OMG…… was supposed to be a nice easy day……..

Slept in a little bit [until ALMOST 07:00] and rolled out to a reasonably cool day with gorgeous blue skies (and intermittent island rain showers) and a nice casual start to a Saturday morning. I had a DSD to shoot pictures for this morning, but it wasn’t until’ noon~ish, so I got to relax and comfortably get all my morning stuff out of the way. I also had ample time to charge up my camera and my batteries for my lights. I have recently got my shipment of rechargeable batteries for my lights…… there was another lesson I had to learn pretty quick – rechargeable batteries work¬† nothing like conventional batteries…. they don’t ”hold” a charge like regular batteries….. but live and learn……. everything charged and loaded into the truck – I headed into town for my photo-shoot.¬† A single diver although he had his gorgeous girlfriend with him that wanted nothing to do with getting underwater……. he filled out his paperwork, got sized for his gear and we were soon off for a dive. This particular Instructor was new to me, and had a style I was not quite used to – but we made the dive work while he managed his student and I floated around getting pictures of the event. Recent ‘storm’ activity here on the island made visibility under the water a friggin’ mess… but I did what I could to get a decent picture. Visibility in the water where we were at is usually like bath or aquarium water….. today – not so much. Hey, ya gotta play the hand you were dealt. The dive went reasonably well and I’m satisfied the student was happy with his adventure. I ran home, did a quick edit on his pictures and had them back at the shop [on a flash drive] within an hour and a half of the dive.

While I scurried to get my gear rinsed and hung and get picture editing done, my Queen mentioned she saw a car on FB that she would really like me to look at….. okay – let’s figure something out. Some where between editing pictures, dumping them into a hard rive, dropping said hard drive off at dive shop… we also managed to look at a cute little white Sebring convertible. My Bride took it for a test drive, I crawled my big ole fat nash [as far] under the car as I could to look for oil leaks. Me trying to load ‘CASH APS’ on my phone, didn’t work – him trying to load PayPal on his phone, mostly worked…. we finally negotiated a payment and my Queen now has her a new [to her] car…. a convertible no less, like she used to have. The roof doesn’t work – but I’m sure we’ll get that fixed so my Queen will be happy. Car has a trunk on it it that you could get [I’m guesstimating] at least 4 bodies in it…… as long as my Queen is happy with it – I am happy with it….. and I negotiated a price I’m happy with……. geeez what day….. there is a LOT more to the day… but I’m at my limit – so…………

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~!!!! ;-)
