A boring Presidents day…….

Presidents day……. I had a full paragraph started on the topic, and erased it. trying to keep this as non political as I can……. sometimes it’s a challenge. Nothing special going on for us on this ‘holiday’ (?). Slept in a wee tiny bit, had our standard issue nice breakfast. My Queen took off for some grocery shopping and I stayed behind and knocked out the dishes. Rest of the day was watching the boob tube. One good movie with Gerard Butler called Chasing Mavericks. Had to pay for it – but happy we did. Good show, based on a true story. Definitely recommend it. Watched another one called The Silencing…. pretty much a waste of time. Good story line, but so much of it was filmed ‘in the dark‘ you couldn’t see anything and made it really hard to track characters. My viewpoint is that producers and directors (if any of you out there are reading this) is that it is a cheap way to make a movie, because you don’t have to worry about makeup, costume design or anything else important to making a movie~!

Now time to ‘do my stuff’ and here I am. Going to try and get on the boat tomorrow for that 300th dive I have been talking about for a week now……. I just got an email this morning requesting me to be the official underwater photographer for the Pier Clean up on Wednesday. Honestly – in the big wide world, not THAT big of a gig….. but to me it will be. A challenge to catch 30 some divers underwater in a 1/2 mile stretch of water. May not sound like much to you all….. but trust me when I tell you – that is a lot of swimming, let alone taking pictures during it. At least I will have some pictures I will be able to share with you. For now, would like to get in my 300th in at a dive site like Armageddon…. or somewhere, where there are some sharks and not chasing people around cleaning trash up off the seafloor…… we’ll see.

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~!!!! ;-)
