Back to ‘work’

Normally a day off today- and would have been a day of recuperation after family leaves…. but today was “JR Dive Day” at the shop – and that is almost always a ‘have-to-do’ dive for pictures. Besides – I was ready to take a swim…. after all – it’s been a couple of days since my last dive  😉  I opted to skip the 2 morning dives…. primarily because my touchas was draggin’ from a hectic week and besides that- the boat was packed~! I think I may have mentioned before, I do not like the boat when it’s crowded….. for multiple reasons. So, I waited until the 1 afternoon dive today, the JR dive boat. This is a day the shop sets aside each month, so the young kids can come out and dive. It is also a great time to for the parents to go on a dive with their kids and get in some real quality time with them. It’s always a fun dive and lots of fun on the boat as well. The little folks get an extra special kick out being able to jump off the top of the boat after diving. Outside of some pretty ugly rain showers after we got up out of the water – you couldn’t have asked for a nicer day….. The dive went well checking out the Shallow Wrecks, visibility was good and almost no current~! Perfect~! I got lots of pictures and just not got them put up……. now some time to write. I am taking tomorrow off. The plan was to get the mowing caught back up again, but I guess we have a week of rain coming at us – so we’ll see if I get the mowing done or not. I have several other odds and ends [inside] I need to contend with if it does rain…. or I can just sit and do nothing. I go back to ‘work’ Tuesday again.

I found a bunch of pictures of Steph and Josh’s visit that I forgot I had, so I need to get them edited so I can share them with you. For now—- I’m gonna enjoy this nice cool breeze blowing through the house…. may even try and get in a late movie……

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~!!!! ;-)
