure. When I started out, the plan was to hit one of my previous paths up almost 600′ of mountain – but by the time I got to my turn off for that road – I still had not got into my rhythm, so I opted for distance versus the mountain. Sometimes I get into my rhythm really quick and easy and other times it takes me a mile or so…… I didn’t hit it until almost 2 miles today – so glad I decided to skip the hills. When I start out walking…… I cough and hack and hock up loogey’s, belch, occasionally fart…. just basically a bona fide mess, until I settle in and my breathing straightens out. Maybe the mountain on the next walk. I did get to enjoy the beauty of a local tree, now currently in full bloom, called a Flamboyant tree. Lots of them on the island and they are beautiful this time of year — I took several pictures of them for you. Finally back, dried off, hydrated and a small breakfast and ready for the rest of the day. I finished up the breakfast dishes, took the trash out to my truck and headed into town. Dropped the trash off at the dump, stopped by and picked up mail and then stopped at the dive shop to drop off flash drives – thus completing my second job. I also signed up for a dive tomorrow~! I’m ready for a couple of boat dives and having some play time with my new camera~! So should have lots of new underwater pictures for you tomorrow~!

No new underwater work on the books for the immediate future now – but have a couple of small on land jobs I’ll probably try to knock out before my next underwater gig, coming up next week. So signin’ out here…… Pix from today and some from the last month or so you may have not seen yet.

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~!!!! ;-)
