From diving to driving……..

Tried to sleep in this morning – but the old belly and bladder had different plans…. right on the edge of way to friggin’ early to get up – I did it anyway, primarily because I went to bed early last night AND had a pretty presentable nights sleep….. so in pretty good shape for rolling out that early~~~ One of the ‘nice’ things about riding trails, is they start a lot later….. so I not only had me a tasty wonderful breakfast that my Queen whooped up – but got to screw around online to my hearts content before gathering up everything, closing up the house – and heading into the yard. ‘Kids‘ just got there and was getting everything ready to drop in our laps. We started doing our thing while the kids ran around and did theirs. Somewhere in the mix – Angie ran them out to the Air Port and dropped them off while me and Jamal finished up the second tour of the day. Absolutely LOVED the two tours we had today…… even the second one when I had a rider with me…. Oliva…. I’m guesstimating 8 or 9 years old…. but she done good….. and rode like a trooper. ALL the riders today – took their time, respected us and the machines, asked good questions and was just a pleasure to tour with. I’ll take these kind of groups – 4 times a day, every day~!

Back from the noon tour about 1:30….. bid all the people good bye- got the machines cleaned, gassed up and put away and ready for the next time. That next time is Saturday….. YES…. day off tomorrow~!  I thought about getting on a boat, albeit briefly. A day without diving or driving…. sounds pretty good to me right about now. My Bride made us a dinner of Cordon Bleu with rice and corn and I have been working on it while working on this. I’m ready for a shower to wash the dust off me….. and am looking forward to a day of NOT diving or driving…… at least for now. For now, I’m gonna put up some trail pictures from today…. and we’ll see what tomorrow brings.

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~!!!! ;-)
