For Whom the Bell Tolls……..

Mildly better nights sleep– up well before my alarm ( I didn’t want to wake up my Bride, who did not have to get up early)…… out, bathroom stuff done and settled in with my lemon water and the news. Got up and loaded all the batteries into their respective slots and got everything hauled out to the truck. Came in and made breakfast and caught up on a little bit of FB before heading out the door. A fairly rough day on the water…. my bad… not rough… sporty~~ 😉  Visibility is still all over the place, but I got a little better grade of pictures today. LOTS of cooperative critters under the water today. I tried out my new mask and absolutely hate it. It doesn’t fit like my old one… it leaks and fogs up terribly, but in all fairness, so did my old one when I got it….. they take a little bit of care and breaking in before they become good and usable. I just hate that break in period. I’m gonna give it another 3 – 5 dives and if it’s not any better, am gonna go shopping again. Them beggars ain’t cheap- so I need to make absolutely sure it’s not gonna work before I spring for another one.

Came home to an email from ‘Doc’– wanted to know if I would be available later in the day…. she wants to call and discuss my Gallbladder Ultrasound. OH-oh….. I got a bad feeling about this….. she usually just puts it all in an email, so I’m a bit concerned she wants to talk. She was supposed to have called 15 minutes ago……… as I was typing that… my phone rang. In a nut shell…. my liver and my gallbladder are fine. She said there was a comment in the paperwork that my pancreas is slightly larger than normal. She looked at a CT scan of my pancreas from last year and said it was normal then. She said that if there was no history of pancreas stuff in my family- she wouldn’t bat an eye about it being slightly larger, but because of family history, she would like me to have an MRI done. She said the MRI is strictly an over abundance of caution on her part, but wants to make sure nothing is left unchecked. Guess I can’t fault her for that.  I guess since it’s for her peace of mind…. I should have asked if she’d pay for it~~ 😉  Obviously I’m kidding. So- I’m gonna get that scheduled now. I kinda wish they’d find ‘something [minor]’ soon….. I’m running out of parts to check~! And according to Doc– my body could just be telling me…. it’s time to lay off the booze for a while. Dammit Emmit~

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~!!!! ;-)
