Odds and Ends

The day started off a heckuva lot earlier than I cared for, but my Queen was up early for her weekly day of labor and I wanted to be up with her and try to get that day off to a decent start for her. I rolled out shortly after I heard her clear the bathroom and soon we were sipping coffee and getting caught up on world and FB events. She agreed to let me make her a bit of breakfast and I was happily surprised when she consumed the majority of the 2 eggs and couple of pieces of sausage that I made for her. Got her on her way – I made me a similar breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed it, before loading up the mower and weed eater and running in town to manicure the ATV yard. Without interruptions, I can knock that yard out in right at an hour and was soon backing into my slot back at the house. Yard is all ‘purty’ now and ready for customers.

I discovered yesterday – one of my strobes [flash] for my camera is misfiring and is essentially like not having a second flash….. Dammit Emmit~! After doing the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen – I sat and ‘fooled’ with the strobes for an hour or so until I had to make a dash to the airport to pick up our island ‘kids‘ who were flying back in from the states for the holidays. I got them delivered to their mountain top. After that was all done, I sat back down and went to work on the strobes. I have figured out where the issue is but alas, don’t know how to fix it… yet. Dammit Emmit~! I’ll get ‘er done though….. one way or the other.

My Bride finally came home and I have been plying her with drinks as she sits and relaxes and I chat with you. I’m gonna try and convince her to eat a little something before retiring for the night. We get to sleep in tomorrow [hopefully] as nothing planned other than a doctors appointment for me around noon. Gonna go have him look at a couple of the ‘barnacles’ on the side of my face and set up a time to have them sliced off. In the meantime – going to try and get in a couple more dives. The water is still cooling down….. down to a brisk 79°. Awwee.. right ? It’s not terrible between dives if the wind isn’t blowing to hard…. but usually by the end of the second dive, it is starting to get chilly….. dammit…. I may have to break down and get me a wetsuit……. in the meantime – today warmed  up nicely…… 84°~! Hopefully the water temperature will follow suit soon~!

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~!!!! ;-)
