Gettin’ there~!

Up this mornin’ mostly against my will…….. didn’t really want to get up but my bladder ‘insisted‘ and since it was close enough to alarm time —- I just went ahead and stayed up…….. Dammit Emmit~! Still mostly dark, but oh so quiet and almost cool……… Gotta take that little bit of enjoyment wherever you can get it…… My Queen didn’t need to be up for a while – so I crept around “quiet as a mouse” until it was her time to roll out……. I started the coffee and quietly opened the door to the bedroom…… I normally go in and pat/rub her butt[tocks] until she is good and awake…… not sure what the issue was this morning but at the sound of the door opening I hear the bark “I’m awake~!” Dammit Emmit…….. okay – back to what I was doing…… dealing with a camera battery that did not want to charge…. I swapped out the strobe batteries and was good there…….. As my Queen got ready for her day of employ….. I tried to get ready for mine….. not sure why – but I kept getting in her way… so I backed out, to try and keep the peace…… she finally loaded her stuff into her car and headed for work. I went into overdrive to get done everything I wanted to get done (not needed to get done – wanted to get done) Huge difference. Still not feeling like my universes have aligned yet – I tore out the door…… made it ALMOST to the end of the driveway – came back – unlocked the house, picked up my phone and tore out the driveway again….. DAMMIT Emmit~! Battery to my camera wasn’t charging right….. forgot my phone……. last couple of days things not “going right” continue……. deep breath…. enjoy the sunshine…….. ignore the fact that it is raining like hell and the sun is still shining – and keep going…… boy a cigarette would go good right about now. Dammit Emmit~! None in the truck – so I pop in a piece of gum and keep going……… First dive – nice — entertaining….. lots to take pictures of….. camera battery dies….. DAMMIT EMMIT~!!!! I planned for that and had back up battery ready [between dives] – disassembled the camera… swapped batteries…. ready to go again. Got ‘kicked’ halfway through first dive and realized (after I got back on the boat) I lost a weight pocket from that kick…….really ??? DAMMIT Emmit~! Improvise weight for second dive….. done – new battery working great – weight improvisation working great…. really fun dive~! Sharky~! Stopped by ye old dive shop on the way home and picked up a new camera battery and a new weight pocket…. $ 130.00 thank you very much~! Other than ‘that’ – The day ended on a high note….. other than my Queen wasn’t home when I got there…. but she is now….. brought Mickey D’s with her….. I knew I loved her for a reason~~~~ Belly is full…… drinks are flowing freely. Diving tomorrow (My Bride has court)…… my day may very well turn into a 4 dive day……. won’t know until tomorrow…….. gotta get a LOT of batteries charged up – just in case~!

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~!!!! ;-)
