Mothers Day~~

Sorry about skipping last night – but by the time I came back from my third dive of the day [Dive with your Junior day]…. and got my gear rinsed…. almost 400 pictures from the entire day loaded…. edited, sorted and filed correctly….. I had time for a quick bite to eat, a shower and some sack time. Even though I knew I got to sleep in the next morning….. I was worn out~! Especially…… ESPECIALLY if you’re following my FB posts…. you know that I had a wonderfully magnificent SHARK experience yesterday~!!!! I not only ‘bumped’ one shark off of me using my camera…………… before it was all said and done – I bumped 5 sharks off of me….. I cannot honestly say it was 5 different sharks (at that time they were moving VERY fast and it was really hard to tell if they were the same ones or not). I did my level best to be cool as I knew I had at least 4 different sharks circling me and coming at me when I did my “call”. Instead of fleeing for the safety of the surface like my last encounter…… I stayed in position and used my camera as a shield to bounce off the bigger guys (biggest I’m estimating was 6.5′) didn’t really matter though….. from my vantage point – they all might as well have been whales~! Trust me when I tell you – – – as someone who has jumped out of an airplane [from some pretty crazy heights] well over a thousand times……. THAT was an adrenalin rush that would rival any almost any jump~! The beauty of it — I got several awesome shark shots that I am just proud to pieces of~!! Yes….. I get an immense amount of pleasure knowing I ‘got that shot’~!!!!!!! I apparently left my truck keys laying out on the table over night – along with ALL my gear – but- EVERYTHING was still there this morning….. so I guess our little place is a little safer than I thought~~

Laid in bed and ‘forced‘ my self to stay there until almost 08:00 when my Queen finally rolled out. I dutifully made the bed and straightened up the bedroom before finally getting my access to do my thing. After getting good and woke up  I made us both a nice breakfast. I cleaned up and did dishes before going out to mow the yard (yes I JUST did that 3 days ago) but we have had rain and it is back to growing like no body’s business. Yard done, I drove to the dump to drop some stuff off – got gas for my truck, stopped by the dive shop to drop off a flash drive for the boss before coming back out and making us drinks. I jumped in and made what turned out to  be a very feeble attempt at dinner for my Queen (T-bone steak and baked tater and garlic bread) Long story to that one – but I mostly loused it up. I am [sadly] out of practice doing that – but am committed to doing better from here on out.

Mothers Day today for lots…… I hope all you “Mother’s” out there had an extra special day today. I hope you got to talk to your Mom if you’re lucky enough to still have her in your life. If you are now the ‘Mother’ in the situation – I hope the other people in your life at least tried to make your day special…… You’ve earned it and dang near every day should be ‘Mothers Day’.

Diving for the next 3 days that I know of………  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~!!!! ;-)
