Well, as I mentioned on my last blog— I would be shooting a couple of wine pairings and that they usually run late enough, I generally do not have time to do much of anything by the time I get back and get the editing and posting done of those pictures. I was correct. I went from putting the pictures in my gallery straight into bed as I have to get up early to dive the next day. I did get a little reprieve this set. After the Thursday pairing tour, I was informed that the next mornings boat was cancelled. They only had 2 divers and they backed out at the last minute…… I used that opportunity to sleep in a little bit–and– actually did…. to almost 08:00~! Ermazing~!! The Friday pairing was out of the ordinary in several ways. 1) It was the second pairing in a row (due to high demand) 2) My Queen went on this one. I has asked her if she wanted to try one and she said yes- and wound up having a ball~! 3) We had to deal with a down pour and ensuing solid showers for the entire second half of the tour. (First time it has ever rained on us) Most of our guests managed to stay fairly dry…… not quite the case with me as I moved around tending to boat duties and getting pictures. After we docked, I stood my ‘post’ on the dock helping guests off of the boat. Problem is, a bunch of the guests didn’t want to get wet, so they were very slow getting off of the boat, so I was soaked. All part of the job. Finally back home and dried off/out and sat down to edit and post pictures.
I tried to sleep in again this morning but my bladder wasn’t having it…. so up a little earlier than I wanted…… but it’s all good. The rain apparently spurred a growth spurt in our lawn and I decided that I would mow today but intermittent rain all day today (tis the season) kept the yard wet enough I did not want to attempt it. I instead used most of the quiet day to do my on-line learning for my Dive Master certification. That took the bulk of the day but it is done and I passed my exams. Now all I have left [I think] are a couple of in water tests (mostly swimming challenges)…….. Finally repaired to the couch for a movie my bride picked out…. she liked it…. me, not so much. Stopped to make me a couple of Tuna fish sammiches and now on here while watching/listening to the Raiders-Bengals game…… Hopefully dry enough tomorrow to mow…… we’ll see.
Good Night Y’all~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Thankx for stopping in~!
