Birthday and diving…….

Well I guess as most of you have now deduced….. yesterday was my birthday….. officially one year away from being able to get Medicare……. geez that makes me sound old~~ I’m looking forward to it though….. it’s gotta be better coverage than what I have now and a HELLVA lot cheaper~! In this case…. cheaper is a good thing~! I ‘worked‘ yesterday morning…. taking pictures of people here visiting our little sunny warm paradise and getting in some diving. The owner was told by a little bird it was my birthday and she had a special bowl made up with the sweetest, richest, chocolate something or other, topped with strawberries and whipped cream. I powered it down between dives…… although a very long motor to our next dive site over some very “sporty” water… almost made me wish I would have held off…… but it all worked out. Lots and Lots of fun cool stuff on the dives, except sharks. Got a really nice turtle video for you~! Came back, got my gear rinsed and was invited out to a fun little little place in the middle of the rain forest, by a friend. Since my Bride was gonna be late working I took him up on it. We sat, shot the breeze, drank and had a couple of shots of MamaWanna….. I locally brewed elixir that will easily sooth what ails you….. it will also severely inhibit your ability to talk or walk if you over indulge in it. Wanting to get back home to my Queen – I left – ‘just in the nick of time’  😉   I stopped and picked up some Subway sammiches, cause I was starving and I knew Angie would not be in the mood to go out or cook – and I wanted to make sure she got something to eat as well. Finally back here, sammiches in hand, Angie had not been home very long. She had drinks waiting for us and we settled in to hear about each others day. Just about the time we were ready to catch up with the real world….. our internet took one of it’s famous dumps and for the rest of the evening we had hardly any internet and no cable…….Gotta love island life. Apparently the outage was island wide, so it was kinda nice not to be alone stranded here on our rock without being connected…….

More diving today, Angie worked again (½ day) today. I got to swim with the sharks today~!! They were even a little bit cooperative…. Yay~! So got some fun pictures (including sharks) to share over the next couple of days ((as long as our internet holds up)) – for now – ready for a nice cool shower and get ready for another day underwater tomorrow. Boat is out here on this end of the island tomorrow, so 5 minute drive instead of a 35 minute drive…. plus – there is an above average chance I’ll get to dive my favorite site [Armageddon]~!! So another year older and loving every minute of it – especially being able to share it with you all~!! (when we have internet)

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~!!!! ;-)
