Original title for the blog tonight huh ? 😉 Should give you some hint how this one is gonna go probably….. Up earlier than planned after getting to bed really late and then a rough time trying to get to sleep… oh well, maybe tonight.  Did not get a heckva lot accomplished today…. I did breakfast dishes and I worked on the stove… one of the knobs was leaking propane when you used it and besides stinking the house up – it was a little bit dangerous, but I’m 99.99% sure I have it fixed, even though I did manage to shoot a flame out the front of it one time that did manage to singe my mustache a little bit. Just a good thing I don’t have eye brows or hair….. no harm, no foul. Aside from that – didn’t do much of anything else….. studied some more tutorials on my camera and watched several truly, truly stupid movies. Choices for the type movies we like are slim pickin’s…. or I’m just not smart enough to find them…. pee-uuuu. I tried to feel bad about about not getting out and walking, but just couldn’t make myself do it – and just flat refuse to feel bad about it. There is tomorrow, although I am thinking seriously spending the early half of the day cleaning the gutters. The greenery I see poking out over the edge of the gutters, tells me they probably need it – and since that is our sole source of water [other than the 5-6 cases of bottled water we keep on hand for emergencies and guests] I figure I better get up there and at least take a look at it. The little feller who I pi$$ed off by mowing my own grass probably ain’t gonna do it for me. I’d feel better having an extension ladder to do it – but I don’t have one –  but the heavy duty 8′ step ladder I do own will probably suffice…. and yes girls and damn neighbors….. I promise to be careful~! Old decrepit fart that I am.

I have back to back dives scheduled for this weekend. I don’t normal like to dive on weekends because the boat is usually full of ‘weekend’ divers that have no friggin’ clue what they’re doing and thoroughly annoy me in the process, but I am trying to get a little extra water time with my camera – and Sunday is supposed to be a “by invitation” only ‘bad a$$’ boat load for a special dive. There is only one place I know of to dive with those needed qualifications. I have only dove it once, but fell instantly in love with it when I did it – so I’m very happy to be invited on that particular dive and could not say no when I got the invite~! I’ll wait to after the dive to tell you about it (I don’t want to jinx it – this dive only happens a couple of times a year)

Well dang….. I managed 500 words out of this one after all…. rest of pictures from yesterday…….

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~!!!! ;-)
