Vanished like a fart in the wind………..

Got a late night ‘ping‘ last night that one of the cruise ships due in the next day has already cancelled. Wow— that was a shock~!! Knowing (or so I thought) I got to sleep in a little bit — I stayed up considerably later than usual watching re-runs of Seinfeld. It should have dawned on me that when my Bride went to bed early (because she had to get up to go to work) that I probably wasn’t going to sleep in any either. Dammit Emmit…….. This time it was her alarms turn to scare the bejesus out of me…. I laid there and tried in all earnest to ‘snooze’ a little bit — but that jolt awake also woke up my bladder and it became immediately impatient. While I waited for ‘my turn’ in the bathroom – I read a new message that came in saying the second cruise ship had cancelled. Dammit Emmit~!! Not a lot can be done about it except make the best out of what you have. Besides, I like being up with her so I can convince her to have a good breakfast…and… I can make it for her. Which I did and soon had her on her way out the door. I spent my extra couple of hours making me a wonderfully delicious breakfast, loading all my camera equipment and scrolling through FB, before making the quick skip into town to catch the boat. Without cruise ship guests, we had a staggering load of 4 guests on board. Because we were expecting a lot…. the boat was loaded with plenty of dive masters, which made my day free to do nothing but chase people for pictures….. and I did. I also got to ‘play’ a lot with my camera, trying new settings  and stuff. And boy did I….. I hope you see some of it in these most recent shots. The weather broke and and rained and the wind blew and we were all freezing (after all it was down into the upper 70’s~!!)  😉 until we got to hop back into that beautiful blue warm water~!! We’re moving back out to the North shore tomorrow– so back to more ‘sporty’ water……

The next two days will be long days for me. We have our semi-quarterly Wine Pairing cruise tomorrow afternoon. These have grown quite popular this past year – so popular in fact, we are doing 2 of them this week. Tomorrow and Friday afternoon. The Boss really likes when I ‘shoot’ these events – so 2 dives in the morning…. come back, upload dive pictures, shower and then head back to shoot the Wine Pairing. It’s usually 8:00ish before I get back from them, so there will probably not be any blogs…… FB will be ‘iffy‘ as well. Those shoots aren’t really hard, but definitely a pain in the touchas. Oh well, that’s what the boss wants, and the boss may not always be right…… but she is always the boss~~  😉  So I’ll get back on here as quick as I can.

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~!!!! ;-)
