Fun…day Monday ?

Well as you probably figured out…. my day off yesterday wasn’t exactly the kind of day off you want to have many of……. it started off good by getting to sleep in….. but went slightly sideways when my Bride said she wasn’t feeling well and went back in to lay down. I sat quietly and caught up on some on line stuff and waited until she came back out. Sadly, she was not feeling much better. I offered to make her a small breakfast, but she wasn’t up for that. The day wore on – I needed to get the lawn mowed….. it didn’t need it real bad because we have been so dry here….. but there were a couple of random outcroppings that apparently were squeezing water up from somewhere and was getting just downright wooly. Wanting everything to be uniform – I went ahead and mowed the entire yard. And then broke out the weed eater. At the request of my Queen – I worked on a stretched of ground on the other side of the fence which added an extra half our of weed eating (and about 200 fire ant bites from a nest I ‘found‘)……. came in for a cool down when I was finished before loading up and going in to do the ATV yard as well. It was in slightly worse shape than I expected – so I dug in and got it knocked……. It is now well past 2:00 in the afternoon (started around 10:00)…. there is not a dry spot on me. I sat at the table with my Queen who is now feeling a little bit better and commenced to dry and cool off……. I made a couple of needed phone calls, ending with one to Monterey California to the place where I bought my new light system from. I spent 20-25 minutes on the line with a very helpful young man that helped me understand how to use those new lights [properly] He also helped expedite the shipment [back to me] that our illustrious Postal workers here keep sending back to them……..Geeesh – sometimes I start to wonder if living in paradise is worth some of this head ache.

Feeling real good, and anxious to try out my new lights the next day – I reset my camera to the new parameters and was really ready for a shower. Without going into a lot of details…. the next couple of hours went straight into the crapper….. everything is fine [now] but it was a very stressful couple of hours…… but, everything is back on track (shhhh) Diving today started out less than smooth – but the day ended up back on track, so I think I’m gonna get me another nice cool shower, hopefully the rest of the evening is calm and I get a decent night’s sleep – and I can start tomorrow off at least in the right direction…… sorry if I worried any of you. Just life getting in the way.

Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stoppin’ 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~!!!! ;-)
