Never the mane shall tweet…….

A semi-reasonable, half messed up, decent nights sleep…kinda…sorta….  LOL 😉 Got up a smidge earlier than intended to deal with the call of nature – and then just stayed up….. gave me a couple of extra minutes to enjoy the cool solitude of the dark house before my Bride came stumbling out and bumping into everything. I made a small breakfast for us while she did her breathing treatments and it wasn’t long before she was out the door. Because the dive boat is still docked out here on the West end – I got an extra 20 minutes or so before I headed into town. However. Apparently, the decision was made, for whatever reason….. the dive was not going to start until 10:00 a.m. instead of the customary 08:30. Apparently, as well, no one bothered to notify anybody about it except the captain (one of the more important folks) and the Dive Masters….. apparently also, there is no need to notify the lowly photographer…. I could have slept in, made a serious breakfast and then headed into town. Hate when I don’t get the memo…….. so I humped all my stuff back to the truck and trudged the mile and a quarter back to the house – where I had me a banana drizzled with honey [that is really not as good as I thought it would be] and watched some videos until it was time to head back into town. Nothing overly awesome to rage on about for these two dives. I chased newbies around underwater and tried to keep them still long enough to get at least one decent picture. I did find out at the beginning of my second dive – apparently my camera housing has sprung a leak and it clouded over the entire lens surface. I knew something was wrong underwater, but couldn’t figure it out until I got back on deck. Using a little bit of creative editing – I managed to save about a ¼ of the pictures I took…. so I do have some new pictures for you…. once my camera gear dries – I need to sit down and try and figure out what the issue is…. I have lots of spare 0 rings and door seals, so I should be able to fix it once I understand the problem. Life’s little problems.

My Queen finally made it back from her day of employ… dragging home a bag of Mickey D’s goodness. I have inhaled the 2 double fish filets she got me….. and debating about hitting the double quarter pounder……. what little good sense I have in me says wait until tomorrow…….. might probably ought to listen to  that piece of intel…….

Tomorrow starts a very busy week running the ATV business. Angie runs the office while I pull guide duty and [of course] taking pictures. It’s been drier than a popcorn fart on this end of the island this past month or so and I have been told the trails are a special kind of dusty right now…… oh good. At some point, apparently fairly soon, we are supposed to get quite a bit of rain….. which will turn all that dust into mud…. oh good. Out of the next 10 days – 7 of them are booked with tours…… oh good. First day off in almost 2 weeks is Friday…. not sure whether to go dive or stay at the house and not do a $%^&*&^%$ thing…. we’ll see. Have dinner reservations for Easter Sunday at our favorite place (on this end of the island) and what is going to make it more wonderful is that 2 of our dearest friends are joining us. Life is good~! Well I went a tad over….. dammit emmit~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
