We be divin’~!

Up and out of bed a smidge before I wanted to this morning…. was snoozin’ pretty good even though I went to bed mostly early…… those mornings are rare and almost always happen when I “can’t” sleep in…… go figure. Got my Queen in bed after feeling mostly poorly most of the day and we both settled in…… altho she did  make a couple of extra trips to the bathroom during the course of the night – she said she felt much better this morning. I took off for a couple of dives [more on those in a minute] this morning and by the time I got back – my Bride was mostly back to her old self…… still being a little cautious, but she did eat her a little bit of a dinner and I’m happy about that. I had a dinner of cheese puffs (not the smartest selection I could have made) and followed that up with a nuked left over burger. Normally I would be distraught about that selection, but besides a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit this morning – it’s all I’ve had all day today….. but it hit the spot and is soaking up most of the vodka that I have had so far……   😉

Underwater visibility still mostly sucks – and no one on the island is exactly sure why. It is obvious it is improving, but it dang sure is taking it’s good old sweet time about it. As I stated previous – it adds a whole new dimension to getting decent pictures…. but I’m learning my way through it now. More camera and light issues today….. I think I figured out the camera issue – the light issue I’m sure is these lights just cannot stand up to professional use……. so whether I want to or not (and I really do) I’m gonna have to get me a new light kit. As my ability progresses – I cannot afford to lose photo opportunities because my lights can’t keep up……  be a dang shame if I had to get a new camera too……  😉   To date though – my new ‘job’ has well “paid for” my current camera set up….. so I can’t beef about it. Time to do some home work……  Nothing huge or exciting on today’s dives. A couple of big sharks, but they didn’t want anything to do with me……. still managed some shots I liked and hope you will too.

Back on the ATV trails tomorrow…….. we just finished having a massive [cool] rain here that should ensure the mud on the trails tomorrow will be ankle deep and the mud holes should be at least knee deep. Always makes for a more interesting ride like that…… hope we have some decent drivers so I don’t have to hop off of my machine to often.  That last rain has cooled it down to a modest 81°. When it the squall first came through, my bride and I both had goose bumps from the rapid cooling….. I like it [briefly]. Looks to be wet most of the rest of the week, but what are ya gonna do – but get out in it and enjoy being there~!

Good Night Ya’ll < < < < < < < < < < < < Thankx for stopping in~!


When you get your lights a LITTLE to close to your subject………

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~!!!! ;-)
