Off Gassing Sunday~~

Got to sleep in a tad tiny bit this this morning for the first time in a week…. and it felt really good. That week of diving, as fun as it was, I think was starting to take its toll on the old fat boy. While I don’t know near near as much as I probably should about nitrogen building up in the body – I know you can get yourself in a peck of trouble if you aren’t careful with it. I received and heeded multiple warnings from some of the more advanced divers about extending safety stops and allowing ample time to off-gas….. that is letting the Nitrogen escape from your body. Something I took to heart today. While I got a heckva lot more done today than I thought I was going to – I did it all at a nice slow pace and there was was very little physical exertion involved in any of it. I even put off mowing the grass, although honestly that wasn’t a big challenge….. I really wasn’t in the mood to do it and the occasional rain shower helped me decide to keep my touchas planted in this chair.

I ran in town this morning and picked up breakfast for us, and the rest of the day worked on the computer. Paying bills, getting stuff ready to have my taxes done….. Spent some time on tutorials for my camera, trying to refine some shooting abilities…. got keep making them pictures better and better so I can start charging for them~! News that # 4 (in line of order only) Daughter may be coming to see us too…. YAY~!!

Next door neighbors have pinged and asked if we may possibly be able to help themĀ  at their stores in town this week. I guess the young lady that normally works there, Brother got shot in a nasty weekend of violence here on the island. 12 people shot – six of them died, rest various degrees of injuries. Sadly, most of that crap happened a lot closer to us than we care for…… I still feel relatively safe, as the violence so far is almost always between locals……but it is getting harder and harder to accept. This may be an island paradise – but there is a lot to be said about personal safety – and the mickey mouse police department here on this island dang sure ain’t gonna get nothing done about it. Scary to think where it might it end up at – but I’ll pack up my Queen and head back to the land of plenty long before I feel threatened.

[[fast forward 2+ hours]]] Just sent the neighbors home…. discussed local and current events…. opportunities to be useful if they need our help and all the news that is news…. time to put up some pictures and get ready for what ever tomorrow may bring…… hopefully no more gun shots…….

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~!!!! ;-)
