Back in the water~!

Up this morning bright and early even though I REALLY wanted to keep my happy tired old touchas in bed……… I was sleeping soundly when my internal clock told me to get the hell up so my alarm didn’t disturb my Bride. Up and mostly at ’em…. I rolled out, bumped charged a whole set of batteries (after all it had been over a week since I used any of them!) Fixed my cooler (4 very cold Budweiser’s), some water and some snacks. I was reasonably sure I was going to be ‘bullied‘ into shooting the afternoon boat [a bunch of snorkelers] and I didn’t want to go the entire day without something to eat if I did. While I was politely invited to tag along on the snorkel boat – I unloaded the tanks, grabbed my gear and politely said “Oh, hell no“. They left it at that and I was soon on the road back to my Queen. She was still asleep when I left this morning [which delighted me to no end] and I left as quietly as my old truck would let me.

She was up and making a drink when I pulled in – and for the first time in well over a week, our routine was back to something close to ‘normal’. I told her about the dives. Nothing extraordinary on them – first dive had “ermazing” visibility [150+’]…. second dive – ‘vis’ was horrible – but  still a good dive. I managed a few salvageable shots and everybody had a good time……… It sure felt good to be back underwater~!

Back at the house now…… ALL pictures (from the last 2 days) edited and put up in their respective places….. have had a bite to eat and 2 or 8 drinks…… ready for a shower and some very much needed sleep. Caught up with our Damn Neighbors a couple of days ago…. regaling us of a new drink they have come across…. sure do love hearing from them (even when they are feeding us a line of [suspected] crap about their [still have] drinking prowness~~~~ bunch of rookies… but we love them……………..

Longer day tomorrow. 2 tank dive in the AM – then a 1 tank dive in the afternoon for a “Dive with your Jr” day. Something the shop does Quarterly or so……. getting your [age appropriate] kids to go diving with you…… that is always a lot of fun – watching kids diving with their parent(s). Looking forward to shooting that~!

Got a late birthday gift in the mail from my Honeybear…… sent me a pair of ‘deck’ shoes that I absolutely love…… she got me a pair before – but this pair I can actually put on without getting winded (first pair was JUUUST a smidge small) They will be here in just over 2 weeks and me and ‘Ma‘ are just absolutely beside ourselves in anticipation of seeing her and her ‘crew’…….. That’s it for now……. more tomorrow….

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~!!!! ;-)
