Monday the 25th~~~

Some days you just struggle to come up with a catchy title…… not  sure how effective ‘catchy‘ titles are – but it is fun trying to come up with them. I mean, seriously, have you ever logged onto my page and saw the title of the blog and thought…..  nah….. ain’t worth reading ? I am truly interested if this has ever happened to you – – – – – maybe I’m putting too much effort into my titles….. please let me know.

Up and out the door [sans breakfast this time] headed for mid-island to catch my most favorite dive boat at Salt River…… I slept in a little bit and weirdly, awoken by the alarm I had set. It was a tough night as we both were breaking in a brand spankin new mattress. We finally got our old one swapped out for a new one, courtesy of my Bride – I had already given up on the broke di*ks and thought we were stuck with the $ 1500 piece of crap we had leaning against the guest bedroom wall. A new mattress delivered and in place — this one was labeled as ‘firm’ – Wooo – boy howdy, they weren’t kiddin’~! This was like sleeping on a piece of 1″ plywood with carpet on it…… but [thankfully], by the end of of the night it had softened up a little bit. I figure it will take at least a week before we understand if we like it or not.

Aside from the plywood like mattress – I was up and out the door for for more diving off of my favorite boat…… a pretty decent collection of divers on board, so I didn’t have to worry so much about being climbed on or kicked during the dive. The seas were agitated and there were respectable waves we had to to deal with. The dives, however, once underwater, panned out to our favor…… visibility was good, we had a nice selection of sea critters show up for our viewing pleasure and just two good dives over all. Getting back on board the boat turned into a challenge – as the Sea decided not to cooperate any at all – but we finally all got on board and were nonetheless for wear. There were Lobster, Sharks, Eels [both varieties] and tons of fishes……. can’t hardly ask for more. Jump into edited version – back at the house, gear rinsed….. me showered, my bride made my day by accepting an invite to dinner [out]. Dinner left a LOT to be desired – but the company and the view were to die for – so – it’s all good~!

Back here – trying to keep it together enough to finish this….. how’m I doing ???  😉  pictures from dinner and [maybe] dive pictueres  (ya gotta see the sting ray picture)….. but for now…..

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. Great pictures as usual. Not sure about the title, had not given much thought to it because if I got to this page, am going to read it no matter what the “Title” says. So, guess answer to your question, doesn’t matter to me. Do I look at it? Yes. Do I remember title? No. I remember what you write about. Hope your new mattress sleeps better each night and finally, soon, it feels like your second skin. Not much going on here. At least nothing to write about,,,,I am very boring, did make Cynthia my friend on Facebook,,,if she doesn’t want she can cancel, or whatever you do, fine with me, but it kept popping up, like she wanted to be friends. You can never can tell what is legit on here any more , but took chance it was and made her my friend. These pictures of you and Angi look great tonight,,,yes, I know Island life agrees with you. Nothing to talk about, so, good night. Thanks for pictures and your blog, and your TITLES are all OK with me. Love to both,,,vj

    1. That’s a pretty good way to look at it – a perspective I hadn’t thought of (once you’re there…. might as well read it). Not exactly sure why that popped into my head….. but then again, never sure why half the stuff that does……
      Cynthia said she was going to send you a friend request…. she’s a good girl…. a little scatter brained sometimes… but a good girl.
      Busy with a new photo shoot for an actual paying client, so can’t share those pictures, but keeping me busy and mostly out of trouble.
      My face is healed up nicely and all is [now] good with that.
      I see where you all MIGHT be in for some weather…. for your sake, I hope not.
      Thank you for the comments…. always a treat to hear from you~!
      Take care of yourself.
