A job well done…………..

A fairly typical start to the day – neither of us slept in – but not up terribly early either. I ran downtown for a couple of needed items and then back for a breakfast of pancakes, ham and bacon….. Yummers~!  Spent the next couple of hours on line…. the world of FB, and other items I haphazardly considered newsworthy….. Not too many things I consider news worthy any more these days…… since you can’t believe a friggin’ word you hear or read any more. Close to 3:00, we both cleaned up and headed to the wrap party I mentioned yesterday. I thought it would be neat for my Queen to meet the group I have spent an inordinate amount of time with. It took a little bit, but everybody finally made it. There was drinking, eating, drinking, a ton of smiles, drinking and so on and so forth….. Just a really good bunch of people having a really good time. I kind of lost my Bride in the shuffle as I was constantly surround by people wanting to know a little bit more about me and my opinions from the view of ”behind the lens” watching all that has went on the past couple of months. As I found out later – my bride was as popular as ever as she made her way through the crowd and they all got to know her……… after a couple of hours or so, every one fed, happy and about chatted out – folks started filing out and it wasn’t long before we did the same. I congratulated the remaining guys on their accomplishment of making Dive Master and or Instructor and then headed for the door….. unless you are best friends with the host – never be the last person to leave a party……. In my infinite wisdom…. I was busy enough chatting with different folks, I never got around to eating anything, even though there was a heckva nice spread…… I did however manage to keep an steady flow of alcohol going in me….. and am now starting to pay that price. Back at the house – everything put away….. I throwed some big ole hot dogs in the pot and they have just finished boiling…… so I’m gonna wrap this up here and get something solid in me before I get completely stupid. While I did bring my camera with me to the event – there are times to take pictures…… and times NOT to take pictures…… this was one of those times NOT to take pictures. Wow – now that I re-read that, it sounds a little bit smarmy…… I didn’t mean like that~!!! It’s just that there times not to have some moron sticking a camera in your face………… so more blasts from the past pictures for you…….. more diving pictures coming soon. We have a ‘stove guy’ coming tomorrow morning to try and figure out why we keep getting flames shooting out from one of the knobs (and melting it beyond use) and that I am apparently to stupid to figure out on my own……. Should be an interesting conversation…….

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~!!!! ;-)
