Gearing up ?

Dammit Emmit…… I started this over an hour ago…….. got my title put up… which I struggled with by the way…….. you wouldn’t think that something that generally only involves a small handful of words would be a challenge…. but I’m afraid dear readers….. you would be mistaken…… Now that I am reading what I put there for the title– I’m not exactly sure why I chose it. It’s our neighbors fault…… no, not our Damn Neighbors….. our next door neighbors. They came over just as I put the title in….. a drink ‘or two‘ later with some fun conversation and now I’m not sure why I chose that title….. Dammit Emmit~!

After some deliberation…..thinking, as it were….. I think the reason I put that as the title, is, in the next couple of days I am going to be inundated with stuff. Fun Stuff! Stuff that requires learning and work! For an elderly old fuddy-duddy….. I’m looking forward to it. My Queen agreed to me getting a camera that I have wanted for a loooooooooong time…… long before I left the working population, long before I could ever justify owning this particular camera. It is supposed to be in, tomorrow~!!! I feel like a kid at Christmas……. There will be a lot of work involved learning the particulars to this camera (I had a less expensive version of it I used for skydiving pictures), so I hopefully will come up to speed on this one fairly quick. The hopes is to start getting a few more photo shooting opportunities where I can make some serious money doing them. If nothing else…. I will be able to take some great shots of my Grand Babies when we are back in the states…. ALSO tomorrow….. I will be picking up an order from Home Depot, that will have everything I should need, to tear out, remove and replace the tile in our kitchen. Again, talked it over with my Queen and think it will behoove us to go ahead and put a new floor in our kitchen. (Understand it is well under 100 sq.ft) but I had to buy a bunch of tools to support that effort. I think it is going to pay off for us in the long run. If not, well I need the exercise and two, I won’t get sick to my stomach every time I look at the floor in the kitchen…….AND…. on top of that…. I’m getting closer to wrapping up my Dive Master certification……. so LOTS going on for the old fat guy. Will try to get some pictures of everything along the way. Just got notice….. no boat again tomorrow 🙁 and I’m off Wednesday to get the windshield in the truck replaced….. so- busy week, even if I’m not diving. Will be taking some pictures, but will probably have to resort to putting up older SCUBA pictures for you until I get back in the water~~~

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~!!!! ;-)
