Another ‘no’ night —

Four more dives again today……. Surely you understand how much I like to dive by now – but I gotta tell you – these 4 dives a day are starting to take their toll. Honestly though – I think some of it is because I am going to the same 3 or 4 dive sites every time….. day after day and that gets just a touch repetitive….. it helps chasing all those college kids around and keeping them out of serious trouble….. but it is kindly turning into work….. something I am trying to give up~! Seriously tho, I like that it is keeping me busy, I get a charge [mostly] out of watching those kids flop around underwater and the expressions on their face when they see new things [to them]….. plus- I am scoring a ton of ‘free’ diving…. which is a huge benefit for me.

Today however…… sadly…. I had to admit I was cold….. not just chilly as the previous days dives were – but actually cold…… distracting cold…… dammit Emmit~! Multiple dives a day will do that – especially with water temperature down as cold as I have seen it since we have been on island (78°). When I left the boat this afternoon – I stopped by one of the local dive shops (where I have got most of my equipment from) and ordered a 3 mil vest, as the only part of me really getting cold is my chest….. besides – I don’t want to have to fight to get into any kind of wetsuit – even a shorty….. None in stock – naturally – but now ordered and is supposed to be in Monday~! I am told the boat will remain out West for the rest of the week – that is a good thing for me as it seriously cuts down on my commute plus I can come home for lunch and get to spend a little bit of time with my Queen. Also found out tomorrow is a 1 boat day (no afternoon dive) – so I get a short day tomorrow~! Looking forward to that~! I’m behind on multiple things and will be able to use that time tomorrow afternoon to get caught up a little bit.

Well durn – didn’t think I’d get this much out tonight…… so gonna leave it here with pictures from today…..

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~!!!! ;-)
