A Night out………

After a mostly wonderful (and rare) nights sleep…. I got up feeling good and ready for the day ahead yesterday morning. We were working the ATV business again with a couple of tours scheduled. Got there, got the bikes filled with oil (the ones that needed it) and got them staged for our first group. Was supposed to be 4 bikes but some of the folks didn’t show, so it turned out to be just 2 bikes. Normally I wouldn’t ride follow up for 2 bikes – but since I was there and ready to roll – I went along anyways and took pictures. Fun group, good drivers made for an easy tour. (I didn’t have to get off my bike a half a dozen times to get people out of the weeds).

Second tour was 3 bikes and a lot more of what I’m used to….. and then some. Two of the young ladies were first time riders……. while one of them did pretty good, the other made up by having me ‘bail her out’ enough times – I lost count, but you’ll have those days every once in a while~! Finally back, bikes washed and filled with gas and put away. Had to get back to the house and get cleaned up and head to mid-island. We were invited to some dear friends house for dinner. We don’t often get to spend time with just them and it was an absolutely wonderful evening. We had a couple of drinks, an awesome meal and some really great conversation. We finally had to wrap it up to make that challenging drive back to our end of the island. I think I’ve told you the story before about the headlights on the cars and how the affect you when you’re driving on the left side of the road. Never any fun – especially when a whole bunch of these entitled so and so’s  won’t or can’t use their dimmer switch – lever…….. It kinda sours a nice evening, but it is something you have to deal with on this island….. still a great evening overall. Safely back at the house, it was late [enough] my belly was pleasantly full and I had ‘just enough’ to drink, I was too tired to contend with a computer.

Up and at it again early this morning to make a couple of dives. Got to dive my most favorite dive site – Armageddon~! Fun enough dive – I think I’m gonna save the story of the dive and pictures from it for tomorrow. I’ll be putting on a roof on the porch at Gecko’s and I don’t think that’ll be a lot to write about anyway….. but maybe a sneak peek of the dive~!

Good Night ya’ll ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Thankx for stopping in~!

Me………. and my Shaaaadow…….   😉

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~!!!! ;-)
