Headin’ for the holiday~

Went to bed a little bit early last night knowing I was getting up early for diving. I struggle to call it work as I am doing TWO things I dearly love doing and getting paid to do it. Plus– my latest method of communicating my contact method has drastically increased the amount of tips I am getting….. so I definitely struggle with calling it work. Yeah, it can be a pain in the butt sometime…… but honestly, is there anything that isn’t once in a while ?? I just got good and asleep last night (early) just to be awaken by a clattering out in the driveway. No, it wasn’t Santa arriving early, but our [slightly inebriated) neighbor apparently bouncing off of parked cars and stationary buildings and cursing them for being in the way. He is usually driven home in that condition and dropped off at his house, so we put up with the traffic and the noise at his house…… guess he couldn’t find a ride last night. Anyhow— hearing that outside of our darken house got my adrenalin flowing….. so I got to go in and lay back down and watch the ceiling fan for ‘a while‘ before fading back off to sleep.

Up bright and early, a good hot breakfast, truck loaded and a short jaunt into town to board the boat. Still out on this end of the island because of our Christmas winds wreaking havoc with the water on our usual North Shore dive spots. Another really small boat today – with just 2 client divers. I “hate it” for the shop, but it sure is enjoyable having all that room on the boat. Plus, it is makes it really easy to get pictures of just two divers….. versus 10 or so…… Tomorrow from what I understand we have a boat full. Which is good for business. They are all off of the cruise ship that is coming in tomorrow. Those loads are usually fairly stressful, but can also be good in generating photography tips, so I’ll appreciate the opportunity~!! Also, like I said – I finally got the part I needed for my strobe and man-0-man was it nice having a fully functional camera again…… and because I had lots of ‘free’ time today …. got some crazy good pictures~! Can’t wait for you to see them~! Already had my shower and pictures up in my gallery already (another perk of a small boat load- I get done with editing usually really quick). So gonna get my FB stuff done and maybe get in bed a little bit early……. hopefully neighbor gets a ride tonight  😉

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~!!!! ;-)
