I THINK I’m getting to old for this……..

I hate that expression – I really do… but kinda had to bow down to it today. What I thought was going to be a normal 2 tank dive and then chase a family around the pier while they snorkeled……. turns out the boat was the snorkel trip, which included some site seeing and some more snorkeling. I had already run a dozen scenarios through my tired old brain on how I could come up with some unique shots of snorkelers that I thought would “wow” my employer….. a little tougher assignment than I initially thought. But I loaded onto the boat, got my gear assembled and started working on my camera. I had about 8 teenagers on the boat that I was charged with photographing while they snorkeled. Dang but them little beggars swim fast~! Luckily I didn’t have to try and conserve air – so I could huff and puff as much as I needed chasing them little beggars. I discovered the afternoon sun this time of year is a bugger to shoot into… but I adapted and managed to pull off some shots I think “the boss” will be thrilled with……….. finally done – I pinged my bride for a ride (she had my truck picking the ‘kids‘ up and turns out they had their own set of challenges….. lost luggage and all)…… Readers Digest condensed version….. kids JUST now got their luggage and back at the house (10:00pm) after landing at 2:00 this afternoon.

Fast forward to our house – My Queen went and picked up a child hood friend of hers that her and her husband were here visiting our little island while doing some sailing on a newly purchased sail boat. She brought them to the house, we got some Pizza Gusto and had a marvelous 3+ hours of munching on pizza, drinking and discussing whatever came up in conversation.  They eventually was ready for some rest – so my Bride ran them into town to get them  on their way back to their boat while I started editing pictures. Sorry, but not a lot [actually none] of fun, pretty underwater shots today — but I think you may still get a kick out of some of these pictures……… I’m taking tomorrow off to run new found friends around the island [I think] if they need it……. resuming getting back in  the water on Wednesday……… right now – I severely need a shower and some sleep. LOTS of booze – sufficient amount of pizza to keep my belly quiet for a little bit……. yeppers – should be some decent sleeping tonight~!

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~!!!! ;-)
