3 Dives~! ….. more sad/bad news………..

It’s already almost 8:00 pm and I’m not even barely even close to where I need to be…. so I’m gonna hit the high lights and cut out early so I can get a shower and and a couple of hours of sleep for a really big day tomorrow…………. Three dives today – not deep or brutally long – but 3~! My buddy and another guy got their open water certifications today~!!  I got a TON of good pictures today. While getting some AWESOME shots of a Stingray…. apparently touched my knee to some fire coral and for the last 4 hours now – it feels like I have a small pool of lava sitting on the side of my knee.  Just goes to show the need for extra good buoyancy for an underwater photographer….. but AWESOME shots of the Stingray I was going after~! I tried wiping it down with vinegar, and it helps, but you have to keep it saturated and the smell of the vinegar was worse to me than the burning. Lesson learned~!

Spoke with my Nephew/ 2nd Cousin only to find out his Mom, my 1st Cousin is having health issues as well…… DAMMIT EMMIT~!!  More on that as it develops….

Again, big, long, day tomorrow and there is a ½ a chance – it will be late enough, or I will be FUBARD’d enough, that by the time I get back….nothing will be written or posted….. sorry~~ just gonna have to check in and find out…………………..

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~!!!! ;-)

  1. Hi Papaw! Just reading your blog before bed 🙂 Sorry to hear about what is going on. I love you and miss you!! Hopefully see you soon!!!

    1. Hi my Sugar Pop…… It warms my heart to know you are checking in on me once in a while Sweetheart. Sadly, the news is getting worse….. but it is a sad unfortunate part of life that everybody has to deal with at some point in their life. I will work my way through it and hopefully be the stronger for it. Your Mom is keeping me up on what all you are doing – and I have to tell you — I am just SO PROUD of you~! Can’t wait until the next time I get to see you to give you a big hug and a kiss. I love You~~ <3

  2. Hi again:) I was told that you will be here on Sunday and I can not be more excited!! Even considering the circumstances, I am still so happy I will get to see you both!! And, even though you said you were expecting this, it is still hard to even think about. I have been praying every night that she will be ok, or at least be happy. I love you and can not wait to see you!!

    1. Hi my Sugar Pop~
      IF everything goes according to plan – we will indeed be there Sunday afternoon. Keeping our fingers crossed extra tight that everything does go according to schedule. I know there is some kind of party at Aunt Stephanie’s… birthday for Will and maybe his Dad ?[Uncle Josh]. Sure hope everyone is there – it would be great to see everybody our first day back – but if not – no biggie – we will make our way around to see everybody.
      It is indeed a very sad circumstance, but me and Oma are working through it and we both know life must go on, which is just another reason we will be so happy to see everybody else.
      Please understand Sugar Pop – Aunt Susan is not going to be okay…. you are old enough now, you should be able to process that. If not – I would love to sit down with you and explain it for you.
      Either way – me and Oma are SO excited to be able to see you, your Mom, Dad and Brother and Sister – we can’t hardly wait….. We’ll see you VERY soon~! I love You~

      1. From what I have heard I figured she wouldn’t but I still wanted to pray for her. I love you too and Evie wants to say something too…..

        Hi papaw! i love you and miss you AND OMA so much. I can not wait to see YOUUUUU. I am praying for your sister. LOVE YOU💕💕💕💕💕💕💕😁

        1. It was SOOOO great to see you both….. I’m already counting the days until we come back, even though traveling for two days to get there really stinks. Thank you for the kind words about my Sister…. it is sad, but a harsh reality of life. Please take care of yourself and help Mom and Dad out where you can and I’ll see you in a short 10 weeks. Sure do love and miss you both~!!
