A short day~~ : )

Up again bright and early [actually before sun up here] – to get my day started again for photography and diving~! My Bride slept in which pleases me to no end while I sat and ‘woke up’ at my own pace…….. Gear loaded, a egg, sausage and cheese biscuit wolfed down and I was out the door. Only two dives today as the boat had to be taken back around to the North shore for some maintenance stuff this afternoon – before coming back around here for tomorrow’s business. So ‘only‘ two dives for me today…… seemed almost like a vacation…… the dives were fun and not to terribly chilly and both dives were over almost before I knew it.

Back at the dock – got the boat unloaded and ready for the motor back to the North shore. I gathered up my gear and made the short 5 minute drive back to the house. It was a really nice change to get back while the sun was still high in the sky and nice and warm. My Queen greeted me with a cold beer (to wash the salt out of my mustache) while I got my gear rinsed and hung up. I have spent the bulk of the afternoon making phone calls, making reservations, looking at birthday presents for Grand Daughter, talking with Grandson’s — although a little hectic and hard on this old man’s nerves…. it was a pretty friggin’ awesome afternoon…… My Bride has fed me, I have a drink or 5 under my [proverbial] belt (still in my trunks) – my gear is dry for the first time this week….. tomorrow is another 2 boat, 4 dive day and maybe even Saturday now…… so for an old retired fat guy – I’m pretty much diggin‘ this week~! Not to say I’m not looking forward to a day off or so though – I have some mowing now I need to catch up on before I start diving again. Best part of all this diving is that I have wads of pictures to share with you all~~~~!

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~!!!! ;-)
