Still here…….

I figured I’d better jump on here and write a little bit before Miss Vera flies out here to the islands and tans my hide……  🙂  Been busy, busy, busy here this past month. With the island kids out exploring the vast wilds of Alaska and my bride running their ATV office for them while they’re out in the Yukon and me diving my brains out while she is doing that…. sprinkle in some yard mowing, going out for a bite to eat every once in a great while….. the day catches up [and passes] me sometimes…. and just to pooped to sit here and type sometimes…… so, feeling showered, rested and not too hungry (right now)….. figured I’d better try and catch you up a little bit.

Our damn neighbors are now about as far away from us as they can get…. out in the boondocks of  OR-A-GONE….. out in big foot territory…… last I checked in they said they were “enjoying” the cool weather….. we’ll see how long that lasts……   😉 Half of the island kids are back on island now [the ugly one]….. Cynthia is still  hanging out in the states for a wee bit extra before coming back to the island. My Queen [I guess] will continue to fill in for her at the ATV office until she comes back………. As you should know if you watch any of my FB stuff…… I have been diving like it was my job…… oh wait a minute….. it IS my job…… and I’m LOVING every second of it….. I really struggle to call it a job because I enjoy it that much…. especially since me and my gear are evolving to take better and better pictures. I’m deleting pictures now – I would have “killed for” a mere 3 months ago…. (and danged happy about it)   😉 I have 2 more days of diving left this week….. yes I know… that will be 7 days in a row, but that’s just how it works out sometimes…. Sunday is “special”……. I am doing a night dive…….. I have done multiple night dives and pretty much hated every one of them. This will be my first ‘working’ night dive and I have to admit – I’m kinda amped about trying my hand at under water photography…. at night~!  I know it will give me that nice black back ground that I like….. but it adds just an entire BUTT load of other things to factor in when taking a picture. I have all the right equipment I need for it…… now I just need to apply myself…….. This ought to be interesting…………………………

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~!!!! ;-)
