Ok – Where am I at………..

Last night kind snuck up on me…… I had an extremely looooong day underwater – followed up by almost 3 solid hours of editing and posting and by the time I got done….. I was done….. I wanted a shower and some rest – so, sorry about buggering out on you  last night. I did a two tank dive in the morning…. chasing folks around under the Sea in some what rapidly became turblent water – not that I couldn’t handle it – it was just exhausting……. factor in my brand spanking new light rig (that is right now seriously positive bouyant – which means I had to constantly fight it to keep down under the water) — we got back to the marina, and since I was the only other “staff” on the boat – felt compelled to help unload the boat……. I humped approximately 16 of the 24 tanks needed off of the boat, before throwing all my gear in the truck and taking off for the West end of the island – to catch a friend whose Son was making his Open water certification dive. I got there JUST in time to put my gear back together, swap out batteries in my camera and head my tired old touchas over to the water…… Always a fun experience watching folks earn their first certification – even more fun when it is a ‘friend’……. or the son [or Daughter] of a friend. FINALLY done…. headed home for drinks and time with my Queen while editing almost 400 pictures……. I wound up saving 68 of those pictures….. but even by my standards…. they were some dang nice looking pictures~!

I was using my new light kit, and not knowing a friggin’ thing about them – I still managed to produce some dang fine looking shots [in my mind]….. so I’m excited to see what my pictures will look like in 3-4 weeks – once I completely understand how the new light rig works~!

Had a doctors appointmet today (follow up for all the crap I have been trying to sort) – ‘Doc’ is VERY happy with my progress so far……. we talked about my BP, my weight gain, dizziness, etc and have a plan for all….. so some more of hurry up and wait…….. but still good news by far~!! Back on the boat tomorrow for a couple of long days of diving before my Mouse and fam come in….. will be taking a breather from work for their vist…. but sure there will be some pictures involved with them as well………………

For now – ready for a shower and some sleep so I will be ready to wrap up a very busy week and get ready for an even busier week coming – but one I am most certainly looking forward to with my Mouse and her family….. ATV’s, possible a snorkeling adventure – zip lining and of course – a little SCUBA diving……. for now~~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
