After a semi reasonable nights sleep….. up and moving along with my Queen as we both readied for a day of work. My stomach felt better, but not as good as the past week or so…… dammit…….. Got my batteries all bumped charged and loaded into the camera and everything loaded into the truck. I talked myself out of breakfast because I was running a little bit behind and my belly wasn’t calling for chow – although I did finally wind up nuking a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit and inhaling it right before I left. Glad I did as usual. Dive conditions were nasty this morning…. especially on the first dive… wow….. LOTS of crap in the water that made getting decent pictures a real challenge. Second dive site was mildly better and had a couple of friendly sharks and a gorgeous turtle. Had some equipment malfunction (out of the water) so I stopped by the dive shop on the way home and picked up new replacement parts….. I was about due to replace them any way. Another place I don’t even try to skimp on…. dive equipment. Kind of like my parachute…… when you’re your life is depending on it….. don’t go cheap.
Sadly, nothing from Doc yet. I would imagine she is plenty backed up and I’m sure she’ll get to it as quick as she can. One of the very few island “professionals” I have dealt with that I believe in and trust. Scratched the itch for some KFC for dinner. I
ran drove uptown, found a parking spot right next door, a young lady (employee) standing outside, smiled, said ‘Good Afternoon‘ AND opened the door for me. I went in and went straight up to the counter and got another smile and “Good Afternoon” [[it is island custom to greet people with good morning, day, afternoon, etc.]] They had everything I ordered (except pies), boxed it up immediately and handed it to me. I thought I was dreaming (or hallucinating)- wow, wow, wow….. I could get all kind of used to that~! AND the chicken was reasonably prepared…. actually had a little bit of crunch to it~! Probably new employees…… 😉
Diving again tomorrow and on both boats on Saturday. We are having our semi-quarterly “JR” dive Saturday afternoon. It’s a lot of fun chasing all them little pollywogs around, but a lot of work too. It’s worth it though. Turn out is getting better and better with more parents staying to go diving with their kids. Neat to see~!
Good Night Y’all – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Thankx for stopping in~!
