Rain, rain – go away~~

Up fairly early to yet another rain shower and having to stare at my grass that is now starting to get gnarly looking. My Queen joined me a little bit later and we had a nice relaxing slow start to the day. Her cough was bothering her a little more than usual last night and this morning – so she did her breathing treatment a little earlier than usual. Usually, she starts breakfast right after her treatment – but I some how suspected she wasn’t up for cooking, and I really wasn’t either, so I was gonna recommend a Polly’s breakfast. She came out from her treatment and said, ”what would think of doing Polly’s for breakfast this morning ?” Great minds……… I ordered our standard breakfast…. she gets one waffle (and a couple of sausage links when they have them, which they did this morning) and I get the Waffle henhouse special (1 waffle, 2 eggs and a couple of sausage links) the pig that I am……. I ran in and got them, got to chat with Jeff from the dive shop and Deanna, a friend I haven’t seen in a coon’s age. I was thinking about that expression on the way back from collecting our breakfast…… what the heck does that mean ? Racoon’s don’t really live to be that old….. why a coon’s age ? Anyhow…… back, wiped out our breakfast and then settled in to our own devices. Somewhere around 1:00 – we hadn’t had any rain in the past 5 hours or so…. so I decided I was gonna mow. You know – in the highest heat of the day…. no breeze….. yeah- good move on my part~! But, the grass was kinda dry and I have a whole bunch of diving to do the next 3 days…. so it was a now or never kinda thing. I stayed at it for a solid hour – having to go fairly slow because the grass was not as ‘kinda’ dry as I thought it was…. so I had to go over a lot of places twice…… but I eventually got it. Dripping wet with sweat – I was done~! Thankfully, weed eating didn’t really need done real bad- so I put it off, waiting I guess for a non-diving day, in the morning when it’s a smidge cooler and drier.

My Bride experimented with supper, making some roast beef sliders on small buttered buns and a couple of different dipping sauces. I didn’t much care for the sauces, but the sliders them selves were darn tasty~! Maybe could have stood an extra slice or two of meat – but darn tasty none the less. Now putting fresh charges on cameras and all of my batteries, ready for a couple of morning boat dives tomorrow. Tuesday will be in the local bay here shooting an Open Water student, who happens to be a buddy of mine – then what promises to be a really big day Wednesday…. maybe 3 or 4 dives~! More on that as it gets closer.

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~!!!! ;-)
