Dang- two days in a row………..

JUST back from a nice dinner out with our island kids. It was supposed to be us and them for billing, but they swooped in under the guise of ‘Our Thanksgiving to you‘ and paid the whole bill. A delightful evening with company being at the top of the list. We have been pelted with rain almost all day and the evening breeze was a nice cool damp-ish kinda breeze that made small goose bumps pop up when it hits you just right. (Especially if you have been on the island long enough for 75 degrees to feel cool to you)~~ We chatted, drank, ate and laughed for a couple of hours enjoying that nice cool breeze before finally calling it for the night. The ‘kids‘ just pinged me to let me know they have made it back to the top of their mountain. My bride is sitting across from me quietly engrossed in what ever it is she is looking at, smiling to herself. I have already had my shower, so that, a very full belly of some stir fry with a batch of chicken thrown in, good company….. a couple bites of a dessert so sweet it makes your teeth hurt….. and I am looking forward to an early night hitting the sack. I thought I only had one more day of diving before we head back to the land of plenty…. but a heart felt ‘plea’ to take pictures Saturday afternoon has now added an extra day of diving to my schedule.

You are not supposed to fly within 24 hours of diving…. but doing the math…. I can get in this one dive and have exactly 24 hours lay off before climbing into the wild blue yonder. Stay calm—- I wouldn’t do it if I thought for a second I could get hurt by doing it. I may be crazy- but like to think I am NOT overly stupid~~ The dive is our monthly “JR” dive….. where we get a load of kids that are learning how to SCUBA dive….. most have their parents with them – and I have to confess…. it makes for some really great pictures….. the kids with their parents diving. Will still give me ample time to get packed and ready for our trip back to the land of plenty.

Two fun dives today on our end of the island….. so I got to hang out here an extra half hour plus got back a half hour earlier than usual. Nothing heart racing about today’s dives…… but some nice pictures out of both of them……. 2 dives tomorrow morning… again on this end, so I have a little extra time at home with my bride. Even Saturday’s dive is out here… so saving me LOTS in gas~! For now— gonna leave you some pix from today and heading for bed.

Good Night Y’all * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 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~!!!! ;-)
