Great news~!

Another miserable night trying to sleep…… oddly, I’m not really concerned about it, because I think I will work my way out of it as soon as I get a little more used to the Chantix and get into a little more settled routine…… so far I’m doing good. Even though I’m not getting the sleep I would like – I am getting a lot of rest and that is helpful. Up and going – another good breakfast that was twice as much as I usually have…… I think my Queen is trying to get me fat(ter)……. we both had a doctors appointment today….. both being follow up appointments to make sure we are staying on track with meds and that they are doing what they’re supposed to do. ‘Doc’, happy with what she saw with me – we discussed other issues…… nothing [hopefully] very serious but still needs addressed. I don’t want to go into that right now because it is all speculation at this point. So more on that later…… the good news, no- the great news…… a little bit before we headed out for our appointment – I got a text from the local dive shop asking if I could run into the shop for a couple of minutes….. sure – and away I went.

Keeping it short for brevity sakes….. I was offered a deal that is quite a bit more than what I was hoping for~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! First part (and I have already accepted) is…. I dive ‘free‘ for the rest of the year – as much as I want to dive~! She also offered a salary per week….. regardless of how much I ‘work’ – as long as I continue to furnish dive photographs for them to use on their web sites. The amount she is offering – I think is too much, at least for now. My Bride thinks I should take it. Lots of other options being discussed to add or supplement cash flow for my photography talent. (Dive packages, etc)  I’m mulling it all over and trying to make a smart decision. Bottom line….. my work in learning this particular craft is starting to pay dividends….. and I am happy, excited and proud about it. Still lots of stuff to figure out – but I am definitely on the path I wanted to be….. Yay~!! The way it stands right now – I start ‘work’ this week….. tomorrow is going to be a couple of ‘fun’ dives….. starting Wednesday, 4 dives that day and then working with clients, students and package deals for the rest of the week……. I can’t wait~!  It should also keep me in wads of new pictures and stories for you all. Stay tuned~!

Good Night Ya’ll : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : Thankx for stoppin 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~!!!! ;-)
