Shame on me…………..

I have managed to get myself busy enough (maybe too busy??)… that I’m having a heckva time trying to keep up with the others things I normally do…… Not sure yet if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I know there are at least a couple of folks who actually look forward to reading my ramblings on here each night (luv ya Vera) but as I start admitting that I am no longer 25 years old…… well- I still am in my brain…. but my body is screaming “hold on just a second fat boy”………  Today was a very light boat today…… we actually had twice as many staff as we did guests…. yes- 2 divers and 4 staff. A couple of them are working on their Dive Master certification. Technically, I am too, but I’m taking a little different path than the two young whipper snappers that are zooming around the ocean like they don’t have a freekin‘ brain…… fun (although terribly annoying) to watch. We got finished with both dives….. I actually did nothing except take pictures those 2 loads…… it was kinda nice. Afterward – we all met up out West beside the Pier for some hands on Dive Master training…… while I am taking a slightly different approach….. it has been made clear my certification will not be “handed” to me…. I will have to earn it. So we spent a couple of hours being put to the test…… I will admit- I may have got to ‘slide’ through a couple of the assignments, but the Instructor also made sure I was capable of doing what was needed by telling me to perform demonstrations of certain tasks. I did as asked and he was happy with what he saw. I am not going to let the certification be “handed” to me…. I have a lot more pride than that…… but graciously accept a ‘pass’ here and there. Finally done for the day… back home with my Bride. A Dinner of stuffed green peppers and corn on the cob. I didn’t think I was hungry but made short order of everything on my plate when it was set in front of me…….yum~!

Filling out forms for Medicare, trying to get on line training done for Dive Master…. still need to get showered up and ready for bed so I can do pretty much the same thing all over again tomorrow……. I guess from your side of this conversation…. it sounds like I might be whining…… nothing farther from the truth~! Just hope ‘some’ of you understand a little better, when I don’t get on here and ramble a little bit for you~~~ Pix from today……

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~!!!! ;-)
